I never did any goals for September because the month started off with me out of town and then I was slammed busy for a week. However, a new month as begun and a new set of goals!
But first, an update on Pixie’s new bed – she loves the bed. However, I think she didn’t like the pillow I put in it, so I took that out and left just the towel in there and she seems much happier. I took the pillow and put it on her usual perch by the window. Now she loves that, too!
She now uses both beds and seems supremely happy, which makes me happy
On to October goals!
- Try at least one new recipe a week. This will help me plan meals a little better and get out of the rut I am in. I sometimes have the same thing for dinner 3 days in a row (and it isn’t leftovers!).
- Make a list of all the things to do around the house and actually do some of them. There are all those little projects that get neglected, like wiping down cupboards, neatening the closet, depapering the table, etc., that just hasn’t been getting done.
- Curb snacking. This one is starting to get away from me, so need to be more aware.
- The return of the Pink Picture! To promote awareness for breast cancer this month, I will post a picture of something pink whenever I do a post (except a recipe post because the pink picture doesn’t make sense in the archives). Along with the picture will be the link to click to help promote free mammograms.
That ought to keep me busy.
To be filed under just another little thing that made me happy:
I broke a string on my guitar a couple weeks ago and put in a replacement. Turns out I hate that brand of string. It buzzed and sounded yucky and was irritating me when I practiced. So I ordered some new strings. The annoying thing with strings is that I can’t just get a single string and have to purchase a whole set. If only I broke a different string each time, but I tend to break the same ones (E, A and B) and I have a few partial sets now. Anyone need a G string? Anyway, I digress. Yesterday came my new strings and I love the replacement.
I am tempted to do all rest of the strings, but stringing is a pain in the ass. Hopefully these will last as advertised. I am going to have to make another video before the end of the year. Maybe a Christmas tune?
Today’s pink picture? It has to be Pixie’s new bed, right?
Welcome to October!
