My Big List of Goals I’m Going to Accomplish in 2022 Week 43 of 52

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

Remodel The Kitchen 

We are about a week away from countertops, backsplash and our new sink!!! 

The plumber will be here a few days after that and I can tell you already the first thing I’m going to do is make a big ol’ mess baking so I can test out the 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. But since the stove was damaged… We now have to wait another 6-9 months until the end of May 2023 for the new one to arrive. 🙁

Fill the Canning Cupboard DONE

I still have a few more {seasonal} things to can and I’ll do that once I have a working sink.

But for now, it’s been fun pulling jars of jam from the pantry every couple of days or so to spread on our morning toast, or to mix in with oatmeal. 

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 may have to reach this goal in 2023. With everything that’s been going on this year, I haven’t been able to make it a priority and with it getting so close to the end of the year, I’m not sure how much of a dent I’d make. We’ll see.

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables.

Doing great with this goal. 🙂

Keep The Crafts… In The Craft Room.

I managed to get everything out of the dining room…now I’m just getting those last few things out of the family room and then our house will be put back together. 

Home renovations are hard. I don’t know what the best part is, having a clean house again, or a new kitchen.

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

Finally I am putting cut out quilt squares at the top of my list for next weeks tasks. 

1 Craft / Blog Free Day a Week {I’ve had 42 craft/blog free days this year so far.}

Misty fall mornings are the best. 

Be More Intentional With My Time

This past week Lucy and I spotted about 30 wild turkeys in the backyard… and boy are they getting awfully plump.

Keep My Husband Busy 

It was another busy week for the HH. Finding  plumber, yard work, putting together furniture and cutting two trim pieces for the kitchen. Busy busy!

Next on his list is getting the boat out of the water and the floating dock up.
