My To Do List

Here's a bit of Background story for the To Do List below.
My friend Laura wanted to know why I couldn't publish a blog. And I told her I didn't want to stop and tell everyone what I was doing because it would take the time away from what I was doing.... so I told her what I was doing in a huge list (posted below) and then she said - well you could have posted it on your Blog - and everyone could know what you're doing. So Laura - this is for you my dear - and I can cross #17 off my list!

My list of Projects
(that are in various stages of completion)

1. Clean Apt! Take all my old crap to goodwill (got a lot done on Sat and made head way with this - but still far from completion!)
2.Do my NSS convention scrapbook (its huge and I have all the stuff - I just haven't touched it yet.)
3. Build an earthen oven in Paul's back yard (and cook in it!) See Handy Projects under "Inspirations" links
3. Help Paul finish his kitchen and two bathrooms - so far we've stripped all the walpaper and painted the kitchen, painted one of the bathrooms walls - still have to paint both and refinish all the cabinets in the kitchen and tile the back-splash for the sink and stove. (this is the main project right now)
4. Make home-made pasta ( I got my grandmothers pasta maker and an awesome book on pasta-making from my mom and Dad for Christmas)
5. Make bread in the earthen oven.
6. I have ideas for 3-4 drawings/sketches I need to draw for the Grotto Newsletter/myself. Sketch this one out – maybe even airbrush it?
7. Dolls for Bryce, Jillian and Daniel (have found some WAY cool fabrics for these and now need to start sketching them out!!) This will take a fair amount of time.....
8. Design Funky skirt or Quilt from my old - worn out - memory filled clothes that I cleaned out of my closet (that way I don't feel bad for tossing them in the trash/Goodwill) Use cargo pants pockets, mickey Shorts
9.Do a couple Travel Bugs/Hide a couple more geocaches
10. Finish reading "Alice Through the looking Glass" "Eldest" have started both…
11. Learn how to translate basic hieroglyphics - bought an awesome book on this at the Tut exhibit - made flash cards - but I need to study them and do the quizzes to really get somewhere!
12. (Throwing myself down on my bed dramaticlly and rolling around) I've got to get organized!!!
13. Join writers group in town to write short stories/poetry/etc.
14. Do my taxes. (bleugh!)
15. Start frogging (climbing) again/ Try kickboxing again /Hike!
16. Draw up the Sugar Tree Pit Map – submit to ACS.
17. Then - finally - Do Blog/Website and tell everyone about all my crazy ideas bouncing around in my head!! and Fun things I'm doing!!
18. Create a fun mellow CD for my friends – or another “Just Listen” and do a Christmas CD mix – way ahead of time for next Christmas – or even a DVD.. since I now have the capability to do that!
Solsbury Hill, Can’t Take it In, Friends (White Stripes)
19. Cover/personalize presents I bought for next Christmas. (I know - this is insanely early - but I was struck with inspiration - bought a whole bunch on Saturday - and can work on them throughout the year)
20. Design a couple stamps/Even a seal for “brina Bat” for Cards I make, Caches that I find, and CD covers I do
a. “Brina Bat Productions” b. Tiny Bat with Brina Bat inside c. A Brina Bat Seal
21. Try making Glass beads again
