I Wanna Do That!!

Happy Wednesday!!! As you know, Bronwyn Green and I have been tandem blogging on Wednesdays. This week, I want to say welcome to Leigh Jones, who is going to join us on our Wednesday bloggin' party. :-)

This week we decided to blog on three things we'd like to learn how to do. Number one on my list, at the moment is....

Basic Home Repairs 
I have no desire to take care of everything in the house, but to be able to deal with those those things that come up every so often. Or in my case, every single stinking time my husband goes out of town. He's currently out of the country, and I ended up with water all of the laundry room floor. The washer is losing water, and I cannot for the life of me figure out where it's coming from. And, lets' be honest, even if I did, I'd be clueless as to how to fix it. So I'd like to know how to deal with the basic household repairs--leaky faucets and the like--and not have to call the hubby or my dad to get over-the-phone instructions to fix something. (And major props to them for being awesome and patient with me when I do call on them for something!)

Learn to Knit Something OTHER Than a Rectangle!

I can knit a few basic things--a scarf, a blanket, a shawl (as long as it's rectangular, mind you!), but I would love to be able to knit something more complex, and let's face it, much more awesome. I see pics and patterns for things to knit and yearn to be able to do it. Like these:

Learn to Cook Healthy but GOOD Food
I actually really enjoy cooking, and I'm not too shabby at it. However, I'm trying to be healthier and lose some weight. I'm not so good at the cooking light thing. Most of the things I'm good at cooking require lots of butter, cream, sugar...and pretty much anything else that I (and my family!) should only eat in moderation. Now, I've attempted some healthier cooking and I didn't completely fail (though there were some failures in there, let me tell you!), but I don't want to just eat the basic baked/grilled chicken or fish, grilled or sauteed veggies, salads up the wazoo... I'd love to learn to cook a variety of healthy, delicious food. Because, seriously, it needs to taste GOOD. And the healthier I eat, the more wine I can indulge with later, right? ;-)

And that's it from me. I'm sure I could come up with more things I'd like to learn, but honestly, I tried to come up with three things I had a CHANCE of learning in the near future. Realistic goals and all that. 

What are some things you'd like to learn to do? 

Make sure you go and check out Bron's Post and Leigh's Post and see what THEY want to learn how to do. :) 



  1. I like the equation Healthy Cooking = More Wine. That is my kinda math! Household repairs is a good one. I usually fix things with butter knives...

    1. My kinda math, and using butter knives, that is currently my level of home repair. :)

  2. I love the idea of learning to knit something other than a rectangle. I've just started learning to knit myself, but I already know I would like to be able to make socks and maybe hats.
