Even though summer began a few weeks ago, I feel like I'm just starting to find my summer groove. I can definitely tell that this summer is going to fly by, with our weekends quickly filling up with visitors, events, projects, and a road trip later in August. Before we know it, Jared will be back in school and summer will be just about over.
So...I'm making this list so that I can remember some things that I want to do to savor this summer, our first summer in our house! (You'll notice that I'm carrying over a few things from my spring manifesto- either I didn't get to them, or I just want to keep doing them!).
:: Take some evening bike rides in search of treats (I'm thinking of this spot, and this one too).
:: Swim in at least one new lake (and old ones too).
:: Keep working on my wardrobe challenge (I have made progress and will share soon!).
:: Make lemonade, limeade, and other fun summery beverages (suggestions welcome!).
:: Have a picnic.
:: Sleep outdoors.
:: Be lazy.
:: Eat food straight out of the garden.
:: Try some new preserving recipes (this weekend I'm doing medicinal honey) and dry as many of my herbs as possible.
What's on your list for this summer?
psssst: if you're reading this in a reader click on over to see my new summer header, it's pretty!
