SWEET SOUDNS OF SUMMER: A PERSONAL TO DO LIST

Personal

 

If you know me (or have ever shared a space with me), I am a massive list maker. I do indeed have a lists of lists. To do lists. Blogs to write lists. Photos to edit lists. Places to visit list. I could go on and on, but I am sure you get the drift.

 

I think it is important to write lists; for me, they are my journals. It’s true–every list reveals some hope or wish I have.My lists are a big sign of what my deep down dreams are, and it is so nice to have then written down not at a memory, but rather where they can become a catalyst for action and change.

 

I like to try to create a list for every season of life, and that’s what this post is for: This is to create my bucket list for Summer 2018.

 

[   ] FINISH. MY. THESIS. This two-year labor of love HAS to be done this summer. AS much as I have loved it, we need to move on.

[   ] Visit Minnesota’s  largest candy store in Jordan. Rumor has it they also have quite a soda selection, which I could be all about (I am loyal to Coca Cola, but that doesn’t mean I can’t try something new once in a while).

[   ] Attend one Twins game. I have purchased tickets, so this one is looking good.

[   ] Redo my office. As much as I have loved the orange, it is time for a change (plus, I need a new desk, so I may as well go all out).

[   ] Visit three of the 26 Minnesota Historical Society sites.  My top choice? The Charles A. Lindbergh House, which is where one of my awesome friends works.

[   ] Leave the state.

[   ] Can…something. Maybe pickles? Jam, perhaps. Or even jelly (my little crabapple tree is loaded down already, and I do very much enjoy crabapple jelly).

[   ] Have a Betty’s Pies pie. This is a summer given around these parts.

[   ] Stand-up paddle board. This is the perennial summer goal, so maybe this will be the year I actually can cross it off.

[   ] Go to a movie in a theatre. It’s been too long since I enjoyed a big bag of popcorn and a Cherry Coke.

[   ] Make ice cream. I don’t garden, I herb…and I would love to make a sweet-and-frozen savory something. Strawberry-basil ice cream, watermelon mint sorbet, even a frozen rosemary lemonade would do.

 

So with the official day of summer just a couple of days away, this is my summer objectives for this year. Wish me luck–and stay tuned for my progress (as well the the photos and maybe a recipe or two as proof)!
