Well, today was a very, very windy day...windy and rainy and cool. A good day for soup. I didn't make soup but I did make an old standby. Creamed chip beef over toast. However, I used tuna instead. Basically all I did was make a white sauce, add a can of tuna, some frozen peas and cheese. Served it over lightly buttered toast. Actually, it's a very satisfying, filling and inexpensive meal.
Now that the end of October is almost at hand, I thought that an update on my Fall Goals was in order.
Work on the book of meditations - My writer's block finally lifted so I am back to writing. As a matter of fact, I am now in the process of beginning to rewrite the book in HTML. Not a favorite project but definitely suggested for Kindle. Lot's left to do, but I feel much better about my progress.
Bring remainder of furniture down to NYC - Everything from Maine is here. As soon as the piece from Beacon gets here this coming Saturday, I will begin rearranging.
Create a more permanent home/studio - Next week, I hope to have a great start on this one.
Decorate for fall - Done, but will change as the apartment is rearranged
Attend Quilter's Take Manhattan - Attended and had a great time.
Back to regular exercise - I'm doing better and getting in at least 15 miles a week but I want to increase that mileage.
Back to better eating - It will be easier once my youngest son moves out at the end of the week.
Lose five pounds each month - Going to make this goal this month
Join Craft Group at local Library - I found a needlework group that meets once a week at the Library for the Deaf in Manhattan. They crochet, knit, weave, quilt, etc. Going to give it a try next Monday. Also, I joined The Empire's Quilt Guild which is truly fun.
Learn GIMP - I have the manual downloaded and am slowly working my way through it. Sometimes I feel like the guy with squiggly eyes as I go round and round trying to figure out what I have missed...usually something very simple.
Learn to juggle - This may be a lost cause, but I persist.
Gear up for long bike rides - This one is not happening yet. And unless we have less windy days, it may have to wait until next spring.
Begin planning and creating gifts for the holidays - Yes, I have both the Eye Candy Mini Quilts and the fabric ornaments underway.
Continue exploring NYC - Of course, I plan on continuing these adventures but not this week. Well, I will be going up to the Bronx for lunch on Thursday.
So how are your goals/plans/changes going? I hope that you've had some success in achieving them. And, even more, I hope that those changes have had a positive effect for your life.
Oh, and are you ready for trick or treaters this year? With Halloween landing on a Saturday, and a great weather report in my area, I think that it will be banner year.
That's all folks...
Thanks for stopping in...
Talk to you tomorrow...
