So yesterday was the first official day of summer, even though it’s been crazy-hot in Austin for quite some time. I’m thinking I need a Summer List of things I want to do before the autumn comes around again.

  • Eat lots of snow cones
  • Make ice cream and sorbet at home
  • Make dark and stormys at home
  • Go swimming
  • Go to the movies
  • Use my Instax camera
  • Ride on a boat
  • Go dancing
  • Read a lot of books
  • Start crafting – carving stamps, embroidering, bookbinding
  • Make sun tea
  • Work on my recipe card collection
  • Write letters
  • Find new music
  • Re-learn to draw
  • Take more photos of people
  • Eat ripe watermelon and cantaloupe
  • Buy a bike
  • Start taking yoga classes again
  • Get two tattoos

What’s on your summer list?

  1. I want to get a slip n slide for this summer! My husband and I have been laughing at the thought of us throwing our bodies down at the ground hoping to slide down wet plastic. I will let you know how that works out!

    1. Omigosh! That sounds awesome – we used to have one when I was a kid and I loved it, but you’re right, as an adult I can only imagine the flop of my belly on the ground, and the soreness afterward. 🙂 Do let me know how it goes…

  2. I love this list. I hope you get to do it all.
