Sunday Coffee – Spring Forward

Here we go again! These are my seasonal “bucket list” goals for spring. They start today, the first day of “spring forward” into the wonderful Daylight Savings Time, and go through May 15th for a total of nine weeks. I’ve gone really light on these, with only twelve goals (and some of those are conditional).

(I am SO BAD at drawing people, ha!)

Buy new pajamas: I’ve been wearing my current sets of spring/summer/fall pajamas (which I wear for almost all of winter, too, because it’s just hot here!) for at least three or four years now. It’s really time to replace them!

Try out one of my bellydancing workout videos: I have lots of these (physical and bookmarked online) and I think they’d be fun to do, but I never think to try them! So on the list it goes.

Meet up with an old friend: This is an “only if possible” goal re: covid.

Buy a new alarm clock: I don’t use the alarm on my alarm clock, but I do like being able to see the time at night when I wake up and it’s still dark. My current alarm clock is something like 17/18 years old. It’s falling apart and periodically does weird, possessed things because all the wiring is going bad. But it’s really hard to find a current-day alarm clock with red numbers rather than LED blue (which affects wakefulness).

Listen to the Hamilton soundtrack: I’m probably the last person in the world that has never listened to Hamilton. I’m not really a fan of musicals, but I’m enjoying the new style of them more and more, and I’d like to try this one out. Fingers crossed!

Buy a denim sundress: I love denim dresses and especially sundresses, so I’m going to try hard to find one that fits me this year!

Listen to the Murdoch Mysteries podcast: Given how obsessed with Murdoch Mysteries I’ve been, this one should be easy!

Listen to the Unsolved Mysteries podcast: Ditto! I only found out this existed two weeks ago!

Make something with macrame: My newest obsession!

Reach 175 miles for the year: Beginning at 93 miles – this one will be tough!

Attempt C25K: I got all the way through the program last year and eventually went on to run a full 5K, but since then I’ve lost a lot of fitness and additionally gained a lot of weight, so I’m basically starting all over again. This is an “if my foot/hip/weight will let me” goal.

Finish my YWA backlog: Mostly this is from the Breath program in January, plus a few others.

Here we go!

  1. I haven’t listened to Hamilton either. I listened to a bit, and gave up. I am really, really into both musicals and American history, so it should have been made for me, but I just do not like hip-hop!

      I don’t mind hip-hop, but I can’t stand traditional musicals! I’m glad the style is changing. The Greatest Showman is one of my favorites of all time, and I love the music in that. So maybe I’ll enjoy Hamilton as well.

    I bought a fairly cheap alarm clock that you can cycle through many LED colors. There are also like six brightness levels which is more than usual so I have it on the dimmest at night and brighter during the day. It’s nice that someone is improving the humble alarm clock!
