My Bucket List

Posted at 7:17 am under My Bucket List

I have been inspired once more by Sydney. And so I begin My Bucket List. These are no particular order, simply as they spring to mind. I will keep this list in my anchored pages so that I can update it. I haven’t seen this movie yet, and am very much looking forward to it :-)

Before I “Kick The Bucket” I want to:

  1. Marry the love of my life and live happily ever after. I imagine feeling completely content and utterly safe with him, listening to music, sampling wines, reading, watching sappy old movies all while snuggling up in front of a cozy fire.
  2. Dance to All I Ask of You at my wedding.
  3. Spend a month in Tuscany in a lovely Villa with a fireplace and a pool. I want it to be overlooking a vineyard on one side, and Cypress trees, Poppy fields and Olive trees on the other. I want to spend my days exploring ancient Rome and local marketplaces while sipping wine and sampling all the fabulous food only the local Italians can offer.
  4. Pay off my mortgage and finally and forever be completely debt-free. While I have never imagined myself being wealthy, and have no non-secured debt, this is my idea of true wealth.
  5. Learn to relax, as thoroughly and luxuriously as my cats do every day of their nine lives.
  6. Learn to play the piano.
  7. Own a second home in New England so as often as I wished I could spend as much time with my sisters as I would like.
  8. See the Pyramids.
  9. See the triumphant return of Jesus. I can’t explain it, but since I was a little girl, I have always felt that I would be alive when that happens. I felt this way long before I knew what being saved was. I am an avid reader of biblical prophesy. Unfortunately, my brain is too small to hold the enormity of it and my memory is such that I retain very little of it. Of course, I know I am in good company! I read the Left Behind series in great anticipation of reading another person’s concept of what that magnificent event will be like.
  10. Know that everybody I love is saved and will spend all eternity free of pain and tears.
  11. Spend a Christmas at a ski lodge in Vermont, not unlike the firepit scene with Bob Wallace & Betty Haynes from White Christmas. I am originally from New England and have never been to Vermont! I have always imagined it to be at it’s most splendid during Christmas.
  12. Attend a Placido Domingo concert while he is still in glorious voice.
  13. Attend a Andrea Bocelli concert, in Italy.
  14. Reach my ideal body weight and be in excellent health.
  15. Watch the sunset on an uncrowded beach in St. Maarten with my only love.
  16. See The Phantom of the Opera in London, enjoy a pint at the pub, visit Stonehenge and walk across the crosswalk on Abbey Road.
  17. Spend at least a week in Greece.
  18. Encourage my parents to check off as many items from their Bucket List while they both enjoy strong body, mind and spirit.

2 Witty Remarks to “My Bucket List”

    Well, I have always vowed that I will never see a Lloyd Weber musical – but know a few good pubs! So when you are fulfilling that part of your dream let me know and we’ll meet up for a pint if you’ll share one with a committed pagan. Hope to see you in London.

    Awesome list!

    Now that I’ve inspired you to write yours, I guess I should go and write mine! LOL Yes, we must be kindred spirits because I want to add a variation of #1, 3, 4, 9 and 10 to my list.

    Are you planning to see the movie? I love both Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. It looks like it’s going to be a blast.
