4 no drive days: This was a tough one. I drive to work 5 days a week, meaning I had to cut back on my weekend driving to meet this goal. Not wanting to become a complete hermit, I decided to run errands after work to "earn" the ability to drive on either Saturday or Sunday. It worked (for the most part) and I didn't use my car on the 3rd, 9th, 10th, and 29th.
Hot breakfast: Unless we count warming up frozen tater tots, nope. Didn't happen.
Read 5 books: Six this month! I enjoyed Bomb, The One and Only Ivan, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, and The 100-Year-Old Man (click to read a longer review). Son and Happier at Home were okay.
Plan my garden: Check! I pulled the dead stuff out over the weekend, but still need to add compost. Then I can sit back and wait for warmer weather (which might suck if the weather keeps teasing us with 50-degree days followed by 30-degree days).
And for April:
Read an old book: I've been reading a ton of new books lately because I'm in a vicious cycle: read/hear about a new/popular/award-winning book, add it to my library request list, wait for the book to arrive, drive to the library to pick it up, then check out only that book. I don't browse the library shelves as often as I did in days of yore, so I'm mostly reading books written in the last 10 years (Goodreads even graphs it for you). Nothing wrong with that, but every once in a while, I need to break out of my routine, you know? Any suggestions?
Take 200 photos: I bought a new camera. (My previous model, circa 2005, was passed down to my younger brother.) I need to learn to use it, and the best way to do that is by practicing. So get ready for some (hopefully) better photos around here.
Read 168 Hours: I've heard wonderful things about this book, but I've also heard the activities and exercises are what make it so valuable. I want to take my time reading it, and completing the activities. A month should do the trick.
Craft something: After Christmas, my craftiness needed a break to recharge. But I'm starting to feel the itch to make something . . not sure what quite yet.
In other news, I changed the blog's theme and layout a bit. I'm torn. I like having stuff on the side bar over there to the right, but I miss how sleek my old layout was. What do you think? Any preferences?
