Happy first day of fall!
If you are like me, you’ve been pretending it was fall for several weeks. Despite the heat. But it’s official now…autumn begins TODAY! Hurray! And how apropos that our high temps for today are 20 degrees lower than they were earlier in the week. Break out those sweaters, bring on the boots, tie on those scarves. It’s finally fall.
Today the gals and I are reviewing our summer bucket list progress one last time before putting it to bed for good. Let’s tie up those loose ends first. Then we can get to the 15 activities on my 2018 autumn bucket list. Follow me.
2018 Summer Bucket List, Final Update, 09.2018
Actually, I was in pretty good shape with my summer list at our last look in August, here. There were a couple of things lacking, though.
Buy colorful pots to set out in the rock gardens. Girls, I have driven by several stores that sell them more than once lately. But haven’t stopped to look. Just hate spending money on that right now. With fall coming…I mean, with the arrival of fall…it really isn’t the best time to plant anything in the pots. So, rather than buy the pots now, I am going to bump this to my spring bucket list. Hold me to it, okay?
Take part in dance classes, a 5K or some other physical activity. Guess what? I am running (I hope) a 5K on Saturday but because it is now officially fall (can’t say that enough), that run will count for this season’s bucket list. While PC was out of town, I did swim some and worked out at the gym.
Try 3 new restaurants. Had tried one new restaurant before PC left for North Carolina. While he was gone, I tried another by myself. The pricey Aki Sushi. It was tasty and their wasabi was positively fiery. My fav part was the complimentary seaweed salad.
Overall, I was quite successful, I think, over the summer. Now let’s get to the headliner. The main event.
2018 Autumn Bucket List
I made this list while eating my expen$ive $u$hi after church on Sunday. Then I asked my Prince if there was anything he would like to have me add to ‘our’ 2018 autumn bucket list. The first thing he said was spend time with me! Awww. I have missed my Prince Charming. Then he said get in shape, which we have been working on since we met in 2003!! And he would like to have his son visit over a long weekend this fall.
Here’s the rest of the bucket list.
For my benefit and yours, drew up the list a second time with links to most of the activities. That way I can quickly double-check times and dates for things like the UTEP dinner theater or the schedule for home football games in the picturesque Sun Bowl stadium.
