Goals for June

This month I’m working on several projects that have been on my to-do lists for months. I have a lot of work to do in the garden, as the weeds have grown quite a bit in the last month while I’ve been recovering from having a baby. I am also behind in planting several things…

It also means a lot of almost every single one of my goals from last month are still items on my to-do list. Knowing my limited mobility, I’m making this month’s goals more in line with what I can do physically….

This Week’s Goals
