The Summer List.

Well here it is. Spring semester is over and for those who mark seasons by their school schedules, it is now summer.  I am taking summer classes, so it isn't quite as fabulous as it is for others but I am enjoying it just the same.  The weather has been more enjoyable lately and we're even hosting a BBQ this weekend in celebration of our move and to celebrate the beginning of a great time.

I saw on Fit Foodie Finds a Summer list of sorts and I thought I should make my own.  Goals for the summer and things that I just want to do in my spare time.  Here is what I have come up with.

1.  Walk.  Every single darn day.  It is so pretty here, there is no reason to not take at least a half hour jaunt  to enjoy the pretty flowers and greenery.  Plus, I could use the extra exercise.

2.  Learn how to garden.  Even if it's just a few little potted plants, I need to hone this skill.  I just hope the squirrel doesn't eat all the green stuff and leave my plants to nothing.

3.  Feel good in my swimsuit (and shorts).  I stole this one from Fit Foodie Finds.  Every Spring I eat too much which leads to a poor self-esteem in Summer clothing.  I am bound and determined to feel good in my swimsuit and feel capable of putting on a pair of shorts, which was not possible last Summer.  The varicose veins sure don't help, but I figure if I can tan up enough they aren't as visible.  I refuse to let my self-esteem and laziness get in the way of cooling off this Summer.

4.  Get up before 10a.m.  Until June 25th, this won't be a problem since I have class at 8:30a.m. every day.  But last Summer, since I had no job and nothing to do I pretty much slept until 10:30a.m. or even as last as noon every single day.  I will not waste my mornings this year, no sirree.

5.  Enjoy time.  Take advantage of the cool evenings.  Relax.  Read books.  Sew.  Write.  Do all the things I want to do in my spare time when I have the spare time.  Don't waste it.


  1. I'd love to have the motivation to walk everyday. Overall, this is a great list though. I may take a few of the suggestions to heart. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks! Unfortunately, the only thing I have barely succeeded in doing is waking up before 10am. I guess I walk or bike to school almost everyday but it's not quite the same. Thank goodness summer break lasts until the end of August!


Your comments make my day even brighter and happier than it already was. I just love hearing what you have to say!
