Building Rome is a weekly mini-challenge hosted by Bradley Corbett over at Green Embers. The goal is to come up with some small, achievable goals for the week and work toward them. I’d like to thank Sheena for the inspiration.
How to participate: Make a post with your goals for the week and how well you did with the previous weeks goals!

Okie dokie. Tomorrow Reiner leaves for a couple of weeks up north at the mine site. This is OK. This, in some ways, is terrific. I like my quiet time. Just ask Karen who, over the weekend, enjoyed 36+ hours of home alone. She loved it. She even turned down invitations so that she could savour the time.
I get it. I welcome the release that comes from letting go the need to consider another’s preferences, needs, choices. Love ‘em to pieces, but it’s freeing to open windows when I want to, to have full control over the thermostat, to have counter tops empty of tools and newspapers. Small potatoes. But my potatoes.
Speaking of spuds… the first thing that ran through my mind was, “Oh goodie, I can eat out, I can buy store bough pizza, I can eat what and when I like…”
Which flies directly in the face of my weight loss mission. You know what they say about “too much of a good thing.”
Another area in my life that could use some fine tuning is how I spend my time. I submitted the final project for AutoCAD on Friday. (Yay! I got an A+) Now my summer is wide open, and for me, that can be bad news. If I don’t have a “to do” list, I will allow the piddling little tasks to go unattended. Not a huge deal in terms of inconvenience. All of these chores or projects have flexible expiry dates. But if I don’t engage myself in an activity, I literally become sleepy and I end up napping.
OK, enough preamble
My list of goals for this week:
- Transplant the cactus babies.
- Walk every day.
- Organize/clean/vacuum/defuzz my office space.
- Eat home-made food. Eat out no more than twice.
- Wash the windows in the kitchen.
- Blog every day.
- Weed the border along the south side of the yard.
- Photograph mineral specimens.
- Take care of the tuition for college.
- Clean up the attic.
All perfectly manageable. Let’s see how this works!
