Happy New Year!

Hi friends... this is my first posting for 2012. Wow! A brand new year to play around with. Hmmm... what to do... what to do? Find a lost treasure? Discover the cure for the common cold? Walk on fire? Save the world? Decisions... decisions. In April, I will be another year older so maybe for starters, instead of writing out my typical list of new years resolutions, I'll post my bucket list instead. Just so you know, it's not in any particular order and some of it may actually confuse you but anyway, here goes... 

1. See the Northern lights.

2. Spend an entire summer in England.
3. Publish a book. (already on Chapter 16)

  1. Oh I love your list...... A whole summer in England... that would be right at the top for me too.

    I'm just reading Surprised by Oxford, a memoir by Carolyn Weber, about the time she spent studying in Oxford and her surprised encounter with God. Her description of that amazing place makes me wanna get over there and breathe some English air and atmosphere.

    Wishing you the BEST year ahead.... and I look forward to sharing some of the journey with you through our blogging pages....

    Wishing you glimpses of beauty everywhere!

  2. That's a great bucket list, Dee! I love England and would love to spend 8 months there, preferably from March through October! We used to see the Northern Lights a lot when I was a kid. Maybe with the predicted solar activity in 2012, we'll get to see them more active again. Good luck with your list. And thanks so much for stopping in at Cranberry Morning! Your comment is so encouraging.♥ P.S. I LOVE Pennsylvania!!! I think it's one of the most beautiful states.
