Bucket List

Haha, okay, this is a list of things I want to do before I “kick the bucket.” Some of them I hope to do LONG before I die. So here they are, in no particular order:

  • make homemade caramel sauce and caramel candies
  • (related to above) learn not to fear the candy thermometer and boiling sugar
  • bake yeast bread other than Vanessa’s dinner rolls Check! Icelandic Brown Bread and soon Old Order Amish Bread will join the ranks. I no longer fear yeast breads – I just need time for them!
  • be able to make the 5 mile hike up to Lake Awosting (and back) in one day – without dying
  • learn to sail
  • keep a kitchen garden and eat the produce
  • cook at least one meal at a soup kitchen (okay, already did this one kind of in middle school, but this time I want to be the cook in charge and spend the whole day cooking really good food for people)
  • learn to split wood
  • learn to weld
  • visit Normandy, France
  • visit Iceland
  • learn to sew my own (cute!) clothes
  • finish writing a book and maybe try and get it published
  • get my Master’s Degree (halfway there!)
  • make my own wedding cake(s)
  • learn to milk a cow
  • learn to make butter/cream cheese/farmer cheese from said cow’s milk
  • own land
  • learn to play the guitar well
  • home-record some music (asked for a USB mic for xmas!) Got one song done so far! And got that USB mic.
  • kill and butcher and roast a chicken
  • get something published and/or recorded
  • teach a class (oh wait – already did this – taught beginning Norwegian… 😀 )
  • cook a whole meal over an open fire
  • grow all my favorite flowers: double peonies, lily of the valley, bleeding heart, tulips, bush roses, lilacs (a bush, I know)
  • plant an apple tree sapling and stick around long enough to get apples off of it

Okay, I’ll add and cross off periodically. What’s on your bucket list?
