Revisiting April 2014 Goals

The end of another month has come...where is 2014 going?  I feel like this is the first time ever where I'm really wondering where time goes.  I'm really keeping track of time with these Four Simple Goals posts - is that a good or a bad thing?  This month I didn't really accomplish too much, honestly, when it comes to these goals.  But lets check out how I did on April's Four Simple Goals:

Plan for our garden in the Spring
I really don't know if a veggie garden is in the stars for us...I feel like it might be too much work that we don't want to do (read I don't want to do).  But I don know that I am going to do a tiered pot system on the deck off the kitchen for herbs & as a pretty display in our front garden.  Planting in the ground just didn't work for me last year.  The only in ground planting I want to do is something that spills over the front of the flower bed in the front & putting another hosta in the empty space in the flower bed.  So yeah...I guess I did plan.  I finally made up my mind.

Organize Closets/Cabinets
I guess the biggest closet in the house is the garage!  We finally cleaned out all the vintage stock we had since we're not doing that any more.  We're going to list it in a big lot on Craigslist & be done.  Sometimes you have to just move on - I know it might seem fleeting but you only live once & I think you should try as many things as you can, you know?  Anyway - now we have room for the camping stuff and perhaps I'll finally get around to setting up the kiln.

Collaborate on the blog with others
This is actually something I decided I don't want to do.  While I'd love to .... I also don't want to put unneeded pressure on myself.  My blog is my blog.  That sounds a bit harsh but I've found the more pressure I put on myself to do something to please others - like having to do my part a blog collaboration, etc - makes me not want to do it.  I never want to feel pressured to post and sometimes when I try to do something following a long with others - even if it's just a link party - I start feeling like I'm not doing what I want to do.  Not that blog collaborations are full of pressure but sometimes I just feel pressured.  I don't know how to explain it....but for now I want to keep this a place for me to share me.  Maybe I'm insane but I hope you get what I'm trying to say!

Work with Zach on a regular post on the blog
This is something we've talked about a little but haven't settled on.  I'd like to do more cooking together - in fact we made shish kabobs the other day & I didn't take a single picture!  But then again I want to live my life too....I dunno I feel like I'm very torn with blogging right now! gah!!!!

So I guess I completed a few things this month.  These goal posts really keep me accountable & I can't believe I've kept up with the posts so far.  Super surprising since I tend to let things like that slip!

What did you accomplish this month?  Anything worth bragging about?  Let me know!

xoxo, Moe

  1. I know what you mean about working with other bloggers, I'd love to but I don't have the time or I never know if they'd fit in with my blog. Ah well. I love blogging for myself and it's great that I have so many regular readers that enjoy what I come up with - share it, and comment. That's the important thing to me!
