Where I Stand...

Okay...I really do want to get started on my 101 (tasks) in 1001 (days) list...and I'm really making January 1 the hard deadline to start this thing. But, not including today...that leaves 3 days to fill out my list. This is what I have from my previous posts...

  41. Silas Marner by George Eliot
  42. The Sound of Their Music: The Story of Rodgers and Hammerstein by Frederick Nolan
  43. Twelve Ordinary Men by John MacArthur
So that means I have 3 days to come up with 61 more things. No problem! ;) But...if you happen to read this blog in the next 3 days...I could sure use some help filling out the list. Here's what I anticipate the rest of the categories to be:

10 Cities To Visit
10 Foods/Restaurants To Try
10 Festivals/Events To Attend
10 Places To Visit (museums, botanical gardens, etc.)
10 Things To Make
10 Things To Try - I haven't thought this last one through...so I may change it to something like "10 Miscellaneous Things" that don't fit in a previous category.

Wish me luck! =)

Home Sweet Home

After a week and a half in Hawaii...I finally made it back home. I know there's no snow storms or anything of the like to complain about, but it is much cooler here in SoCal than when I departed. When the shuttle driver drove us home from the airport, he even pointed out the frost on the roofs of the houses in our neighborhood. Brrr...

And now begins the task of catching up on mail, emails, lyrics, posting pictures and running random errands...especially before Christmas. I'm tired just thinking about it. ;) Ah well...better get cracking...

North, South, East, West

Well...I headed East for a weekend in November and promptly neglected my blog. Now, I'm West of home (in Hawaii) and trying to start it back up again. Aside from lack of internet the next few days, I'm trying to keep up with writing. I'm also trying to fill up my 101 tasks before the end of the year, so that I can start on the list by January 1st. Let's see if all these things come to fruition. ;)

As far as Oahu goes...it's been pretty fun the past day and a half...despite the torrential rains and flash flood warnings. =P I just hope it lets up soon so that I can actually tour the island before we leave...at the very least...I need to visit one of those shrimp trucks I've heard so much about. Oh...and the Honolulu marathon starts in about 5 hours...so I hope the rains let up for the poor souls trying to run over 26 miles.

Alright...I must bid you all adieu before my internet connection runs out...maybe I'll buy more internet time tomorrow. Until next time...aloha. =)
