Project 52 - Week 3




Week 3 and so far I'm still on track for all my weekly goals and I accomplished one more monthly goal. Not bad for Week 2!

3. Cook three times per week - 2/52 - Make that 4 times! I made beef bourguignon, hamburger, pesto chicken over spaghetti and chili (which was also a new recipe, but I already did that this month. Darn!)

10. Walk or exercise 3 times per week - 2/52 - This was a real challenge this week due to the 12 inches of snow we got on Wednesday. But, I traded by sneakers for boots and forced myself to go. And would definitely not have done that if I was participating in Project 52!

30. Pay attention to local politics - I read at least one political article every day in the Providence Journal, even though my initial inclination was to skip those articles.

33. Post at least once a week - 2/52 - Yup!

36. Keep fresh flowers in my family room - The flowers I bought the week before are still going strong, but I bought another bouquet anyway. Bonus - flowers in family room AND dining room.

37. Donate to a charity or cause once a month - 1/12- Madeleine attended a Sweet Sixteen birthday party for her friend, Camille. In lieu of gift, Camille asked her friends to donate money to the Lillian Chason Memorial Fund, in honor of a local HS girl who died in 2009 of swine flu. Contributions to the fund will support activities that had great meaning to Lillian, such as community theater, Friends Camp and drama scholarships. How could we say no? This was almost too easy.

You are doing great! My walking goal did have a snow clause, so I'm allowed to forgo it.

Not just your flowers, but you are still going strong! Keep up the good work!

You're doing great. That pesto chicken sounds good! The 12" of snow would have kept me inside! It's great that you are paying attention to politics. The Founders put a lot of faith in us to be responsible and informed citizens. I'm also working on that!

Cooking 3 x a week is totally reasonable. I like that one!

I've been cooking a lot lately. Cold weather seems to warrant it. I've been thinking of driving to a neighborhood to walk. The bike path isn't plowed and I certainly can't walk our road. You're inspiring me.

You're doing great! :-) I love your goals and your determination!

You are on a ROLL, my friend! Jennee's right. You deserve a special award for walking in all that snow!
