I guess the time has come to stop thinking about what might be on this list and actually write some things down.
After all, 2019 will march along whether I get organized or not.
And without a list some of this stuff might not have a shot at happening. Not to say I’ll get to do it all, but certainly I’ll forget to even try if it’s not written down.
That’s what happens to me lately, I forget stuff not written down and I doubt that I am alone in that regard, especially among people my age.
So (drum roll please) here’s the list in no particular order:
2019 Interesting, Stupendous and Fun Things
*Visit the Point Betsie lighthouse in the winter to see the ice formations.
*Camping in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (not in winter).
*Try acrylic painting.
*Find someone willing to teach me what it’s like to make a sound on a cello.
*Gain confidence on the new Nikon camera, and figure out what the optimum lens is.
*Improve night photography skills.
*Spend a week in the Southwest.
*Visit husband’s family in Norway.
*Walk the CRIM 10 mile race in August.
*Spend a month or more in Alabama, invite friends to visit while I’m there.
*Look into the purchase of a 2nd kayak for the lake.
*Read 50 books, and try at least one from a genre I don’t usually read.
*Ride my bike on some of the rail-to-trails around here, maybe a one day bike trip complete with lunch along the way, maybe with a local bike group.
*Walk and photograph the Dequindre Cut here in Detroit.
*Meetup with sheltie mom(s) for adventure.
My plan is to check in on this list every month, and add items as they occur to me. No rule says January is the only month to dream, right?
What interesting, stupendous or fun things do you plan on doing in 2019?
