I am a romantic–hopelessly romantic. What can I say?

This is the continuation of my bucket list.

  • 15.    Play handbells-and do it well.
  • 14.    Learn to paint with watercolor (well).
  • 13.    Canadian rail journey with the love of my life.
  • 12.    Have enough money to help those who are without and not think about how much something costs.
  • 11.    Finish ALL of my to-do lists.
  • 10.    Visit Abu Simbel (I’ve wanted to visit since I was 7).
  • 9.      Learn to tat and do it well.
  • 8.      Visit Switzerland and Austria.
  • 7.      Alaskan cruise with the love of my life.
  • 6.      See my girls married & happy.
That romantic part of me would like to vacation with the love of my life on an Alaskan cruise and take a rail journey (sleeping on the train) through Canada. As for the Abu Simbel temples, I remember the National Geographic magazine issue that featured the removal of the temples to higher ground due to the Aswan Dam construction. I think the issue came out in 1966 but I did not get really interested until the next year.
Yes, I can do these other things without the love of my life, but there are some things that I want to save just for the two of us. And, if things don’t work out with my present situation, I will be taking applications…(I am half-way kidding 🙂 ).
Happy Gardening in all of your adventures!
