It's Thanksgiving week here in the USA which adds its own set of goals into the usual mix. It will just be Ken and I around our table this year but that is not stopping me from going big with our traditional dinner. Yes, we will have lots of leftovers because I love stuffing so much, and it tastes so much better cooked in the bird, that I always get the largest that will fit into my oven. I am that person. I am perfectly fine with eating leftovers for awhile and not having to spend time out of my day cooking. It's how I normally operate anyway.
But there are other things I need to accomplish this week as well. All too soon after Thanksgiving on Thursday comes Dec 1st. A whole new set of activities come with Advent, but I am getting ahead of myself. Dec. 1st is also the release of the final block in this year's BOM, Star Light, Star Bright. So, near the top of my list is getting that blog post written. I have some items to get out to my pattern testers as well. And this week I also have some newsletters to write- for my own newsletter, ans I also do the newsletter for our local Audubon chapter.
I am trying to get back into the Flylady habit. For those that are not familiar, Flylady is a site dedicated mainly to keeping a clean home. This week she has us focused on the master bedroom...I will be doing a LOT of de-cluttering in there for sure. It seems to be my dumping ground when I don't want to take time to find a proper home for things.
With the coming of winter comes my commitment to doing a citizen science project Ken and I have participated in for the last two years. Winter Raptor surveys. We have two routes that we cover which total almost 200 miles. The purpose of this survey is to collect data on the numbers of raptors, (hawks, eagles, owls) that winter in the area. The area being covered extends from our home state of Oregon into California, Washington and Idaho. Our area of the state is the winter home to hundreds of Bald Eagles so we get such a thrill going out to see how many we can see. And then there are the occasional surprises of rare bird sightings as well. We will need to fit that in this week as well.
Somewhere in there I need to make time just to relax and do something that restores my soul as well. So, all in all, I think I have plenty to keep me busy this week. I have laid out my plan. Now on to meeting the goals I have set for myself. What do you have on tap to accomplish this week?
