Updating the mission_FEBRUARY

My mission101 for 2017

no titleTask 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 February
The first three are a mission101_task #77_Watch Captain America trilogy. Why, I'm not really sure, a recommendation from a friend perhaps but Aaron and I have now decided to watch most, if not all, of the other movies in this Marvel universe. I don't even remember how many others :)
11_Captain America: The First Avengers_2011_Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Hugo Weaving
12_Captain America: The Winter Soldier_2014_Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan
13_Captain America: Civil War_2016_Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Robert Downey Jr.
The next is an excellent movie even if I'm not entirely sure what was going on. Maybe I need the book :)
13_Arrival_2016_Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker
The six last films I found on a list of like the Best Fifteen Art Films from this decade, some of which we had already seen, a couple of which looked not interesting. Each of these is terrific. And if you want to know more about any of them just ask.

16_Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang_2016_Biography/Documentary_Cai Guo-Qiang

no titleTask 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...maybe. And it is a task I completed for February.
Bookclub recommendation: I had read this already and was glad to read it again
6_Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
The first four of a seven book series which will be finished up in March!!
7_Prelude to Foundation by Isaac Asimov
8_Forward to Foundation by Isaac Asimov
9_Foundation by Isaac Asimov
10_Foundation and Empire by Isaac Asimov

I fought this stupid drawing for three months, which I never do.  Now on to something new :)
19_Two Month DRAWING YAY!!!
We repainted the interior of our house last year, from sage-y greens to grays and now the dining room chair seats, which were jewel tones and are now black, match.
59 to 61_Recover Dining room chair seat-covers
I receive catalogs. Aaron & I decided which pics represent how I should look, in an ideal world of endless money. I cut those out. I tape them in a binder organized by category. Old School. And VOILA!!
68_Create My Fashion Book
This is a project I started before Aaron was born wherein I write to him about our lives, the good, the bad, the indifferent. The general --went to car show last weekend-- to the specific --tonight for dinner, we had..... In it I also copy and paste my Livejournal entries. At the end of each year, I go through the entire document, usually around 40 or 50 pages @ 10pt. Aerial, and edit it mostly for spelling. And so, 2016 is done as done.
