Winter Goals Update!

How is she doing? Ashi Danza!! She is doing quite well.

As you may recall, I posted about my winter goals not too long ago. And I am doing so well that I may have to update my challenges.

Bookie Progress

Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams (meh)
A Gift for a Rogue by Parks (ok)
Gypsy Rizka by Lloyd Alexander (TGR=Thumping Good Read)
Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich (jolly for the season)
Partial read: Drinking Water: A History by Salzman (strong start of lore)

I intend on going back to finish reading the Salzman book but I just got tired of renewing it from the library at present. I am currently reading The Professor and the Madman by Simon Winchester.

It is a non-fiction book about how the Oxford English Dictionary came about. Fairly interesting so far, but I’m just a couple of chapters into it. The holidays are not friendly for folks trying to get reading done. There is so much to do and obligations (although enjoyable) that one must fulfill.

Don’t worry. I’m sure I’ll get plenty of reading done in the next few months ahead. They are for the most part dead months and terrible weather outdoors sends readers under the covers.

Embroidery Projects 
That I’ve made
-Headbands x2
-Bookmark with a music related quote on it (in progress)

I have a few other projects planned but it seems to take me ages to go from the planning to the stitching phase. I love planning them though.

Recipe Experiments
-Tapioca pudding (utter failure)
-Sausage and potato breakfast bake (amazing yet greasy)
-Golden brownies from scratch/blondies (good if you like that type of thing)
-Nutella cookies (thank you Pinterest!)
-Greek Lemon Chicken
-Hasselback potatoes

Other Goal Updates
I have made pretty much zero progress on my belly dancing and short story writing goals. I did do a quite youtube search for a belly dancing video and found a decent one but haven’t made any moves yet.
