List Love Book Club: The Golden Years

Each Week ElleinadspirA Place to Share and I will be working our way through the Listography 2011 Book with a rotating Link Part-tay! To find the list of the years topics, check out the Listography Link above. Today’s Topic: List how you would like to spend time when you’re a senior citizen

Yay! This is not just a great topic, it's also the subject of many random daydreams.

  1. Visiting my kick-ass son who is a Top Chef and has at least one even more kick-ass child
  2. Traveling everywhere
  3. Driving a mini-cooper. A bumble bee yellow one. All electric hopefully.
  4. Living in a loft apartment (I mean obviously, your knees go as you get older, no more stairs!)
  5. Patronizing the arts (in my daydreams I am not just retired, I am also wealthy)
  6. Dancing tango
  7. Cooking through my 30th-something cookbook project
  8. Enjoying the memories of having completed large chunks of stuff on my list and dreaming up new ones!
  9. Sleeping in everyday
  10. Doing things that make young people say "I hope when I'm your age..."

Am I the only one who fantasizes about retirement? I do my best to enjoy each moment and stage in life but living as chronic-overplanner-ahead is in my nature. I'm the only one left with the link so feel free to hitch yourself to this wagon.

PS-This is the last week of the LIst Love Book Club but (obviously) not that last list because I'm working on some New Years resolutions!
