no knitting.

i can hear the collective gasp across the internet. whenever i have a long weekend, i make a list of things i'd like to get accomplished. with columbus day around the corner, i've jotted down some non-knitting projects that i'm hoping will get me caught up before the end of the year. i really like to start the year with new project/goals, etc. i'm not really missing out on knitting time since i'll have time in hilton head (i'm not driving!) and when i'm in houston. the changing seasons provide a natural deadline for me, and with fall finally here, some things just need to be finished. a few things i on my list:

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.

Kudos to you for planning ahead! I roasted two chickens the other day and made stock for this fall. It feels so good to have that ready to go, doesn't it? Mary and I were talking about Thanksgiving food and now I'm excited about it but have to wait for a couple of months!
