Fun Monday-The Bucket List



Today's Fun Monday hostess is Tiggerlane.  She wants us to make a bucket list.  Like in the movie "The Bucket List."  We need to list at least five things we would like to do before we die. I have not had a long time to think about this but I am going to give it a try.
My Bucket List
1.  I would like to play with my grandchildren someday after they are born.
2. First, I would like to see all my children have good jobs and happy lives.
3. I would like to learn French and German.
4. I would like to visit Italy and Australia.
5.  Also Russia and revisit Germany.
6. I would like to live in another country for an extended time (perferably France or Germany).
7. I would like to learn how to ski.
8. I would like to lose 20 lbs. and have a flat stomach. (going to work on this one this year)
9. I would like to travel to Canada by train.
10. I want to take another cruise.
11. I want to go to Chicago.
12. I would like to take dance lessons.  (ballroom and salsa)
13. I would like to go back to college and get a degree.
14. I would like to invent something useful.
15. I would like to take singing lessons.
16. I would like to run the New York marathon.
17. I would like to swim in an ocean. (a warm one)
18. I would like to visit Hawaii.
19. I would like to take art lessons and paint something beautiful.
20. I would like to write a song to be sung in church.
Now for some more serious things:
21. I would like to live a life that would show by my actions that I am a follower of Christ and love others as He did.
22. I would like to lead someone (more than one) to Jesus before I die.
23. I would like to support several children through World Vision.  I have one now from Chile and am going to support a child from Africa starting this week.  I hope for many more in the future.  
**Edit post already**
24. I really want to go to a Rose Bowl Parade.
25. And this will be doable immediately:  Watch the movie "The Bucket List."

I'll end my list for now.  I'll start to work on these things...
Please visit others who are making their list at Tiggerlane's.

#22 is the best item on your list. Amen!

PAT said...

I love your bucket list, Junebug!

Thanks so much for coming by the back porch and your comment. No the Grape Hyacinth isn't real..wish it was. I have a few beside the steps from the back porch. I love them! Perhaps I should get some little bulbs and try to grow some indoors.

Terrific list. I wish you an abundance of grandbaby kisses - nothing better.

Kaytabug said...

I would love to live long enough to enjoy my grandbabies.

I enjoyed reading your list!

susan said...

Wonderful list. I think I'm going to steal that last one and do it sometime this week!

Peter said...

A fine bucket of wishes there.

ellen b. said...

Fun list and #22 would be a blessing for sure...

Karmyn R said...

Good list - and some of them you could start RIGHT NOW!! (dancing lessons, for instance!)

janet said...

i'll race you to the flat stomach!! i'm working on that one myself!

ChrisB said...

I've long since given up all thoughts of the flat stomach bit of 8.
23 is such a worthwhile thing to be doing. Hope you get to tick a few more off in the future!

jientje said...

Maybe you could add visiting Belgium?

Junebug said...

jientje: I would like to add Belgium. :D

Lil Mouse said...

explore scholarships from church organizations, civic organizations, even universities, sometimes they will give money, especially to women going back to school after being out for some time...

Carrie Sue said...

I would like to go back to college and get a degree - Me too! Great list!

Jettie said...

What a sweet list!!!!!!!!!!!
and what exactly is a flat tummy!!
Amen!!

Jenni said...

I especially like your 21 and 22. Danny and I have talked about taking ballroom, salsa, and swing dance lessons. It seems kinda funny because we think about how his grandparents used to square dance when they were in their 50s and 60s and that makes it seem like a thing for older people. I think it would be fun at 36 too.

Alison said...

great list!! it all sounds very obtainable and realistic!

Tara said...

This is a neat idea and I enjoyed seeing what your priorities are!

Michelle said...

Great list!! I hope you get to do each of the things you listed!!

Tiggerlane said...

Excellent list - and you guys made me really start back on my diet today. I won't be around if I'm not healthy - so, thanks for the double dose of inspiration!

Pamela said...

jumping up and down, waving arms, yelling

"Number 25... Number 25!! I've done it"


giggle.

I could have written your list.I'm stealing 'em all except the New York Marathon. I jiggle tooo much.

Pamela said...

oh... "number one,, number one... "
I've done that one, too.
(:

Linda said...

I grew up in So Cal and never went to the Rose Bowl Parade, so I'm with you on that one - maybe someday we'll run into each other there! Great list, thanks for sharing it!

Joy T. said...

LOL I should put #25 on my list too because I haven't seen it yet either. After watching it, I could say I checked one thing off my list already :o) Your list is really great, lots of wonderful things to accomplish in your lifetime!

kitten said...

I have done 20, but haven't sang it at church. I don't have a pretty singing voice. I 'm not just saying that.

Karina said...

What a great list! Good luck with the flat tummy thing...I'm constantly working on that one...ah...maybe one day! haha

;-)
