June turned into a wonderful and very busy month, but how did the goals progress?
17 swims- lots on holiday but only counting them as 1 as it is regular swimming I want to concentrate on. Two visits to the pool in town, so that gives a total of 8. Half way through the year, so on target for this one.
16 hour long walks- 6 this month, giving me a total of 21. Goal Achieved
15 books from the heap by the bed read-One more this month- total is 12
14lbs lost- still going in the right direction
13 cards made- 1 more made, total is 9, more double-sided tape needed and then maybe there will be two more soon.
12 posts about local villages- total unchanged at three
11 days out- tempted to double count something here but I won’t, so leaving this unchanged at 6
10 new things tried- 30 days wild challenge-I really enjoyed taking part in this challenge. I had it all planned out and then we went on holiday to Greece unexpectedly, so I had some days wild there. I wrote a diary every day during the month. Sometimes all I managed was the 15 minutes outside I had promised myself I would do as a minimum. Sometimes it was dodging the showers. I can point to the big things I did like walking through a river gorge waist-high in water which was brilliant, but I think it was the 15 minutes outside and the quiet observations that were the best. Seeing Fred our blackbird with white feathers feeding his fledging on the path by the French windows, or the frogs no bigger than my thumb nail by the pond and in the greenhouse. Being part of the face book group, who knew we had so many bugs in this country, or reading how to tell the difference between healthy and unhealthy hedgehog poo! My sense of well-being has soared. Next year I will be more prepared and do more to help wild life. And who knew taking photos of wild life was so hard. Whilst in the river I had a go at building a cairn.
As I lifted the stones I could not believe tiny fishes no longer than my little finger nail or wider than a hair pin and so transparent, and then a tadpole
Ha! At least you can see him! But in a river, I thought the water had to be still for frogs, not running strongly. Such a lot to see and learn.
I came back from holiday and two days later had a day out at my first ever Family History Fair.
Here being opened by the East Yorkshire Town Crier, from Bridlington I think he said. So that is 7 new things tried.
9 crochet/ knitting projects-achieved a while back
8 craft projects-still not one
7 Sewing projects- still at 5.
6 non fiction books read- 5 still
5 family history questions answered– still 2
4 good sort outs-3 still
3 interesting finds-1
2 picnics- 0, I have eaten outside but not purpose made picnics, buying a cheese pie from a bakers is not what I meant!
1 boat ride-0
0 craft supplies purchased unless to replace used products. We all know that this is an epic FAIL, too much yarn bought.
So some things are well on course and some things have yet to be started. July is going to be all about a certain wedding I think, but there are still 6 months to go. Plenty of time! Hope your goals are progressing well. The main thing is to have FUN!
