Another 34 things -- A week of lists

I already wrote about 34 things that bring me joy. Those were in honor of my birthday. And, since we had to put our dog to rest that same week, my celebratory plans just didn't seem to work out.

Since I had every intention of writing another 34 things -- this list being about what I hope to DO in this next year -- this is a great week to do it. I'm going to write lists all week.

So, here goes:

1. Finish my novel.

2. Drop 10 pounds.

3. Buy a sewing machine.

4. Learn to sew (again).

5. Make Jadyn and Liana bean bags to toss (as a starter project).

6. Make Jadyn and Liana a crayon apron.

7. Make (or buy) myself an apron.

8. Rejuvenate my kitchen with all new, practical and eco-friendly gear.

9. Take the girls here.

10. And, here.

11. Make another Summer To-Do List.

12. Write an e-book.

13. Publish an e-zine.


15. Practice yoga outside.

16. Create a meditation space (in next home).

17. Vote for a woman president.

18. Start a scrapbook for my daughters about America's first woman president.

19. Become a better wife.

20. Pay off our debt.

21. Start turning our next house into an Eco-conscious home.

22. Write more essays. For real.

23. Meet up with some of my blogging sisters.

24. Let go of the baggage I've been carrying for years.

25. Take a weekend to just write -- somewhere out of the house. Like the beach, perhaps?

26. Attend a writer's conference.

27. Start seriously shopping more locally for more than just fruits and vegetables.

28. Pull Jadyn and Liana around on a float in a pool.

29. Finally travel to Georgia to see my mom and their house.

30. Sell or giveaway more books. I am over my fascination of hanging on to great things.

31. Create a friendship circle.

32. Live more.

33. Laugh more.

34. Write more.

I love this list! I'd be so excited if somehow I were one of the bloggers you met this year. :)

I found my way here from Candace's blog. I like your list. Do you think bean bags is a good beginner project? I got a sewing machine a couple of years ago for Mother's Day and have been too chicken to try and figure out how to use it. Maybe I should give some bean bags a try. :)
