Mandy, this is fantastic! I'm new to this Writer's Workshop and tried the Bucket List. I did not make it as far as you. I scratched the list and moved on to try a different prompt.ReplyDelete
I'm glad I'm not the only one! Only, I'm such a nut that I came back to add to it! This is my first time here, so hoping that next week isn't as daunting!
Thanks for stopping by!
#14 sounds great!!! LOL!!!ReplyDelete
I always wanted to have a library for teens...a really groovy place with a juice bar and cool music. I wanted to have myself and a social worker who could be available to talk if they wanted to talk about anything on their minds. I still think that would be a wonderful hang-out for teens!!!
I like that you have "Visit Graceland" on here. That is something fun I would like to explore one day too!ReplyDelete
I like the Amish community wish, but ....er, what's a succulent nursery? Good that you didn't feel the need to reach 100 on your bucket list. I like people who do things their own way. I did the workshop too but on a different prompt.ReplyDelete
A succulent nursery is just a garden center/nursery for just succulent plants. They're like cactus, only without the spines. I love them!
stopping over from Mama Kats...what a fun bucket list! I visited an Amish community a few years ago and loved it...bought some really cool rugs and learned a lot about their lifestyle.ReplyDelete
Wow great bucket list! I have completed a few on your list, going to Spain, taken my kids to Disneyland, danced in the rain with my hubby (so cool), learned to sew in high school, roller blade (badly roadrashed) ha!,ReplyDelete
and last but not least I can BBQ anything (some burnt, some not) depends on my attention span at the time.
By the way (this is going to sound weird and I hope you don't think I sound snobberly, and you may already know this) but all cactus are succulents but not all succulents are cactus. The way to tell the difference between the spiny cacti and other types of prickly succulents is that cacti have areoles, or spine cushions. The spines of a cactus will grow only out of these spine cushions. It looks like a patch of cotton from which spines, flowers, and roots grow. While some succulents may have spines, they will not have areoles.
And now class that is our lesson for today! Hee hee!
Snobberly...no way! You should hear me when my friend calls a Calibrochoa a mini-Petunia! That's neat to know, because I just thought it was the pricklies that separated them! Thanks for the lesson! :)
Stopped by from Mama Kat's. I love #17! And 27 is so true for me too...I hope I can see my daughter get married to the man of her dreams one day.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing!
#1 would have been on mine, had I been able to finish it, before the ER and all the following shenanigans,
