33 things before 33

There’s a blog I read in which I noticed this little “tradition” last year, and whole-heartedly stole it, because I think it’s great. I did it last year. Here’s this year’s list:

33 things to do before I turn 33
1 ) finish remodeling the Trail house and sell it.
2 ) add a Barnevelder and a Welsummer to my backyard flock.
3 ) evening walks with the dog.
4 ) find a new house, with a real yard, and fix it up. (Hmmm… maybe next year…)
5 ) decide where to live long-term (Well, we’ve narrowed the list a little)
6 ) pursue the business full time.
7 ) run at least two 10ks, and one half or full marathon (possibly the Gorge Marathon)
8 ) river trips
9 ) camping
10 ) make huckleberry pies
11 ) start some proper square-foot garden beds

  1. What is the unbook club? 🙂

      The unbook club has only really happened once. I’m hoping we can start making it a monthly thing once we get done selling our house. Basically everybody comes over with books they are finished reading and would recommend that other people read, I make a bunch of food, and we trade. It’s good fun. 🙂
