Keep in mind that I have very few vacation days available and Husband will be on a work term placement for his MBA but even still I think he'll be able to take part in more weekend activities than he could at his job last year (when he had a day off about every 12 days and spent half of that day off on the phone!).
1. Go swimming- last summer I failed to go swimming until the very end of August when I went twice, once on an incredibly cold evening!
2. Have bonfires- again last summer we barely used the fire pit until our traditional November 5th Bonfire night festivities.
3. Take Sadie for walks because it's fun- during the miserable weather type months I tend to walk Sadie out of duty at the end of a work day. However, when we have gorgeous weekends and so many fabulous nature parks to explore we ought to actually take her out and enjoy it!
4. Go to at least one roller derby match- how did I miss that all last season?
5. See the summer blockbusters- My family have a bit of a movie theatre addiction and I LOVE summer time because there are always so many movies to choose from. Unlike in early Spring when the options tend to be pretty lame.
6. Sit on the deck- When we first got our house we used to love sitting on the deck drinking tea (or what have you), watching the birds and squirrels and such.... without thinking "I should really go weed that". Need to do more of that.
7. Go to the coast- We live on the Bay of Fundy by the Atlantic Ocean. Think we ought to actually see it some.
8. Saturday mornings at the Farmers Market- Love em (eat too much at them but the food is always sooo good).
9. Enjoy community holiday activities- Husband worked Canada Day and Labour Day and every type of "Day" last summer. This summer we will go watch silly local traditions take place.
10. Leave some unplanned time- I hate feeling I "wasted" a weekend. You know those weekends where you keep saying "we should go do something" but never really do? I think I need to start allowing some weekends where the plan actually is to have no plan and embrace it.
