Spring Bucket List 2023

"For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over
and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; 
the time of the singing of birds is come..."
(Song of Solomon 2:11-12)

  1. Hey Rebecca!!!! Love the Spring List! Hubby and I do one new goal each season. It's quite fun to shoot for something. Also, I LOVE PEEPERS! Usually we hear one little peeper start first though this year, not yet. Soon though.

    As for food menu, now that we have a kitchen table again I'm fixing to do less crappy out and more wonderful home-cooked foods. I got away from cooking once I got the day job. Now that we have a table again, things should return for the better.

    Cheers and boogie boogie. Ivy.

    1. Thanks, Ivy! I love peepers, too! I'm sure you'll be hearing the first of them in your area very soon. That's great that you have a kitchen table again! I'm sure it will go a long ways towards getting back on track with food prep at home. Have a great rest of the week! :)

  2. Whew! Sounds busy! But this is a great idea and I should sit down a put together a list. Spring is almost here!

    1. It's a lot, I know, but I'm determined to mark off as many as possible. It will keep me busy trying anyway! I'll be looking forward to your list and, my dear! Spring is here! Yesterday made it official! Have a great rest of the week!

  3. wow what a list!!! i've been listening to the spring peepers for nigh on a month now up in the holler...my major item on the spring bucket list is to actually get the guest room cleaned out and stuff listed to sell online AND try to get plants to grow for planting in the garden :-) That room is a disaster!!!

    1. It's good to hear from you, Becky! Sounds like you've got a couple of really good goals there on your spring bucket list! I wish you well with both of them and know that you'll get them done before season's end. Thanks for stopping by! <3

  4. Great list, inspiring to me. We've had fresh asparagus (maybe? probably not quite in season yet) from the grocery store already a few times this month. One of our favorites. Hope you have a very Happy Spring!

    1. Thanks, Jean! Yes, I've been eating fresh asparagus sauteed in a teaspoon of butter then mixed in with scrambled egg and eggwhites. So good and one of my favorites, too! Happy Spring to you, too! Enjoy every moment! <3
