Summer Happiness

Summer – Here We Come!

Yesterday really inspired me to try and take advantage of this summer by getting out and about and doing things rather than just cocooning myself in the house. When I saw this post over at Kim’s page, I remembered I had done something similar last year and figured I’d go ahead and give it another shot. While I’d love to accomplish all of these things, I’m not steadfast in doing so. Rather, this just serves as a guide so that when we’re bored or looking for things to do, I can consult this here Bucket List and we can be off and running.

Also, a side note – I see people who still refer to the season as Spring and it just makes me laugh. I know we’re “technically” still in the Springtime but here in the South, the humidity starts setting in toward the end of April and makes me feel like we’re in the thick of Summer before May has even approached. It always hot, always sticky and the heat is so thick it takes your breath away. And yes, it’s nothing compared to what it’s going to feel like in the depth of July or August but it’s certainly not what my brain thinks of as “Spring!”

Anyway, I do want to try and accomplish as many of these as possible. Last year’s successes were kind of dismal. But not this year – this year, I am new person, a new not so lazy person. Hopefully, I’ll be able to see I marked all of these off the lists by September.

Without further adieu, here’s my Summer Bucket List:

  1. Regular dog park visit with Sammy & Baxter
  2. Beach days!
  3. Take Sammy & Baxter to the beach
  4. Drive-in
