soul on fire

Some precious friends are jumping into their future dreams this week (month) with their souls on fire!  One of them posted this on their Facebook page.  I had to steal it.  Excited for her, and I hope to continue to be an encouragement to her and her dream.

Who do you encourage?

Revising My Bucket List

I have been wanting to revamp or streamline my bucket list especially since my weight loss.  To keep myself accountable, I am doing it here.  I am not placing order on the items as when I have the opportunity it will happen, right?

Original post in August 2012 – with updates

  • Travel (anywhere)– Just travel
  • Tandem jump
  • Parasail
  • Ride in a Hot Air Balloon
  • Learn to speak German (take a class)
  • Open a store or tea shop
  • Write a cookbook/book
  • Conquer Algebra (still in process)
  • Participate in a Disney 1/2 marathon (walking)
  • Fit into a size 10-12
  • Crochet or knit a blanket
  • Speak in front of a group of people
  • Learn how to can vegetables, or make jam and fruit preserves
  • Learn more than 6 words in sign language
  • Live in Europe
  • Own a Corvette
  • Go to a Dallas Cowboys Football game
  • Attend a gymnastics or ice skating Olympic event

One of my favorite things to do is eat at famous chef’s restaurants.  My list so far is below, and really don’t have a bucket list for them until we travel somewhere.

Emeril’s, Delmonico Steak House, Las Vegas
Chef Art Smith – Art and Soul, Washington DC, and Homecoming, Disney Springs
Morimoto’s, Asia, Disney Springs
Cat Cora’s, Kouzzina, now closed, at the Board Walk, Disney World
Wolfgang Puck’s, the Dining Room, Disney Springs
Gordan Ramsey’s, The Savoy, London
Paula Dean’s, Lady and Sons, Savannah, GA

Updated list for now anyway.   What is on your list?

Dream House

Would you rather live in the city in the middle of everything or in the outskirts of town on a couple of acres of land?  No yard maintenance, or a field of gardens?

I love where I live, but I think I would love to be elsewhere.  Just dreaming of a place where people don’t park in our yard.  I told David that I would rather have a condo on the beach (downsize) with no maintenance, or a one story 4-5 bedroom house on five or six acres for a garden and chickens-not too far out of town, but enough to have land.  He wants a bigger house, but in town without a lot of yard.  Ugh.  He doesn’t like yard work, so you would think that he would enjoy a condo.  But.

This won’t happen any time soon, but it doesn’t hurt to dream a little.

Happy Saturday –blessings.
