My Christmas tree is up and decorated, and I'm working on sending out with this year's batch of cards, so I'm declaring autumn basically over. Time to see what I did and did not check off my Autumn To-Do List for this year!
~ Publish Cloaked Check! You can now buy it from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
~ Read House of Living Stones by Katie Schuermann Check! You can read my review here.
~ Read 5 other books from my TBR shelves Check! I read Luther: Biography of a Reformer by Frederick Nohl, Flashes of Splashes by Elizabeth McCleary, Film Noir: Light and Shadow edited by Alain Silver and James Ursini, The Screwtape Letters by C. S. Lewis, and A Sidekick's Tale by Elisabeth Grace Foley (review to come).
~ Read 3 books from the library Check! I read The Case of the Missing Marquess by Nancy Springer, Frames by Loren D. Estleman, and As You Wish by Cary Elwes.
~ Watch 5 movies from my TBW shelves Check! I watched Ivanhoe (1997), Jackie Robinson (2016), The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939), Daddy Long Legs (1955), and Hell on Frisco Bay (1955).
~ Go see Thor: Ragnarok Check! In fact, I've seen it three times now. I reviewed it here last week.
~ Make "Baked Oatmeal Bars" from this recipe. Check! My kids and I quite loved them, and I'm sure I'll be making them again.
~ Finish the skirts and cape I'm sewing for my kids Semi-fail. I did sew one skirt, but the rest are still languishing on my to-do pile.
~ Finish my Newt Scamander scarf Check! I finally finished my scarf! It is super-duper long, down past my knees on both sides. It goes perfectly with my long black coat, and I've already worn it a couple of times. It may have taken me almost a year to knit, but it's done! (By contrast, I crocheted a scarf for my daughter in three days last week. I crochet soooooooooo much faster than I knit.)
~ Repair/update the "mouse house," which is this playhouse I made for the kids out of an old sheet that I cut and sewed to fit over a card table. Fail. Total fail. Never touched it. Sigh.
Well, I have WAY more checks than fails on this list, so yay! I'm pretty happy with how much I accomplished over the past three months! I'll be posting my winter list of projects and goals soon.
How about you? Did you have any goals for this fall?
