The First 41 Update

I have a list of 41 things to do during my 41st year. Here is what I have done thus far:

9. Take care of at least one outstanding house project (in progress). We removed the janky old medicine cabinet from the bathroom, painted the wall behind it and need only to get hooks to hang the new mirror.

17. Knit at least two sweaters (does it count that I have one cast on already?) (in progress)
I actually ripped out the one that I had cast on (Liesl) but I am happily knitting on the Garter Yoke Cardigan. Well, at least semi-happily. I have it to get back off the string and on the needles since I just tried it on.

20. Ride a Ferris Wheel (done!)
At Disneyland last month.

21. Skate (ice, roller, or both)
Ice! Proof is above. It didn't last long, however. It was Kidlet's first time and once she fell, unstoppable sobbing ensued and we were done for the day.

23. Find the perfect cake recipe (in progress)
I made this cake for New Year's and it was mighty fine. I just need to get the frosting-to-cake ratio correct and I think I'm golden.

30. Watch New Orleans win the Superbowl (heh heh)
Ummm, it really could happen? I swear the reason they've come this far is because I have not watched a single game this season. As soon as I start checking the scores on the web while they are playing, they start losing. I'm afraid to watch, but I will.

I mean, really now, do you think it's safe to watch? Really? I'd hate for you to cause widespread disappointment in the Who Dat Nation . You should know, though, your secret is safe with me! Geaux Saints!

Check out Bakerella for the perfect cake recipe or Martha Stewart's Italien Wedding Cake recipe is fantastic too.

I would love to make a list but I am so hard on myself when I don't actually fulfill it!!!
