I have now been out of school for the summer for one calendar month! Tuesday, June 5 was my first day off. In some ways it’s hard to believe it’s already been a month and in other ways it feels like a long time.
I posted my original list here, but no need to click as I will recap them for you. I have added a few new things that I forgot. Did you make a summer bucket list? How many items have you checked off?
Here we go:
-Go to lake with my sister’s family – Yes, we did a short ride last Saturday but plan to do another one this Saturday. She lives 2 hours away and I don’t get to see her as much as I would like!
Have different people on our boat – Yes, we have had 2 couples, one family, and our niece and cousin out so far. We have done one time with just our family of 4 and several day dates for hub and I.
One of our couple friends below!
-Learn to make a new recipe – Yes, gruyere and asparagus tart on puff pastry!
-Read 20 books – No, I’m still not finding books that suck me in and life is too short to read bad books!
-Go to the pool by myself once – No, but I did go to my co-worker’s apartment pool with her. I did not join the pool this year so I would have to go to a public pool or use a friend’s name at the private pool that I like.
-Walk up to eat dinner at nearby restaurant – No – can I blame the heat?
-Do a boat brunch – No, we have done lunch and happy hour, though.
-Eat lunch poolside – Yes, kind of. It started storming!
-Drink coffee on the patio – Yes, almost every day!
-Go for at least one bike ride – Yes, to garage sales!
-Go to outdoor concerts – Yes, 3 free outdoor concerts so far!
-Go to farmer’s markets – No, not yet. I really need to research which one to try.
-Have a few dates with hub – Yes, boat, a couple of dinners, and a couple of movies.
-Celebrate hub’s birthday – Yes, we had a Mexican dinner at home and gave him gifts
-Celebrate father’s day – Yes, we went on the boat and did what he wanted.
-Shop locally – Yes! I have frequented my favorite local boutiques and consignment stores.
-Sit in a coffee shop – No, not yet. I need to decide which one to try.
-Call people I haven’t talked to in awhile – Yes! My dear cousin K was one phone call and other friends to set up dates to do things, mainly. I meant real phone calls and not texts, by the way.
-Invite friends to walk in parks – No – can I blame the heat?
-See lots of movies in the theater – Yes -so far Adrift, Ocean’s 8, Life of the Party, TAG
-Make myself stay up later and sleep in later – Yes – staying up until at least 10 and sleeping til 6:30 or 7 which is late for me
So, I would say I’m doing fairly well! Let me know how you are doing or any ideas you have for me?
