Give Me Five Monday – Things I would like to do again

Monday, August 4th, 2008

Becca, of BeccA’s Buzz says:

The ‘Give Me Five’ Monday meme is designed to share fun information with each other in a simple short list! Here’s how it works. Each week, I will put out a random topic from my list of topics and you share 5 answers of your choice on the given topic and link back here! You can add photos, links or stories or just a simple list of your own of 5 things that relate to the topic as it pertains to you and your life experiences. It doesn’t have to be in any order of importance unless otherwise specified.

Give Me Five things you haven’t done in a long time that you would like to do again.

  • I would like to join an exercise class again. Kind of. Sort of. The thing that stops me is the amount of time required to drive to the gym, participate in class, drive home again, and then, usually, the extra time I spend when I think of errands to run while I’m in town. Actual class participation I found to be so much fun. Ten years ago I participated three mornings a week in a step aerobics plus weight-bearing exercise class.
  • I would like to do some easy hiking. Here again, with busy family life, taking the time to get away to do hiking doesn’t happen often. This usually happens only once a year during our vacation to Northern California.
  • I would like to practice the acoustic guitar and the soprano recorder again. To do well at all, I would need to practice these instruments consistently. Currently, my main extracurricular activity is writing for my blog, so this probably won’t happen anytime soon.
  • Participate in a Scottish Country Dancing class again, or learn line dancing. This past Saturday, we went to a Lebanese wedding reception, and the dancing was SO FUN! Now, there’s a way to get exercise, and have lots of fun at the same time.
  • I haven’t done any canning in a long while. I would most enjoy doing some fermented pickles. I would like to make some chutney also. I only want to can specialty items, because time is too precious to can items that we can easily afford.
