Time for the first update on the “18 activities on my spring bucket list”. And guess what? I haven’t been home enough to get anything done! Not much here to report, girls. But isn’t my graphic pretty?
Of all the series I participate in, the bucket list posts have been my baby. Kind of my pet project. And here I am, ‘leading’ the way or heading off this series with nothing to share. That’s why this post is going live a little later than the posts of some of the other gals joining the link-up today. Because I have high hopes that we can do something, something, something on my list real quick so I can write about it here.
Let’s review those 18 activities, shall we?
2018 Spring Bucket List
Can you say, ‘ah-oh!’? With one month down, and not much progress made, I have my work cut out for me.
Let’s not panic quite yet. There are two more months before the first day of summer, and the reveal of that season’s list. Which could look real familiar if I don’t get busy here.
Crafty Like a Fox
Yeah, not so much, yet. Yet. Did paint my cactus rock garden for a Pinterventures pinspiration pinspired (how many ways can I say it?) “DIM: Did It Myself” post, here.
Sketch and use watercolor pencils. Pending.
Finish painting at Hobby Lobby. Pending.
Spring cleaning. I started! Did the upstairs guest bedroom and the linen closet. Purged my closet, too. But have to be home to get this project finished. How ’bout these empty hangers? Huh, huh? And then I cleaned the guest bedroom master with baking soda, essential oil and the vacuum. Probably mostly the vacuum.
Clean carpets. Pending. Have to finish spring cleaning first. See above.
Yard sale. Pending. Had set our alarm to get up and have one today. Which is part of why this post is late. But we turned off the alarm and went back to bed. Will donate everything tomorrow we planned to sell today.
Let’s Get Physical
Hike and picnic. Pending. My favorite hike and picnicking partner has just returned home from 6 weeks overseas. Yes, without me.
Take a barre class. Pending. Waiting for broken foot to heal. I think it is about as good as it is going to get.
Begin swimming 3X a week. Pending. Pool water is up to 70*. See me in a couple more weeks.
Writing on the Wall
Finish writing the first half of my book (or five chapters), whichever comes first. Pending.
Create a warm weather series for my blog. Not sure why I added ‘warm weather’ because the series I created could be all weather. And hopefully will be. “Stepping Outside My Comfort Zone”. Check it out, here.
Write 3 lessons for our Teachers Pay Teachers store. Pending. Working on a lesson about the elements of drama now.
Food for the Heart
Take the convertible out for a date hop night. Pending. Good thing, huh? PC might not like it if this activity was marked ‘done’.
Cheer PC on at his baseball games. This was hard because PC hasn’t been here to go to his games. Went to the first game of the season – both of us – back in February. And then the game today, both of which they won! But the El Paso Yankees haven’t won any of the games in between. Hoping things look up now.
Attend a play or a special activity. Pending.
Food for the Soul
Pay it Forward. Pending.
Donate items. Pending. But just until tomorrow. All those items earmarked and set aside for the yard sale that didn’t happen today are going to be donated tomorrow.
I think it is safe to say I have plenty to keep me busy and off the streets the rest of the spring. And will get started this coming week, now that life has returned to our crazy normal.
How are you doing on your spring activities? Have you sailed through spring cleaning? Would love to hear about your progress in a comment below. And if you have a related blog post to share, please link-up with us.
Then join me in paying a visit the blogs of my fellow spring bucket listers. I am heading their way now, let’s go together.
Thank you for cheering me on for this spring bucket list, 04.2018 update.
Hugs and kisses,
