fall goals 2015

Fall - the return of routine and to do lists, soup simmering on the stove and hot meals fresh out of the oven. Welcome back, favorite season. My seasonal goals:
                    

1. Become Bob MFing Vila in the home improvement project arena.

2. Get up 15 minutes earlier one weekday each week.

3. Attend Opera on the Mall and 20th Year high school reunion. Fellow classmates, did you get your tickets?

4. Participate in a Pancreatic Cancer Walk with my family in memory of my Grandmom.

5. Finish using the remaining nail polishes in my arsenal - for those of you playing along at home, I have used a different nail polish without repeating every time I paint my nails or toes since January 1 thanks to an idea from Steph @ Insert Classy Here. My collection is large but I'm nearing the end.

6. Outdoors:
       a) Clean old cushions and store.
       b) Winterize flower beds.
       c) Yard cleanup/winterization.

7. Check out the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk.

8. Gather whatever gear I need for Africa trip and make appointments for shots.

9. Get miles situation straightened out and book flights for New Orleans using miles.

10. Bake french bread.

11. Wish The Boss a happy 66th birthday today. (dunzo)

What's on your to do list this fall?

  2. I need to make a list but I love the home projects one. I think painting all the trim in my house will make the list. I say No to getting up any earlier. Ha!

  4. To eat your French bread. And... How often do you paint your nails?? I'm impressed. I don't know why I don't do that... Probably because I'm left handed and a complete gimp with my right hand.... so it looks like a 3 year old made my hand their art project?

  6. I hope you can keep in touch from Africa. I will take some French bread. Hot from the oven. My goal is to savor every moment.

  7. I forgot all about the nail polish thing. My goodness! It took 9 months to get near the end? I can't even imagine that. I painted my nails once this year and was proud of myself. :P I don't know if you took pictures, but I bet you could make an awesome collage rainbow with all the colors.

    New Orleans and Africa! Sounds like amazing trips you have planned. And getting up earlier is one I should have put in my own goals list.

  9. Fall holds our anniversary & vacation - so I look forward to it!!!

    I need to look for a Pancreatic cancer walk around here - it affects my family & I love to support that.

  10. Good luck becoming Bob Villa! I can't believe you're almost done with your polish collection. Do you have photos of each one on your nails? Because I'm definitely curious how many you have!

  11. You are rockin' that polish challenge- I'm impressed! I want to start gradually getting up earlier- I think I always fail at getting up early bc I try to go frrom getting up at 7, to getting up at 5:30. Baby steps might be the key :)

  12. That's awesome you've kept up with the nail polish challenge. I own less than 10 colors so wouldn't last too long. I love Fall too although I can't say we get any real any of the nice weather. It's still hot as fug. Maybe I just like the pumpkin beer and all the food that comes with Fall.

  14. ooo, making french bread sounds incredible.

    i can't believe you're going to Africa!! So, so cool!

  15. Now that you're almost done with the polish challenge the question I have is did it help you purge any of them? I have lots of colors and usually choose based on my mood.

  16. Can't wait to see some home improvement projects! Guess I should finish O's baby book, up to Year 2 at least. Read 2 books by bloggers. Go apple picking (done). Make apple pie. Make apple butter. Make apple muffins.

  17. And now I have the scent of fresh baked bread in my nose and it wont leave! I am hoping to try a pie from scratch this fall. I am terrified! I will have the rest of my goals and my summer recap up tomorrow. Holla Fall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Did I miss the post where you announced you're going to Africa or do I just have a short memory?? How exciting!! And also that nail polish idea is FANTASTIC. I think I need to do that!

  19. What will you be doing with your extra 15 mins?!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wait... Africa?? Did I miss hearing about this? Tell us more, please!
    I've missed doing seasonal goals... I think I'm going to come up with some. You always have such a fun variety of things!

  21. I like the idea of getting up earlier one day a week! You're doing so good with the nail polish challenge you set for yourself!!

  22. Even though you put me to shame, I absolutely love your seasonal to do lists! They inspire me :-)

  23. I'm nearing the end of my nail polish collection too. What should our next item be? It has worked really well for me because I've given away colors that I didn't love and found some I didn't even know i would like. Also, I hope you split your vacation recaps into a few posts and show so many pictures. I can't wait for the shit MFD said vacation style.

  24. We're doing a pancreatic walk/run in the fall too, so I better add it to my fall goals so that I can check it off...
