Winter bucket list

I’m not the biggest fan of winter but at 35 I need to accept it arrives each year and I need to make the most of it.  So I compiled a bucket list of things to warm up the next few months.

  • Go back to the Quiver trees.  We went the weekend before last and it was amazing.  Now we want to go back and spend more time there – hopefully the weather will be better with a bit more sun.
  • Have a weekend in Wilderness. Was there for Easter and it seems so long ago.  I love that place.
  • Visit the market in Wilderness again
  • Continue going to gym – winter is not an excuse!
  • Cycle 45 km’s and increase speed from previous cycle
  • Go to a class offered by the gym instead of only using the treadmill
  • Do a proper winter shop. Stock up on spencers and thick stockings.  Actually make a list so I don’t return with a pair of sandals on sale.
  • Make soup from scratch
  • Read both “The power of now” by Eckhart Tolle or “The life-changing magic of tidying up” by Marie Kondo and put into practice
  • Keep up with my book goals – I’m aiming to have read 40 by the end of the year
  • Try a new recipe – savoury or sweet
  • Say no to things that don’t interest hubby and I.  Our weekends are precious and I’m putting us first.

Do you have a seasonal bucket list?  If so, what is on it?

    Even though our winter just ended and our spring is starting, I feel your pain. Winter is tough. I have a hard time finding the motivation to go to the gym in the winter, too. Who wants to bundle up and trudge through the snow to go work out and get all sweaty?! I also have a goal of going to classes at the gym instead of just using the machines. We spend a lot of money on our membership and I feel like we’re not taking enough advantage of it.

      It feels like such an effort to workout in winter. We don’t get snow like you do (if it is very cold we get a bit on mountains) but going out in the cold and rain to go to gym takes determination!
      We have some great classes at our gym and I need to make use of them!

    Those are some great things to do, especially trying new recipes, I find I like to do that when it’s colder out as well! You’ll have to share if you come up with any good ones!

      Will do! I used to love baking in winter because the whole kitchen would be warm and cosy and smell so good! There are positives to winter and I’m determined to enjoy it.

      I always do this! I have so much more summer clothes and I know I’ll go looking for sensible warm clothes and come home with a floral dress or another pair of slip slops haha!
      That is so true – time is non-renewable. It is something I’ve been thinking of alot lately. I look back and feel I’ve spent far too much precious time doing stuff because I felt obliged to. Weekends can be eaten up far too quickly and I need to say no more.

      Yes – totally agree – spring and summer bucket lists seem easier to put together. I’m hoping to tick lots off and enjoy the colder weather more this year.

    I always have to stop and think and remember that you’re on the southern hemisphere… LOL … we’re so used to thinking of winter in November, December, January… 🙂

    I love soups in the winter. I could make stews/soups all winter long

      I know! I’m used to thinking of our coldest months as May, June, July and our hottest ones is around Christmas and New Year when you all are having your winter.

      I’m really into soups right now – butternut is my favourite – but I buy it ready-made and want to try making it from scratch.
