A rainy Sunday afternoon

Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

-Susan Ertz

Inspired by recent losses and by Ryssee's bucket-list meme, I am going to attempt to draft my own bucket list of sorts. It's a challenge for me, as my current wish list is focussed on desired improvements to my crumbling dwelling. If I look at the bigger picture, however, I wonder if I can come up with more worthwhile ambitions. I have to be realistic; I am someone who has trouble crossing items off my daily to-do list, so achieving any of the goals on a bucket list is unlikely. Still, they say it's good to have dreams.

For now, the list will have to wait. I am currently preoccupied by the much smaller picture, and it is my aim this rainy Sunday afternoon to tidy the dining room. Hey, I've got to start somewhere.
