Weekly Goals: February 14-20

Baby in a cape.  Because it's a baby in a cape.

Last Week's Goals:
  • Retest a few of the muffin recipes.  I made three this week: Cinnamon Banana Bread, which is ready for the book!, Lemon Blueberry, which I want to try a lemon glaze on, but is otherwise book ready; and PB Chocolate Banana, which still needs a bit of tweaking.  
  • Finish reading Garbage Land. Not done.  I spent my time watching the free Dressing Your Truth video series (sign up in the "learn your type" box on this page) and the free Nick Stephenson "How to Get Your First 10,000 Readers" video series, which I signed up for on the recommendation of Crystal Paine.  Both were really interesting!
  • Figure out an Iron Craft project for this week's challenge, the letter G.  Figured out something!  You'll see that post on Tuesday.
This Week's Goals:
  • Finish reading Garbage Land, and decide between reading Dressing Your Truth or How to Get Your First 10,000 Readers (free ebooks I got along with the video series I mentioned).  
  • Figure out my next muffin recipe to start testing.  I usually have at least 2-3 recipes going at once.  I have three levels of how I do this:

    First try: Figure out a flavor that sounds good, come up with the recipe and try it out.
    Tweaking: Work on the recipe and test it multiple times to make sure I have it just right, adjusting flavors and ingredients as necessary.
    Final recipe: Once I like it, make it one more time, take pretty pictures, type up the recipe.
  • Clear the garage sale stuff out of our entryway and get it all organized in the corner of the garage.  Hopefully we'll have a warm(er) day that I can do this.
Stuff I Like:

Schoola!  If you haven't started shopping at Schoola yet, you're missing out.  They have good quality and inexpensive kids' and womens' clothing, both used and new, and they're really awesome about giving buyer credits or offering promos and deals to their users.  I've gotten a bunch of good kids' clothes there, as well as a few dresses for myself.
If that hasn't convinced you to sign up yet, here's one more good deal.  Sign up through this link and you get a $20 credit for free!   And through tonight! February 14, use the code LATTELOVE on a $20 or more purchase, and get a free $5 Starbucks gift card emailed to you by February 19.  So you get free clothes and free coffee!  Go sign up now.

More Randomness:
Fellow Downton Abbey fans: Can we just take a minute to appreciate the character development that is Thomas Barrow?  Season one he was this despicable awful person, and now in season six I feel so bad for how he's being treated.  Superb writing there!
