Hope you all are staying safe and having fun at home! Since we started homeschooling Olive a little last fall, and we are naturally homebodies, things have honestly not looked very different over here. I am grateful for the pretty weather we've had lately and a grassy backyard to play in. This morning I put together a Quarantine Bucket List! Calling it a bucket list and not a to-do list makes it sound more fun, don't you think? Here is what I want I have planned...

Clean out my closet.
My master closet needs some major TLC! The last time I tried to clean it out I ended up with a 3 day allergy attack. I'm working up the courage to get back in there and figure out some better storage solutions. 

Write a book. 
I actually did this with Olive last year and it was a fun activity that resulted in the most precious little story about a girl with an apple tree baking an apple cake to share with her friends. It is something that I will cherish forever! I'd like to help her write another story now that she's a little bigger. 

Paint something.
Itching to get my paints out. Creativity comes in waves for me. I can feel it building up inside and I need to sit down and paint for a few days and let it all out. I have a stack of watercolors from my last painting spree that I either need to frame or sell. Or both! Should I start a little shop here on my blog? 

Bake gluten free sourdough. 
Eek. This is something I've wanted to do for a while but it's a little intimidating to me! I'm going to follow the recipe in Aran Goyoaga's book for making a sourdough starter. Wouldn't it be so fun to have fresh baked gluten free bread every week? Yum. 

Build a birdhouse. 
We crossed this one off last weekend! Isaac and I helped the girls build two bluebird houses to hang in the backyard. Cannot wait to sit on our new deck and watch all the bluebirds come to our yard. Kind of loved working with wood and want to try my hand at woodworking now! What should I make next?

Plant something.
Now that the deck is pretty much done I want to plant flowers around it everywhere and fill my window box too! I basically want to live in a flower garden. I hinted to Isaac that I would love a fig tree for Mother's Day and I'm hoping we have enough sun to put in a butterfly bush too! Wondering if I'm up for roses if I should stick to hydrangeas and herbs...

What have you been up to lately? I would love to hear! Sending hugs to each of you until we can be face to face again! xx
