Last year I made two lists at the beginning of summer – one was my List of 37, which I’ll review here soon. The other was a list I didn’t post on the Journal; it was my list of things I wanted to do during the summer.
I just caught sight of that summer list posted on my desk. Although I didn’t come close to doing everything on it, I did four things – take my first motorcycle ride, go paddling in a kayak, play on a playground, and go to a county fair.
This summer I’m going to limit myself to three things that I absolutely want to do…the thought being that with only three things on the list, there’s no excuse!
Those three things are:
* Go to a drive-in movie – I’ve never been to one and there’s a theatre that plays double features about a half hour from me.
* Go horseback riding – I haven’t been since I was a kid and I was too scared to enjoy it.
* Take tango/salsa/other Latin dance lessons – This has been coming up really strongly for me over the last week. I definitely want to start taking some dance classes, but there aren’t many offered in this area so I’m going to have to be strategic. In the fall there will be a series of classes offered about 75 minutes away, and I may do that. But I’d really like to start sooner than that. I’ve done a bit of research and I’ll keep doing more to see what I can find (any locals have suggestions?)
One thing that I’ve impressed myself with since starting the Journal is how many new things I’ve tried – in addition to the things listed above, I’ve been tree climbing, shooting, and so much more. Here’s to another summer of fun and adventure!
