Another Monday, another update! The weather this week has been all over the place. There was one morning I woke up and saw hints of snow, yet this weekend it was so mild I saw people on patios (14C... Torontonians are crazy about patios I tell you). Anyway, the pic above was from Sat morning - and it looked... fuzzy outside. Like it was snowing maybe but if time stood still. A fog of snow. But there was no snow. Weird!

On to the update! One full task complete with #30 - Perfect the smoky eye look . This one was a lot of fun. I actually completely filled up my camera space taking pics for it.

Two reviews done for #14 - Write something about all the films I see: Thin and Casino Royale . Only 45 reviews films outstanding, lol. I'll get to them! I will!!

#38 - Keep a plant alive from ‘The Auction’ from one year to the next
They are still alive!!!! After my unexpected repotting on my very little Berry plant, its actually looking much happier! Maybe it needed a little tlc to help set its roots:

#21 - Save a part of every paycheque - done.

#94 - Read every day - done! I'm finished reading "Tiger Eyes" by Judy Blume as well as continuing to read "True Balance" as part of the True Balance group. I'm still deciding what to read next, possible an adult Judy Blume book or maybe the 5th Harry Potter. I actually even bought and read (some of) the Globe & Mail on Saturday. Can you believe it?

#92 - Learn/Discover something new every day
Monday Nov 20/06 - This fun site that has challenges
Tuesday Nov 21/06 - definition: bonhomie - good-natured friendliness (Thanks Jamie!)
Wednesday Nov 22/06 - personal stuff
Thursday Nov 23/06 - How to tell how rare-well done a steak is by using your hand (yay for cooking shows!)
Friday Nov 24/06 - Today is the biggest shopping day in the US (day after Thanksgiving... did you know their Thanksgiving is always on Thurs therefore = 4day weekend?)
Saturday Nov 25/06 - 1 load of laundry isn't as heavy as 2, unless the dryer isn't really making things dry

OK, I don' "get" that last photo, where is your head? How come I only see part of your face?! How did you do that? I often ask you that question Shannon, LOL.

I love that "dare" site, fantastic!

Smokey eyes are wonderful and you got it down, way to go Shannon.

I think you probably had some frozen fog moving through the air, we get that with rain a lot. I can't believe it's so warm there Shannon!

Hi Shannon,

I can't sleep, so I'm down in the kitchen eating a really really good apple and deciding if, at 4:15 a.m. it is really worth it to go back to bed.

Another energizing report from Planet Shannon. This time I really enjoyed reading the Things You Learned.

If you could bottle just a drop of your tenacity, determination, Olympian attitude, please send it to Long Island. I love seeing you maintain your stride. I always give up just after starting.

Another week of great progress - WTG! The smoky eye look is out of this world. And yay to that little plant really taking root. You can see it's ready to keep on growing!

Wow, reading the Globe & Mail makes me think of your previous post about being back in the old 'hood. And this week was the first I learned about that shopping day madness after Thanksgiving in the US. I didn't know the Thursday thing - thanks for teaching me something! And I'm glad to have brought bonhommie into your life, hehe.

hehe Suzie.. the also pic is actually a reflection of me in my iPod (if you look on the left you can see part of the iPod logo)

Aw, Caroline sure I'll send you some determination energy & all that good stuff - you can do it!!!

It's true Jamie the Globe was a staple in the old hood! Mind you all I would read if for then was teh temperature and Facts & Arguements :)

Oh Shannon, that is just the coolest! Thank you for letting me know, it was driving me crazy, LOL.
