Tasks for the Week

April 11, 2010
  • Find some healthy birch bark on a dead tree or log to create a knife handle.
  • Look for a shed antler from a buck for the same thing.
  • Get a coal from the bowdrill.  I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, but I think it’s the wood.  Therefore, this one is basically Find suitable wood for a bowdrill and/or get better at identifying tree species when they are dead.
  • Have human contact more than once in seven days; initiate said human contact if necessary.
  • Read some.  When weather permits, however, prefer outdoor activity to indoor.  Consider reading outside—in a tree, maybe.  That sounds fun, right?
  • Stay off of Facebook unless I receive a notification via email.  No other Facebook events are worth knowing about right away.
  • Stay off of the computer for the most part.  Reading for a while after I get up is OK, as is doing something brain-numbing before going to sleep.  Middle-of-the-day computer use is excessively extravagant behavior.
  • Likewise: spend zero dollars this week.  I spent too much last week and therefore risk becoming a model of extreme excess(!).
  • Eat something wild.  I know that I will be able to find both cattails and dandelions, so I should have no excuses.  Start looking for other foods—get better at identifying them so I can find them as they come into season.

One day at a time.  I can’t be freaking out about the fall already.
