63+ Things to Do Before I am 64
Wow, when I started the list of what I want to change, accomplish, etc. during the year 2012 there were several things that came to mind.  Do I want to focus on the typical New Year Resolutions that seem to get lost by the end of January, make a list of challenges that I want to meet, or set goals for the coming year.  Then I saw someone else doing the list of what to accomplish by my next birthday.  This works for me as I have almost the entire year to get it done. 
So, here is the beginning of my list of 63+ to get done by 64.  I made it 63+ because my list continues to grow! I am only starting with a few on the list and will add to it often.
1.     Start a new devotion series for boys (my 3 grandsons that live with us) at night
2.     Make new business cards
3.     Lose a pound a week for the next year (that would make 52# in a year—and a much healthier me.
4.     Blog at least 2 times each week or more!
5.     Keep my FB page updated
6.     Groom my dogs daily
7.     Start a daily exercise program
8.     Get my list of shows done by the end of January
9.     Plant trees along our long driveway
10.                       Finish log rail fence around front yard
11.                       Put new RAKU kiln in kiln yard area
And the list shall go on and on but on another day!


  1. Wow that's a long list. I can only concentrate on one or two things at a time. Right now I'm trying to concentrate on organizing my dinner menus on a weekly basis rather than just winging it.

  2. Wow, Donna! You are an inpiration! I didn't make any resolutions or plans for the year...just trying to get through one day at a know why...Thank you again for your kindness and caring heart.

  3. Donna you made me laugh out loud, thats quite a started...may God help you and be by your side.♥

  4. This is a great idea and a great list! Makes me start thinking of all the things I want to do before my next brithday as well!

  5. Bless your heart having 3 grandsons living with you. They must keep you very busy. We had our granddaughter last year, and it was an eye opener. I had forgotten how much time raising a family takes. My birthday is only a couple of months away, but I have a short list of things I would like to accomplish by then.

  6. I'm so glad to see that you have made yourself a good list and blogged about it. It will help you to stay motivated while seeing other people encourage you through. God bless in all that you do!

  7. Awesome list! You are an inspiration!

  8. You have a great list. I need to add several of those to my list but I can only handle a couple at a time. My last year (I turned 40), I wanted to loose wanted to get down to my "healthy" weight. I lost 24lbs. I still need to lose 10lbs. but I feel so much better. I finally feel comfortable in my own skin. I started making healthy choices, and hope that the other 10 will eventually melt off. I would like to hear more about your devotions for your grandsons.

  9. Planting trees —then see them grow...! :)
    Much joy and steadfastness to you, Donna!

  10. This was a good eye opener for me.. Glad to have read it!
    Blessings my friend!
