List of activities – meme

I saw both Theresa and Steve had completed this meme and posted their results. I should be finishing packing but I thought I would take a break and go through this list of activities.As Steve said “The idea is simple. A list of 100 activities trails off almost into infinity. Be patient. Read. Learn.

The items in bold are the ones I have done; the items in italics are things I would like to do; the items in italics with an * are things I really want to do. And then there are the items in regular font — haven’t done, don’t care to.

So, here goes. Remember, there are 100.
