Summer Bucket List 2017 Update

A month ago, I posted my summer bucket list along with a group of other bloggers, all organized by Leslie from Once Upon a Time Happily Every After. Today, some of us are posting an update. See below for the linked-up posts.

I think I’m doing pretty well with my summer bucket list, but I’m struggling a bit with some of the weekly items. Namely, I’m not swimming as much as I wanted to, haven’t been to the Farmers’ Market in weeks, and am seriously lacking in taking barre and/or yoga classes.

Here is my summer bucket list; I have written updates next to each item. 

2017 Summer Bucket List

1. Make at least five day trips to the beach. - We are a bit slow on this one, but we spent a week at the beach, so I think that sort of counts.
2. Read three fun books.- Done. 
3. Go to the farmers' market at least once a week. - I don’t know why this is so hard for me right now, but I’ve not been going the last few weeks. One of the reasons was our trip to the beach, but it surely doesn't explain it all. I have been harvesting plenty of my own tomatoes, cucumbers and fresh herbs however.
4. Go on one hike per week. - We have been going on at least one hike a week, usually two or three.
5. Take two barre and/or yoga classes per week. - Another fail. I’ll really have to step up my yoga & barre game.
6. Sleep in at least once per week. - Hasn’t happened once! Not even on vacation… There is still so much to catch up on and my mind is still kind of racing I think... I feel like I’ll finally be able to start to unwind right when the fall quarter starts, which will be too late...
7. Barbecue at least once per week. - Yup. More than that.
8. Spend time in the patio every day. - Not quite every day, but much more than in the past.
9. Swim at least four times per week. - No. Not quite. Have to step it up.
10. Make good use of our Great America and Monterey Bay Aquarium season passes. - We went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium once, and, I believe, four times to Great America. I think that's a success.

Question: What's on your summer bucket list? Is there anything you want to do before the summer is over? 

Be well,
