Living and Learning in October 09

3 Oct

I have often made lists similar to this on scratch paper, but today I was inspired by this blog. I love the idea of having a list of things I’m currently doing and a list of goals for the month.  I accomplish so many more tasks with the help of lists and having it posted on a blog in some ways holds me accountable!

Special Days and Events:

  • October:  Pastor Appreciation Month and  Breast Cancer Awareness Month
  • October 4 – Gage’s brother’s 17th Birthday
  • October 8-10th – Garage Sale
  • October 9 – Autumn Festival (Arts & Crafts Show)
  • October 12 – Zoe turns 19 months old
  • October 14 – My sister’s 19th Birthday
  • October 16-18 –  Traveling to Minnesota for the Women of Faith Conference with Anna.
  • October 22 – Eat a Pretzel Day!  Yum 🙂
  • October 29 – Our 5th Dating/Courting Anniversary
  • October 30 – Drive to Tulsa, OK
  • October 31 – Halloween.  Zoe is Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz this year!  Grandma Jenny is making her costume.

Homemaking  Goals:

  • Establish some regular routines with Zoe (night time routine, day time routine, etc)
  • Establish a new Meal Planning system.
  • Put away summer clothes.  Get out, wash, and organize warm clothing.
  • Go through the house and find a TON of stuff to sell at the Garage sale! 😉
  • Attempt to make a soup from scratch.  I’ve never done this before.
  • Complete my “framed photo collage” on the wall in the living room.  It looks silly right now because it’s missing a framed photo.


  • Read Proverbs and answer the questions in the study book for church.
  • Continue to read “Lies Women Believe” by Nancy Leigh Demoss
  • Things to try: Oil Cleansing (for face)
  • Study:  Godly Wisdom
  • Do research on the following topics:  Homemade and Natural Soaps,  Charlotte Mason, Toddler Education, Breast Cancer


  • Teach Zoe how to draw with crayons on paper, rather than eating them.
  • Begin teaching Zoe about the “Potty”
  • A visit to the Pumpkin Patch.
  • A trip to the Library.
  • A trip to the Zoo (weather permitting)
  • Bake cookies with Zoe’s “help”.
  • Continue to work on sharing.
