I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend! We sure did!
Confession time. I admit. I'm a list person through and through. That doesn't mean I'm great at accomplishing everything on my list. But I do like to try. Sometimes lately we feel like we have a million things we want to do and then when we finally have a free minute, we can't think of anything to do.
Does that ever happen to you?
So over the weekend we gathered together and made a Summer Bucket List of some of the things we'd like to do. Some are family activities and others are things I can do during the day with my children.
We may consider a few activities that could be enjoyed in our backyard such as family gatherings and kids' play days. Perhaps, I can consider creating a small outdoor living on the patio so that I can also sunbathe or have tea while the kids play outside. I might look for furniture pieces like outdoor coffee tables, chairs, a lounge sofa, or some other things that could help us make this summer fun and enjoyable.
Though one thing we didn't add to the list but is mandatory in almost all homes prior to the beginning of summer is the HVAC repair and maintenance. I just didn't want to stress you by adding a household task to this list.
However, because I find this particular task immensely important, especially if you are going to spend most of your time indoors, I thought of giving you a reminder. In case you are up for this suggestion, then dialing in an HVAC professional from No Problem Heating and Cooling or a similar firm might be the best you can do to enjoy a chilling summer.
Moving on with the bucket list, we have it hanging in our kitchen, and just looking at it makes me think we are going to have a great summer. We have no excuse to be bored now.
