For those tuning into this round my master goals list is here. The list of everyone participating in this round is here.
Hello everyone, what are you doing to adapt to the many life changes that have been affecting us lately?
My goals are similar to last rounds with a couple canceled due to lack of interest, and others were canceled due to lack of ability to do them with the current circumstance. I decided to limit my predictions of what monthly goals 'should' be done this quarter since there's new life changing information every week, if not every day. I'm keeping it loose and giving myself as much flexibility as I can, while still getting things done!
Over the break I played a lot of Animal Crossing and watched Tiger King with the SO. Both were fun in completely different ways. I also made major progress already on the weeding and other hometending fronts that I don't normally list here. (Such as my yearly washing of the windows half of which are already done for the year months earlier than usual.)
AFTER ACTION REVIEW
You'll notice that exercise is all green. I lowered my goal for quarantine to 4k a day which is the same as one long dog walk. I was trying for two walks a day, but going out an extra time per day was stressing me out, which is exactly what I don't need right now. So I listened to myself and changed it. I think getting out of the house and getting some exercise is important for both me and the puppers so I have been making it more of a priority than I sometimes do.
Weeding and outlining are my monthly goals. I decided that I would pace them out by making them daily goals. For the weeding I'm being flexible, what gets done depends on the weather or what makes sense for me to do next. I took the chainsaw to some bushes yesterday until the chain became unseated. Tomorrow will be rain, so my 'weeding' might be fixing the chainsaw instead. That's ok, it's progress on that front which is the point!
Posting FB posts is a lot easier and faster now that I have a backlog of about 100 pictures ready to post. I've considered posting/scheduling more of them, but I don't want to extend the goalpost just because I found a better way to do something. Particularly when it's not something I enjoy doing.
Lastly I had put the CSA on here as a longer term goal that I've been considering for a while. But I looked in our freezer this weekend and there's finally enough room (I haven't been grocery shopping in over a month now) so I made the decision and put in an order for a local farm that has completely grass fed everything, and it's delivered! For now it's a one time order, but if we like what we get then do a monthly subscription. Veggie wise I know a local farm that's doing preorder with pickup close by (ok the farm is also close by, I could probably go straight there!) so I'm going to do that. We aren't the best at finding new recipes for untried veg, so going with mostly stuff we know and trying one new item a week is best, and less wasteful, for us.
First is finishing any of the books that I've been in the middle of for a while now. I've been enjoying all of them but have been playing more Animal Crossing or simply don't want to sit more when I'm doing so much sitting while working from home.
Second is finishing editing a piece of flash fiction and send it out. It's due Friday and I already have a draft written. Considering how short the piece is this should be doable.
Third is working on the basement projects. I have two what I would consider full projects brought upstairs to the crafting table to work on for now. I also have two half projects which are things that are either almost done, or don't have an item when completed. (For example I found a bag of old paperwork that needs to get gone through in the basement. That's not a crafting project, but it's something that should get done.)
Lastly, I have two blog posts that I have outlined in my head but haven't written out yet which I'd like to work on soon. They've been in my queue for months now and they need to go!
