"When the summer ends, so do we ..."

I'm back. Yeah, my break was only four days long. You probably didn't even miss me!! But I feel a whole lot better after even just a few days away from blogging. And now I'm ready to get back at it.

I'm a little behind the rest of the blog world. It seems most of the people I follow consider summer over once Labor Day arrives.  I guess I go by the calendar definitions.  To each his/her own!

That said, summer is now officially over for me.  It was a pretty great one.  I started a new job, made some new friends, went on a few dates, attended the wedding of a college friend, drank lots of wine and craft beer, saw fireworks, went to the zoo, and went to a few concerts.   Considering I was unemployed when the summer started and really couldn't plan anything, I'd say it was a winning summer.

I thought I'd share my summer to-do list and see how I did.

:: Go to an Iowa Cubs game ... and actually root for the home team.
:: Find a patio and enjoy some beverages with good friends.  
:: Go to the zoo.
:: Make sangria. (And drink it too, I suppose.)
:: Go to the farmer's market.
:: Take in some outdoor live music.
:: Go to a small town festival.
:: Have a bonfire, complete with s'mores.
:: See fireworks.
:: Try yoga in the park.
:: Have a snow cone.

I think I did pretty well, but I'm kind of sad about the four I missed. I'll just have to try and get those next year. I can't wait to look for new summer adventures.

Until then though, there are a few more seasons to enjoy.   Tomorrow I'll share my fall to-do list.  Make sure you come back and check that out.

P.S.  I don't really believe that headline.  It's just a line from a Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers song, and I thought it was fitting for this post.
