Turkey Time!

We survived October! It was touch and go for a bit there, but we made it. :). Let’s see how we did on the October Goals.

  1. Set up sewing room. Well, it’s not done yet, but I did make some progress! I have all of the furniture assembled (for the most part) but I still have loads of boxes to deal with. Still, it’s getting there!
  2. Finish setting up art room. Lol. We’ve made some progress here, but it mostly involved opening up the boxes and putting bins where ever they fit on the shelves. I really want to take a couple of days and actually ORGANIZE this space!
  3. Finish assembling furniture. This is mostly done! I think all I have left are my office chair and an extra dresser that we’re going to use for storage.
  4. Winter clothes inventory/ shopping. Done! Well, I think this will be an ongoing process, but we have made a good start. We all have snow pants, snow boots, and snow coats at least!
  5. Set up guest area. This is still a work in progress as we ended up making an unexpected trip down to Texas this month so we’ve had to reschedule our visitors. But we did get a sofa bed!
  6. Blog 5 times. I made 3?
  7. Halloween costumes. Done!
  8. Set up big computer. Done!
  9. Africa photos. Well, I got them all of the camera and I’ve started the process of culling them.
  10. House project list. Didn’t make much progress on this, but we’ll get there.

Now for November?

  1. Advent Calendar. I have to finish this this year!
  2. Advent Activities. I want to be more intentional with our advent activities and plan them ahead of time. I know I say this every year, but this time I mean it! lol.
  3. Thanksgiving. It’s just going to be us for Thanksgiving this year so we are trying to come up with some new traditions. Suggestions?
  4. Christmas list. I would like to start this a bit earlier this year, especially since we’re going to need to ship everything?
  5. Project Life. I’d like to do October 2023 and then also 4 old layouts.
  6. NaNoCraftMo. RaptorDad is doing NaNoWriMo this year, so I’m giving NaNoCraftMo another go! Yesterday’s project was our “gratitude tree.” Every day each of us will write one thing we are grateful for on a paper leaf and then tape it to the tree.
  7. Blog. Maybe 4 more posts in November?
  8. Hang some pictures.
  9. Christmas Cards? Speaking of pictures, I want to send out Christmas cards this year. I should work on that…
  10. Front yard pictures. I had this really cool idea to do a seasonal photo shoot in our front yard for each season. Who knows if this will really happen, but in my head it’s super cool! So the fall photo will involve us raking leaves and jumping in them. 🙂
