My 'bucket list'

So my good bb (blog buddy) Laura kicked me a tag. Meme your bucket list. Eight things you want to do before you die. I'm a pretty conservative type, shy... keep to myself. So my little list may not be that exciting to you but these are my eight:

1) Travel! I have only ever travelled in Canada, and not much at that. My humble 'little' country has some of the most beautiful places God put on this earth. But I want to see more. To that end Kimfer and I are planning a trip to Greece next year in September. A riding trip to Greece! The riding vacay is about 8 days long but if we go I plan to stay a month. (Pie has family there so I'm sure my days would be kept filled!)

2) Find a competent teacher and take more riding lessons. My riding skills are a bit rusty, I never did take tons of lessons. I want to fine tune what I already do know and advance.

3) Live on our own land! Pie and I want to find an acreage close to 'the city' (Saskatoon). Not having the greatest luck right now but maybe one day.

4) Lose weight & get in shape. I won't dwell on this a lot, I've talked about it briefly before. I want it for me. I want to be healthy and live for a long time (although sometimes when I see the news I'm not sure about that!) Also, my brother and sister both have kidney disease. If I ever donate a kidney to one of them I'd like to be in good shape. I have no proof but I think the operation and recovery would be easier on me if I was. (and yes I'm selfish, I'm only donating one kidney! lol)

5) Learn to swim. I love the lake and the river but I'm a bit afraid of water. (must be the Gemini thing)

6) Try some kind of riding totally different than what I do. Take a ride on a well trained cutter/reiner/dressage/hunter. Or to really blow my mind make a run on a top level barrel horse! You know, just for comparisons sake. :)

7) For Pie and I to vacation somewhere together. Preferrably tropical and just the two of us. Of course work makes that difficult.

8) Learn to dance... lmao. Okay I am clutzy and have no sense of rhythm. Can you just picture it? I guess watching shows like "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Dancing With the Stars" have given a lot of people the dancing bug! Hey, maybe that's how we can rejuvinate the horse world...


  1. YOu have some good things on your list, wow I've never even thought about it before...

  2. I am right there with you on several things on your list...especially the get healthy and lose weight part!
    Oh...and the move out of town and have your own place in the country...and the refresh your horseback riding get the picture :)

  3. Great list, Cdn!

    Those all sound achievable - I'm with you on the property one - I forgot that on my list. I would love to live in the country again...

  4. Good list Cnd! I can relate to most. I dream of having a farm one day too.

  5. This is a great list, I don't see one that isn't achiveable!
