Winter Bucket List
Do you like writing bucket lists?
Does writing such a list intrigue you or frustrate you? I find that dreaming about what to put on a bucket list is energizing and fun.
I wrote a Fall Bucket List this year. While I did not complete a lot of items on the list, it was fun to think about the items. It was also fun to do what I did. I am sure I accomplished more because of having this list. Some things are not season dependent, so I can do them anytime. And I have a list already made for next year!
Since it is a week into winter, it is an appropriate time to write My Winter Bucket List. I will spend the next 3 months (December 22, 2011 – March 19, 2012) having fun with the below list.
What would you add to this list? Or would your list be completely different?
- Go snowshoeing.
- Go dog sledding.
Make snowflakes for two tree areas in BKCand/or for my sliding glass window.
- Finish afghan.
- Set up home bird feeder.
- Make a snowglobe. This waterless snowglobe is a fun alternative. Perhaps watch the
movie Snowglobe.This snowglobe “cake“ made with rice krispies, this one with a “snowglobe” on top, or this flat, 2D snowglobe cake would be fun to make. How about these snowglobe cupcakes? I have got to make this adorable gift card snowglobe! I so want to make this snowglobe soap. Have you seen these snowglobes in a box?
