Bucket List

I’ve updated the bucket list I created back in October 2014. It includes only efforts that are a) fairly specific, b) can be accomplished in one fell swoop and c) are easily checked off when done. In other words, it doesn’t include things like declutter my house and keep it clean and tidy, or build deeper friendships, even though I’m working on those as well.

  • publish at least one picture book
  • finish my novel and get it published
  • enter and win a writing contest
  • have a #1 best seller (hey, why not dream big?)
  • obtain a Master's, or equivalent, in Creative Writing
  • study under/be mentored by an accomplished (maybe even famous) author


  • see friends who live at a distance: especially, but not limited to, Armita, Libby, Patty, Pavlina
  • find and reconnect with friends from elementary school: Gillian and Susan 

  • create scrapbooks for my kids
  • finish my son's baby book
  • organize my photos and catch up on my photo albums

Health and Fitness
  • lose seven pounds
  • take a ballroom dancing class
  • learn krav maga


This used to include things like learning how to sew, knit/crochet, make jams/preserves, etc. Now I am older and wiser. There are certain things I am just never likely to undertake.

  • Sweden
  • United Kingdom (Northern Ireland again, but also England and Scotland)
  • Ireland (again)
  • L'Anse Aux Meadows and Gros Morne, Newfoundland
  • Vancouver Island
  • Bermuda
  • Cayman Islands
  • Colorado
  • Hawaii
  • Tennessee
  • Mackinac Island
Speaking of travel, where’s your late autumn go-to destination for rest and relaxation?

And  what’s on your bucket list?
