It's Summertime. . . and the Livin' is Easy

It sure felt like summertime around here this weekend.  Hot and humid.  It's a perfect time to think about summertime goals . . . prompted by this week's Ten on Tuesday topic . . .


Ten Goals for This Summer:

  1. Find plenty of opportunities to put my feet up and . . . relax!
  2. Eat fresh -- visit the Farmer's Market for fresh, local produce.
  3. Go to the Lake Michigan shore now and again . . . catch a sunset!
  4. When it's too hot to be outside, stay inside where it's cool and organize a closet or two (or three).
  5. Do a little "sprucing up" at the cottage -- some paint, some new shelves, replace the flag.
  6. Visit a botanical garden or two; go on some garden tours for inspiration.
  7. Research cameras . . . take the plunge and buy one!
  8. Finish the Photoshop class.  (It's time to Just Do It!)
  9. Smell the roses!  Don't stress out about what's "not done" in the garden. . . and enjoy what "is!"
  10. Soak up the sun!  Get out and "play" in the delightful summer sunshine.

How about YOU?  What are your goals for the summer?

What I love the most about summer are the sunny days . . . with enough rain for the garden, of course!


Great idea to visit some gardens! I'm adding that to my list!

Do wine and cocktails figure anywhere in there? They figure large on my list of summer to dos! This year, I hope to perfect a killer white wine sangria. Perfect for sipping on a hot summer's day!


I'll be brushing up my martini making this summer. By fall they should be peerrfect. ;-)


eat fresh! that is one of my favorite things about summer. hope to get to a farmer's market (or two)...and I'm definitely going to enjoy the sunshine (and the heat).


Sounds like a great summer you've got planned. I'm envious of your cottage, I must admit.


Wonderful list!


I've wondered whether a camera decision has been made!! Sounds like a great summer.


Great list! I hope to just enjoy summer and not work too hard at it. Reading and knitting on the patio with a beverage nearby sounds good!
