Drops in the Bucket 2012

After taking a glance at Lesley Carter‘s unbelievably impressive 2012 Bucket List (and picking my jaw back up off the floor after reading what she accomplished last year. . . ) I decided that a little bucket listing of my own might be in order for this year, especially since summer is upon us, and it’s bucket list tackle time! Now, mine probably seems pretty tame compared to a lot of bucket lists. . . no extreme sports or far-flung travels. . . but I promise, it’s only on the list if it’s going to take some extra effort!

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
