My Big List of Goals I’m Going to Accomplish in 2022 Week 35 of 52

Here’s my big list of things I want to accomplish in 2022:

Remodel The Kitchen 

It took me nearly all week to get the kitchen primed and ready for paint because of the dark blue paint that was there before, but I finally got that part done. 

After The Girl heads back {she’s here for the long weekend} I’ll get the paint on the walls and the final coat of paint on the window trim and once that’s all good and dry, the HH will be able to install the new window covering and hang the light fixture. 

I’m hoping that by this time next week the light fixture and shade will be in and we can then start to make a game plan for ripping out the rest of the cabinets {and the sink and dishwasher}.  

Sell Enough Rugs to Buy an AGA Stove DONE!!!

I hit my goal of selling enough of my 2022 hooked rugs and pillows in my Etsy shop to pay for my new Duck Egg Blue AGA cooker.  I have now shifted to saving my rug hooking funds for a “research trip” to England to find the perfect scone {so I can duplicate it in my new oven}.  

Fill the Canning Cupboard 

This past week I canned more tomato ketchup and hot sauce to the canning cupboard. Yee-Haw! It’s filling up. 

So far this year I have canned:

Not canned, but in jars:

Earn Enough Money Selling {?????} To Pay For Our 2022 Grocery Tab By The End Of The Year.

I’ve decided to wait until fall to list my beach finds. I know this is cutting my selling season a bit short, but with so many other things going on right now, I just don’t have the time to add another thing to my to-do list.

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables.

It’s all about the tomatoes right now. 🙂 I can’t get them canned fast enough so I’ve been giving them away. I do think we grew just about the right amount though this year, and will probably plant as many next year.

But hopefully I will have come up with a few more recipes by then.

Keep The Crafts… In The Craft Room.

It’s not so much that the crafts are in the dining room these days… it’s the tomatoes! 

Tap Our 2 Maple Trees and Make Maple Syrup {DONE}

It was a good experience, and we’re going to do it again next year {although I would like to find a few more trees to tap so our yield is a bit higher}. 

Make a Quilt Top

This is the stack of white fabric I need to cut into 2 1/2″ squares and it’s still collecting dust. But September won’t be as crazy, right? I’ll get it done. I’m just not sure when.

1 Craft / Blog Free Day a Week {I’ve had 33 craft/blog free days this year so far.}

I wasn’t planning on taking Friday off from the internet but I woke up not feeling so well and ended up going back to bed and sleeping until 9am and then taking a 2 hour nap later in the day. 

I was back to normal on Saturday though so I probably just over exerted myself canning. HA!

Be More Intentional With My Time

I threw a frying pan {more about that later}. 😉

Keep My Husband Busy 

The HH was pretty busy this past week. He did the yard maintenance, installed two garage door openers, sanded the trim and doors in the hallway, filled the propane tanks {for canning} and played dock boy for me and The Girl. 

The HH’s Honey Do List {so far} for 2022

  • Take over cooking {I’ll still do the baking and canning}
  • Cut down the cluster of trees in the backyard DONE
  • Build a new set of stairs down to the water. 
  • Fill the field {with soil} DONE

  • Order 4 cords of firewood by the end of May and stack them DONE
  • Sand the floors in the entire house DONE
  • Install new garage door openers DONE {new addition}

My House Projects For This Year {so far}

It was a good week for me too in the house projects department. I primed the walls in the kitchen and painted the trim on the window in the kitchen as well {it still needs another coat of paint though}. 

Things I need to get done this year:

  • Finish painting the outside of the house
  • Finish painting the inside of the house 
  • Make something to hang above our new console table
  • Make it look like people actually live here {working on it!}
  • New window treatment for the kitchen window {ordered!}

Try 24 New Recipes {17 down, 7 to go}

This past week I shared a recipe for tomato ketchup. Also, the Duck Lady mentioned that now that her farmstand is slowing down a bit {summer people heading home} if I want to, I can try out her AGA in the afternoons when she’s not baking. 

I think I might take her up on it too and bake a loaf of bread. 

So far this year I have shared the following recipes:

Listen to 12 Audiobooks {12/12 so far} DONE

I’m still working my way through Linda Tatelbaum’s book Carrying Water as a Way of Life: A Homesteader’s History.

Audiobooks I’ve listened to this year:  

Get a Fishing License and Catch a Fish

I saw him out there twice this past week on the dock trying to catch something… But so far, no fish. Maybe he needs better bait?
