Its All About Time

I’ve about had it with this year. Let’s think about next spring. Let’s dream dreams and make plans. Heck, maybe the Canadian border will even be open.

I realize I’m getting well ahead of myself here, but I’m betting a lot of my followers are also, in one way or another, looking forward to putting 2020 behind them.

So … what are your plans for spring? Here’s mine!

Time is finite. The older I get, the more crystal clear this notion becomes. I am cautiously hopeful that 2021 might be a little better than this current year, but only time will tell.

Towards that end, I’m going to start creating a wish list of places I’d like to visit and things I want to do while I still have the time.

Being realistic, I admit that some of my “Bucket List” items aren’t likely to happen in the coming year. It might take longer, and some may not come to fruition at all – but seriously, if I don’t even TRY, I’ve got no one to blame but myself.

Funny, isn’t it? When you are young, you might have a 5-year plan, a 10-year plan and then a long-term plan … and you feel like you have all the time in the world.

Right this minute, I feel like I can optimistically work on a 1-year plan and maybe a 5-year plan if I’m lucky. But long-term? Well, “long-term” seems to take on a whole different meaning after you hit 70. Especially in the midst of a world-wide pandemic.

I have a new motto this year …

I have all winter to come up with a new plan. The goal is still to get behind the wheel of my RV and drive. Who knows where I’ll end up.

In the meantime, as I tweak both my Bucket List and daydreams of future travel, I’ll leave you with this last quote.

Tick tock. Tick tock.

I’m a RV Sometimer (less than full time, but more than a weekend warrior) living in Alaska, with dreams of seeing the country in my RV. I am 70 years old and married, but my husband isn’t a fan of RV travel, so my journeys are mostly solo except for my navigators; dachshunds Baxter & Rhonda. I’m also a spinner of tales - and a spinner of yarn (my other passion). My spinning wheel, along with the dogs, go along on all my travels. I look forward to sharing my stories, including photos and videos, with you.
