september planning
posted by soe 1:14 am

We’re closing in on six months of pandemic shutdowns, travel restrictions, and general malaise. In an effort to keep these last months of the year from spiraling into a hot mess, I thought I’d come up with a list, similar to the ones I often make for weekends, of things I’d like to accomplish each month. I will not get mad at myself if I don’t cross items off, but if I get stuck this gives me a physical place to turn to to see what I could work on.

This month, I’d like to:

  • Put away all my office shoes. My shoe storage features in the background of most of my Zoom calls, and if I’m not going back to business clothing until 2021, I can fill that space with my more colorful Chuck Taylors instead.
  • Finish my Tour de France KAL shawl. I have knit on it a little each day so far (and KayT, you were right, it is easily memorized).
  • If the dedication ceremony for D.C.’s revamped MLK Library is open to the public, attend it.
  • Sit in on some of the virtual sessions of the National Book Festival.
  • Ride my bike at least once a week now that the weather is cooling off again.
  • Go apple picking/cider doughnut acquiring with Sarah.
  • Take a long weekend off from work (in addition to Labor Day).
  • Call some friends. We’ve all been bad about staying in touch.
  • Come up with an actual way to mark Rudi’s and my 25th anniversary of being together.
  • Declutter a carload’s worth of stuff to Goodwill.

How about you? What’s on tap for your September?
