Here we are ready to start week three of our simple living this week already! I like this picture because it makes me think of us chatting while we take a brief break or run into each other while out taking care of something.
If you haven’t participated yet, this is really easy. First, I hope you have A Quiet Simple Life Planner and Guidebook. There are lots of ideas there. It explains quite a bit about my philosophy of creating a cozy home of peace, understanding, and joy. Each Monday we choose three homemaking goals for the week beyond our regular responsibilities. We share them and come back to share how we did on the Friday Follow-up post. They can be tiny goals or big goals. We’re all in different places with our homes and responsibilities so there is no right or wrong way to do this. The only objective is to help us finish a few things each week and celebrate with each other.
You can also check out the Prudent & Prepared Series for other ideas.
So my goals this week include:
Goal 1 – Select an updated life insurance policy. We’ve had life insurance for a long time, but we need to update our policies. We have put this off for months and months. This week we get it done.
Goal 2 – Find a mixer cover for my Kitchen Aid mixer. I either need to find an inexpensive one to buy on someplace like Etsy or find a super easy pattern I could try to sew myself at some point (not this week). My sewing skills are pretty basic, but I do have some pretty fabric that might work well so I’m kind of interested in finding a free pattern online.
Goal 3 – Spend one hour working through piles of recipes, printed ideas, etc. and begin organizing them. My recipe collection is really not up-to-date since my EoE completely changed our cooking and eating patterns. So I need to pitch a lot of things I printed off years ago that I will never try. Hopefully in the process I’ll find a few things David and Caroline might enjoy.
So those are my goals. I have a full week planned with other things so I tried to choose goals that were on the easier end of the spectrum.
What do you hope to accomplish this week by Friday? Please share in the comments!
