40

This is 40. A milestone birthday, I feel.

 

Here are some things I haven’t gotten to yet as personal goals in life but must, sometime in the next 40 or so…

 

Raise chickens

 

Learn how to spin fiber

 

Get a tattoo

 

Dye my hair pink

 

Learn how to 4-season garden

 

grow and put up most of our fruit & vegetable foods for a year

 

Sell my produce

 

Write something worth reading

 

Learn how to cook Indian food

 

Learn how to sew clothing in a way that doesn’t look so amateurish

 

Take a photography class

 

Learn how to identify trees and wild and roadside plants

 

Hmmm, well, I guess that’s enough to be getting along with.  I can barely keep up with life right now but maybe someday there’ll be some opportunities…
