Remember that I believe summer starts with June 1st? With that logic we are already a few days into the season. Nevertheless I decided to make yet another list. A list to help enjoy summer 2020 to the fullest. Because let’s face it: there won’t be any long distance vacation coming up anytime soon. We are definitely not planning on traveling anywhere this year. So sad but even more important to seek out some fun in the home town:
- ✔ Bake a sugar free cake.
Apparently this didn’t happen in spring so let’s do it now.
- ✔ See the water front.
Spend as many moments as possible with some water close by.
- Finish #the100dayproject
I have taken a break as life and the worlds happenings have clearly overwhelmed me lately. I am hoping to picking up the habit again and crossing off a few more of my projects on the list.
- Read one book with more that 700 pages.
There is a challenge (#dickebüchercamp) I might join. I have a couple contenders.
- Take a boat trip.
Since there won’t be a vacay I am thinking about renting a boat (maybe with friends) and spent a day on the river.
- Enjoy my dads garden party.
If the pandemic allows my dad is throwing a big party celebrating his lifes pivot point of living longer in a united Germany than in the former GDR.
- ✔ Meeting some friends again.
I have been putting off meeting friends. I miss my dear friend A. lots as we haven’t seen each other since February. I have had a couple dinner requests but was reluctant.
- Have a movie night at home.
We watch a lot of movies. Basically every time we have breakfast and dinner on weekends. However I want to have a more planned one. With a cool meal, popcorn in buckets (a birthday present) and a pre-picked movie.
- Enjoy my balcony daily.
It’s the time for morning coffees outside and an outdoor office until the sun hits the screen.
- ✔ Make ice cream.
I think I haven’t used my ice cream maker last year. This year I try one or two new recipes.
- Celebrate 15 years with Mr. ♡
Yep, this July we have been dating for 15 years. Crazy how time flies.
- Going swimming.
It’s been on my list last year. And I already had the itching to jump in a lake and take a swim. I am not the girl who needs a swim to feel a live and I don’t consider myself a good swimmer but something is calling me.
- Visit the Drive-in Cinema
I want to do this for so so long but I can’t quite convince the husband to join. And the movies selection hasn’t been that great… But maybe this year.
And this is how I plan on enjoying summer 2020. Don’t always need to travel far to have some fun. What are your plans? Travel or #stayathome? Now let me know what’s on your list because I am sure my days are not completely filled yet.
Happy summer time
P.S. if you need inspiration for your own summer list check out my archive 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016.
That’s a great list of summer goals… my family was supposed to come visit next month, so that was supposed to be my summer… but now that they’re not coming (because of Corona), I need to rethink and maybe write my own bucket list.
That is such a bummer and I am really really sorry Corona is messing up your summer. Yes write a list and make the best of the sudden free time. It will still be a summer to remember – hopefully in a positive way.
