It’s been 130 days since I started my 101 Things list – 13% of my time is up, so it seems like a good time to see how I’m tracking toward list completion. Here are some things I’ve recently finished or made progress on:
- #16 Make one recipe from every cookbook I own: entries for this were frozen at 63 cookbooks, so if I get more, they don’t get added to the project. I’ve made recipes from 10 books so far, so I’m about 16% done with this task – not too bad, but it seems like a lot of work just to cross one thing off the list! One of these days I’ll write up the recipes and get some blog posts done for these!
- #35 Complete a cook-through (or drink-through) blog project: I’ve completed three recipes from Sangria so far, so I’m about 10% done with this one. It’s a little bit less daunting than the cookbook project, and I should be able to finish it fairly easily.
- #51 Hike to the top of Half Dome in Yosemite: I’m scratching this one off the list – I didn’t quite make it to the top, but I did discover that it’s not something I actually want to try to do, at least in the next couple of years – getting almost to the top is good enough for me!
- #57 Visit a US city I’ve never been to before: Our trip to Austin allows me to cross this one off (technically Fresno could have counted too, but since it wasn’t the main destination of our Yosemite trip, I held out for another trip.)
With numbers 51 and 57 crossed off, I have eleven things done and several others in progress. That’s about 11% done with 13% of my time gone – not too far behind, but there’s a lot left to be done – I’d better start making some progress on the rest of my list!
