happiness project: cooking + misc (apr)

Thrive!, Project 43 and the monthly projects in my Happiness Project … so many projects! In reality, they are all facets of the same project, guiding me to finish or give up old projects and move forward on the ones that are most important to me.

March’s main theme was House. As with past months, I’ve made a good start on the tasks I set out and have broken the remaining bits down nicely to complete over the next year.

April’s main theme is “Cooking”. A bit humorous since I’ll be traveling for about half the month and most definitely not doing much in the way of cooking, between not being home and being busy with planning, packing and unpacking when I am home! Over the next year, I have ideas about clearing out the cookbooks and recipe folders, doing more shopping at the farmers’ market, getting back into doing some juicing and smoothie making this summer, acquiring new pots and pans and knives, learning to make yogurt, doing more menu planning and trying to learn some more about cooking “basics”.

In addition, my plans for the month include small items from other month’s topics, such as continuing with organizing my health records as well as the girls’, getting a better will written, organizing my paper files, organizing one bank account, recording serial numbers and photos of our various possessions, working through my “7 Habits” workbook, transferring accounts related to kplfans/uuhomeschool/plainhelps, cleaning up old posts on the GBK blog (some photos are still stored in Blogger), walking 10K steps EVERY DAY, and volunteering at the Red Cross office.

Many of these small items are the same as last month, but I have moved forward on all of them, and I think a few more of might finally be completed this month.

As usual, whatever doesn’t get done gets cycled back into the plan at a later date. I’ve crossed off a number of ongoing projects in the past month, and I look forward to getting more things organized and done as well as progressing in the longer-term projects. Yet again I wish I had taken more photos!
