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…
