Our Summer Bucket List will be very different from last year’s. The move + worldwide pandemics + travel restrictions have really affected our plans. But we’re nothing if not resilient. So what’s on tap?
1. Visit someplace new.
If/when my mom visits later this summer, the DH and I have a romantic getaway planned to Key West. As of the date of this post, Florida is open to visitors and we plan to take every precaution possible.
2. Sign the kids up for the Summer Reading Program at the local library.
3. Watch the 4th July fireworks.
Any tips for the best viewing spot in Nashville?
4. Go on a nature hike.
During the COVID lockdown in Alabama, we were allowed to visit the state parks. We did so every weekend to break up the monotony of safer at home. I hope we continue to do this on a regular basis.
5. Watch less tv. This one will be tough.
6. Start a vegetable garden at the new house.
This is no easy feat as my soil is categorized as limestone mud. Yes, it is as bad as it sounds.
7. Utilize the porch swing and rockers as often as possible.
I’m so excited to finally have a porch big enough for a swing and rocking chairs! Level childhood dream realized!!
8. Catch and release a firefly.
We see these magical creatures most evenings. Sometimes they float right by us.
9. Find a local ice cream parlor to patronize.
10. Plan a family summer vacation.
Other than the move, a quick day trip to the beach, and hiking state parks on the weekends, the four of us have been safer at home since March. The cabin fever set in eons ago. I’m still working out the details of this one given our limitations. Stay tuned.
