I was checking out the daily prompts on Daily Post today. I have subscribed to it, so I keep getting these prompts in my mail. Many days I find these prompts interesting and inspiring, but I have never gotten around to write a post based on them. Today, I shuffled through the prompts (thank God for the Try Another option), and chose a pretty simple one, not because I was feeling lazy, but because I have been meaning to share this for a long time now, ever since I read this wonderful blog-post by Gabi.
So here’s my summer… err…. monsoon list (there’s a depression in my part of the world as I write right now, and the rain is coming in short but stubborn spells):
- Buy a Bonsai
- Read five authors whose works I have not read before
- Start gardening
- Take mother out to a movie
- Visit relatives and document family history
- Submit stories to five different magazines
- Click a photo with family and get it framed
- Discover five new places in my hometown
I have made lists in the past, but I am not very good at maintaining them. This time I thought things out, and kept reasonable targets. I hope by the end of this year I will be able to strike-through each item on my list as I go completing them. In case I don’t, I’ll probably add the remainders to my next year’s list. It’s never too late to do the things that you love, right?
Do you have a monsoon list? Please share with me. I love reading them!
