Happy 250 (ish)!

You may remember that in practically another time and place I wrote about reaching 200 posts and also included what I hoped to accomplish in the time it would take me to write  201 to 300.   Here I am many years later writing #255.  Sadly life has a way of doing it’s own thing and my writing became debilitated as a result.   I’m getting back into the grove, moving on  and attempting to cultivate the inner me again so I thought I would revisit that list and update not only my readers but myself in many respects.

– Redecorate the bedroom to something that doesn’t have that, contractor poorly picked out the colors charm; Yes I made this happen, and it’s delightfully grey and fluffy, filled with texture and a few accents pieces in orange and blue.   Although I still need one more something something to go over the bed I consider it accomplished.  Here is the board I used for inspiration.

– try dying fabric, perhaps silk or linen; When did I want to do this?  *shrug*

– have someone over for tapas; as a family Tim and I make a meal of tapas pretty often, just this past week in fact, so I’m sure we have had someone over at some point.

– take an online cooking class; Yea never really made this happen, I feel like I still have an interest.  Perhaps I’ll put it on my Christmas list.

– return to Disney; We had a plan in place but sadly we had to cancel.

– return to the Phipps; Many many many times, it has to be one of the most captivating places I have ever visited.  Search my blog if you don’t believe me.

– get a degree in astrophysics; No comment

– become a Dr Who fan, it looks like fun; I did and it is.  Seriously sitting here right now in one of my favorite weeping angel shirts.  Can’t wait to meet the new Dr!

– finish a quilt for me; Done, I have a sweet little lap quilt and started cutting another one that I never finished.  That might be a good goal, finish a second quilt.

– get better at baking cakes; Lets just say I tried and leave it at that.

– reach 300 blog posts; getting there!

– learn to use the grill smoker; meh

– trellis a rose, and hopefully not kill it; Oooo yes I still want to do this but it’s going to need to wait till the spring.

– make something out of old keys, or new keys that look like old keys; Oh I did this, I wonder if I wasn’t stuffing the pipeline a bit with this one.  Anyway here is the post (with terrible photos?) where I made ornaments for my tree.

– run a 5K; I should just delete this one……

– start writing a cookbook with my mom; I forgot about this oh we still need to do this!  We have recently unearthed some of my Grandmother’s old recipes they would be a perfect platform.

– crochet something cool; ugh I’m hanging this one up; forget this mess, no seriously forget I even said anything.
