I want to...

Bake my own bread.
Plant a fall garden.
Learn how to make cheese.
Make my own beauty aides.
Learn to make yogurt.
Find something fabulous at the thrift shop.
Watch Anne of Green Gables.
Take a walk with my camera.
Can something delicious.
Learn to use my dehydrator.
Make money doing something creative.
Learn about natural healing.
Learn more about nutrition.
Learn to bake scones...blueberry/chocolate/lavender scones to be exact.
Get back into my bible.
Make a scrap quilt.
And a pathwork quilt.
And a rag rug.
And a penny rug.
Keep bees.
And maybe a few goats.
Live in the mountains.

There's more...but that's all I can think of at the moment.

What do you want to do? Do tell...I'll be reading your comments while in bed as I seem to have caught myself the flu!

We share many of the same aspirations! Except I want to make a wool rug and I don't really know what a penny rug is. I want to learn to spin wool. I want to remember how to knit. How to make my silly skills worthwhile. I want to play the piano like I used to. To develop my sewing skills. To finish this quilt for my sister! To remember to make the side dishes for dinner. I want a milk cow and chickens. To finish fixing up the old sheep camp. To build my cabin. To build a play house for the kids. Draw out my dream garden/homestead I need to figure out how to do all the things I want to.
I'll stop there because I could go on and on. Fun post. Maybe I'll make an official list.

I want to do things like brew my own beer and take an epic road trip. Have a job that I love so much I can't wait to work(I hear it happens). Sorry to hear about your flue, hope you feel better soon.

Boo, that you've got the flu - there's no fun in that. Your list makes me smile - many are my "I want tos" too - thankfully a lot of them are within reach.

Keep warm and recuperate. :) Best wishes, Conny

I'd like to learn how to make bobbin lace. Why? I haven't a clue.

Tried the "your own yogurt" thing. Not worth the effort.

I do know how to shingle a roof but that's a skill I've used only once. But if you want, you can add it to your list!

I'd like to graft a branch onto a fruit tree. To see if I could make it grow.

ahhh, ha, ha. everything on your list!!!

hope you get there eventually!

Mari said...

What a great list! Is this your bucket list?
I haven't done one, but you inspire me to.

We have the same spirit...although I don't think I'm as aspiring as you to do a few things on your list. (maybe when I was younger!)

Today...I want Michelle to come spend the day with me at the beach! Oh what fun we'd have...that is if you were feeling better. Poor thing. I'll get some seashells for you baby doll!

Take care of yourself. Rest.

Love ya.

Whitestone-I used to think the same thing about the yogurt-seems like even the simple instructions were too involved. I found a simple process though and to me it's TOTALLY worth it. I only heat the milk (my raw goat milk) to about 86*, add starter culture (store bought yogurt with live cultures) and put it in incubator for 8 hours. My SIL bought me one, but w/o it, you can just place in oven with light on, or something similar.

Michelle-I have a list on my blog sidebar of what I want to accomplish this year. Being as it's the last quarter of the year, I better take a good look at it and see what's left! Our lists are similar, but you are far more crafty than I. Hope you feel better soon! Let me know if you want a few pointers on cheesemaking (I've made a few, but nothing that needs aging yet).
