101 in 1001 Weekly Update #39!!!
Let there be snow! I came home tonight after my first Christmas shop of the year and as I hiked up the stairs of the subway to the streetcar I saw it softly drifting from the sky and landed on my nose. The streetcar came very shortly thereafter but not so quick I didn't get to enjoy the magical moment.
Another full task complete with week with #85 - Be on time for a month. That one was such a pain! But things to note: do not kid yourself on a) how long it takes you to get ready and b) how long it takes to get somewhere. Those 2 things are *key* to being on time.

The completion of that task brings me to 31/101 and I am roughly 2 years from completion of my 101! It's interesting because my goal was to be 1/3rd in by this tim, even though less than a third has past. 60 tasks to go, which is 30/year. Fun fun! I wonder where I will be Dec 1 of 2007. Will I be at 61/101? Could be... we'll see!
One more review done for #14 - Write something about all the films I see: The Fountain. Only 44 reviews films outstanding.. oh my I need to lock myself in my apartment and get up to date. I'm sure that will happen with things like Christmas shopping, and making cookies, and festivities and.. well.. anything is possible right?
#38 - Keep a plant alive from ‘The Auction’ from one year to the next - update:
3/3 still alive! The begonia's little babies are really growing. Berry's looking stronger too! Well mostly , there is one side leave that looks kinda sad. Burrows is doing ok but is loosing a few of the.. ummm.. petally appendages thingies.
#21 - Save a part of every paycheque - done.
#94 - Read every day - done! The book I wanted to start next I couldn't find! I've bopped around between a few and am mostly reading a crazy romance novel, I don't even remember what it's called to be honest but it's fun and silly. I also finished reading "True Balance" as part of the True Balance group but haven't finished posting - that will be up soon I hope!
