Second Quarter Progress

Before we get too much into July, I should do the quarterly update for April through June.

  1. I have made no progress on travelogues. Sigh.

  2. I have sorted some papers but that is a very minimal start to organizing my finances.

  3. I did use up scrap yarn in the Artisphere Yarn Bomb project and in the Butterfly Project (for which I mailed off 11 crocheted butterflies to the Holocaust Museum of Houston at the end of July). But I keep finding more. I need to work on some charity afghans with it.

  4. I did the One Day Hike! I can claim complete victory over a goal for the year! Yay, me!

  5. I am about 25 pages into the New Testament. So, there’s a long way to go, but at least I made a start.

  6. I’ve added another 3 Oscar winning movies, so I am up to 9 for the year so far. I expect to complete this goal within the next couple of weeks, possibly as soon as Wednesday.

  7. I’ve been to 2 minor league games – the Portland Sea Dogs and the Potomac Nationals.

  8. I didn’t add on any Volksmarch baseball events, alas, largely because the weather transitioned from too hot to too cold. That means I still have 14 to go.

I also completed two life list items. I’ve seen every extant Gilbert and Sullivan operetta live. And I drank a Singapore Sling at the Long Bar of the Raffles Hotel in Singapore.

Overall, I’d say the year is going reasonably well, though I have a few challenges I am coping with right now.
