Goodbye summer, hello fall

Some people had lengthy summer bucket/to-do lists. I knew I wouldn't have time to check a bunch of things off, so I kept my list short. Very short.  I only had three things I wanted to accomplish this summer:

- Clean out my closets. -- SUCCESS!!
I did this a few weeks ago, actually. I got rid of five bags of clothes -- four for donation and one for trash.  Unreal.  It was great to get rid of so many clothes, but a side benefit is that I reorganized and can now see where the holes are in my work wardrobe. Time to shop!

- Pay off a credit card.  -- SUCCESS!!  
I have one completely paid off and another is down to one more payment.  That leaves me with just one credit card, but the balance is pretty high. If all goes as planned, it will be paid off by next summer. Wish me luck.

-  Finish editing one of my writing projects. -- FAIL.
With the exception of this past Sunday, I spent zero time writing and/or editing this summer. But after getting back in the groove this past weekend, I would like to start penciling in a few hours of writing time every Sunday. We'll see how I do with that.

Two out of three isn't bad.

And here comes fall, which has a whole new set of fun activities to take on.  Here are my goals for the next few months:

- Go to a pumpkin patch or apple orchard.
I haven't gone to one in ages. It's time to change that.

- Carve pumpkins.
I did this a few years ago and had so much fun.

- Watch "Hocus Pocus," "Beetlejuice," and "Ghostbusters."
I'm not a fan of horror movies. Those are the closest I'll get to any Halloween movies.

- Participate in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).
Yep. I have the writing bug now.  I'm ready to get back to it.

Do you have fall bucket list or to-do list?


  1. 2/3 definitely isn't bad! That's a solid list for fall, too. I have pumpkin and apple picking on mine as well! Good luck on your new goals!

  2. Good luck with your fall goals! I gotta get myself out to an apple orchard soon. I looove the smell of fresh apples in the air :) And of course apple pie....

  3. Yay for NaNoWriMo! I haven't decided if I'm going to do it this year or not.
