get PJ's college applications completed and ready to go
get my photos in albums from last year-they're printed and together just need to finish this final part.
yard work-ugh, it's like laundry.
work on organizing this year's photos for digital scrapbooks: this means also acquainting myself with photoshop which i haven't done YET.
seasonal clothes/shoe/house shopping
stocking the freezer: hope to do a few servings of meatballs, roast a couple chickens, my turkey stock for thanksgiving and cookie/cracker dough for those get togethers when you need to whip up something quick. this keeps me from being frazzled once the holiday season gets here. i hate grabbing something at the store if i can plan ahead to have something homemade to take along-that's just one of my quirks.
de-cluttering closets and desks and a couple cleaning/clearing projects.
i've also made notes of knitting & sewing projects i'd like to finish by November 1. to do this i'm going to have to stop looking at what mary, lynn, and beth have queued on ravelry. until after christmas i'm really hoping to only have quicky projects on the needles and cutting table so i can enjoy time with friends, and silly christmas movies. if i meet these goals i might treat myself to something special-like #1 signature dpns! happy wednesday and a knitting WIPs post is coming soon-am loving what i've got on the needles right now.
