It’s time for the 18th update on my 101 in 1001 Challenge! If you haven’t been following along on this journey so far or have any questions about what the challenge is, you can check out this link for details.
Can you believe it’s the end of 2017 already? I can’t. It’s insane how time flows. This year for me was particularly weird. Instead of the whole year flying by, I felt like I was properly able to enjoy spring and summer, but fall and winter have vanished without a trace. Very strange.
Here’s this month’s challenge progress:

Reading #78: Complete a Reading Challenge in 2017 ~ 12/31/2017
The Challenge for this year was to read 10 Cat Mystery Books and to read 75% new books. Well, the Cat Mystery part of the challenge turned out to be harder than I expected, and the 75% new books ended up being easier. There are a handful of books I generally re-read annually, but I didn’t read them this year. (I won’t be reading them next year either, if I stick to my 2018 Reading Challenge.) The Cat Mysteries, though, all tended to have the same tropes and so I didn’t read any one series all in a row the way I had anticipated I would at the start of the year. Interesting how that turned out.
Food #35: get my kitchen knives sharpened or replaced ~ 12/10/2017
I did an at-home sharpening in this case. I’m hoping I did a good enough job so that I don’t have to take them somewhere to have them sharpened. We’ll have to wait and see, though. In any event, what I did counts for this challenge item.

Get ready for 2018! If you’re partying tonight, please do so safely!
Best wishes to you and yours for a very Happy New Year.
