47 Things List

In my 47th year (starting July 2, 2013), I’m going to do 47 things. Whether it’s learning something new (L for learn), finishing something on my unending t0-do list (F for finish), general craftiness (M for make) or making a mitzvah (GD for good deed), I’ll document them all here and tally them on July 1, 2014.

    This is a great idea. I might steal it on my next birthday. Except that I`ll have a lot more things to do than you! Good luck with it all!
