Winter Bucket List - Update #2
Welcome to Update #2 of how I'm doing on my 10 Things Winter Bucket List! Goodness, winter is rolling along here, though the sun is continuing to shine, allowing us to spend scads of time outdoors each day. Spring here will likely bring fog at some point, so I'm doing my best to make hay while that sun continues to shine!
And as always, I'm linking up with a group of other terrific bloggers to share Winter Bucket List updates, so be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to see who else is participating, and to visit their blogs for additional winter inspiration.
Update #2 for 10 Things On My Winter Bucket List
2. Go for a
In the interim, enjoy this amazing Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken that I made for the first time last year, and loved so much I've made it multiple times since. It's all about the balsamic vinegar, so don't cut corners and use the cheap stuff - quality counts here! Serve it over pasta and drizzle even more balsamic vinegar on top before serving . . . yummy!
4. Make hot cocoa with peppermint schnapps. Pending.
5. Attend the Palms Springs International Film Festival. Yes! Completed previously here.
7. Start taking tennis lessons. In Process. I've signed up for a series of Intermediate Tennis lessons that start up in early March. I am hoping that in the process of going through the classes I'll find someone interested in playing singles with me weekly, utilizing one of the many tennis courts in our neighborhood. Here's to a little, 'Game, Set, Match!' in my future!
8. Spend an evening reading by the fireplace. Yes! Completed previously here. And something I'm continuing to do now that we've installed recessed lighting in our family room, vastly improving the ability to read in there in the evening as a result.
Instead, we are working to catch as many nominated documentaries and foreign films as we can. Of the list of nominated documentaries below we've seen Icarus, which is absolutely excellent and currently streaming on Netflix, and plan to watch Abacus: Small Enough to Jail tonight, which is available for streaming free via Amazon Prime.
Of the list of foreign film nominees we've seen The Insult and Loveless, which I wrote about in my January In A Sentence A Day post here. Based on reviews, would love to see A Fantastic Woman, but will let the others go based on what I read about each online. That doggone graphic sex/violence thing . . . why are movie makers so enamored with filling their films with them???
