Starting the week off beautifully {goals/menu}

Monday tag

It is no secret that I love to have goals for directing my days.  These past few weeks of busy life goings-on have left me little time to think over goals.  Ask any of my friends who have been around me the last week and they will tell you that I have been quite scatter-brained.  I do believe there is a direct correlation between the no thought-out goals and the scatter-brainedness. 

This week, I want to write some goals for the week so that I won’t feel like I’m flying by the seat of my pants everyday.  I need some direction and focus.  To me that makes for a beautiful week.

Normally I write monthly goals.  Since the month is almost half-way over, I’m going to just go with weekly goals.  By the way, I am totally borrowing this idea from Mandy over at Biblical Homemaking.  I love the way she writes weekly goals and I love her goal headings so I’m going to copy-cat her idea.  She has a great blog so be sure to pay her a visit!

Goals for the week of April 16

Do: 

  • drink 90 ounces of water a day {and only one soda a day – getting there…}
  • walk 3X
  • weight training 2X
  • send out birthday invitations for Abby’s party
  • make to-do and need to buy lists for party
  • rearrange toy/shoe areas
  • paint mantel/doors/trim in living room & dining room
  • declutter linen closet
  • clean out pan areas in kitchen

Read:

Learn:

  • Memorize Psalm 139: 1 – 3

Be:

  • Sharing with others through hospitality – planning/preparing for a birthday party

Showing hospitality (cooking for others, opening our home, etc) is pretty hard for me to do.  I feel so inadequate in this area and always worry about what I have to give not being enough.  This month I am getting to practice showing hospitality.  I’ve all ready hosted Bunco for my friends (all though I did it at a friend’s house) by fixing the food, buying gifts, and organizing the game.  Later this month, I am hosting a birthday party in our home.  There have been other instances where we’ve been called out of our comfort zones to minister to others through hospitality this month also.  It seems to be getting easier the more I do it.  And the reward from serving and sharing with others, even if it is by simple means, is wonderfully fulfilling.

 

Menu Plan ~

  • Chicken tostadas, salad, corn & pinto beans
  • Slow cooker pork chops, rice, veggies
  • Chicken fajitas with veggies, refried beans, fruit salsa
  • Teriyaki chicken, rice, stir-fried snow peas and swiss chard
  • Eat out night {busy night}

 

I hope you have a beautiful week!

  2. Hi Janice, Thanks for leaving a comment. The list really helps me to focus too. I just have to keep it from stressing me out if life is throwing me some curveballs and I'm not able to accomplish all that I'd like. :) Happy spring to you also!
