Hip hooray for another summer (yay!). Because I’m a list-making sort of person, I decided a summer bucket list was in order. This isn’t likely a generic, appeal-to-everyone summer bucket list, but it’s what I hope to do. And maybe it will inspire you to come up with your own list.
Lists help me get things accomplished. I like that whole check mark thing.
So here ya go, my summer bucket list…
— Go to a drive-in. In Arkansas, there are only three remaining open drive-ins including the 112 Drive-In in Fayetteville. I’ve been planning to go since I moved here. This summer, I’m going, even though that will involve staying up past my bedtime.
— Host a porch party. Porch parties were the norm in our Dallas neighborhood. We’re gonna have one here.
— Grill lobster. I’ve never done this which is crazy because I love lobster.
— Go to the Shiloh Museum in Springdale. Yep.
— Hike on a new-to-me trail. Sooner rather than later.
— Ditch the blow dryer. My hair will be happy.
— Spike a watermelon. There’s one in my kitchen waiting…
— Take real pictures with a camera. CrazytalkIknow.
— Read something I wouldn’t normally read.
—Attend a small country church service. Yes, like Boon Chapel.
— Go to a library somewhere once a week. I write best surrounded by lots of books.
— Donate a big load of stuff to the Salvation Army or similar place.
Alrighty. I showed you my list, now you show me yours.
