A Living List

Hello my almond butter loving friends. If you're new to HEAB, you may like to subscribe to my RSS feed or receive my posts via email. Thanks for reading!

Not long ago, I read a thread about Live Lists in the Goddess Circle, not a list of stuff to do before you die, but a list of stuff to do while you’re ALIVE. It got me thinking about a list of my own. Wanna hear it?

  • Get certified to teach pre-natal yoga here.  I practiced yoga throughout my pregnancy, and I truly believe it helped prepare my body for labor and delivery.  I would love to be able to give the gift of yoga to other mamas-to-be.

That’s me, nine months preggo in Dancer’s Pose.

  • Milk a cow and churn my own butter.  Something I’ve always wanted to do. Weird?  Perhaps.
  • Paint more watercolors.  I don’t know much about painting, but I love playing around with my watercolor set.  So fun!

Using this as a guide, I recently painted the above card for a special friend

  • Take a photography and photo editing class.
  • Visit China, Mongolia, Thailand, Vietnam – This one is going to take a while.
  • Go mountain trekking in Nepal – Another one that might take a while, but I will drink tea with Sherpas after many miles of trekking someday.
  • Make this tent & camp out overnight with Summer in our backyard.
  • Refinish a piece of furniture and fall in love with it – I’m thinking something along the lines of this.
  • Shop more often at flea markets/consignment shops and find amazing pieces of furniture that simply need a little love…see above.
  • Buy a house in the mountains and spend the days playing with the fam. while staring at our inexpensive, but beautifully refinished furniture. 😉
  • Buy some funky Chuck Taylors and wear them without socks. I have never owned a pair. Sad, no?
  • Get a sewing machine and learn to sew so I can make a skirt like this.
  • Rest the entire upper half of my body on the floor in wide-legged seated forward fold. I aspire to this…

It will happen.  Just gotta loosen up my hamstrings a bit.

What’s on your list?
