A Few resolutions of my own

My friend over at Maple Hill Farm inspired me to make a list of some of the things I would like to accomplish in the new year. She had some really great ones that I may try to replicate.

One of the things I would like to do ( and at least keep track of) is to "put up" 600 pints of goodies this year. This will include canned, frozen and dried. I've made this cute little ticker, although I'm not sure exactly how to keep up with it, but I'll try.

It's at the bottom of my page also, and should always be there.

A few other things I would like to do this year
- complete 20 scrapbook pages
- Read 10 books
- Make rock candy with the girls
- Go camping at least 5 times this year
-Plant the girls a large wildflower patch for them to make bouquets out of
- plant 2 additional fruit or nut trees
- Earn at least $100 in Amazon codes from Swagbucks and/or Irazoo  - use these for Christmas
-Make fresh, homeade peanut butter with the girls
- Host a giveaway on my blog
- have 50 followers on my blog

I assume I will add more either to this list or throughout the year. I wish you all the greatest year yet!


  1. Love the ticker! Wish I knew how to use stuff like that!

    Congrats on your list. I know you'll enjoy getting there!

  2. I'm hoping to can at least four different things. Haven't decided what, yet. :) You go lady!

  3. I visited California this past year and you guys have a great climate. I have to admit that I am jealous of the avacados. We stayed in a house in San Fran that had a wonderful avacado tree. And the strawberries also while driving south on the coast. You will find some things you really like canned and you will love doing it!
