Summer 2017 Bucket List

. at . 3 comments

This list is from 2011. Read the post to see what I want to experience this summer. What’s on your Summer bucket list?

School is out for 10 weeks. And even though I am not (currently) attending school, I still look at the school summer holiday as THE summer. Therefore the name of this bucket list is My (school) Summer Bucket List.

I want this summer to be memorable. And I tend to do more when I write things down. So I made a list of what I wanted to do. Then I narrowed my list down to 8 areas, some fun and some serious.

My (school) Summer Bucket List

ONE. Craft 10 times. I ENJOY crafting – by myself and with others. I want to make this a regular activity. This list includes art projects with my granddaughter, Operation Christmas Child projects, knitting, watercolour, making cards, and learning to crochet.

TWO. Do 6 coaching sessions. Recently I spent a week in Seattle attending a coach training course. Now I need some “guinea pigs” to practice what I learned. Let me know if you are game.

THREE. Finish 6 unfinished tasks/projects (aka UFP’s). This will be from a variety of areas: writing,  cleaning, financial, home, health, car.

In October 2014 I did a month of posts about finishing UFP’s. Here is the link to the landing page with the table of contents and my why. It was an eye-opening month and it was COOL to cross off so many items on my list. I was surprised I had so many. This month I will only pick 6.

FOUR. Have 6 friend dates. All too often I neglect to make time to meet up with friends on a regular basis. I am going to make this a priority this summer.

How do you maintain contact with friends? 

FIVE. Lose weight. This is my most important goal. I have had varied success with combatting my diabetes.  I have finally decided, this is it! It’s time to get on and stay on the healthy eating track. Plus I want to prove to my doctor that healthy eating, exercise, and other GOOD lifestyle choices WILL positively impact my blood sugar numbers.

My ideal goal is to lose 15 pounds. But since I am very insulin dependent that might not be possible; so I’ll be happy with 5 pounds. I’ve taken my measurements and a photo.  I’ll compare these with where I am at on August 11.

SIX. Read 6 books. The books are as follows …

  1. Healthy Brain, Happy Life: A Personal Program to Activate Your Brain & Do Everything Better by Wendy Suzuki, PhD
  2. No Easy Jesus: How the Toughest Choices Lead to the Greatest Life by Jason Mitchell
  3. The Chalk Pit (Ruth Galloway series #9) by Elly Griffiths
  4. Power Healing by John Wimber
  5. Romans
  6. A Year by the Sea: Thoughts of an Unfinished Woman by Joan Anderson 

What is a Summer must read?

SEVEN. Study Spanish 3 hours a week for 10 weeks. I have plenty of resources. So the first thing I will do is make up a syllabus for myself. However, if you have any tips, please share them.

I will be going to Spain in the Fall and it would be really COOL if I could actually have conversations while there. To be more more precise, I want to engage in conservations more in depth than, “¿Dónde está el baño?”

EIGHT. Watch 5 musicals. My goal is to watch 59 musicals by March. Go here to find out my why. I hope to see at least one live musical. And in any case all of the following are on DVD’s from the library.

  • All That Jazz
  • Flower Drum Song
  • A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
  • On a Clear Day You Can See Forever

Is there a musical or two that you recommend?

Your Turn . . . Do you have Summer plans? If yes, share them.
