38259 Sorry to see you go Deb. It has been quiet around here of late.

Hope everything is okay Zakiya and Meghan. I know with my study it really limits the time I have to read.

38259 Its such a busy time right now so I think we should extend the challenge period and start again in Feb when it quietens down.

Its up to you and Meghan though.

38259 LOL I know. Nan used to iron everything including sheets, bath towels, tea towels. lol

I have way too much other things to do than to iron that much.

38259 I remember my mum telling me when she married my dad, he complained as his mum used to iron his underpants and my mum refused to. lol

38259 I only iron when clothes need it (uniforms or going out clothes.)

All others get hung up straight away and thankfully the creases fall out. lol

38259 I did get my priorities right last night and read instead of watched TV.

Masterchef Australia has finished so instead of watching the show that replaced it, I got reading.

38259 I love all the tasks this time, must get myself off the computer more so I can read more. lol

Will be tracking down his other books now.

38259 Thanks. If we go with a fall theme, maybe short words like FALL, LEAF.

Or we could do the Fall months which for us Southern Hemisphere readers is March, April May (short task numbers) and for the Northern Hemisphere readers is September, October, November (longer task numbers.)
