The fact that I have recently been MIA is not due to my crafting laziness. I promise!!! Nor, is it the fact that I've gotten take out almost every day for the past 3 weeks. Well, I have, but the reason is far greater than my unwillingness to get near a stove. My current home remodel has taken up ALL of my time (that, and this little thing called work) so I have not been able to do/blog ANYTHING. I have, however, been daydreaming of things I want to do once I've set fire to all of my paint brushes and am finally moved in and settled to the new place. So here they are, some fun things I want to do this Fall, in no particular order...
- Make my own Ravioli from scratch and learn how to make homemade Pierogies (this will require some assistance from my delightful, little, Polish friend Michelle :)... I know this isn't a typical "Fall" activity but I can finally turn my stove/oven on without turning my house into a sweat lodge, so I say it counts.
- Knit a new winter scarf. I've been learning to knit and feel like it's time to up my game. My dog has enough blankets.
- Enjoy some hot Apple Cider Donuts while sitting in my yard (weather must cooperate, not too cold, not too warm.. looking for the perfect brisk day... let's make it happen Skilling).
- Have a Ghost Adventures viewing party since the new season is kicking off on Friday, September 23. Nothing gets me in the Halloween mood quite like Zack Bagans and his amazing hair gel and graphic tees. If you've never seen the show before, then I urge you to tune in to check it out (with an open mind, of course). I promise you wont be disappointed (fyi: you might find yourself making side comments throughout the whole episode, ala Mystery Science Theater, but that's where half the fun lies).
- Get a side job so I can purchase this ultimate Fall sweater. I love me some "sweater weather" and this one just looks so incredibly cozy. But, I can be practical and order this comfy cableknit which is more in my price range.
- Drink some Hofbrau Oktoberfest from the one liter stein that I carted back from Munich after college. Due to its extreme weight and the lengthy distance I carried it, it has been decided that this mug really needs to see more action.
- Finally, finally, finally make my dog a Halloween costume. I have no idea what he will be yet, but this year, I am making sure it happens.
I feel like 7 is a random number to end on but I ran out of ideas... if I come up with anymore good ones (during a fit of spacing out at work) I will make sure to add them to the list! Ohh man, I am so ready for the Fall.
