Turning 60

Branching Out

December 10th, 2014 I turned 60! I have decided to accomplish 60 things this year.

I created a list. The things on the list came to me selectively. Some, because I’ve always wanted to do them and never did, like riding a zip line. Others, because it will bring me back to a time when I use to do these things, like sewing. And others, just for the fun of it, like going on a picnic.

I decided on a blog rather then keep a diary because like my father, I like to tell stories. Stories are meant to be shared. Sometimes the stories will be stretched but they will all be true. The things on this list will get done in no specific order and each will be described in a separate blog.

I hope my blog will convey my experiences of accomplishing the 60 things on my list to family and friends and whoever enjoys a good story. It is meant to be fun and it is a birthday gift to myself.

So stay tuned, sit back and enjoy the adventure.

  1. Charline, quelle bonne idée. J’ai bien hâte de lire ton blog. Je suis certaine que tu auras un très bonne année et lots of fun ticking off the items on your list. As Paulette said and perhaps at my ripe old age, I can be with you with at least one “item”. Big hugs Diane


  2. Thank you for including us in your updates. Its a great idea and it will be fun to watch. Do we get a sneak peek at the list or is it something we find out after each task is completed?
