14 Things to do before Summer is over

August 15, 2008 in Books, Food and Drink, Friendship, Recipes, Resolutions, Travel, Well-Being
  1. Loose the swimsuit weight - ha!
  2. Sit in the canoe by the waterfall at Horseshoe Lake and sip Lemon Drops
  3. Drink Get one of those European Pedicures that Carolyn keeps raving about
  4. Have an old fashioned picnic with fried chicken, potato  salad and strawberry jello (wow, that one brings me back to my childhood) 
  5. I need at least four more “floats” in the pool. Crystal, come on over!
  6. Be the willing recipient of all the homegrown tomatoes and zucchini that I’m offered by my zealous gardening friends.
  7. Finish up my fun summer reading before they're due back to the library. Currently enjoying Nancy Martin's Blackbird Sisters Mysteries including, "Cross your Heart and Hope to Die," "Have  your Cake and Kill Him Too,"  "A Crazy Little Thing called Death."
  8. Take a ROADTRIP to Seattle to see the Mariner's play. (and win, hopefully - however, I hear you can get tickets cheap)

    Icecream
  9. Have an old-fashioned double scoop chocolate ice cream cone. If I'm going for all those calories, it's gotta be chocolate.
  10. Drive up to Greenbluff to pick ripe Peaches. Just slice the peaches, sprinkle with powdered sugar and arrange in pre-baked pie crust - Yum!
  11. SunbathingTalk Murphy into a day at Silverwood Theme Park to get soaked on the Thunder Canyon water ride. (forecast is 100 degrees on Sunday)
  12. Go up to Priest Lake, lay on the beach and watch the Meteor Shower on August 18 
  13. Throw the final pool party of the season - but make it easy - Pizza and beer!
  14. Meet girlfriends at Anthony's to watch the Falls from the patio - if I leave right now, I can make it for the earlybird dinner special.

What's on your List? Write up 14 ideas and do AT LEAST 3 of them.
