My Big List of Goals I’m Going to Accomplish in 2022 Week 14 of 52

Prep table by deVOL Kitchens

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

Remodel The Kitchen

While the HH is working on sanding the floors in the kitchen, I’ve been online searching for prep table ideas and floating shelves. 

Sell Enough Rugs to Buy an AGA Stove {$11,442.90 of $22,000 earned so far}

The AGA has been ordered {we put 1/2 down when we placed the order} and it should be here later this summer. So in a nutshell… I better get hooking so I can come up with the rest of the funds to pay for the thing. 🙂

Fill the Canning Cupboard 

Fresh asparagus is on sale this week! Yee-Haw. I think I might pickle some. 

Jams I’ve made to fill my canning cupboard so far: Ginger Pear Jam and Spiced Christmas Jam

Earn Enough Money Selling {?????} To Pay For Our 2022 Grocery Tab By The End Of The Year.

I totally forgot to list my driftwood on Etsy last week and now with the house a total mess, I think I’ll just have to wait until things calm down again because I don’t even know where it is now. 

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables.

Ketchup totally counts, right? 

Keep The Crafts… In The Craft Room.

Well, the crafts may be out of the dining room, but I barely have enough room to walk in there now because everything that was in the kitchen/dining area is now strewn between the family room and my crafting area. 

But those floors…. Holy cannolis people, they’re looking good.

Tap Our 2 Maple Trees and Make Maple Syrup

The well has run dry. 🙁 Now we just have to wait for The Girl to come for a visit so we can boil down the sap. 

Make a Quilt Top

I made absoultly zero progress on my quilt top this past week. 

Be More Intentional With My Time

There is a person on Etsy selling pinecone wreaths for $200. 

Note to self: Start picking up the pinecones in our backyard. 

1 Craft / Blog Free Day So far I’m 9 for 13 this year. 

I have to keep crafting in order to stay sane right now. If I didn’t, I think I would lose my mind.

Lucy and I have been spending most of our days in the craft room lately and although I’m getting a lot done, I’m glad the temps will be warmer next week so we can play outside instead. 

Keep My Husband Busy 

Slowly but surely, the HH is getting there. He ordered the sealer for the floor {it should arrive tomorrow} and thinks he’ll be ready to lay it down early next week.

Once that dries, we’ll move all our stuff over to the dining room/kitchen side of the house and then he’ll start the process all over again on the other side of the house. Fun times! 🙂

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
  • Build a new set of stairs down to the water. 
  • Fill the field {with soil} 
  • Remodel 1 bathroom
  • Replace fireplace tile
  • Build window boxes for the front of the house
  • Build an arbor for the wisteria
  • Order 4 cords of firewood by the end of May and stack them in an artful way {like they did in the book Norwegian Wood}.
  • Sand the floors in the entire house {new addition}
  • Install new garage door openers {new addition}
  • Build a wood shed {new addition}

My current project is trying to clean all the PINE FLOOR DUST out of my vacuum.

Apparently the HH thought it would be a good idea to use our household vacuum to suck up all the tiny bits of dust he couldn’t get with his old shop vac. 

And then he ended up getting a new one after he ruined mine.

My House Projects For This Year {so far}

  • 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

Try 24 New Recipes {8 down, 16 to go}

I didn’t make any new recipes this past week.  Gee. I wonder why. 

So far this year  I have shared the following recipes:

Listen to 12 Audiobooks

I’m still on the wait list for Taste by Stanley Tucci and The Boys by Ron and Clint Howard.

Audiobooks I’ve listened to this year:  

Get a Fishing License and Catch a Fish

The HH is in charge of procuring all the fishing gear. So you know, there’s lot’s of research to be done first. 😉

I missed the pussy willow harvest for the second year in a row. I went out yesterday to clip some branches and they were about a day or two past their prime. 🙁 

Also, there is still no sign of the 100+ daffodils I planted in front of the barn. I find it hard to believe that they were all gobbled up by critters and am now beginning to think that maybe I planted them too deep. 

My List of Garden Projects For This Year I want to Accomplish

  • Map out this year’s garden by April 1st
  • Plant apple or pear trees
  • Plant raspberry and blueberry bushes – raspberry canes have been ordered
  • Plant asparagus and rhubarb – ordered
  • Grow 500 pounds of food
  • Expand the lasagna garden
  • Finish clearing the front of the property
  • Get some garden pots for the front an back patio/porches

Create 12 New Rug Hooking Patterns and/or Kits Done! {14 out of 12 finished so far}

I added 4 new designs to my rug hooking kits/pattern collection last week. 🙂 

Have All My 2022 Ornaments Finished by April 1st. Done!

I finished my last batch of garden markers and ornaments around mid week and once they sell out, I won’t be making anymore again until next winter. Yee-Haw!

52 Walks {We’ve gone on 5 of 52 so far}

When I wrote down this goal, the idea was that we’d be going on one special walk a week. But it was so cold this winter, and now with refinishing the floors being the top priority, getting out and going for a nice walk has sort of been put on the back burner for right now. 

Which is sort of a bummer because Lucy loves to go exploring. 

Visit 12 Towns in Maine That I Haven’t Been to Before

So far we have visited the town of Hope, Maine and checked out the General Store there. 

How about YOU? How did you do with working towards your goals for 2022?
