101 update

So, it turns out that I have accomplished a couple of things from my 101 in 1001 list but not updated. They were pretty small anyway.

#21 - Find something to do here that I miss from Boone and always forget we have. I have happily thought of three things that relate to this. One is the Sunrise Theater in Southern Pines that offers foreign and independent films (and others), as well as small snacks and wine while watching your movie of choice. That is a very Boone-like thing to do. Next is Artist Alley which isn't quite on the scale of Boone or West Jefferson, but I really like our eclectic local artists!! Another is Potter's Cafe, which is a great coffee shop where we go to hear live music every so often. That's definitely a Boone thing.

#38 - cook 50 new recipes
I might as well list the 50 recipes I tried. If there are any that are duplicate names, that means I tried different recipes for the same type of food.

As you can see, lunch with mom and dad really helped since I was making a new soup every other week!! Don't worry y'all, I still plan on using you as guinea pigs for new recipes.

#75 - Invite one family from our neighborhood to church
I did this one but neglected to mark it off because they never came. No one wants to drive 30 minutes to church for some reason, even though we offered to carpool. Even then, no one wants to be at church as much as we are. But anyway, I did my part in inviting them!

#92 - Sell all yard sale stuff
This was actually aimed toward getting rid of the stuff in a big box in our attic. It turned into a project where I've gotten rid of that, and much more. I have sold anything that's worth anything at all, and the rest has gone to the Coalition. Of course, the donation pile never really completely goes away.

That's it for now! Although I'll be able to check off another one very shortly.....
