30x30: Month Six

161: We grew garlic!

Well, there went July. Sorry for the radio silence, folks, summer has a way of getting away from me. I'm sure you know the feeling, right? You get caught up in gardening and going to baseball games and playing with smiling babies and eating rather a lot of seafood.

Let's get to it, shall we? Oh, and for reference, here's my original 30x30 post.

Culinary Projects
Nothing new to report. Sigh.

Professional Projects
I'm teaching a class next week! Woo!

Personal Projects
I cleaned up my google reader, finally! And then, of course, I added a bunch of new blogs to it. Heh. I also purged my cookbook collection. Not just that, Adam and I actually purged our whole bookshelf and sold a bunch of them to a used book seller, woo! We also went through our wedding photos and culled it down from over 1,000 photos to 161 maybes. Next step is to cull it further to 70 or so that we genuinely want in the album and make an appointment with our photographer. Let's hope he remembers us from two years ago, heh.

Also still working on Project 365 and my Read-Thirty-Books project. Book 13 was The Art of Fielding by Chad Hauerbach, Book 14 was Room by Emma Donoghue, Book 15 was The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, Book 16 was Real Food Fermentation by Alex Lewin and Book 17 was The Girl Who Fell from the Sky by Heidi Durrow. Whew. Looks like I'm on the way to finishing my book project ahead of schedule!

House Stuff
I cleaned out under the guest bed! I also cleaned the front hall closet, my closet, the linen closet and the weird side closet in our bedroom AND I rearranged the living room furniture. BOOM. Progress has been made, even if it wasn't on the original list.

Fitnessy Stuff
Can do one chin-up. Scheduling conflicts have come up with my usual October 10k, so I'm contemplating a half marathon.

New goals met this month: 3 
Total goals met so far: 10 

I'll try to resume regular posting now. I missed you guys.
