sweet, sweet summer

Do you have a favorite season?
I can honestly say that I don't. There is something that I love about each of them and with the lazy, hazy days of summer approaching I have been thinking about some things I would like to do for the brief period they stay here in New England.

Now, I do not want this to serve as a to-do list, because I wast the summer to be as relaxing as possible, but these are things that I would like to get to while the season is abloom. There will be no check off list, no anxiousness that time is running out and I haven't gotten to everything.
But if I do, hooray!
One way or another, I am determined to enjoy this season to the fullest and try not to let it pass to quickly.

1. visit the lavender farm on Cape Cod
2. plant an herb garden
3. master my grandmother's ravioli recipe
4. sew a dress
5. run a 10k 
6. not use the computer for one entire day
7. try a juice cleanse to reboot my health, maybe this one
8. try lemon mint water
9. organize all of my teaching books
10. have a wine and cheese picnic
11. play with sparklers
12. make a time capsule
13. make sun tea & enjoy it while reading a good book
14. make homemade gelato
15. explore the markets in the north end
16. go see a movie at the drive in
17. make an amazing women album
18. plan a summer book swap party
19. renovate an old piece of furniture
20. stargaze
21. make a new driving cd for trips to the Cape
21. go to Tanglewood
22. see the sun rise at Gore
23. take a dance class

I am sure ideas will be added as summer creeps on, but I think this is a good starting point.

How about you, any plans for the summer?
