On the lookout yesterday for the perfect map for the #1 bucket list idea and found it! Wanted something a little fun, colorful and easy to work with and this is what I discovered.
One day mine may look this gorgeous...I hope. I have followed videos, printed instructions, and photos and still it just turns out like a brick. The smell that fills the house is amazing, but that is about as far as it goes. There will be no buying of fancy mixers or bread makers, just my two hands and a bowl. With a little practice and determination I will be baking my own bread on day.
Off to put on some coffee and get ready to be a handyman around the house hanging both window treatments and blinds. Anything to keep the heat out more and energy costs down these days. Started hanging some of our laundry out to dry, using up that summer sun. Things get a little crispy feeling, but hey it is free, saves energy and environmentally friendly...just wish my clothes could be hung up in this backyard.
Guess I know what one of my next bucket list items will be. Until then, any place will do and just happy to work with anything we are lucky enough to have.
P.S. Came across a website via Pinterest, of course, when I found this photo of Oregon. The site is all about Portland!
