October Goals

It is goal time again already! To recap on last months goals...

*I brought the food budget from $175 to $133! Huge step but I will still work on tweeking it.
*I have thought of a couple of handmade gifts that I can make this year that are brand new and will most likely end up in my shop as well.
*I have been building up the listings in my shop and it has resulted in sales, YAY! I started the holiday bootcamp and even got in a new item, the super hero roll!

So now it is time to come up with my goals for October. It is a big month! Starting on October 1st, I will be a stay at home mom. That is a huge goal that is finally being accomplished. So here are the goals for the month...

* Work on a new daily routine that works with all of our new schedules. The new routine will include a sleep schedule, now that we can have one, and time for exercise and devotions.

*Have more quality family time. With our crazy combination of schedules over and more sleep to be had, we don't need to plop in front of the TV at the end of the day because we are too tired to do anything else. I am going to be coming up with a list of activity ideas so that when we say "what should we do tonight" there will be somewhere to go for ideas. I will make sure to share my list on here too so we can all have new ideas.

*Beside working hard on the Etsy holiday bootcamp, I want to get to 100 listings this month and then maintain that number. I have had a hard time growing my stock this month since my listings were being purchased as fast as I was listing them. So I want to get it up and keep it at that amount, minimum, for the whole holiday season.

So those are my 3 main focuses for the month plus my monthly planner pages. What are your plans for the month?

I like this idea of monthly goals!

I think I will work on cutting down our grocery budget too! And possibly start work on Holiday projects!!!

Just got my check for $500.

Many times people don't believe me when I tell them about how much money you can get by taking paid surveys from home...

So I took a video of myself getting paid over $500 for doing paid surveys.

Learning the Uke

The Cat Returns is one of my favorite animated films. The end song, Kaze Ni Naru, is one of my favorite parts and gave me the longing to play the ukulele. I found just the uke for me here in Montreal. It is part musical instrument and part souvenir of Quebec. I am not terribly good at it yet, but I am starting to get this song down. Once I have it figured out, I will either attempt to learn the words so I can sing along, or move on to another great song. In the meantime, here is a great cover of the song by someone who has been playing a lot longer than I have.

Cats in Paris: a Book Review

In Montreal adult coloring books are everywhere. When we came back to the states a couple of months ago I found they were popular here too. I really enjoy them and am very particular about what I pick. I like a lot of fine details mixed with whimsy.

Cats in Paris by Won-Sun Jang is simply beautiful. It begins with a sort of tour of Paris, with cats of course. There is a bit of narrative in this portion as well. The art is beautiful but not quite the page covering design work I personally love. The rest of the book makes up for it though. There are patterns and intri'cat' designs. The artwork throughout is beautifully done and a joy to fill in. I am so happy to be able to while away my quiet moments with this book.

Have you seen this video by Louie Giglio yet? It is really amazing to see how the universe proclaims God's glory. Take some time to watch it. God really is indescribable.
