We shared our summer bucket lists back in June and today, Carole’s suggested we post an update. Perfect timing since August is already here (and most of the kids around here are back in school this week and next!)
I shared my list back on June 8
and got off to a great start. But it felt like – except for July 4th when I saw fireworks from Sara’s balcony – I hadn’t made much more progress.
Thank you, Carole, for suggesting we check in. Because turns out I have!
First, summer cocktails. I owe y’all a round-up and a few recipes because, so far, I have four favorites, and I’ve purchased ingredients to try a few more recipes. Katie and my sister Karen are my cocktail muses and I’m not gonna lie – having Katie out of cocktail commission this summer is making this one a lot harder 🙂
I’m just three books away from covering my bingo card. and yep, another update is due here too.
I saw Me Before You and Finding Dory in the theater and I’m hoping to see The BFG with my sister soon (I still need to read the book, but I’m thinking I can do that once we have our movie date set).
…and for the rest –
That popsicle mold I purchased back in June is still sitting in the box. I know. pitiful. especially when Deb of Smitten Kitchen shares photos like this one on Instagram. Charlie, however, has been enjoying “ice” every Tuesday afternoon. If we don’t visit Whole Foods for gelato (like last week), he has a frozen yogurt. easy, healthy and nearly drip-free.
Also still to do – a bike ride, the botanical gardens (this is probably going to wait until after Labor Day when it might be a little cooler?), a picnic (ditto), travel postcards (I’ll be in Florida for a week later this month), and sparklers…. August and September look like they’ll be fun!
Can’t wait to read about what you’ve been up to … celebrating summer!
