You know how last week I mentioned "I've hated to say it before now, but I think Spring is really here."
I should have known better..
Here is our week's forecast:
Yep. That would be snow forecast for Friday morning. Saturday night is prom for Bunny. That beautiful gown will be a little bare for 34º temps. Not that the temperature will stop her from wearing it. Anyway, Friday is a long ways away and forecasts are frequently wrong.
Today I panicked a bit about the rest of my list. Because, as I have mentioned, I'm at a standstill.
So I scrolled through and found the time specific ones and put those dates on my calendar.
I've missed polo season (#55) but it starts again mid-September. There are polo clubs in Houston and also near Belle in Florida. I should be able to fit that in somehow.
Thanksgiving at the beach. (#13) Belle has informed me that she loves Florida and is planning on staying there even though she does not love school so much. I am thinking we will just go see Belle for Thanksgiving next year: turkey at the beach. (And nope, I haven't broken this news to her or anyone else in the family yet, so "shhhhhhh". )
Ice hockey season is also over but I will have a chance next fall. Looks like games start in October. (#57)
That colonoscopy. (#43) I am so overdue for that. This summer. Waiting until I am in Texas because that is not something I want to do in my little town...and I sure don't want to have to drive two or three hours away for it, either.
In June I'm meeting up with my friends to plan our 60th trip. (#1) Two of us turn 60 this year, the rest do it in 2016. The trip most likely will not happen before I turn 60 but if we have it planned, I'm counting it!
Bunny's friend took her out and taught her how to shoot a pistol. I thought she was pretty good until she told me she was only about 20 feet away from the target.
Red Rocks Amphitheatre has their summer schedule out. (#4) Just need to schedule a trip to Denver and con someone into going with me. Easy.
And as soon as the vegetable starts come out, I'm grabbing a few. (#39) Last year I was not successful because it is so dry here. Miss one day of watering and Poof! those plants are dead.
So I'm thinking a potted veggie garden on the patio will work best. Close by, I can see them and, more importantly, water them every morning easily. No shoes required to walk out into the big gardens. (This ground is pretty rocky. Even though I am a total barefoot kid, I need shoes to walk in the yard.) Crossing my fingers for success this year.
Cozumel, well, that may not happen. (#15) Not many people want to go to Mexico with me. I think I would be totally safe but..... I can come up with something else. I've been a million times and it is just one of my favorite places. Not saying it won't happen eventually, just maybe not in the next year. But maybe I can go to Cuba instead. That has been a lifelong dream and it looks closer and closer to becoming a reality. Cross your fingers.
Soooo...... there's hope. And putting things on the calendar makes them more likely to happen.
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.
