Thursday Three – Things I still want to do this summer

Thank you to everyone who reached out yesterday, to my dear jerk friend who messaged me with, “It’s about time oh strong one.”, and for all the comments, virtual hugs, and love. I told you, I have an incredible support system and am dearly loved.

From last summer’s water balloon fight.

I was driving to work today and saw that one of the trees by my work Target (as opposed to my house Target or gym Target) was already totally red. It’s a beautiful color and I’ll try to get a picture of it.

Today there was too much traffic and I was running late thanks to construction I forgot about.

It made me think how the hot summer days will soon be coming to an end (and then come back again for a week because October is weird around here) but that summer is almost over. Well, we have a solid month to go plus probably 6-8 weeks of really decent weather after that. I’m going to try to make the most of it.

Some things I’d like to do some more of before it gets too chilly

  1. Spend more time by the water. I don’t know if it’s just who I am or what, but by the water is hands down one of the best places for me to be. I think it always has been. Unwinding, recentering, just being, water works for me. It seems to work better with natural water (lakes, rivers, creeks etc) but man made is just fine.
  2. Have a water balloon fight with some of my favorite kiddos. Maybe eat too many ice pops. Make smores by the fire. Get more ice cream before it seems silly. Run around barefoot. Maybe see some more fireworks, play mini golf or drive some go carts. Basically, channel my inner kid.
  3. Enjoy this semblance of a tan I have going on before it invariably reverts back to my pasty white pallor. I think I have more of a tan now than I’ve had in years. I’ve also been outside a heck of a lot more – yard work, going to the fair, playing in the garden out in the country and chasing kiddos around. The sun has done a lot for me this summer 🙂 Sure there’s been a few burns, but that’s what the Solarcane in the fridge is for!

What do you want to do before fall sets in with it’s cooler temps and pumpkin spice flavored everything?

    I need to get in a fewww more diving trips. I have one planned for almost every weekend until it’s officially Pumpkin Spice Season and the water is too damn cold to even dip one toe into.Oh and a water balloon fight sounds like a good summer bucket list item and I don’t even have kids! I wonder if my dogs would participate or just hate me… LOL

      Good luck! I want to learn to dive but it’s not easy (or cheap) here in Upstate NY.

      I highly recommend borrowing your friends kids. 🙂

      Brody would participate if that’s helpful…
