October, November, and December, 2011
I am nine months into my project to complete 101 things in 1001 days with 41 tasks done and 60 more to go; I definitely slowed down during the last few months. Still, progress is progress. With pickles dipped in cheese, Led Zeppelin, and a curling class haiku, I had more than my share of fun!
Tasks I accomplished:
#13. Listen to 10 classic albums all the way through: In the Day of My Youth … Listening to Led Zeppelin. Finished! So much fun.
#16: Attend a New Year’s celebration; kiss at midnight: MCB on NYE.
#56. Make cheese fondue: Christmas Eve Fondue. A new Christmas Eve tradition?
#61. Have my kids pick five ingredients from the grocery store; feature them in a meal: Grocery store serendipity.
#66. Write a haiku each day for a week that sums up or reflects upon the day: Haiku a Day.
#87. Make a fire in the fireplace: October Surprise: A cold “staycation” without power.
#89. Adopt a word at savethewords.org: adimpleate.
Tasks I am making progress on:
#14. Watch all of IMDb’s Top 250 Movies. Movies watched:
- Persona (Tried to like it; so boring)
- Rebecca (Didn’t like it; liked the book though)
- Once Upon a Time in the West (Long and slow, but great)
- My Neighbor Totoro (Pretty cool)
#24. Comment on 50 random blogs. I made a lot of progress.
#32. Walk 10,000 steps a day for an average of six days a week: Still Stepping. The streak lives!
#53. Eat meatless at least one day a week on average. (Working on this, Meatless Monday updates here.)
#75. Read at least 15 classics I’ve never read. (Working on this.)
- Rebecca: I am not Rebecca–a sort of book review
- A Room with a View — I liked it well enough while reading, but it was ultimately disappointing.
#96. See at least five live shows:
Let’s see what the winter will bring!
