A fresh beginning....

It is my 41st birthday and my first project in this new year of life is launching a blog!
I don't even know what it will be about...we'll just have to see how it evolves. But since my birthday is at the fore of my mind right now, I thought I would post a special list of indulgent goals for my 42nd year. (Yes, totally inspired by Kyrie) :

1. Start a blog
2. Knit a garment (never got this off the ground)
3. Sew clothing for myself
4. Read 60 novels
5. Hike to a waterfall 
6. Eat more vegetables
7. Finish my flannel quilt
8. Grow a garden with enough to preserve (didn't even get the ground tilled this year!)
9. Make a pumpkin patch
10. Go camping (not once...unbelievable)
11. Find a flattering “uniform” (and purge the ugly stuff)
12. Hoop/Bellydance/do yoga/move!
13. Talk to my brother more
14. Make a steampunk costume (still working on this)
