35 before 35

A few years back a friend made a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days. It sounded neat but a bit overwhelming.

When I stumbled upon Yes and Yes' blog today and saw her 31 things do do before turning 31 I was intrigued. It seemed much more manageable. Since I am past 31 and my next birthday is just nine months away, I decided to go with a different target. I decided to come up with my own list of the 35 things I would like to do before turning 35 in September 2011.

Hopefully my feelings of accomplishment will override my horror of being closer to 50 than 19.

My list is a work in progress because I would really like the 35 things I choose to be meaningful and attainable. So here goes!

1. Learn how to sew. Start with making an advent garland for each of the kiddos.

2. Make my own Christmas wreaths. Definitely an evergreen wreath but these too:

3. Finish my response to Michael Pollan's Omnivore's Dilemma.
4. Actually complete a body cleanse.

5. Travel to Europe, the Provence region of France in particular.

6. Visit the site of the World Trade Center attack in New York City.

7. Purchase new filters for our reverse osmosis system.

8. Organize my spice rack in a more sustainable way.

9. Construct a boot rack near my basement door so we are not always swimming in shoes, boots, slippers, and flip flops.
