101 in 1001 review.....


My first month, and one thing crossed off the list.   Not hugely impressive.  I can say that I've started some things...  #1, and #5 I have looked into recipes,  I haven't actually tried any yet.   I have started (#71) reading Wuthering Heights.  Several times.  I am all the way to page 23.  bleh.  I have read 8 other books so far since January... just nothing 'classical'.  Numbers 57, 20 and 64 are more hopeful...  We had our 2nd fridge repaired, we just aren't using it exactly like we intended yet.  And I have started my kundalini yoga, but have taken a break due to crazy vertigo. I wont cross that one off till I am no longer prenatal, so it can just stay purple 'till July.  And I did start (#64) my vinegar and honey once a day, but paused that as I am adding a special powder to my morning smoothy that helps alkaline the blood.  That leaves me with number 23.  We did visit the Rio Salado Habitat area.  We had a lovely picnic, and are very much looking forward to a spring time visit.  Maybe I should wait a couple of months before revisiting the list.  Maybe then I will have more accomplished?  We'll see.
