Monthly Mantras, Goals & Currently {July} 12

Only two short months ago we launched of the Peaceful Posse monthly link up, Monthly Mantras, Goals & Currently.  For those that missed it, the link will open up on the first Monday of each month and will remain open for 14 days.  So for the month of July, it will open on Monday, July 3rd and close at midnight on Monday, July 17th.  Our next link up will be Monday, August 7th..

It is totally up to you on how you want to layout or structure your posts.  Do whatever works for you, how about that? 🙂

So here goes my update on my June Goals and then we’ll get crackin’ on July’s mantras, goals and currently.

Let’s take a look at what my Goals for the month of June were and their results: 

  1. Read more.  Not gonna lie, I read a BIT more but not much.  I certainly got some reading in while we were camping for the week.  That was so nice and relaxing.
  2. Start planning out more of our dinners so I’m not indecisive in the evenings.  I him and ha in the evenings what to eat for dinner all.the.time., I think maybe because I’m bored.  So I’m planning to meal planning dinners.  I’ve been planning out meals for the week and this has been so much better than trying to wing it and then loathing wanting to cook every single night.
  3. Start cleaning a bit more during the week so I’m not doing so much of it on the weekends.  Fail.  Well, maybe not a total failure but I could have been doing more during the month of June.
  4. Relax and unwind on our camping/paddling trip.  I plan to be unplugged for seven whole days.!!!  It was GLORIOUS and so relaxing!!

Reading… – Fast and Loose by Stuart Woods and Night Watch by Iris and Roy Johansen

Playing… Jeff and I have been playing cards lately.  And of course, I’m still playing Words with Friends.

Watching… House of Cards, Orange in the New Black, Big Brother, Better Call Saul…

Trying… embrace this time of change and looking for the positive.

Cooking… Allllll the food.  We survived off of dehydrated/freeze-dried food on our paddling trip for 8 days and boy was I happy to see some substance once we made it back to the car and the highway.

Eating… Alllllll the things, specifically everything that is NOT dehydrated.  lol

Drinking… Still drinking water like a mad man.

Calling… mom for updates on Charlie and checking in to see how Baxter is, too.

Texting… Always the same handful of people. Jeff, Alexandra, Dina, Regina.

Pinning… cute outfits, inspirational quotes, mantras, ISFJ memes, dog/pet pictures. Always!

Tweeting… I’m kinda bet Twitter…

Going… Nowhere.  We’re back now, having just been on a seven day paddling trip up in Algonquin Park.

Loving… my people.

Hating… when vacations come to an end.

Discovering… new recipes for dinners. <—- this still applies for this month, too.

Thinking… about all of our summer plans and what we’ve got going on each weekend.

Feeling… relaxed, blessed and fortunate..

Hoping (for)… a smooth recovery for Charlie. 

Listening (to)… all of the tunes. Jeff said I was singing and swaying to music like crazy when we went and ate a pita after we got out of the park after our camping trip.

Celebrating… our ninth wedding anniversary on June 28th.

Smelling… grapefruit or anything citrus. <- Still. I recently tried Kiehl’s grapefruit body scrub and I love everything grapefruit.  Mmmm!

Thanking… my mom and everything she does for our family. We are so blessed. <3

Considering… don’t know about this one.

Starting… a trend and completing my monthly mantras and goals every month going forward. <—- this was May’s and June’s goal and lookie here, look at me go, here I am again for month three, July.  I’m doing well thus far. 🙂

Finishing… what I start. Always. 🙂
