2020 Goals Review for October

I really worked hard on my goals during October! 

 1. Lose 5 lbs. Hopefully this year I will be able to meet this goal. – I’m still doing well with my weight. I have kept up my exercising and eating right. 
 2. Crafts – I've met my goal. 
a. Knit 12 squares on my national park blanket. I have a total of 35 completed now. (There are 60 squares in the pattern, and this is year 3 of the project.) 
i. Completed 13 squares this year 
b. Charity – I want to crochet at least 3 prayer shawls and make 10 more NICU hats. 
i. January – prayer shawl completed 
ii. February – prayer shawl completed 
iii. June – prayer shawl complete 
iv. July – 5 NICU hats. 
v. October – 5 NICU hats 
c. Knit a sweater. – Completed the Ground Pepper Sweater and Gardengate Sweater
d. Knit a ZigZag scarf – Completed 
e. Repair the neckline on the Henley sweater I made a few years ago. – I looked at the sweater and realized that to fix the neckline, I would have to rip out both button bands and at this time, I’m not sure I want to do all that work so this goal probably won’t happen. I should receive partial credit for at least looking at it and considering it. 
3. Read 12 nonfiction books that are related to nature. – Completed 
a. The Eighty Dollar Champion: Snowman, The Horse That Inspired A Nation by Elizabeth Letts 
b. A Lion Called Christian: The True Story of the Remarkable Bond between Two Friends and a Lion by Anthony Bourke and John Rendall 
c. The Adventures of Henry Thoreau: A Young Man's Unlikely Path to Walden Pond by Michael Sims 
d. The Story of My Boyhood and Youth by John Muir 
e. The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey 
f. The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt's New World by Andrea Wulf 
g. The House of Owls by Tony Angell 
h. Forces of Nature by Brian Cox 
i. The Nature Fix by Florence Williams 
j. H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald 
k. The Honey Bus: A Memoir of Loss, Courage and a Girl Saved by Bees by Meredith May 
 l. Vanishing Fleece: Adventures in American Wool by Clara Parkes
