Weekly Wishes // 129

Happy 129th 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 a somewhat quiet weekend. I did have a quieter weekend than I had been having of late. And it was real nice..

2. Start and finish creating my nieces bday gift. I somehow pulled it off. Not my best sewing project ever, but it’s done and it fit. It was a Princess Poppy dress.

3. Maybe take a lil time to paint. Ohhhh but I didn’t.

This week’s goals…..

1. Weed the garden. We’ve recently had sun then rain then sun then rain and boy do the weeds love it. I have a bunch of tiny weeds popping up among my tiny carrots and beets and it’s going to be hard to sift through.

2. Learn how to quilt. I have plans to go to my granny’s this Sunday to have her teach me how to quilt!!!

3. Create something new. I am thinking maybe it’s time for some new recipes. Or maybe I should bust out the paints again….

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Last week’s goals…

1. Enjoy a camping trip. I did! There were only five other people in the whole park other than my friends and I, so it was a good way to reset.

2. Weed the garden. I did! I think all of the gardens are in order!

3. Attack my to do list. I got lots done!
This week’s goals…..

1. Have a somewhat quiet weekend. I’ve travelled the last two weekends and am ready for a more relaxing weekend.

This week’s goals…..

Creamy Broccoli Salad

kwp-36

I made this for Easter this year as a dupe for a creamy broccoli salad we made at the co-op I used to work at. The recipe we made there had vegan mayo for the sauce base, but I wanted to attempt a more whole food based version. It turned out great, and my darling cousin just texted to ask for the recipe (Hi Katie!). It’d been in my mental draft folder for the last few weeks, so I figured I’d sit down and type.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chopped broccoli
  • 1/4 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds

Sauce

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked in water for one hour, then drained
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt, more if needed
  • Juice of one half lemon
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • water- add 1 tablespoon at a time until sauce is creamy and pourable

Blend sauce ingredients until creamy. Pour over other ingredients and stir until broccoli is coated and combined well.

Happy 126th 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. Do some homeworkI did some. Never as much as I’d like to, but some.

2. Play outside. I spent almost all of Saturday and Sunday outside. Including a 4.5 hour kayak trip..

3. Make something new. I dreamt up a new painting in my head! That’s progress.

This week’s goals…..

1. Enjoy some weekend traveling. I have two places to travel to this weekend, and I’m excited to go see somewhere new.

2. Keep up with yoga. I’ve been on such a good streak and it feels great, even on days where I don’t realllllly want to get on my mat.

3. Read something. I’ve been doing a terrible job of reading this last year… I’ve almost finished an Eve Ensler book this week though.

Happy Wednesday, friends!

Happy 125th 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. Finish the darn embroidery project I’ve been dragging out for too long. I’m about to. 

2. Get three quarters of the way through the lesson I’m currently on for Herbology school. I forgot how much time I was gonna spend on getting the house ready for visitors, then have an engagement shoot to edit.

3. Host Easter with the family. I did. I even got a cousin to help with planting flowers.

This week’s goals…..

1. Do some homework. I don’t know why it’s such a struggle to do homework for a program I love, but it is. When there are no due dates… It’s hard to stay motivated.

2. Play outside. I wanna hike.

3. Make something new. A new recipe, a new painting, a new project..

Happy Wednesday, friends!

I wouldn’t spend this amount on jewelry because I won’t wear a piece this big every day, and there’s a real good chance I’d lose it. But it’s really beautiful.
