The Eighth Month Challenges

As August is the eighth month and also in my opinion the longest and hardest to get through, I have designed an "8" challenge to get myself through it.

During August I will endevour to.......

* Cook 8 new dishes.

* Scrapbook 8 pages or make 8 cards.

* Organise 8 birthday or Xmas presents.

* Repair or mend 8 items in my home.

* Declutter 8 cupboards, drawers or shelves. (yes, again)

*Plant 8 plants or herbs.

*Donate 8 things to charity.

*Ebay 8 items.

*Clean 8 windows or screens

*Read Rhianna 8 bedtime stories.

* Master 8 new things.

*Visit 8 new places.

What do you think? Genius plan or hair brained scheme?

Great idea, I might have to adopt this to fit in to my plans, but you're sure gonna be busy!! Good luck.... :)

That is a novel idea, and I applaud you for coming up with it..... as long as you don't disappoint yourself if you don't manage to fulfill all these your resolutions.
Hugs - Jan

My DH is already doubting my ability to manage to learn 8 new things. But if I teach myself how to cook a perfect sponge cake then that is one new dish and a new skill at the same time. Look, I'm already cheating -haha

Genius plan! I lived in an apartment for years and cooked the same meals. I finally bought a house with MY OWN stove, refrigerator, etc. and felt inspired to cook. Every day I cook a different recipe and I LOVE it. I want to expand and learn other new skills as well.

Debbie said...

I think it is a great plan and hope you achieve all of them:0)

Vanessa said...

Oh yes please Emma. I need to get moving on the craft front. So much money spent - so few cards produced!!!!!!
