I love making lists! But even more than that what I love most is crossing items off of my lists. While I have created impossible lists for myself that I may never complete I feel that as long as I am able to cross one or two things off of the lists every once in a while then I am making great progress. My lists include 100 Great Books to Read, Watching all of the movies that either won or were nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award, and the 1000 Places to See Before I Die. That last one I credit to the book that was written about those places, but since the majority of places in the list are available to the public, I figure it is for common use.
I also collect cook books and cooking magazines. My goal is to cook every recipe in every cook book I own, as well as all of the recipes I fervently tear out of the magazines.
While I have many interests my favorite activities are ones that I can enjoy from the comfort of my couch. So this blog will focus on the books and movies lists. Also, in these harsh economic times reading and watching movies is more logistically possible than traveling to fabulous locations or cooking recipes requiring high priced ingredients. However, I will throw in a recipe now and then and hopefully a trip or two (fingers crossed!)
And while you might think I could be making much better use of my time, please know that crossing things off of my lists gives me great pleasure and is all that I am motivated to do at this time!
I welcome you to join me on my journey to learn more, eat better, travel the world, and make better use of my time on the couch!
