Autumn Goals.

I thought it would be a good idea to set myself some seasonal goals. And with it now being officially Autumn; my (and everyone else on the internets) favorite season, its the perfect time to start, right? Other than the obvious Autumnal activities; photograph the leaves, carve pumpkins, drink mulled cider and sprinkle cinnamon on everything. Here is what I plan to do, what about you?

- Build Something out of Wood - Back at the beginning of this year I said I really wanted to build my own dining table, I also planned to make wine racks for our home-brews. Dixon even bought me a drill! I just never got around to it, but now I have more room and a garden where I can do some DIY  without the fear of smashing things up. Dining table, planters, shelves. Lets see!

- A Photo an Hour - One a month each month through-out Autumn. I love doing these kind of photo posts, and love capturing every day things, I'm just crappy at making sure I do them on a regular basis. It'll be nice to have a good collection of them to look back on.

- Quilt (v.2) - Right, I set myself the goal of hand stitching a quilt in my 'Eighteen Before Twenty-five' goal list, and I did it; but it was so time consuming and was a crappy excuse for a quilt. This time I want to do one on my machine and actually finish it off properly. I swore I would never quilt again, but I'm going to give it one more try.

- Have a Fireworks Party - What better way to take advantage of having a garden for the first time then setting fire to things and having friends around? Sparklers, Catherine wheels, maybe toffee apples? Mulled wine and music. Fairy lights everywhere.

- At Home Regular Workouts - I just bought myself a yoga mat! When I lived with my parents I would do yoga quite regularly and now I really want to pick it back up. I also bought myself a skipping rope and some little hand weights. If you know me in real life, you probably know I have the weakest arms in existence. I really need to work on that. I'm going to aim for 3 times a week minimum.



  1. Those are some good goals! If you do have that fireworks party, make sure to take photos!! :D

  2. I like these goals, especially the fireworks party, that sounds like so much fun. And at home workouts is a good one too, I like doing an exercise DVD some mornings before work, I really want to try Yoga but can't find anywhere locally to do that that's not crazily expensive! xo
