Well today I am going to take advantage of this 20 degree decrease in heat and go to the park and read! When opportunities occur you have to take advantage! I plan on keeping my eyes open and take in all the sites and enjoy the small things and hopefully capture each opportunity…
:-) (aren’t I cheery today!?)
There is a fondue restaurant down town and they have the full lay out! First cheese (you pick what you want in it!) then main course, meats, veggies, etc. THEN chocolate dessert! YUMMMY it’s so good. They serve apples and bread with the cheese and it is amazing. The bananas and chocolate are my fav. dessert.
I have to say this is complete. I have made new friends, Sure I want to keep making them, but I have some new ones…so that counts right?!?
I really liked the filming aspect of it, the colors/characters, etc. I liked the differences too, the twist to the story. And the kid who played Charlie was wonderful!
In my opinion it’s a great movie. I liked the old version too, you can’t really compare them. sure it’s the same story in a way, but both are so good….one does not ‘win’.
I doubt this goal could ever be ‘completed’. So I shall not stress on it any more (not that it was real stressing anyway).
I am happy that so many are interesting in some of words and I enjoy this whole thing so much.
Wow I feel like I am giving an award acceptance speech…. :-)
I found 18 people subscribed to me! Wow you all are wonderful. Now fess up. If you want to of course. If not that is ok too! You know who you are at least! :-)
I keep ya busy don’t I? :-)
attend a lunch with Joan Jett, Dana Glover, Sophie B. Hawkins, Bono, Eartha Kitt, Julie Newmar, Oprah, Drew Barrymore, Ani DiFranco, Jewel, Maya Angelou, and my sister (read all 3 entries…)
Seems like an interesting group to eat lunch with and have some exciting conversations with! I think it would be serious but yet with a lot of laughter…
Maybe one day….
I am marking this one off, I am sure I will keep collecting here and there, but for now I have a few and I feel this is complete (At least complete for me now). It will be ongoing!
I have to find a way to do this so I can mark it off. There are a ton of dairy farms around here…I can make this happen!
I think this is another thing I will have to work on forever. I have good days, weeks, months, but I am sure throughout my life I will talk more than I do. But I am doing more than I used to, so I am progressing some! So this is a work in progress. I have really been working hard on it though, I figure “If you think it, you should do it or say it or never think it again”. Easier said than done! But I’m working on this!
Maybe this goal could be combined with a few of my other ones, I mean if I am forgiving others and myself, that is making a difference. Volunteering is making a difference, making people think, making things not so hard is making a difference…to me anyway!
Maybe I have achieved this, I believe this is ongoing though, sure making the difference for one person is wonderful, but imagine 10 or 100, 1000, 10,000, etc. So I guess this one will always be on my list….
I hope to submit my documentary when it’s done…one step at a time, but I’ll get there! :-)
Yes nice indeed. I am working on this, and it seems to be working. I try to think how a particular event effects my life. Most things aren’t that major! Life is good, I need to accept that! :-)
I am actually at a point to where I need to stop adding to my “volunteer” list! I have five organizations I volunteer with. They are not all full time, some are twice a year, some are once a month, etc. But I love doing it! But I am at a point where I will not add any more at this time. I do not want to cheat any of the orgainizations out of my time, if I am volunteering I want to give it my all, so for now I will stick with what i have!
I do love it though. I work with one organization that gives free flights to paitents who need to fly to an appt. or special hospital and can not afford to go. The flight is free, the pilot volunteers their time and pays for all expenses of the flight. Isn’t that great?! I have had so many great opportunities through volunteering, I hope I never have to give it up for any reason!
I want to pick up the phone I do. But I know where it has led me in the past and I am not sure if I am ready to go there yet again. He did call me a few months ago to speak to my husband of course. Then the time before that (also to talk to my husband about a satellite issue), after hearing him talk about my mom and how I never see him and all that other crap I said You know dad, I miss you…what does he say ” Babe I gotta go.”...
So maybe this goal will take a while, but I do have it on my list.
Well I won my first ebay bid for an old letter so this one is starting….can I mark it off yet…Maybe I need a few more letters before I check this one off!
It is amazing how much you can get done when you don’t turn the tv on. It was great when we lived a year without a tv. I remember going to friend’s houses and the tv would be on and they would ask about a show (if I watched it, etc.t) It was great being in the dark about things like that!
This has been a ‘wish’/daydream since I can remember. To travel back to the old days (early 1900’s/1920 ish) and see what it was like without all the conveniences of today would be amazing.
I am not sure if I would travel to the future though… Only if I could go 100 years or so in the future, so I would not be aware of how anyone I know would be doing I would rather go so far past our lives that all of it would be so new I might not be able to comprehend it all! ;-) I’m crazy.
I don’t know why, but I have always wanted to get in a big (MONSTER) truck and drive over some old cars…how fun would that be?! I really hope I get to feel this rush one day.
I bet it takes a lot of strength to keep it straight, etc., but I also bet it’s a ton of fun! They have you belted in so good, I am sure it’s hard to even move, but a bit bumpy I can imagine! (I’m laughing at that last line “a bit bumpy”) I bet you would have some bruises after a ride like that! I can’t wait!
Been together since we were 16 and 14…actually shared our first kiss at the ages of 8 and 6…I have known him my whole life and hope I know him for the rest of it!
