My Big List of Goals I’m Going to Accomplish in 2022 Week 23 of 52

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

Remodel The Kitchen

Cabinet guy came out this past week and took the final measurements for the kitchen. We decided on the floating shelves we wanted {or rather I wanted… the HH is still a wee bit skeptical about the whole thing}. 

1 long shelf above the stove and 2 on the side of the pantry. AND THAT’S IT!!! {The above photo is from the AGA Instagram page}

I wanted a light and open, clutter free kitchen with a big fat British stove and a large pantry. And so that’s what we’re going with. And I couldn’t be more excited! 

The cabinets likely won’t be installed until September though, but that’s okay. As long as the kitchen is put back together again by the time we get our first snowfall… I’m good with it.


Sell Enough Rugs to Buy an AGA Stove {$16,641.35 of $22,000 earned so far}

I listed some new pieces in my Etsy shop last night and I am happy to report that I am now 76% of the way to my goal!!! 

Fill the Canning Cupboard 

Last week I canned split pea and ham soup. This week I’m going to try another soup recipe. I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙂 

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 think I’ll just have to wait until things calm down before I list my beach finds. 

Eat More Fruits and Vegetables.

Working on it. And also trying to figure out what we are going to do with 68 tomato plants once they start producing. 

Keep The Crafts… In The Craft Room.

I made it 6 1/2 days without a bunch of stuff piled up on the dining room tables. And then I did an Etsy update. 😉 And ate a half a pint of ice cream while I was listing everything.

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

I pulled my quilt squares out this week. And then I put them back on the shelf. 

Be More Intentional With My Time

Not a bad place to sit and watch the sunrise. 

1 Craft / Blog Free Day {I’ve had 20 craft/blog free days this year so far.}

Keep My Husband Busy 

The HH bought himself a super splitting axe so he can get to work as soon as our firewood arrives. He loves the axe and said he wished he would have bought one sooner. 

Firewood guy is really backed up because everyone wants to load up on firewood this year {4 cords of wood cost the same right now as a 6 WEEK supply of heating oil} but we’re hoping we get our delivery of firewood in the next week or two.

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} Almost 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 in an artful way {like they did in the book Norwegian Wood}.
  • Sand the floors in the entire house DONE
  • Install new garage door openers {new addition}
  • Build a wood shed {new addition}

My House Projects For This Year {so far}

All house projects are on hold right now as we finish up the 2nd garden space the HH created last week. I’m hoping that by Monday afternoon we will have moved all the garden soil down to that bed and the HH can till it up so I can get the rest of the squash and beans {and who knows what else} planted. 

Things I need to get done this year:

  • Finish painting the outside of the house
  • Finish painting the inside of the house {working on it}
  • 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 {9 down, 15 to go}

Still no oven… but I share a new recipe this past week.

So far this year I have shared the following recipes:

Listen to 12 Audiobooks {11/12 so far}

No new audiobooks this past week but I am enjoying reading my friend Doreen’s Little Brown Gazette.

I added 5 more “beginner” rug hooking kits to my Etsy shop last night. That makes TWENTY ONE new patterns/kits for this year. Holy cow man… that’s a lot. And I’m not even close to being done. 

I guess it’s true what they say… it doesn’t feel like work if you love what you’re doing. 🙂
