The Bucket List is Back for Spring
Spring in our coastal part of Southern California is not that different from Winter, but the temps do warm up a bit which will make being more active easier. We also have both acknowledged that we are a bit bored and need to find more activities we enjoy. Add in some adventures and lots of family time and we should have a happy Spring.
Spend Easter weekend with family: This event is why I was asking for help with coffee cake recipes. We are going to spend the weekend with our local son and his fiancee. Dogs included and thank goodness they are friends. Hopefully a field trip to see the fall wedding venue too.
Throw a party to celebrate one year back in California: We moved in to this house on April 19th although we owned it starting March 22nd. We are thinking a snacks and drinks kind of event to which we will invite DHs pickle ball friends, my Pet Club friends, a few other people we have met or reconnected with, and family. That is a lot of people. Ideas for menus and how to stage this???
Celebrate our anniversary: April 12th it will be 37 years. We will probably go out to eat.
Three 21 day challenges: If you can do something for 21 days it comes close to being a habit that you miss if you stop. Not sure that applies to not drinking wine but I went 3 years without drinking back when I had heart problems so I know I could do that too if motivated. Challenge 1: Walking. Challenge 2: Stretching/flexibility. Challenge 3: Lose the sugar/snacks.
Try out a book club: There are two book clubs at my local library. I've got the Tuesday morning one on my calendar for April. I'm also going to research a nearby women's club that has lots of interesting activities.
Visit a tide pool: We keep talking about this and simply need to find out when is a good time to do it and if we can join a ranger walk one day. Leo Carrillo State Beach here we come.
Go to a play: I bought the tickets so April 15th we will try out the local, all volunteer playhouse. It could provide me with a volunteering option so will be looking at that too.
Go to Ghengis Khan exhibit at the Reagan Library: May of June will be the target for this. I have a long time friend who live near it so we will see if she wants to join us.
