Dare I try an autumn bucket list? Or as I like to call it, an intentionality list. I didn't do very well with my spring and summer lists, so when Leslie, over at Once Upon a Time and Happily Ever After sent an email out for fall, I just wasn't sure. Yet, here I am, so we'll see how it goes.
Leslie shared this link as to 6 Reasons Why You Should Create a Bucket List. It's really good. Check out Leslies new post..she chooses to do these seasonal lists not because of looming "death" but to live a fuller life right now. I love that. It's easy to get stuck in routine, to not challenge ourselves to do something different, or learn new things, and maybe that's why my lists haven't been successful. Maybe they've been too long and maybe I just haven't been intentional enough to say "hey, this week I'm going to accomplish this on my list".
Not sure how much will happen in October as we have a vacation planned and then I work at the pumpkin patch on weekends.
Good for the Body:
⃞ Back to exercise: Got off track the last month with a messed up back and then a sinus cold.
⃞ Stretching: I know part of my back issues are tight muscles and I need to get back to stretching.
⃞ Schedule a massage: I have a gift card I need to use.
Good for the Soul/Spirit:
⃞ Listen to Podcasts: Be intentional with setting time aside for this. I have some mornings that I go into work late, hoping this could be the time for that.
⃞ Read a non-fiction book that encourages growth: At least one book. I'll be realistic..it takes me FOREVER to read a book so I'm not going to overshoot here. I have a few on my shelf that I haven't started, so I'll start with one of those.
⃞ Create a blog series to share: I've been doing great getting back into blogging by joining link ups etc. But I also want to create some "series" around certain themes. So maybe during fall I'll brainstorm the topics and get started in the winter.
Good for the Heart:
⃞ Schedule time with friends, maybe for coffee or lunch: Again, I'll be realistic...I work four days a week and babysit one day, so this may only happen once, but once is better than zero.
⃞ Take an afternoon to go hit some vintage/antique/thrift/boutique type stores: Even if I never buy anything, I love browsing.
⃞ Go to the new Hobby Lobby in town at the Mall: I haven't been there since they opened and I would love to go check it out. I've been to Hobby Lobby before but not this new one.
⃞ Date night with hubby: It's been awhile since we've been on one.
Good for the Mind:
⃞ Start back on my Duolingo: I slacked on this a lot!!
⃞ Play games/do puzzles: Weekends are really the only time for this so I will have to be intentional with it.
⃞ Cook with seasonal items: I've done this a little but want to do this more.
⃞ At least 2-3 new recipes a month: Trying to find new recipes to try.
⃞ Crafts/baking with my grandson: He's at a fun age so I'd love to find some fun things to do with him.
⃞ Go on a mural walk with my youngest daughter: There are several murals in our nearby city of Vancouver (Washington that is), and they are within walking distance, so this would be fun to do with her and then have lunch or coffee.
⃞ Work on the embroidery piece I bought last year and didn't start: It will be fun for winter decor I think, I just need to start it. I'd like to find a few smaller Christmas ones too.
Okay, I'm leaving it at this for now. We'll see if I decide to add to it or not.
