2020 Goals Review for September

I really worked hard on my goals during September. We ate a lot of salads and I added interval jogging into my exercise workout. It was a really nice month! I enjoyed my birthday this year too!

1. Lose 5 lbs. Hopefully this year I will be able to meet this goal. – This month I reached my goal but I won’t count it complete until the end of the year. I want to make sure that I keep it off!

2. Crafts – Completed
a. Knit 12 squares on my national park blanket. I have a total of 35 completed now. (There are 60                squares in the pattern, and this is year 3 of the project.)
i. Completed 13 squares this year
b. Charity – I want to crochet at least 3 prayer shawls and make 10 more NICU hats.
i. January – prayer shawl completed
ii. February – prayer shawl completed
iii. June – prayer shawl complete 
iv. July – 5 NICU hats. 
v. September - 5 NICU hats 
c. Knit a sweater. – Completed the Ground Pepper Sweater
d. Knit a ZigZag scarf – Completed
e. Repair the neckline on the Henley sweater I made a few years ago. – I looked at the sweater and realized that to fix the neckline, I would have to rip out both button bands and at this time, I’m not sure I want to do all that work so this goal probably won’t happen. I should receive partial credit for at least looking at it and considering it.

3. Read 12 nonfiction books that are related to nature. – Completed
a. The Eighty Dollar Champion: Snowman, The Horse That Inspired A Nation by Elizabeth Letts
b. A Lion Called Christian: The True Story of the Remarkable Bond between Two Friends and a Lion by Anthony Bourke and John Rendall
c. The Adventures of Henry Thoreau: A Young Man's Unlikely Path to Walden Pond by Michael Sims d. The Story of My Boyhood and Youth by John Muir
