A Simple Summer List

Sun Gold Cherry Tomatoes 2015


When I was still teaching, I used the summer to relax of course, but I also used it as a time to get organized and to conquer a long to do list.

That is NOT what I am going to do this summer. 

Here is what I am going to do, when I am not off visiting our grandsons.

Mexican Limes in aTalavera Bowl

I am going to eat avocados with diced tomatoes from my garden, sprinkled with Nature’s Seasoning and fresh squeezed lime juice on top.

I am going to play music on the patio and dance back and forth in front of the den window (where my husband will likely be watching sports on television) so he will laugh.

I am going to watch every minute of the College World Series because I love baseball (and the Aggies are one step away)  and all of the players look like older versions of my grandsons.

I am going to drink alkaline water with watermelon, or strawberries, or cucumbers added for flavor.

I am going to buy bags of crushed ice at Sonic because it is amazing. 

I am going to wear Mexican blouses and white cropped jeans and rhinestone Yellow Box flip flops and lots of bracelets and big Frida earrings.

And, I hope at least once this summer all of our girls (and my grandsons) will be here together so I can pamper them and cook whatever they want.

What’s on your simple summer list?

Yes! Big Frida earrings! Sounds like wonderful summer plans!

I am in love with your list!!! I definitely need a "low key" summer this year.

A treasured memory of mine was going home to visit my Mother during the summer (or really any time of the year) & she would cook & bake some of my favorites.....potato salad, apple pie, chocolate chip cookies. I can imagine what fun it will be to have your girls all together to share their Mom's home cooking!

Oh what a perfectly beautiful, fun, and memorable Summer you will have!

I love it! I used to dream what I would do in the summer once I retired! I hope you get to enjoy every minute! Unfortunately I had to retire early to take care of my elderly parents. Now I am caring for grandchildren (which I love). I did not, however, envision a crib or pack n play in every bedroom and receiving a double jogging stroller for my 38th anniversary present!

Your summer sounds so fun-filled, Laura! Mine is going to be spent refreshing the paint in most of the rooms of the other words I will be watching paint dry!
Enjoy the weekend.

Oh, yes, Sonic ice is the BEST and we buy it by the bag. Loved your summer list. Mine is pretty much one thing - get moved!!! :o))

Laurie said...

Sounds like you have some good times planned. What are Mexican blouses, though?

Vee said...

Now that sounds like a fun summer list!

Love your summer list, it's just perfect! I think I'll have to try Sonic Ice! Miss Laura, I do not have a list, I should! If I had one, to go with the flow! I am now going to start on a list! :)

Patricia @ CorninmyCoffee-pot said...

First off...
I'm going to Read White Spray Paint (the blog) and... take notes from you!
You have the best lists...;)
Bag of Ice from Sonic-- oh, yes. Just what the Dr. ordered for the Hot Flashes; if I remember correctly. Hot flashes and failing memory...have you talked about those things? I need a refresher!
Oh yes, lots and lots of baseball.
Hmmm... Oh yes, I'm supposed to be making my list.
Where did I put the notepad and pen...
I'm off to make my list!

Stacey said...

Can I do all of these things too? I love this list!! ♥

Terri Steffes said...

I read this with both joy and tears in my eyes! You sound happy and joyful! I am such a softy for people who are happy and joyful! Love the list.
