A New Bucket List

In the book Slow Time by Waverly Fitzgerald, one of the exercises is to make a "Life List". I prefer the name "Bucket List". Things you want to do before you kick the bucket; as in die.

Here's the beginning of my new list.
1. Go to Ireland
2. Be a published writer
3. Live for an extended time in Scotland
4. Own a vintage truck
5. Become a good watercolorist
6. Make a killer Victoria Sponge Cake
7. Make a Bakewell Tart
8. Make Cornish Pasties
9. Read Samuel Pepys Diary
10. Read the Life of Samuel Johnson by Boswell
11. Grind all my own grain-no more white flour
12. Bake bread consistently
13. Add gingerbread to the outside of our house
14. Go to Tuscany
15. Wear the cutest clothes ever

I could add --To save the homeless and find a cure for cancer, but I don't think that'll happen. Some of my things are quite small, but they're things I really want to do. And isn't that the point of a bucket list? What would be on your list?

Your outfit today was really cute! I want to make my bucket list too.
Oh, I'm sorry...#3 is not going to be possible. You aren't allowed to go out of town anymore. :)

I'm with you on numbers 1, 4, 11, and 14. 15 is beyond me, though I love it as a goal.

Good luck!
