Monthly Review of Goals from June

GoalsJune was a tough month for me. We went on a camping trip where I had no internet for several days and that throws me off. Then we went to FL to visit my parents and did an 8 day cruise. I don’t feel I was very consistent this month. My close friend and neighbor also passed away on our anniversary so I just felt too sad to get all my walking done. All of my goals can be found here.

Yearly goals:
  1. Try at least 12 new recipes (one per month).
    1. January – Quinoa Meatballs
    2. February – Mushroom Lasagna
    3. March – Chicken Quesadilla
    4. April – Grilled Asian Chicken
    5. May – Simple Green Smoothie
    6. June - Barbecue Ribs with my father’s secret barbecue sauce. This is the first time I’ve made ribs.
  2. Reach my target weight by the end of the year. – My weight stayed the same this month
  3. Knit a Fair Isle vest. (not started yet)
  4. Learn to chain ply some handspun yarn. (started by not finished)
  5. Dye yarn and fiber. (not started yet)
  6. Spin my camel, yak, and cashmere fiber. Amended to add: or try different techniques
    1. January - spun camel/merino/silk blend fiber in
    2. March – tried drafting back when spinning instead of my usual short forward draft. This made my yarn turn out much loftier.
