Here are the updated lists:.
Things I want to do
Knit something more complicated than "cast-on, knit, knit, knit, cast-off"I have managed some some nice scarfs with color work, and a bit of lace, and some things that look much more impressive than they are hard to knit so I'm declaring this a success. I have a long way to go in my knit and crochet skills and my next goal will be to make a sweater (not a baby sweater as I can do that in my sleep but a sweater for me!)
- learn finance (again) Actually this is my father's goal for me and I am totally hopeless at this.
Cook new and interesting thingsI do this in bits and spurts but I have expanded our menu selections (not always for the best!) and I have a wonderful bunch of new soup recipes to try
- Practice piano
- Photography class (again)
Yoga classesI just wish the gym had more yoga classes but I think that the pilates and other stretch classes should count toward this. I particularly like the Sunday morning yoga instructor and just wish I could go to that class more often. It's at the same time as my dad's Sunday brunch time at my house so unless he's out of town I always miss it :-(
- Frame sailing picture I do have the frame catalog for these two items but I haven't adjusted myself to how expensive framing is. Even the do-it-yourself frames are expensive and the last thing I framed took me forever and I think I wore out the patience of the nice people at the frame workshop. These are two huge and odd shaped pictures so I don't even want to show my face at the workshop with these projects.
- Frame Sedona poster
- Wash windows - after yellow pollen season - And I can't cross this off because they got washed but they need it again!
Paint bedroomDone! and a lovely shade of tan (actually called Mushroom Bisque) with (not yet finished) white trim. The bedroom is getting complete do-over. Charlie made a built-in cabinet under the bay window for some extra storage so I could get rid of a dresser that was crowding the room. Next on the to-do list is to finish the trim paint, put up crown mouldings, and hang the curtains! So in crossing off one thing I've added three more!
