A Summer List

f/7.1, 1/200, ISO 200

Between graduation in May and starting the dietetic internship in August, I have a couple months of summer vacation. I still have my weekend job at the hospital, but I want to enjoy myself since this might be the last time I get to do so. I don't remember the last time I get to do whatever I want in the summer, maybe since elementary school. Growing up, my parents always enrolled my sister and I in summer classes, the academic ones like math and science. Even throughout college, I took summer classes. Well, this summer I am taking it easy, so I decided to come up with a summer check list.

1. Blog every other day.

2. Make something yummy every week.

This week I made Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk Cake

3. Read as many books as I can. Follow my reading list by clicking on Goodreads box on the left side.

4. Take pictures everyday, if possible.

Picture from yesterday's visit to Ashland.

5. Run 100 miles per month.

6. Pick strawberries (done!), blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and peaches. Make cobblers/pies/jams with these fruits.

7. Go to lots of festivals/events in the Lexington area.

What's on your summer list?

  1. Run 100 miles per month...divided by 30 days, you will have to run at least 5 km each day! Wow!

    I'm currently training for a marathon and run about 20km or more for 3 days each week... I find this amount is good enough for me to cope. And find it difficult to get more time to run more :( I would love to run as much as you.

    1. It does take a lot of motivation, especially during hot summer days. Good luck with marathon training, looking forward to hearing more about it!

  2. I love the idea of a summer list. I would love to go to a lot of Lexington festivals myself! Do you happen to know where one could find a list of them?

    1. Chevy Chaser has a summer event list, but it is limited to Lexington area:
      This weekend is Beer cheese festival in Winchester, KY.

  3. You've got quite the summer list! Good luck and have a wonderful summer!
