Posts Tagged ‘Summer Fun List’

Astronomically speaking, today marks the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere which means it is the first day of summer. On this day, we will experience the longest duration of sunlight because the Sun reachest its highest point in the sky. I love the summertime, but I am not a fan of extreme heat. In my neck of the woods, it is as hot as Hades! To beat the heat, I created a Summer Fun List which is already in full swing. As you know, dear reader, I love a list, especially a list with activities that brings me joy.

The folks over at It’s A Charming Life, Lindsay and Jonas, created a list of summer activities for a calm and relaxing summer which I have tacked onto my summer fun list for an even more joyful experience this season. I started following Lindsay and Jonas last summer and recently became a patron of theirs on Patreon. I love their simple lifestyle in the Sleepy Hollow countryside.

Summertime is a wonderful time to go on vacation, get together with family and friends, or get physically fit; however, it is also the perfect time to slow down and enjoy the lazy days of the summer season.

I encourage you, dear reader, to watch Lindsay and Jonas’s short video, “10 Relaxing Ways To Enjoy Summer | Slow Living Bucket List” for some ideas of how to have a joyfully relaxing summer.

The sun is blazing, the birds are chirping, and the flowers are lifting their faces up towards the sky. Today is the first day of summer, and I am filled with delight at the prospect of what this new day will bring my way. What are your summer plans, dear reader? Happiness!

Today is the last day of May, and it is exciting to think about all of my summer plans spread over the next three months. This will be my first summer in quite some time that I do not have to return to school at the end of July. Oh, what JOY!

June will be packed with plans and procedures. July through Labor Day will afford me more downtime, which will allow for more fun projects to do around the house and to cross items off my 22 for 2022 list. So, here is a little snapshot of what I am planning for this summer.

JUNE

  • Engagement Party for my niece Kaitlyn and her fiancé Marc
  • The Audubon Croppers (TAC) Scrapbooking Event with my scrapbooking gal pals
  • Trip to New York City with Andrew
  • Saenger Theatre in New Orleans to see Hamilton
  • Year of King Project with Kelsi (“The Mist” and “1408”)
  • Slasher Movie Marathon with Kelsi

JULY

  • Gardening (front of the house)
  • Sprucing up the Front Porch
  • Home Office Makeover
  • Year of King Project with Kelsi (It)

AUGUST

  • Work on my YouTube Channel (hoping to launch after Labor Day)
  • Year of King Project with Kelsi (Cujo)
  • Audition for The Jungle Book at the Columbia Theatre

Of course, this list contains the highlights of my summer plans. I will also be reading, blogging, scrapbooking, hanging out with friends and family, going to the movies, and meeting one evening each month with my book club. I am always up for adventures that may spring up throughout the summer.

In addition to having fun this summer, I also have to make time for self-care. I have scheduled two procedures in June: a colonoscopy and an implant to replace the fractured tooth I had pulled back in July 2020. I also need to schedule my mammogram and other doctor appointments between July and Labor Day. While these appointments are not necessarily fun, they are necessary for me to have fun.

Tomorrow starts clean eating and exercising for me. After months of neglect, I hope my body does not go into shock. HA! I want to get back to my daily walking habit. I have missed it immensely and thoroughly enjoy my walks.

Oh, how I am looking forward to this summer! What will your summer look like this year, dear reader? I hope whatever you choose to do, it will include some fun and relaxation. Happiness!

School’s out for the summer, and I could not be happier. My summer vacation has officially started and will last until the end of July.

I have listed the highlights of my summer plans. However, I am definitely open to other activities that may crop up throughout the summer, such as visiting the beautiful animals at the Audubon Zoo, working on my tan at the beach, or taking a road trip to Bainbridge, Georgia to see my Uncle Robert and Aunt Mary’s new home. In addition to my fun list, I will also be chipping away at a few of the items on my 21 for 2021 list. What will your summer look like this year, dear reader? Hopefully, it will include some fun and relaxing activities. Happiness!
