Spring Bucket List 2012

. at . Leave a comment

When brainstorming lists or writing in my journal, my preferred pen is a gel pen.  My notebook is spiral-bound,

These past 3 seasons (Summer, Fall, and Winter) I wrote a seasonal bucket list to complete during each season. I even wrote a Theological Bucket List (but this is for the year of 2012).

For the Winter season list, I also wrote monthly reviews on what I accomplished (month one, month two, month three). Knowing the reviews were coming up, helped me stay on task better. I also enjoyed the accomplishments more because I thought about them twice: once when I did it, and then once when I wrote about it.

  • Many of the items I took from my 101 Things To Do in 1001 Days list.
  • Many of the items were not really specific to that certain season, like my reading list, savings goals, or decluttering.

It was so much fun to write these lists and to have a general life-direction to-do list, I decided to write a Spring list too.

Spring Bucket List 2012 (March 20 – June 19)


  • Daffodil Hill
  • Plant my patio planter boxes
  • Start a Spanish group

I have finished squares for 2 quilts. The one I’d like to put together first is the all green squares.


  • Find/Lay out  green blocks for quilt


Health and Fitness

  • Morning routine 30 times (20 minutes devotional, 20 minutes exercise, 20 minutes declutter)


  • Go a month without buying anything that isn’t a necessity
  • Pay 0ff ½ student loans



  • Take a self-portrait every Thursday during the Spring (March 20 – June 19) One, 2, Three, 4, Five, 6, Seven, 8

Read (4 of the books are from my personal collection)


  • Dying for Chocolate by Diane Mott Davidson
  • The Handmaid and the Carpenter by Elizabeth Berg (Don’t recommend)
  • Unafraid (about Mary the mother of Jesus) by Francine Rivers

Non Fiction

  • Case for Christ for Kids by Lee Strobel
  • The Sense of His Presence by David Mains
  • Unmapped Darkness by Thomas Finch

Spring Clean


  • Blog 4-8 pictures from New Zealand and/or Jerusalem: One (NZ), Two, Three, Four,
  • Put notes into computer about 19 Things I Learned from My Dog
  • Go through blog drafts and finish 15 of them: One, Two, Three, Four, Five
This Spring Bucket List 2012 is in a pdf format. I will print it out, front and back on one piece of paper, and use it to check off the items as I finish them. Wahoo, Spring is here!
Do you think I reached my goal of writing a more realistic list?

Your Turn . . .

  • What are you most excited about for Spring?
  • What would you put on your bucket list?
