Experiment hiatus: the list and YOU
That will not happen with this blog.
I'm writing this more for me than anything else. I feel the need to explain why there has been a several week silence from Kristin's cyberspace, because I need to convince myself that this time will be different.
At any rate, it has been an exhausting and exciting few weeks. We traveled over 1300 miles by car, cycled between sick kids and sick husband, Nick officially finished his first year of graduate school, I took my first trip to Chicago and ended up completing some unexpected short-term consulting work for my former employer. Whew.
A thoughtful and exciting post on feta cheese is in the mix as well as some exciting surprises from some guest bloggers. But in the meantime, a friend had asked me about the list. So I thought I'd share.
When this currently infant blog was in its fetal stage, I was discussing it with some friends and mentioned that I had created a list of 32 things I wanted to learn to do myself. The list. Sara wanted to know what was on it. So I thought I'd share.
The list is getting crinkly and well-loved and sits in a place of honor in the kitchen. It is up to 55, so I won't list everything. Here are a few of the more ridiculous, interesting or random things on my list:
2. Fruit leather
6. Indoor living potpourri
12. Lip gloss
23. Cheddar bunnies
37. Touch-n-feel board books for kids
43. Light bulb
55. Wind turbine for "creating" electricity
So here's my question. What's on your list? What are you most interested in? What have you tried? Please share! I'd love to see what everyone else is thinking and doing.
