I haven’t seen this movie yet (don’t know if I will, because you know I only like happy endings) but the Apron Queen has challenged me to think about my personal “Bucket List”~ you know, the things you want to do before it’s your time to meet our Maker.
I’ve not led an adventurous life~ far from it actually, due mostly to my natural inclinations toward safety & comfort~ but I have been blessed with opportunities to experience some of what this wide, wonderful world has to offer & that has whetted my appetite for new experiences.
After careful consideration & endless revision, here is my list (subject to change & update at the whim of the Gardener):
C Own my own home
C Finish my Bachelor’s Degree
C Buy a brand new, straight from the factory car, just the way I want it
C Learn to speak basic Italian
C Play the mandolin
C Paint watercolors landscapes
C Sing torch songs in front of an audience
C Take a cruise to Alaska
C Travel across Canada by train
C Spend a month in Scotland & the Isles
C Take a walking tour of English gardens
C Stay overnight in a castle
C Join in a sing along at an Irish pub (preferably in Ireland)
C Travel to New Zealand
C Take a cooking school vacation in the Umbria region of Italy
C Kiss my husband at the top of the Eiffel Tower
C See the Pyramids
C Wear a size 12 (or smaller) again
C Have a tummy tuck- I want to see my toes again
C See my children get married
C Watch at least one child or grandchild graduate from college
C Hold my great grandchild
Hmm, from the look of things, my ambitions will keep me from ever being in #1; since I will invariably add to the list as I manage to check things off, let’s just hope I am granted enough time (not mention energy & financial resources) to work my way through the inventory.
So, tell me, what is on your list?
