I know it's only the beginning of March. But I'm already planning on having an interesting summer. I want it to be fun, laid back and unique. I want it to be full of simple joys, tearful laughters, and different experiences.
I'm going to build my dining room table instead of buy it:
I'm going to take a weekend scenic Amtrak trip someplace
have a sleeping car and mingle and socialize with train folk.
I want to work through the pain of osteo arthritis and run a 2k before the end of the year.
I Want to walk barefoot along a portion of the Oregon Trail and feel the history of it beneath my feet, between my toes and in my soul.
I want to get a Library card like when I was kid and make trips to the library.
I want to spend some time under the water relaxing and floating like an angel fish donned in my new purple snorkeling gear
(This really is my new gear!)
I want to go to the salt flats where they filmed "Independence Day" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" and have a bonfire under the summer stars.
and take pictures of the sunsets in West Desert before camping out and witnessing the meteor showers.
I want to create a piece of fabulous funky art or craft and display it somewhere in my home
I want to make Hobo Dinners
and dutch Oven breakfast
while camping in Bryce Canyon again.
I want to do volunteer work and really be a part of the community.
I want to fall into a peaceful sleep in a hammock while reading a book
and Rage at a summer concert.
I want to watch a thunderstorm and dance in the rain.
And I plan on having MY SUMMER!!
