  1. Your list is beautiful, I would like to add a few of those on my list!

  2. Carrie, you have some positive goals there! Blessings.

  3. Funny you should say this. I've just started mine!

  4. many of the things on your list are on mine too. Maybe we should just do them together...kill two birds with one stone!! I urge you to go back to school and take an art class. I went back at age 48, got my AA degree, then went on to get my BA at age 52! You are never too old to do anything you want to do. Write that book of poems. Publish it yourself if you don't want to go to a publisher. At least you have the book done to check off your list. And that children's book: do that too. I have done that but not the poetry one yet. Tess Kincaid did her own chap book though. Easy to do. Thanks for your comments. I will be back here again.

  5. I've been meaning to amend my present one, so I'll take note right now!

    You go for it, girl! I'm right up there with you on No.s 7 & 4!

  6. I need to make one, too. Mine would be very similar to yours.

  7. in other words..."LIVE"! Love this list!

  8. That is quite a list! And a great one, at that!

  9. Interesting list. Hope you make them all. I have severely reduced mine.

  10. Just reminded me that I need to make out a grocery list.

  11. That's a great list - I hope you complete each and every think on it!

  12. oh my dear....this is a heartwarming post...thanks for pointing me to this blog of yours...
    Your bucket list is very doable...
    I love Erma's quote...she is dead on.....wise
    let us live it

  13. I love this blog, where you keep your dreams alive - with wonderful images that shows nothing is TOO big or TOO little. Our dreams make us whole - never give them up.

    I love you, my dear dear friend from the poetry blogosphere. Take care and let go - it will all come to you with clarity.

  14. A most excellent list! Now get your pad and pen and start marking them off, one by one! You'll get there- but hopefully, your list will keep growing!

  15. nice...i like your bucket list...i would love to visit ireland...see your grandchildrens children graduate from college, nice...that is i am curious, did you mark any off this year?

  16. I'm with you for 2,3,4,5 & 8. Great list!

  17. okay...7 months's the list doing?

  18. I believe that when I die it will be while in the act of doing my bucket list, not having completed--or not.

    You have a good list to be doing any or all.
    PEACE and LIGHT, Carrie!

  19. Nice post, great blog, following :)

    Good Luck :)

  20. blessings.....
    don't forget...
    Love myself completely, inside out, outside in and be content with being perfectly imperfect.


  21. Carrie,

    I like your Bucket List, since it is not over-indulgent and very easily might relate to my desires also.
    Ireland is a great first choice Carrie!!
    Hopefully it is simply a list you tick through a long and enjoyable life my friend:)

    Best wishes,
    Eileen :)
