This was my summer bucket list that I wrote with the children on June 24, 2019.
Walk on the beach- Yes i got to walk on French Beach which was new to me.
Read on my patio- have definitely done a lot of that, and even knitted on my deck. I have so enjoyed having my four pots of plants to look at:) I need to add some Fall plants so I can keep this going.
Go trail running- did lots of this with the clinic I took and by myself.
Go on a road trip – to Sointulla and Alert Bay
Go to Sechelt- had an absolute fabulous time with my running buddies.
Make ice cream
Go to Canada Day celebrations- had a great day with friends
Stay in bed drinking tea- definitely did lots of this!
Bake on rainy days- I didn’t bake a lot because I was trying to be super healthy, but I did manage to get my Sally’s Baking Challenge successfully completed.
Can fruit – I didn’t can any plain fruit, but definitely made and canned a lot of jam
Pick berries- I bought my raspberries this year, but did get out to pick some blackberries
Go to Seattle- had a great time with my friends
Visit my brother- I did get a quick visit in, but there’s never enough time with family.
Watch Gus play football- not yet as he hasn’t had a game yet and he told me practice is really boring
Workout lots- definitely did a lot of running, but not as many weight workouts as I would have liked.
Have a picnic
Go on a hike- finally got to enjoy Westwood Lake
Meet friends for fun stuff- did lots of stuff with a variety of friends
Walk along Main Street- I did this right away this summer with my friend
Explore Commercial Drive
Go on a bike ride-my friends can talk me into doing anything
Use my herbs – I used lots of my herbs in my manicotti
Go for ice cream- found my new favourite called Vashti Rose
Visit new yarn and book stores – Oh I definitely covered this goal as I have now visited every yarn store on Vancouver Island and a post will be coming out solely about this… mainly so I can remember why to visit each one
Try a new restaurant – Oh I found three awesome new restaurants on Vancouver Island that offered gluten free and dairy free. I had seafood, chinese and an awesome brunch.
Help on my parent’s house – nope not a thing because it was hanging in the air
Play with Anna’s kids at the park – I had a couple of awesome visits, but there’s never enough time with these cuties!
Work on my cross stitch – didn’t even touch the bag:(
Make my Christmas presents – I had all of the supplies and yet didn’t do any, so figure I need to come up with a different idea
Watch movies- watched a lot of movies while dogsitting for my brother this last weekend. What else can you do with a dog permanently attached to you?
Check out a new library – nope:( I don’t know what it is that when I am out with others, they won’t let me into libraries or bookstores ( do you think I have a problem???) LOL
Go shopping – oh I definitely shopped my way through the summer, and finished with a big back to school shopping trip where I found 22 new things to wear to school! I have already worn 4, but need to get rid of another 14 to keep my closet in stasis.
Well that’s a pretty good look at my summer and I’m happy with how much I accomplished:)
