Spring Bucket List 2021 ~ Harvest Lane Cottage

Getting things done is often one part work and two parts focus. 
My Bucket Lists help me to focus on the things that I want to do that aren't part of my daily routine. They also remind me to have a little fun and enjoy the season! I will change the listings to italics as I cross them off the list.

Here's my Spring Bucket List 2021.
  • Write my Spring Bucket List
  • Write my Spring Reading List
  • Enjoy an Easter Lily
  • Celebrate Resurrection Day
  • Plant zinnias for a cutting garden
  • Go to the drive-in 
  • Fill planter with flowers to enjoy outside the door... 
  • Picnic in the park
  • Ice cream run 
  • Wash windows
  • Make cookies for the kids on a rainy day
  • Touch up paint in the laundry room.
  • Put new blinds and curtains up in our bedroom.
  • Double Feature Movie Night
  • Sew a new apron
  • Sew a new skirt
  • Spray paint old metal cart
  • Help Emily and Amy practice hospitality
  • Invite friends for soup and bread
  • Invite friends for dessert
  • Invite neighbors for bbq
  • Invite neighbors for pie
  • Pedicure 
  • Try four new low carb recipes
  • Knit and crochet a big pile of dishcloths for gifts.
  • Finish Emily's quilt
  • Paint the porch table and chairs. We're having the cushions recovered.
  • Go knitting with a friend
  • Blow bubbles
  • Destination unknown picnic
  • Plant Petunias
  • Worship Jesus under the stars
  • Put cushions and ferns out on the front porch.
  • Find a potted plant or a center piece for the front porch table. Maybe a candle?
  • Celebrate my daughter Emily's college graduation.

I may add or subtract as I go, but it's a start! My bucket lists and reading lists inspire me and help me to enjoy life and get things done. I hope these lists will inspire you to make your own list! I know some items will be passed on to my summer bucket list, but it is motivating!

What will you put on your bucket list?

What is on your reading list?

Be blessed!

...doing what I can with what I've got where I am 
on a short shoestring budget!

    Emily is graduating college!!!! Holy Smokes, I am getting old. Why in my mind does everyone else stay the same age as I turn old and gray? Congratulations! I love your bucket lists, I am more of a daily list kinda gal, like 1. Get out of bed. 2. Drink coffee. ;) Maybe that is my problem! I love your blog and keeping up with you since I am not on any "social" media! Have a great week!

    1. Oh Deb, you're a sweetheart. It's hard for me to imagine you old and gray! I'm happy every time I see your name in my mailbox. Hugs to you! Laura

  2. I always love and copy : ) your seasonal bucket lists dear Laura! Thank you for posting!

    1. I'm honored Angela. I hope you have lots of fun. 

  3. Happy Spring! We are having a family picnic at my dad’s pond in a couple of weeks. We skipped Christmas this past year, so we are all looking forward to getting time again. Get busy and start marking things off your list!

    1. Dear Penny, I think the picnic is a fabulous idea! I hope you all have a terrific time. I missed seeing my family at Christmas, too. I hope to see my dad and step-mom next month.Blessings,Laura
