Been making progress towards my list, but really haven't a lot of time to blog so this is going to be a multi-tasking entry. Last weekend I was able to complete #47: Get a Library Card, now I just need to start using it. I haven't had a town library card since high school, which is actually kind of embarassing.
I also started going through and organizing my yarn stash over the past week for #24: Reduce Yarn Stash by 1/2. I knew I needed to have a starting point in order to know when I've reached half, so I organized everything and figured out both in yards and ounces how much yarn I actually have. I have 12,946 yards and 144.09 ounces. That's 7.35 miles of yarn, or around 9 pounds. Since I'm mostly concerned with keeping my yarn stash in a reasonable amount of space, I've decided that for determining "half" I will be mainly focusing on the actual weight rather than yardage. Having super bulky yarn will take up much more space than my laceweight, even with the same yardage, so I think that weight will be a more accurate way of figuring this out. I'm also hoping to keep it at around half of what I currently have for the remainder of my 101 days.
Lastly, I was able to try another new recipe. I made this recipe for a sweet potato casserole to bring with us for Thanksgiving, and it was delicious! The orange/ginger gave it a bit of a twist from the usual sweet potato pie w/marshmallows (which I've never really been a huge fan of, even though I do like sweet potatoes). For my dish, I also decided to add chopped carmelized onions to the top, which was really tasty. I didn't get to take any photos, but it's a dish I hope to make again so perhaps next time!
