Ostara 2011- Summer Solstice 2011

Hey My loves,

this is a breakdown of the big Bucket List. "The Way to eat an Elephant is one small bite at a time." As my list is really long and has many different seasonal activities I thought it best to break them down and place them here.

As of course i accomplish each one i will blog and share about it, as well as link to any information if you are looking to attempt them yourself. Once the Spring aspect is done the page will come down and another will replace it. the goal is to keep doing these until all the bucket list is done (so basically hopefully not for a few years). To see my posts about each adventure click on the blue completed ones.

Some info about the colors:

  1. pale blue: tracking to completion, when done I will change it to dark blue and place a link to the post about it, 
  2. red is the number of items completed in that one item's list.
  3.  if the link has turned purple you have read the linked post already.
  4.  the one's which are deep red are items which can't be completed due to expiration of the item or items not done by the end of the list date (ostara) and they will either be rolled over to the new list or have to wait til the appropriate season comes around again.
Ok So here is my sorry excuse of why I haven't done anything big on the list: I'm back in school in an accelerated program to move up the ladder in my dream career, which is taking me one step closer to being a midwife. That means i have class Mon-Fri 645-3pm with no time to do anything else but, eat, sleep and study. Hopefully I will be able to accomplish more this summer, and maybe 1 or 2 things in the fall but I can't guareentee that so I'm focused on the big dream so that the smaller ones can be done later with leisdure!!! Ok excuse done by!!
