This Week's To-Do List: 8/14/22

I spent almost every morning this week working outside in the early hours making sure to be back inside by midmorning.  My routine worked beautifully, and I was able to get several things done outside before the heat and humidity became dangerous each day.

Here's how I did on my 't0-do' list last week:

Bible:  continue reading in the Psalms, continue working on my new memory verse Isaiah 41:13 and finish a post on how I use a faith planner (which will be posted over on From This Heart Of Mine.Done!  Here's the link to my Faith Planning post.

My Fitness Journey: Lose 1 pound; Walk 60,000 steps.  I lost the one pound I wanted to lose!  Staying in maintaince takes just as much effort as losing the weight did.  It's something I have to work at every single day meaning that I have to stay involved in lifestyle changes that help me maintain my weight loss.   I reached my goal of 60,000 steps too:  total steps ... 63,500!

Plant cabbage, broccoli and collards.  Done! I also got some beets and carrots planted as well.  You can read about it HERE.

Work on preserving onions (I'd like to caramelize some and then dehydrate them; the flavor is supposed to be heightened!)  Didn't get done!

Dehydrate and powder tomatoes.  Didn't get done!

Declutter 10 items each day for at least 5 days.  Partially Done!  I worked on decluttering 3 days!

Finish reading STEP Into It by Anita Morris.  Done!

That's it for this week.  I hope you've had a productive week as well and were able to mark several things off your 'to-do' list.

I'll be taking the rest of the month off from blogging while enjoying a little break from the online world.  I'll meet you back here in September, Lord willing!

A Working Pantry

My second blog:  From This Heart of Mine 

She looketh well to the ways of her household … Proverbs 31:27 

A Working Pantry is a way of life, a lifestyle if you will!

My pantry is intentional, purposeful, simple, practical, frugal and what works for my family.  It’s the food items and household supplies that keep my household running smoothly ready and available when they are needed.  It’s my contribution to our family’s economy and my work-from-home ‘job.'

  1. Enjoy the time off. I'm sure that you'll be working all along, just as I've done, but it does help to step back and get the mental rest.

    1. Terri, I'm going to be insanely busy for the rest of the month and I've come to realize as I get older that when my schedule is this busy, I need to step back and prioritize things. I love blogging, but for me blogging is a hobby and something I do because I enjoy it. That means when life gets hectic that I need to pause blogging until the hectic season is over. I'll be back in September most likely the better for the break!

  2. Enjoy your time off!

    We finished our list last week and are moving on to this week.

    The house was cleaned as is our every week Monday today.
    Small group here
    Keep a watch for anything we can preserve and get it done
    Sell my small pressure canner since we bought a second smart canner. Sold one of the regular canners over the weekend. Selling the other will almost cover the new one.
    Youngest son and family here to visit and for lunch on Saturday so get ready. SO excited!
    Aldi run since we are out of produce and milk.
    Groceries if we see any deals.

    1. Lana, doesn't it feel good to tick things off our 'to-do' lists!!! Have a great week!

  3. Enjoy your "vacation" from the online world!
