It’s time for the 20th 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.
It’s the shortest month of the year! There’s still 4 weeks in February to be productive, though, right? Let’s see how good I did on that front this month…
Here’s this month’s challenge progress:

Reading #86: Read 6 classics I haven’t read before ~ 2/8/2018
These were classics of varying length and genre, but they were all ones that I think are classics and that I had been meaning to read. The easiest to read was Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes (being an 80-page children’s book) and the hardest by far was All Creatures Great and Small (coming in at a whopping 15 hour 45 minute audio length).
Food #43: Try cooking Dim Sum ~ 2/11/2018
I didn’t get in as many recipes in the one day as I had hoped, but we (Sis Wyrm and I) tried recipes for Chinese stuffed peppers and three different types of bao (buns — the BBQ pork steamed bun is probably the best-known dim sum food among non-Chinese Americans). We also made nian gao, a Chinese New Year treat. (The linked recipe is a slightly modified version, but we made the traditional kind.)
Personal #67: Make my desk a useable space ~ 2/19/2018
This has been an ongoing project, and I’m sure I will continue to tweak things as I use my desk again and find out ways I can improve it. Still, it’s great to have a space I can use for writing, and journaling, and generic computer time without taking over the dining table!

And just like that it’s March! (Or nearly.) Hopefully we’ll get some rain next month… it’s been too dry lately and I don’t want to have to go through another drought so soon. At least we got some rain last year, or we’d be drying up and blowing away in the wind by now. It’s just worrisome to look at how little rain we’ve had so far in 2018. Sigh.
I hope your February has been wonderful!
