Time for the final progress report on my winter bucket list. There were just a few loose ends that needed to be tied up at the time of my last report, here. Let’s see if I can finally put this bucket list to bed.
What was left?
From February’s progress report, here’s what I was lacking.
Christmas ornaments or decorating place mats with family
Will have to carry this over to next year’s list. Somehow it just doesn’t seem right to be working on Christmas ornaments right before Easter. Good call?
Pay it forward
With the pressure on and time running out, knew I had to get this done. A couple of Saturdays ago, I took a little extra cash to PC’s ball game, and stood outside the gate to pay the entry fee to the ball park for a few cars.
The young kid in the dark SUV was really surprised to learn that someone was paying his entry fee. Albeit only $2. He turned to wave at me and then told the gal at that booth that he would pay it forward, too, and he paid for the red truck. Albeit only $2 but it’s the little things, right?
Record a Christmas story
Nope. Maybe I should add that to next autumn’s bucket list? Or, heck, summer’s?
Run a winter 5K
We signed up for one in February then it rained that morning and was terribly windy. So we skipped it. Moved this to my spring bucket list. Visit that post, here. And I am signed up for the “Run for the Fallen” next Saturday, April 1.
On Presidents Day, my sister Valerie and I Skryped (scrapbooked + Skyped). I worked on two pages with pictures from last Christmas. We both packed scrapbooking projects to work on when we went to Kentucky for mom’s and Lucia’s birthdays. Valerie even brought a children’s scrapbooking kit for Cady.
Valerie’s suitcase didn’t make her plane in Houston when she flew to up Kentucky. That threw a wrench in our scrapbooking plans. I did get one page finished with a little help from both Lucia and Cady, and my mom looking on.
And that’s all folks
That’s it for this final progress report. Didn’t get everything completed but that’s ok. Doing these bucket lists has been lots of fun. It has helped me to be more productive, to try new things and finish up old projects.
If you are interested in joining the fun this spring, just holler. We did our initial spring bucket posts on the first day of the season. But we have a first progress report planned for April 27. Mark your calendars!! Have a nice group of gals joining the fun but we are missing YOU! Even if you don’t blog, you can post pics on Instagram of activities on your bucket list and tag them with #springbucketlist17.
Going to set my lap top aside and watch the second half of the Kentucky-North Carolina in the last game of the Elite Eight match-ups. Pulling for those wildcats.
Have a quiet Monday!
Hugs and kisses,
