October goals, let's talk about them 10 days late

I just spent 30 minutes digging around in my garden beds, prepping one for a huge batch of leafy greens, another for onions/scallions/and the like, and the other was just some weeding and thinning of my latest plantings. While up to my wrists in freshly turned soil I realized that I have yet to blog about the goals I established for myself for October.

I was inspired by Kim at The NewlyWoodwards to goal out each month. As soon as I revamped my layout, I posted my October goals in the sidebar on the right. At the end of the month I will tally up how well I did.

So let's review!

Great list. Although, I'm totally freaking out.... Christmas is coming! =)

I just cleaned out my fridge and pantry yesterday. The local high schools are doing a hunger drive and I had to bring a few things to work. So, I brought a bunch of canned goods we don't use. It wasn't a huge purge but it looks better and I feel better about it.
