2019 Bucket list


Donna, over at My OBT (My One Best Thing), put together her 2019 bucket list.

What a great idea!

Blue sky and clouds, perfect for contemplation.

Of course this kind of thing takes some thought. She has 14 items, I don’t know if I have that many things I’d like to do or accomplish in 2019.

Which makes me wonder if I’m being lazy. Or maybe I’m just enjoying retirement’s freedom to do anything or nothing at all.

Evening light is good for contemplation too.


What should be on my bucket list for 2019? Things that are substantial enough to be noticed, but not unattainable.

Ideas are incoming!

I’m not at all sure I can get that list together before tomorrow, the first of January, the beginning of 2019. But I think early January is a good goal.

What’s on your 2019 bucket list?

2019, a long and winding road.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. I’m not great at creating formal lists, but it is always good to reflect at the end of the year. Reflect and dream….


  2. That was a great list she posted. I am such a ‘seat of my pants’ flier…..maybe that should be on my bucket list–to straighten up and fly right! 🙂

  3. I don’t know why, but “bucket list” is a term that I find rather off putting. Probably because I associate it with “those things I want to do before I die” = but I might consider putting together a list of things I hope to do during the coming year.


    • I think writing down things I want to do in 2019 might make it more a possibility that I actually do some or most of them. I don’t mean things I SHOULD do…I mean things I WANT to do.


  4. I love bucket lists because I keep finding bigger buckets!!! Always something to look forward to!


  5. I’m pretty lazy about planning, but I know a bucket list item when I see one! My list has to contain getting better on my flute, continuing my exercise routine, finishing my novel, and shooting for a kinder, nicer me. Guess that works in the short term, huh??


  6. I’ve never had a bucket list nor do I make resolutions. I do reflect every year end/beginning of a new year and try to improve myself in some way or dedicate myself to learning something new but I live with lists at work and the thought of having more at home oppresses me.


  7. Happy New Year. We will hide all the buckets in the house so Mommy cant put a list in it trying to force us on a diet!

  8. I’m taking it a month at a time with a few formal plans but mostly I’ll probably be like your “Ideas are incoming!” and wing it. I am signed up for a 12-week yoga course that began today so that should keep me busy for a while. I’d also like to do some more of the exercises from the Zen Camera book. It’s been sitting there waiting for me over the past month. It will be nice to have time for it again. And then there are the usual daily walks (I had to give up on the 365 project on Instagram when I was sick for 5 weeks), meanders through the woods and meadows, sunrises, and sunsets. 🙂

    • I’m still thinking about what I might want to accomplish sometime during this year…the Zen Camera book sounds interesting. Sorry you’ve been so sick! Hope you were able to kick whatever it was to the curb!


  9. Hmmm, I am not sure I have a bucket list. Except, of course, attending my daughter’s wedding in Italy next June!! (Happy Mama smile here.)


  10. Interesting idea. Can’t say I have a bucket list, never have. Usually when school is out for summer I have a “to do list” but in terms of things I long to do, want to do, I think I’m pretty content doing what I’m doing. Taking photos of birds, getting out in nature, visiting new local places and of course spending time at the beach 🙂


  11. Great idea to do a bucket list for the year. I retire in June so some travel in my new-to-me trailer is definitely on my list.


  12. A 2019 Bucket List is a good idea. I will have to think on that a bit more.
