The first day of Summer Solstice is just two-and-a-half weeks away, but this warm weather and the bright greenery surrounding us each day has me itching for adventure. Trips to the lake and river, camping with friends, barbecues, all day swimming pool sessions, they are all in our near future. Tomorrow morning we head out-of-town for our first trip of the season. Five days on the road with the family. I am excited.
Here are a few more things i am looking forward to this summer…
Eating / Fresh salads, gyros, and corn on the cob.
Drinking / Home-squeezed juice and sangria.
Practicing / Patience, kindness, selflessness, and humility, always.
Mastering / The art of time maintenance.
Learning / How to keep my plants alive.
Trying / To face my fear and ride on the back of my husband’s motorcycle from time to time.
Playing / More! We played nighttime hide-and-seek a week ago, for a good three hours, with the kids and the neighbor kids. It was truly a blast!
Finishing / So many things. I’m feeling anxious just typing that.
Reading / The Goldfinch. I bought the book ages ago and haven’t given myself time to sit down and read much at all.
Remembering / To take my vitamins and to get more sleep when I can.
Wearing / Cut-off shorts, t-shirts, and sandals.
Cooking / Big hearty meals for friends and family and eating outside on the deck.
Working / A little bit less.
Traveling / A little bit more.
Wanting / To exercise. After that three-hour bout running and playing hide-and-seek, I realized just how out of shape I am.
Goals are good. What are yours for summertime?
