Spring Bucket List...

Ahhh...Happy Spring! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am that Winter is over!!! I'm sure most of you feel the same. There would be tons emojis in this post if I knew how to get them into blogger. Anyone? Here's my list:

 1. Make homemade noodles. Yep I am!
 2. Start a quilt now that I've found a tutorial that seems easy enough for a beginner. So happy I did not start cutting up that pretty material.
 3. Continue working on my CAL (crochet along).
 4. Lets just say take pictures with the Rebel this time around.
 5. Continue using My Fitness Pal and my Fit Bit Flex.
 6. Continue to purge and organize. This should be done by the time Summer rolls around.
 7. Grow a few herbs to use in the kitchen.
 8. Plant and maintain a small flower garden.
 9. Enjoy the outdoors!
10. Retire!!!

Whatever the season in your part of the world, I hope you are enjoying it.
Me, I'll be in the yard playing with flowers, taking an evening stroll or sitting on the porch sipping wine and relaxing a bit.

Winter Bucket List Update...

I posted my Winter Bucket List here. And today I'm sharing the did and did nots of it!

Still haven't made homemade noodles but I will...someday soon.
Still haven't started a small quilt but that pretty material is still waiting and I will...again someday soon. I found a tutorial on Fiskars that seems simple enough for a beginner.
Still behind on my CAL (crochet along) I'm getting there, slow but sure.
I did crochet the rag rug...pictures here.
I fell off the wagon on CY365. Dang it, someday!
Totally ditched #fmsphotoaday.
Me and My Fitness Pal are going strong. I've added a Fit Bit Flex to the mix. My goal was to lose 5 lbs., I've lost 6 lbs. so I'm doing maintenance, trying to hit green on the Fit Bit and exercising to tone up.
I baked something new. Baked oatmeal. I shared a photo of it on instagram. I never think about taking pictures during the process. I'll be making it often though, oatmeal is a favorite of mine.
Still purging!
Still organizing!

Spring is here, we've had some awesome weather already and I cannot wait to start planting a little flower garden. I'll be sharing my Spring Bucket List soon.
