My New Years resolution list is more a list of "Stuff I Haven't Finished" amd "Stuff I Want to Do". And that's OK! I know I need to lose weight, I don't need to resolve to do it, I'll just keep plugging away at the gym.
So I've set goals that are more reachable, and fun.
Some of these were my own ideas, and some I borrowed from Granny Miller. Many run along the same lines. =)
In no particular order they are:
1. Learn to make soap. I have some molds, I have some books. I just need to do it.
2. Make laundry soap with homemade soap. Not necessarily my own homemade soap, I have some that I bought and that will work fine. =)
3. Learn to make saurkraut or kimchi. Just ferment something!
4. Learn how to read my Almanac. Seriously, why keep buying it otherwise?
5. Knit socks. Yeah, I need to learn more than just knit and purl.
6. Refinish kerosene heater. It would be so great to use it!
7. Make mozzerella cheese. I bought the stuff, I just need the milk from Bina. =)
8. Make mead. I have some of the equipment, but not the 24lbs of honey. (Yet!)
9. Take a drop-spindle lesson at New Pond Farm. (I just took a spinning class on a wheel.)
10. Finish sewing my apron. Shouldn't be too hard.
11. Learn how to crochet.
12. Tap the maple trees and make maple syrup. Which will involve learning which ones are maple trees, without the leaves to tell me. *sigh* I should have marked them in the summer.
13. Take a yarn dying class at New Pond Farm.
14. Work on starting a fire with my flint and striker.
15. Finish the denim quilt.
16. Learn how to use the pressure cooker. Well, really, just use it.
17. Trim goat hooves the next time you sit for them.
18. Finish something on the beading loom.
19. Make recycled glass into birdbaths.
20. From Granny Miller, learn 10 new recipies. I've made a list, subject to change.

1. Broccoli Cheddar Soup. Already changed to Cream of Broccoli Soup, and I made it once already. Delish !
2. Tapenade I love it so, and I got myself a food processor for Christmas.
3. Tomato Sauce
4. Ketchup
5. Mayo
6. Pasta
7. Guacamole Kind of basic stuff so far... But if I add the things from my list above,
8. Saurkraut or kimchi
9. Mozzerella cheese
10. Mead

There! I'm done! Time to get started.
