One of my favourite things to do each month, or anytime for that matter, is to check off lists after things are completed. It gives me a great sense of accomplishment and joy, reflecting on the past month. But because I skipped October’s Bucket List (oops), and I’m a bit late to the game in November (double oops – I blame this wonderful news for both!!), I want to bring it back to September for just a moment. Some of the things I didn’t finish, could be relevant this month!
It’s been far too long since I’ve done this. This being, pulling up a chair, grabbing a cup of tea, dreaming about what I hope to possibly achieve this month, and then writing it down for good measure. I’m bringing the habit back, ’cause it’s a good one.
As I look back on pictures from the last month, it is clear to me that October was an especially full month. It feels like ages ago that I kicked-off October in the local apple orchard with my sister, and friend, Sam. We collected 20 Lbs. of Macintosh apples, which I promptly turned into apple sauce and cider. As the month continued, so many exciting/new/challenging/fun things happened, and my bucket list was almost completed.
In September, I was able to accomplish most of my bucket list! I had originally written it to help with the transition of summer to fall, and what a great reminder it has been to enjoy the new season. Letting go of beach days isn’t so difficult when you have “go apple picking” on the agenda.
