Review of Yearly Goals – February 2019

My yearly goals are:

1.     Lose 10 lbs. This seems to be my continuing goal each year and hopefully, this is the year that I reach it.
2.     Knit 12 squares on my national park blanket. (There are 60 squares in the pattern, and this is year 2 of the project.)
3.     Knit a sweater.  - complete
4.     Finish my Squishy Blanket (pattern: Bits and Bobs by Kay Jones).
5.     Learn how to use my sewing machine. - complete
6.     2019 Photo A Day Project – I participate in this every other year and I feel it helps me learn how to take better photos.
7.     Publish a book - This is a big one for me and I won’t believe it until the project is complete and I have a hard copy of the book in hand.
8.     Read 12 nonfiction books that are biographies or autobiographies.  If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave it in the comments.

Results: I’ve decided to color code my results. Red = bad, Green = Work in Progress, Strike through = completed.

1.     I’ve lost 2 lbs. since January 1.
2.     I knit 2 of my 12 squares so far.  
3.     I finished my sweater on 2/20/19
4.     I worked on my squishy blanket for a few days so I could have progress to show here.
5.     I spent 2 days working on my sewing machine. My friends came over to help me make the skirt. Then I had so much material left over that I made a top all by myself!
6.     I’m still enjoying the photo a day project!
7.     Hopefully, my book will come out this month. I know some people have preordered it because it is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble now.  
8.     I’ve read 5 biographies:
a.     The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America's Shining Women by Kate Moore
b.     High Calling: The Courageous Life and Faith of Space Shuttle Columbia Commander Rick Husband by Evelyn Husband.
c.     Miracles from Heaven by Christy Wilson Beam
d.     Harry: A Biography of a Prince by Angela Levin
e.     Robin by Dave Itzkoff
