My Big List of Goals I’m Going to Accomplish in 2022 Week 30 of 52

Posted by admin on

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

Remodel The Kitchen 

The new faucet arrived in record time and the electrician made it out last week as well. He took a look at everything that needed to be done and said he’d be out in about 2 weeks to get it all done. 

Once he’s done with his part we’ll be able to finish the kitchen demo, patch up the walls and paint. Then, sometime in September the cabinet guys will install their bit. Exciting!

Sell Enough Rugs to Buy an AGA Stove DONE!!!

Well I did it!!! I finally 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. 

Now I’ve shifted to saving up for a “research trip” to England to find the perfect scone {so I can duplicate it in my new oven}. Because seriously, life would be boring without goals.

Fill the Canning Cupboard 

I made a batch of peach jam this week to add to the canning cupboard.  I think I have enough jam now to get us through the winter. 🙂 

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’ve decided to wait until fall to list my beach finds. 

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables.

This past week is was super easy to fill our plates with fresh fruits and vegetables thanks to our garden and The Duck Lady’s cast offs. 


Keep The Crafts… In The Craft Room.

It wasn’t a good week for keeping the crafts out of the dining room. I dyed a bunch of wool {that still needs to be stacked and folded} and now have some mini ornaments on the table waiting to be painted. 🙂 

Why is it that I always seem to gravitate to working at the kitchen table? Maybe because it’s in a spot where I can keep an eye on everything? I don’t know.

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

No progress on the quilt.  I still need to finish counting squares {and cutting out white ones}.

Be More Intentional With My Time

Met up with our old neighbors for brunch. It was nice to catch up. 

1 Craft / Blog Free Day {I’ve had 28 craft/blog free days this year so far.}

Yesterday I got up and headed out early with The Duck Lady to help Kiln Guy {who’s real occupation is/was a caterer} to help out at an island wedding. It was a long day and I totally fell into bed when I got home last night just before midnight, but it was interesting and a lot of fun too. 

Keep My Husband Busy 

The HH replaced the old can lights in the kitchen with retrofitted LED lights and let’s just say they look a lot better than the old ones. 

And while can lights wouldn’t be my first choice for overhead lighting, it’s what we have and neither of us have any interest in having the ceiling torn up {and patched and painted} to have them replaced throughout the house. 

At least with the new, updated lights, we aren’t looking at giant holes in the ceiling with an ugly flood light sticking out.

The HH’s Honey Do List {so far} for 2022

  • Take over cooking {I’ll still do the baking and canning}
  • Cut down the cluster of trees in the backyard DONE
  • Build a new set of stairs down to the water. 
  • Fill the field {with soil} DONE
  • Remodel 1 bathroom
  • Replace fireplace tile
  • Build window boxes for the front of the house
  • Build an arbor for the wisteria {We decided to move the wisteria to another location instead}
  • Order 4 cords of firewood by the end of May and stack them DONE
  • Sand the floors in the entire house DONE
  • Install new garage door openers {new addition}

My House Projects For This Year {so far}

Hey! I finally took care of something on my list! I ordered a window covering for the kitchen window. Yee-Haw. Now, if I could just get motivated and get my indoor painting projects done.

Things I need to get done this year:

  • Finish painting the outside of the house
  • Finish painting the inside of the house 
  • Make something to hang above our new console table
  • Make it look like people actually live here HA HA HA
  • New window treatment for the kitchen window {ordered!}

I made bread in the air fryer. It was interesting. 🙂 

So far this year I have shared the following recipes:


Listen to 12 Audiobooks {11/12 so far}

No new books this week.

Audiobooks I’ve listened to this year:  

Get a Fishing License and Catch a Fish

The HH tried out his new pole on the dock, but so far no fish. Maybe I need to take him out on the water and show him how it’s done. 😉 After all, pretty much every summer of my childhood was spent on a boat crabbing, clamming and fishing.

The tomatoes, beans and cucumbers are starting to trickle in so that’s been nice. I was also busy this past week dehydrating kale, cabbage, green onions and celery for winter stews. If you are looking for a new dehydrator, this is the one we have. I love it!

Yesterday I went to a new island I’d never been to before. And it just reinforced the fact that I would LOVE to live on an island some day. 🙂 My poor husband. Ha!
