Weekly Wishes // 99

Happy 99th week of my wishes, folks! I’ve been doing this weekly wishes thing for quite a while, apparently. It’s a lovely time.

I think short term goal setting is a really fun way to check off more menial tasks & feel accomplished, and setting intentions for the week is a great way to keep myself accomplishing what’s important to spend my time on.

Last week’s goals…

1. Have another successful wedding shoot. I did, despite rain. Just gotta get all the images edited.

2. Enjoy a night or two off. I really didn’t. I’m so swamped for the next two weeks. But then my photography and farming season is more or less over so I’ll be in hibernation mode for a few months. Only one job, plus school. I can handle that!

3. Go outside and enjoy. I haven’t been hiking in at least a month. I want to get to the forest asap!

This week’s goals…..

1. Have yet another successful wedding shoot. This coming Saturday is my last wedding shoot of the year. I’m hoping this one ends the season beautifully. I’ll be relieved to lighten my work load soon, too.

2. Have a great visit with my dear friend Carolyn. The wedding I work at this weekend is out of town, but in a town I used to live in, where one of my best friends still resides, so after work, I’m going to stay there so we can catch up and drink tea. And I’m thrilled.

3. Get to the woods. I need the trees.

Happy 98th week of my wishes, folks! I’ve been doing this weekly wishes thing for quite a while, apparently. It’s a lovely time.

Last week’s goals…

1. Have a successful wedding shoot. I suuuuuuure did.

2. Get some work done on winterizing the gardens. We got quite a bit done.

3. Do a little homework. I didn’t at all.

This week’s goals…..

1. Have another successful wedding shoot. I have weddings to photograph the next two weekends, then I’m done for the season. They’re fun, fulfilling, but so exhausting. It’s hard to be charming all day.

2. Enjoy a night or two off. I’ve been so busy lately, I need a night to relax.

3. Go outside and enjoy. I need to get these bones out of doors!

2. Spend some time outdoors. I suuuuure did. See above.

3. Get caught up on housework. I did. It was an amazing weekend.

This week’s goals…..

1. Have a successful wedding shoot. I shoot a wedding this Saturday (which is why I have no time to blog, I work, I take pictures, I edit, I garden, I sleep). And I’m hoping the weather cooperates.

2. Get some work done on winterizing the gardens. Itsss that tiiiime.

3. Do a little homework. I’ve been neglecting school because I’ve been mega swamped. I’d like to at least spend an hour on my school work this week.

This week’s goals…..

1. Enjoy a weekend off. I have the weekend off from most of my work/responsibilities, and I’m pretty darn excited about that. I have a little bit of photo editing and one meeting. That’s it! Hiking plans, and potentially even a nap planned.

3. Get caught up on housework. I’ve been a liiiiittle busy. Things are looking kinda rough around here.

3. Make and can salsa. I didn’t.. I will someday soonish.

This week’s goals…..

3. Make and can salsa. I brought home a car load of tomatoes from the farm today, I so need to get them preserved. And I already have 28 quarts of tomatoes canned for the year. Salsa time.
