My fun list

We're heading out of town today and I won't have my computer so I wanted to post my list of fun ideas for August...

One a day.

No schedule or plan... I want to be spontaneous if I can, but also know having a list of ideas will help...

So here are some of my ideas:
  1. Go antiquing on Monroe street
  2. Swim in the ocean
  3. Go to water aerobics class with some of the sweet little old ladies from my Wednesday WW meeting
  4. Cook salmon on the grill
  5. Take the kids to Donut Parade
  6. Go to Lake Coeur D'Alene for the day
  7. Pick peaches at Green Bluff
  8. Design an "Amazing Race" style scavenger hunt for the family while we're in Manzanita
  9. Go to the sand dollar beach at Ft. Stevens
  10. Have a dance party with the kids
  11. Make some really good coleslaw and eat it on the back deck
  12. Do a milkshake tasting event with the kids, similar to our Cheeseburgerpalooza
  13. Play tennis with Asia at the little city park in Manzanita
  14. Take a sunrise bike ride
  15. Go to Turnbull Wildlife Preserve at dusk or dawn
  16. Build a dam
  17. Play the piano
  18. Go to Hilyard and check out the antique stores
  19. Have coffee (and maybe a teeny-tiny pastry) at Petit Chat Village Bakery
  20. Go hiking on Mt. Spokane
  21. Give away $20
  22. Buy yarn to make a granny square afghan
  23. Make a granny square afghan
  24. Design cards for a fall card class in my home
  25. Hike in the Dishman Hills
  26. Take the kids to the river
  27. Paint one or two of the four little tables I've bought at garage sales (planning to paint and resell them...)
  28. Ride the electric scooters at Riverfront Park
  29. Go to Moore Turner Heritage Garden for a picnic
  30. Take the kids out for a end of summer photo shoot
  31. Go for a drive through parts of Spokane I've never been to

So there's a good working list... I may or may not do all of them... like I said, I want to be spontaneous too, so if something presents itself, I can respond.

Part of my goal in August is to step out of my comfort zone just a bit... be willing to get a little dirty... so while this is a good list, most of it isn't really very stretching...

So I'll be on the lookout for fun things that I would normally say no to... and more eager to respond to some of the kids crazy suggestions that I would normally blow off because I've become old and boring.

So off we go! A whole month of fun!

Bring it on, August!
