25 Things –Summer Bucket List Edition

Bucket lists have been on my mind lately. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about how much I want to experience in life and how little time there is to get it all done. The Trans Siberian Railroad, Antarctica, Machu Picchu, The Great Wall… those are all high up on my travel bucket list.

I’ve crossed a few things off by traveling to Australia (planning to get back there ASAP). However, I realized that I need to stop mooning over vacation and get on with enjoying life here.

Just this week, I’ve read two blog posts on creating a summer bucket list… one over on Trailer Trash Glam and one on Enjoying the Small Things, who also happens to be doing a swimsuit giveaway

Perfect timing for me to get my act together and come back to reality.

Since I’m on a list making rampage lately, I’ll offer my own Summer Bucket list:
  • Go peach/apple/raspberry/blackberry picking
  • Take an impromptu trip to the beach
  • Visit a farmers market
  • Go crabbing
  • Learn how to SCUBA dive
  • Send Aunt Nancy & Uncle Darryl a Thank You basket
  • Send Sally & Chris (our NZ people) a Thank You basket
  • Find frames for koala and lorikeet photos – then hang them
  • Clean up front garden and plant perennials
  • Re-upholster dining room chairs
  • Have a picnic at Martinak
  • Make marshmallows from scratch (stole this from TTG – been wanting to do this for awhile)
  • Have rooster for dinner
  • Do the adult ropes challenge course at Tuckahoe
  • Go kayaking
  • Climb the rock wall at the Y
  • Swim 1000 yards
  • Host a dinner party
  • Come up with a date, menu & budget for yearly fall party
  • Make a plan for the backyard
  • Build a new fire pit
  • Finish fencing backyard
  • Go fishing
  • Design egg cartons to sell/giveaway eggs
  • Complete two weeks of Couch25K (I’m aiming low)
So that's my summer bucket list... what's on yours? Kelly, I'll be waiting to read your summer bucket list next. :)
