Spring To-Do List


Spring has finally arrived! Our weather is still very gray, damp, and chilly with many rainy days–but it’s spring! We’re seeing the sun a little more often. The temps are slightly warmer and the snow on the ground is gradually disappearing. The grass is beginning to green up a bit and I’m sure we’ll start seeing buds on the trees and early spring flowers blooming before long.

Some of my blogging friends asked me to participate in a “Spring Bucket List” challenge, so I’ve been considering what to put on mine. As far as I know, there aren’t any rules for the challenge, so I’m going to list some fun things I’d like to do this spring. Not resolutions or goals. Just some “not-my-daily-routine” activities that I want to make time for. The time-frame for this list is from now till the first day of summer.

My 2017 Spring To-Do List

  • Attend church convention in Tacoma, Washington.

  • Help Rebecca get chickens and build chicken coop.

  • Finish the sweater I started crocheting in February.

  • Visit at least one waterfall to see the spring run-off.

  • Dewinterize our vintage trailer and go camping.

  • Design or create a line of greeting cards.

  • Host booths for the print shop at local business fairs.

  • Plant sunflowers by the porch.

  • Decorate the porch for summer.

  • Go on a Geocaching day trip.

[This picture is from a Geocache we found on our trip to the Oregon coast earlier this month. It had a small lock box inside with dozens of keys. Part of the challenge was to dig through the keys to find the right one. It took us a little while but we found it. Clever, huh?]

  • Pick a bouquet of wildflowers.

  • Invite friends over for a cook-out.

What would you like to do for fun this spring? I’d love to know!

    Does this post mean you will be joining us for updates…first one April 27?? So excited! Love that your list has a little bit of everything on it, spiritual, creative, outdoor and indoor activities. I find I really, truly try to do whatever I put on my list. Shame it takes writing it down and blogging about it to inspire me but whatever works.
