Summer Bucket List

Reagan Summerside from Savanna Georgia and thrilled to pieces that summer is here…or almost here. I just bought new ferns to hang from the porch to spruce up Cherry House and bought new window boxes for geraniums and petunias.   I redid the displays in the Prissy Fox with new summer duds of garden party dresses, sandals and shorts and added new fun jewelry in pastels and white.


I am so looking forward to another outside barbecue with ribs and chicken on the grill. I swear you could BBQ a stick and I’d eat it. I love the smell of BBQ over an open fire and the meat sizzling over the flames.
And I want to make ice cream over at Auntie KiKi’s. She has one of those old ice cream tubs where you put the cream in the middle cylinder then add ice and salt around the edges and crank away. Can’t wait for a mouthful of creamy heaven.
And then there’s martinis on the front porch as Auntie KiKi and I try and solve yet another murder. Why am I constantly tripping across dead people? I think it’s the fates playing dirty tricks. When they took Hollis the Horrible out of my live they decided to fill the void with dead bodies.
But on a brighter note… This summer I want to take another picnic out to Tybee Island and eat on the sandy shore. I love Tybee and only made it to the ocean three times this year. Barely enough to get my toes wet.
And while I’m out on Tybee I want a funnel cake with powdered sugar on top and a read snow cone. Don’t you love funnel cakes and snow cones?
Auctions are big in Savannah and the summer auction out at Fort Jackson is the best. Last year I bought an old blue and pink rug for the front entrance of the Prissy Fox. Got it for next to nothing. Love auctions.
I want to see fireworks over the Savannah River, get Auntie KiKi to make me Lemon Meringue pie of the summer and see if I can get Walker Boone to take me for a ride in his red ’57 Chevy convertible. I really have a thing for convertibles and with BW…that’s Bruce Wills the canine version…in the back of the car what could be more fun.
So what’s on your summer bucket list? Got big plans for this summer. Things you cannot wait to do with family and friends? I’ll give away book socks from the answers.
Have a great summer!!!  
Hugs, Reagan

No vaca plans. Hopefully I can take a bit of time away from work to visit my son on the west coast and daughters on the east coast, but no work, no money - lol. Still, most grateful to have a job with good people.

We've got a wedding planned for Memorial Day weekend (Marine grandson is flying home to marry high school sweetheart). I can't even think about summer till after that.

Doward Wilson said...

No special plans for this summer, just my usual volunteer work at our museum and movie theater and library.

No big plans for the summer. A few small trips- to Jasper, Alberta for a weekend with friends, Winnipeg for a golf weekend and horse shows to watch my daughter. And lots of time with the dogs and family. Thanks for the giveaway. Love the socks.

We’ve started our trek back to our lake home. I’m looking forward to sitting on the deck and reading a good book. And also to be able to sleep with the windows open.

Going to my niece's wedding in San Juan Capistrano, CA at the end of the summer. Until then I'll be at the swim club with a book (and maybe we'll get to the beach for a few days, too.)

I'm hoping some friends come visit us this summer but we don't have plans to travel as my hubby is out of work. I think we'll probably try to do some work around our house and yard.

My plans for the summer have changed from what I thought they'd be. I am going to be working hard at learning to eat and talk with my temporary dentures and working hard at physical therapy after having knee replacement surgery tomorrow. Not exactly a fun summer but hopefully next year will be better ��❤��

Wilfrieda Schultz said...

I’m looking forward to going to the beach in the summer , I live in Maine and the summer is gorgeous but winters are so long and tough !

Sharon Whaley said...

No big vacations. Just a couple long weekend getaways. The Ozarks & Branson. Minnesota.

patty marsh said...

No plans at this point. Hubby and I cannot travel together due to the dog we rescued 5 years ago. I'm driving monthly to Cincinnati for work, about a 4 hour drive each way. And hubby hopes to visit his nephew in Houston.

No big plans just enjoying summer weather. Donamaekutska7@gmail thank you for the chance

Robin Coxon said...

Summers are time for my family to attend minor league and major league baseball games - Go Indians! It's also a time to get my therapy by working in our yard and flower gardens. It's like therapy for me. I'm going to be moving slow since I will be having my right hip replaced so I will also be doing physical therapy to rebuild my muscles in my hip and retraining my gait. So needless to say it will be a full summer.

Job hunting, again. yay.

I was looking forward to flying from MI to Tulsa for my 40th HS reunion, but it’s not going to work out. So I’m hoping for some nearby getaways. Legallyblonde1961 at yahoo dot com

With so much summer ahead it's difficult to say what we will be doing but I know my grand daughter will want to garage sale (no opposition there). After being cooped up in the house for about a month (total kitchen redo and main floor painting) I'm ready for a short weekend get away.
