Summer Bucket List

Posted by on July 25, 2012

As I squinted into the sun reflecting off of Lake Ontario, cooling down from my run, I was struck by the realization that summer is nearly half-way over (school/work/holidays-wise, not calendar-wise). It got me thinking that I’d like to create a (modest) list of things to do before summer ends.

Summer Bucket List:

1. Go to the drive-in movies again (Thursday nights: $15 per carload, you can see multiple movies!)

2. Make homemade ice cream (Eat more ice cream in general)

3. Spend a lazy afternoon in the park with Varun

4. Swim (somewhere, somehow)

5. Go camping (& eat s’mores!)

6. Spend as much time as possible outside

7. Stop complaining about the heat

8. Make a summer playlist (Suggestions?!)

9. Go blueberry picking–give blueberries to neighbors, bake and freeze berries for winter

10. Go hiking

What about you?! What’s on your bucket list for the glorious summer months?

    I approve of all these activities and would happily join you in any of them (although I think hanging with Varun in the park is probably meant as a date).

    I’mma make you a playlist.

    I need s’mores. And camping. And ice cream.

      I was secretly hoping you’d make me a playlist. And you are cordially invited to the Hammer to help me fulfill my bucket list! (you can be the morgan freeman to my jack nicholson)

    I was going to make this my facebook status a few days ago. (yes like blog posts, I keep drafts os statuses to update)! I would much rather do these things with someone else!

    Here’s a list of things I still want to do this summer as part of enjoying my city. If you want to come along for any of these please let me know!

    1. Hamilton Beach Trail (maybe food at Barangas or Hutches)

    2. The Aviary Trail in Westdale and feeding the birds!

    3. Puddicombe Farms (Animals and lunch at the cafe!)

    4. Sam Lawrence Park

    5. Fruit picking (at Cherry Avenue Farms)

    6. Walk along the bayfront trail/princess point

    ps please pray it doesn’t rain on friday so we can complete number 9

  4. Team Oyeniyi

    When we stop freezing through winter, I’ll let you know!

      Wow, so crazy to think you’re having winter! I have almost forgotten about cold weather…

    You should’ve come swimming in the bacteria-infested Forest Lake. It was a good time as always 🙂

Thoughts? I love hearing from you!
