This Spring I Will… // Seasonal Wishlist

A few things I'd like to do this spring. // dreams-etc.com

1 // Branch out of my usual green and blue color palette when painting. As much as I love them, variety is the spice of life! Or so I’ve heard…

2 // Finally start the Anne of Green Gables series. (I’ve been saying I will for how many years now?)

3 // Pull out my pastels and colored pencils again. I’ve missed them.

4 // Finish a novel. And start another one.

5 // Bring my vision for illustrations for my poetry chapbook to life.

6 // Get outside more often.

7 // Bake something with lemon and blueberries. I don’t think I did this at all during spring or summer last year, so it definitely needs to happen!

8 // Cook a new dish. 

9 // Read a book a week. Hopefully!

10 // Plan an adventure. (I may have one in the works.)

WHAT WILL YOU DO THIS SPRING?

    Great list! It’s a good variety of being productive, treating yourself, and being creative! I like the idea of a seasonal wishlist.

      Thanks Emily! That’s what I was going for with the list. 🙂 I’ve already started working on my seasonal wishlist for the summer. A few things came to mind one day so I wrote them down.

    Those are all great goals! I am curious: by finish a novel and start a new one, do you mean you are writing a novel, or do you just mean you want to read one and start another? haha.

      Thanks! Finish a novel that I’m writing and start a new one. I’m hoping I’ll read more than one. 🙂

    Love the variety in your list! I’ve recently found The Miracle Morning and I’m committing to doing it practicing it for the month of April 🙂

      Thanks Theresa! I’ve heard really good things about that book. It was one of the Kindle daily deals sometime last week so I bought it. 🙂

    I too will get out more this spring and I too hope that I can start creating more art. I say I have for some time now and never do.

    Still haven’t read Anne of Green Gables. MY sister LOOOOVES them.

      We’ll both do it this spring! 🙂

      I haven’t read any of them either, but so many people love them! (Including my sister. :)) I’m looking forward to finally checking that off my list.

    Mmh, bake something with lemon and blueberries….that sounds so good! Love all of this! A lot of reading! Wish I had more time to read an actual book – I always get the audio books so I can knit while I “read”.

      I think that’s one of the things I’m most looking forward to! I need to make more time for reading actual books. I haven’t been diligent about that this year, but I need to. I love audiobooks for being able to do other things while “reading” too.

    I’m really into seasonal living and love that you make a seasonal wishlist. I’ve got a little spring bucket list I just posted on my blog, but I feel like I need to add bake something with lemon and blueberries on it. 🙂

    For your recipe you should make blueberry lemonade! It’s amazing. We made some last year on the blog and pretty much drank the whole gallon immediately.

    This Spring I’m hoping to write my PMP exam (finally) and I also want to get big into baking with my sourdough starter!

    Freshen up our porch, deck and make them “outdoor living” friendly. We didn’t spend enough time outside last year, and springtime is the best time to do the prep work, when it’s still nice and comfortable outside.

      Sounds like you have some great plans for spring! It’s definitely the best time to get some of those outside projects done. It’s not too hot yet! 🙂
