Until this week I didn’t have a bucket list. I started thinking about writing one because it’s one of the prompts for the Get Messy art journal challenge that I’m part of. I don’t think I can know all the things I’ll want to do,before I kick the bucket because I’m changing all the time. So I thought I’d start with just 10, 10 things I’d really like to do as at today.
1. Have an overseas holiday with us as a family before the girls leave home.
2. Travel up the east coast of Australia with a caravan with my Mr. (after they leave home).
3. Have four weeks off work, in a row.
4.Try practicing Feldenkrais again
5. Visit the Greek Islands
6. Live somewhere else, with a view
7. Learn to make sourdough bread
8. Start meditating
9. Finish my granny square crochet blanket
10. Go camping again.
And then once I had written 10 things I wasn’t ready to stop so I wrote a few more:
Spend a weekend in Melbourne doing Melbourne things with the girls.
Watch the last few episodes of Six feet under, in a row
Go through all our cupboards and minimize what we have
Have a week off to tidy up the house
Finish all my WIP quilts
Do the Great Ocean walk
Go on a health retreat
Make some more lemon butter ( this week)
Spruce up my blog
Rewrite my about me on this blog.
And suddenly it was morphing into a to do list.
Ok so now, I feel like it’s time to stop dreaming of all these things. I’m feeling unsettled. Time to actually do my art journaling for this week, or at least start. How about you, do you have a bucket list ?
This weeks prompts from get messy had me making a mess with shaving cream, doing some abstract painting and using printable words. As you can see I had some fun. I do take on too much though and was feeling a bit ragged when I did this last spread.
It’s school holidays here, once term goes back I’ll be tidying up this little blog, and celebrating it’s first birthday. But for now I really just need to slow things down, spend some time with my girls and stay on top of my IRL stuff (oh and art journal/draw/crochet ha ha ha). See you soon lovelies xx
