Happy Birthday to Me

Today is my birthday….since turning 50 I started making a bucket list for the coming year of things I wanted to accomplish during my 50th year  and then each year after that I made another bucket list of what I wanted to accomplish and so on…I only told a few people what I was doing ..

So today it’s another birthday so here is another bucket list to accomplish this year. Now first I don’t always accomplish everything on my list but I try to do a lot of what is on my list!  This is the first time I have made this list public…yikes this will put the pressure on now that everyone knows

  2. Read- 1 book month…yes this has been on my list every year and I have almost done it every year…..except this year got the book “Dearie” online. Problem is when you get a digital book you really don’t know how long it is!….over 1300 pages(I think this counts as 2 books)
