I issue a challenge to myself

Today, what time I had for crochet was put to use making more cookies for the cookieghan and at some point, I issued a challenge to myself and as part of that I made one cherry wink:

and three iced oatmeal cookies:

I had wanted to get an updated cookie bar graph photo. At the time of the last cookie bar graph, I had completed 77 of the 169 cookies needed for this project (here is how it looked then):

but a storm was moving in and by 5:30, the skies were very overcast and the late afternoon light was obscured by an increasing number of dark, gray clouds.

Before the rain finally began to fall, however, I did manage to get this shot of the six most recently completed cookies arranged in a pyramid:

I want to make sure I get the most out of this summer, so my goal for what remains of the month of June is to finish all of the cookies for the cookieghan, and then use the first week of July to get them assembled.

While I am looking forward to what remains of the summer, I know that it will pass far too quickly, and come September, I will look back and wonder where it went.
