there is a movie call Bucket List.... It's a great movie. worth renting to view it. Two men make up a list of what they want to do before they die...they are in the hospital...one is rich, one isn't... so that's where it comes from... watch the movie.

Ok...here's my 5 I am sure there is more. ;)

1) go on a hot air balloon ride
2) see the Grand Canyon
3) see my children graduate from college
4) have my health long enough to enjoy retirement with my DH
5) keep learning and growing my quilting skills

Only one question... how to narrow it down to 5!!
1. Finish refurbishing our historical old house complete with landscaping.
2. Buy another sailboat and take a few more long sailing trips.
3. Finish my UFOs and make all the quilts that I have planned in my head!
4. Travel everywhere on my wish list, which includes going back to Europe.
5. Build our retirement home on our property on Lake Huron and my husband and I maintaining a level of good health so we can enjoy it!

Oh myyyy - when I am reading all of your lists, it is a reminder of what else I could have put on my list - heck - it probably is up to 100 now!

I have so many things to accomplish before I kick the bucket... here's a few....

1. get a minnie winnie and travel- all over for a month after we retire. just go and go and go. dine in little family diners and shop all the local antique stores, just for fun.

2. buy a few more collector cars- yellow Metropolitan convertible, '70 Trans Am convertible white with blue interior, '02 Trans Am (last year made) yellow convertible, the list goes on.

3. get my house clean and organized to my liking and keep it that way.

4. go on vacation with my bffs and sisters. I've always wanted to do this.

5. mend broken family ties.

Sooo hard, but I'll try....
1. To see each of the 50 states. I have almost done that except for the great northwest & I really want to get up there!
2. To master curves in quilting. I want to make a double wedding ring.
3. To master FMQ.
4. To make a difference in some one's life & know it.
5. To love as deeply as possible without worry of hurt feeling, he said/she said arguments, to give without thought of getting back.

1. See every country in the world.
2. See my kids happily secure on their own.
3. Do all the projects I have in my head (especially the one's I already have the fabric for, just not the time).
4. Learn to fly a plane.
5. and like Gramakitten - never have to worry about money.

Here is mine:
1. Have my children all raised and doing God's work for their lives.
2. Travel (home - all states but Hawaii (have no desire to go there - ever) and abroad - Italy, Norway, Switzerland, Ireland in particular)
3. Have enough time and money to quilt/sew/craft as much as I can.
4. Follow God's leading with our aquaponics systems - who knows? maybe He'll lead us to Italy, Norway, Switzerland and Ireland? :)
5. Be content with whatever I have, whomever I'm with, wherever I am.
