My mission101 for 2017

Task 17_Project_100 MOVIES (To include completed series)
In order to complete this task, I will need to watch about 10 movies per month, a task I completed for January.

If I had to rec a movie from this first list of 10 it would be Iris, a documentary about Iris Apfel, the 93-year-old, in 2014, style maven who shows that no matter how excentric, if you are true to yourself, and life coopertes just a little, you can lead a very genunine life. And yes, she is still alive at 95 :)

Task 16_Project_50 BOOKS
In order to complete this task, I will need to read about five books per month which, frankly, is daunting but I managed last year so...mayabe. And it is a task I completed for January.

If I had to rec a book from this first list of five, I couldn't. For me, books aren't like movies. They are more personal, more dependant on mood or, in the case of nonfiction, need. Maybe Watership Down which is a re-read. Or the playing-with-words of Norton Juster in Tollbooth. Hard to say :) The red indicates books read for a Book Challenge (which I snagged last year from fansee) within a my Read 50 Books task.

1_Book I've been meaning to read_Charlotte's Web by EB White
2_The 8-Minute Organizer by Regina Leeds
3_Watership Down by Richard Adams
4_Book recommended by spouse or child_The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
5_Focus by Daniel Goleman

Then there's the bits & pieces
I completed Tasks 64 throught 67_Organize Social Media which I posted about here.
          Weirdly, this has actually made a difference in my life.
And I completed Tasks 99 to 100_Organize Jewlery which I posted about here.
          This has just made me happy :D

In order to have a successful 2017 mission, I will need to complete about 10 tasks per month, which I did for January.
          I need to start strong out-the-gate because months will come when I will falter. Always happens and so, it's nice to have a little cushion.

Wow, you are doing so much better than I am. I'm hoping to get a little reading in this weekend, but I sort of doubt it.

I hopeyou are able to get in just a little bit of reading this weekend. It's good for the soul :)

It is, but as we are headed to the City to spend time with The Boy, I don't think there will be much time for reading. :D

I love feeling organized, although life does have a way of disrupting our organization efforts. LOL! Sounds like you are going strong with your plans. Good luck with the future months coming up.

I was surprised that there were only 2 of the movies you listed that I hadn't watched yet... 'Iris' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy'. 'Iris' does sound like my kind of film though, so I'm adding it to my queue. My favorite of the list is 'The Secret Lives of Pets' and of course 'Game of Thrones'. I liked all the others too except for 'The Magnificent Seven'. I was disappointed with this version but probably because the original was so iconic to me. It is one of the few Westerns I've never forgotten from my youth.

Hugs, Grammy

Thank you!

You'll like Iris, I 'm sure. What an interesting woman she is. And honestly, Guardans...is a favorite. We've seen it twice and hope to see the sequal soon. And as for Magnificent Seven, it was on, we watched, the first is the iconic version :)
