The 201 Day Update: Countdown to 50 – 101 Things in 1001 Days, Version 5

201 days gone already. How did that happen?

I have plans in place to complete several more items in the next few weeks, assuming my knee cooperates. I really need to step up the cooking and the reading, and I have three completed items that I have not yet written up. My knee injury really put a dent into the cooking and a few other things that should have been done by now (like a doctor appointment or two). But overall, I’m pretty pleased with the current status.
