I love making lists of stuff to do. I hate taking stock of what I accomplished from that list.
Oops. I should have looked before posting that last comment. :( The coffee hasn't hit yet.
Sorry to hear you're dropping Nano, but I can't say it's a bad decision. I'm at 41K words now, but the whole "quantity over quality" idea isn't working for me. I'm sure I'll finish this year on time. I'm reasonably sure my first NaNo will also be my last.
Where do you find "that cider"? I need something with a little kick for Thanksgiving consumption.
as a very goal oriented person, I find making lists gets me closer to getting things done.. sometimes, it's more important to enjoy the process than try to do everything... (well that's my story and I'm sticking to it... so I would had done the homework first too)
Hey...you got a good start on that list. And you certainly accomplished more than I did this weekend.
Shedir is on my list of patterns I must eventually make - I even have the yarn for it. Might even get to it in the next few years!
Can't wait to see how yours turns out.
Yum! Cider! Have you tried Woodpecker cider? I've got a few bottles chilling in the fridge.
Well, at least with lists, you know where you stand!
And, I adore fresh apple cider, but it's got to be the real stuff, from a farm stand. The apple juice they sell in the grocery store with the name "cider" just doesn't cut it.
Although, yeah, the Woodpecker alcoholic stuff is darn tasty....
I'm very glad you won't be "distracted and irritable throughout Thanksgiving". I'm planning on bringing some wine down; I'm very intrigued by your cider (and also a little afraid of it). Luckily I don't think Loy owns anything that qualifies as "heavy machinery"...
Numbers 1-4 are exactly the same on my list (Except I'm not working on Shidir). Mac & Cheese sounds yummmmmmy.
I love on that cider post you wrote "the cork wouldn't go back in, so obviously we had to finish it"! Ha! I have the same problem EVERY TIME I open a bottle of wine! ;)
At least you made a start and you have a list to work from!!
Thanks for coming down today! Sorry I didn't stay to compare knitting-it was supposed to be my day off (as was yesterday) and I was really, really, tired. I've got a few projects in progress (mostly socks, mostly for December, mostly not likely to get completed in time) and I'll post pics this weekend.
Yep...I need to make a list. Good idea!
Lots of accomplishments; happy holiday!
I, too, made a good start with the novel during NaNoWriMo, but I've abandoned any hope of reaching 50k. I wanted to actually be able to spend time with loved ones at Thanksgiving and it just wasn't going to happen if I was spending every spare minute at the computer.
I feel somewhat confident that once December is over I will return to the novel. But it's good to know your limits. Cheers to you for knowing what works for you.
