Seasons in the Sun(shine state)

One downside of living in Florida is that time passes almost without notice, since the usual seasonal cues aren't there. We've also had a very mild hurricane season so far this year - hopefully it will stay that way!

It's October already, and I missing Autumn as usual. I did discover Yankee Candles thanks to a coworker, and their Autumn Wreath scent is very nice. As another coworker put it "It smells like not being in Florida this time of year". I have an open one on my desk at work (unlit, but I still get a mild scent).

But being the first of the month, it's time for monthly goals!
Goals for September:

    Carryovers: None!
  • Label past blog entries I've labeled many, but not all
  • Get to 150 hours on TW Fortunate Traveler (101List #44) Done! (167 hours as of 9/30)
  • Start wedding present for SIL Started!

Great progress on the stitching front! I finished the center panel on Fortunate Traveler, actually:

Looking ahead to the coming month:
Goals for October:

  • Finish labelling past blog entries
  • Finish wedding present for SIL
  • Crochet 5 squares for 63-Squares afghan (101List #59)

I'm not revealing what my SIL's gift is just yet, as she sometimes reads my blog and I don't want to spoil the surprise. All will be revealed in the fullness of time...
