  19. Read: 4 New Fiction Books this month from authors I have never read before.
  20. Read: 2 Biographies this month. I read The Astronauts Wives Club.  It was really good.  It was told like a story, but it says it is a “true story”.  My only complaint was that there were too many people for me to keep up with and keep straight as to who was who.  It did make me interested in learning more about the original astronauts!
  21. Read: 4 Additional Books this month. I breezed through a book on Adult ADD today.  It was okay – but as someone with ADD, and as the book was directed towards those with ADD, it should have had shorter paragraphs and more bullet points and pictures.  It was hard to read through for me.  And honestly, I only skimmed it.  I have a really hard time reading something that isn’t tied to a story.
  22. Watch: 2 Documentaries this month.
  23. Watch: 4 Movies this month. (10.3) Watched Something Borrowed.  It was really good! (10.5) Always a glutton for punishment, I watched What to Expect When You Are Expecting.
  24. Watch: 2 Reality TV shows this month (just to see what all the fuss is about!)
  25. Watch: 2 New TV Shows I have never watched before this month. (10.4) Modern Family.
  26. Arts & Crafts: Create 5 new Halloween/Fall crafts this month.
  27. Recipes: Make 2 meals this month from new recipes. (10.6) I made a baked apples and brown sugar dessert.  I wanted to include my homemade caramel sauce, but I screwed it up.
  28. Photography: Do 2 photo sessions this month. I did a mini session of some trees at the Library on 10.5.
  29. Draw: 1 Picture this month.
  30. Write: 2 Poems this month.
  31. Get Out: Go to a crowded bar or to a movie one night.

Ongoing: These items I will continue going forward, but don’t feel they should take up a challenge line item going into the future.

  1. Continue working on the flexibility of my hips. Completed this during my meditation.
  2. Continue working on the flexibility of my shoulders/upper back. Completed this during my meditation.
  3. Continue learning sign language.
  4. Continue studying astronomy.
