As another season turns, it's time to start a whole new round of to-do lists.   

Hmmm. I guess I should write out a list for this season, though I'm not entirely sure what needs doing this season. Besides, like, pretending to look for a full-time job when I know full well that I'm not going to be hired by the time I go home for the holidays.  Undecided

Boy that's depressing. Let's write a more fun list!

Yarn
1. Finish. The. Gloves.
2. Make Star Wars hat for Taylor.
3. Make princess (either Ariel or Aurora) for Zoe.
4. Make cactus set for Audrey.

Friends
1. Make card(s) for Audrey, Jessie, Mike, and Julia's birthdays (0/4).
2. Skype/call/AIM Audrey, Mike, and Julia once a month (0/4).
3. Write letters to Amy, Erin, and Melissa (0/3).
4. Attend another Sit N' Knit, and another HSP meetup.

Books
1. Finish Perdido Street Station.
2. Start Nature and the Human Soul.

Gods
1. Come to some sort of understanding with Brighid re: Certain Things.
2. Pick out a tea set from etsy to buy as devotion, and pick out prints for book shrine.

Pens
1. Figure out if I'm doing NaNoWriMo.
1a. If I am, figure out what the hell I'm writing.
1b. If I figure out what I'm writing, WIN.
 
Hiking
1. Go to Sunrise area of Mt. Rainier before snow comes!
2. Go to Source Lake.

You and me both.  It wasn't my best season either.

I had the best season ever, and usually I do REALLY poor. So maybe it was opposite season.

Oh...my list? Right....

Since I'm drooling over one of your necklaces right now, I may be able to help with this goal.

As another season turns, it's time to start a whole new round of to-do lists.   

How it works:
1. Post your list of goals to be accomplished during the Autumn (Spring for those of you south of the equator).  Please either number your list or post a running total of the number of goals made and completed.
2. After the equinox, periodically post updates and progress reports on this thread. 
3. I'll try to give progress updates for the group every week or two.
4. The fun ends on the last day of the season, when we'll start a new thread and whole new lists.
5. Most important: Have fun!

Remember, this to-do list doesn't officially start until September 22nd, but feel free to begin posting your lists now.

Good Luck!   

1. Move. 
     a. Pack.
     b. Clean.
     c. Find a place.
     d. Purge unnecessary stuff.

2. Christmas
      a. Presents
      b. Shipping
      c. Cards

The Husband has a job.  Eventually we will have a start date for said job.  And then we move 4 hours from current location.  The Move will probably cross over into January.  (sigh).

Oh, and I forgot, I've restarted my walking to Rivendell goal.  The Husband and I have been taking short jaunts out and about.  Kick starting the old system, since I hadn't done anything but work and sit on my butt for a year.  At my current rate, I'll be in Rivendell, oh say sometime next fall.  Roll Eyes  So I guess the goal here is :

3. Exercise
     a. 10 miles a week dedicated walking/exercise route.
     b. Once the H. heads off to start his new job - Wii fit.
