What's Your Summer Bucket List?

Or maybe "Basket" list?

Summer is fleeting and needs to be focused on many things, but certainly fun must be one of them.  For that reason, I felt the need to make a Fun Things to do This Summer list.  Among them was basket weaving and you see the fruits of my labor above.  That's right, I made that last Saturday.  Impressive, yes?  Not if you saw the sample basket, but I didn't post that picture.

Here's what else:

Color 5k and July 4th 5k
Read the Bible in 90 Days
Read Bleak House
Canoe Trip
Bicycle Trip
Karate Class (hi-ya! planning to channel my inner Miss Piggy)
Underground Railroad Museum in Cinci
Levi Coffin House (done!)
Celtic Festival in Dayton


What's your Bucket list?

Bitter to Sweet

Thistles....yesterday I spent a lot of time pulling them from my flower beds and garden.  Frankly, I lost track after 250 (really).
Then a friend and her daughter came out and helped me weed by the pond.  It looks fabulous.

This morning, another friend sent down the most fabulous chocolate chip monster cookies IN THE WORLD.

And they were still warm.  I ate three immediately.  Just what I need to continue my work!
