10 on Tuesday

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  For those of you who celebrate this day (I have friends who call this the "High Holy Day") enjoy the festivities!

In the meantime, Carole asked us to list 10 Things I Would Buy If I Found A Pot Of Gold. We are assuming this is a huge pot, correct?  

1. Pay off my parents mortgages. They have had a rough 6 months and they deserve less stress. They can even have a vacation home if they want too. 
2. A new house for me. But nothing huge. A place with the same view, a little more land, and needing NO work. 
3. College tuition for Nicole. She's been lucky so far and has kept her cost down but that's coming to an end next semester. 
4. New cars for all. Nothing fancy. Just newer models of what we have. 
5. A little cabin in the woods. A little place to just go and unplug on the weekends. 
6. My daughters friend is working at an orphanage in Haiti. I was shocked to hear that education is something families have to pay for. I would make a large donation so that many could be educated. 
7. Sheep!! I don't want a farm - I don't have it in me to be a farmer. I know that about myself. But I would love having somebody else keep my sheep for me. I could visit them and enjoy their fleece. 
8. We are going on a few vacations!  We shall start in Italy and go from there. 
9. New camera. I'm not sure which one but it would be the latest and greatest. And classes to go along with it. 
10. Investments.  That way it could keep on growin!

And you thought I was going to buy yarn didn't you?

So what would you do with your pot of gold?

Great list! We buy yarn all the time, so why not spend the new found money on something different, right? Here's to a meet up in Italy!

Ha, you could buy me sheep and I would take care of them for you and then you could teach me to spin. :)

I love the idea of sheep...especially if someone else is taking care of them!

What fun answers!

Carole Julius said...

Good thing you found a dumpster of gold and not just a pot of gold!

Vicki Knitorious said...

Smart, smart, smart!! I'll meet you in Italy, too!!

Chrisknits said...

going to do a quick post on it myself on the blog. Great fun!

Patty said...

What fun we're all going to have in Italy! And the cabin in the woods...yes!

I like your list! I am supportive of funding education for my kid and helping others less fortunate. We rent an apartment and I would definitely add some real estate, but buying in san francisco, i'd probably need 2 pots of gold ;)

Ahh the daydreams!
