Dawn

I was scrolling through a few of the blogs that I follow this morning and one post caught my eye, intrigued me and made me think a little.  Patty, over at Lather, Rinse, Clean had a post about her summer bucket list, and all the things she wanted to see, do and accomplish before fall sets in.  I thought it was an awesome idea, and a bit of a challenge to set those goals for yourself and strive to make them happen.

My actual bucket list can be found on Pinterest.  It has everything from exotic places I want to go see to some just off the wall crazy things I want to do.  You know, like hand some random person a briefcase and tell them quietly, 'you know what to do', before I smile and walk away.

This summer though, I have so many things on my list of to dos, that it's almost laughable.  I am however great with check lists, so maybe I'll get more done if I write them down and I can just check them off as they happen.


  • Start on the reclaim the yard from missile range project.  (check back Thursday for plans and other details)
  • Have a BBQ on the veranda for the 4th.  Entertain more in general.  I miss having people over.
  • Go fossil hunting.
  • Visit Kings Dominion.
  • Get the Minions to various Birthday Parties and other fun things they get invited to.
  • Spend an evening catching fireflies with my boys.
  • Have an evening picnic and watch the sunset with some wine.
  • Enjoy a winery tour, or three.
  • More kayaking!
  • From the King's birthday trip
  • Get out the supersoakers on a hot day and chase the minions around while drenching them from head to toe.
  • Spend a few evenings stargazing from the hot tub, with faux mojitos and margaritas in hand.
  • Finish the family room.
  • Tour Boldt Castle.
  • Enjoy the convertible on sunny days.
  • Go on an adult vacation.
  • Finish stripping and repainting the ugly furniture I've been working on.
  • Spend an evening at the drive-ins watching movies in the open air.
  • Go to the lake a few more times.
  • End the summer with a day trip to the York Fair.


What's on your list for the summer?

    This is a great idea, making a summer bucket list. I can't believe we're halfway through summer...I feel like I have so much left to accomplish! Stargazing from the hot tub sounds like fun.
