my summer manifesto 2016.


For no other reason than to add a bit of adventure into our summer. Add some purpose or direction. Seeking to check a few things off my bullet list. Fulfilling hope. And dreams. Here's to a gentle, sweet, adventurist, calm, quiet, lovely, fun-filled summer. I give my summer manifesto. 2016.

Be a tourist for a day in my own town. Take a carriage tour. Eat at the best hot spots in town for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Watch the sun rise over Tybee. Get in line for The Breakfast Club. Eat at the counter. Take a walk along the beach.

Read outside on my glider. And read some more.

Hook up my Silhouette - and make something.

Hook up my WACOM tablet - and write something.

Paint a canvas for our bedroom.

Go jet skiing.

Dolphin watching.

Finish de-cluttering my house: hallway closet and linen closet, organize photos, en-suite bathroom linen closet, and bedroom closet.

Take a couple day trips. Somewhere I've never been.

Watch fireworks on Riverstreet, downtown Savannah.

Make homemade ice cream.

Visit the Farmer's Market and make dinner with the fresh fare.

Welcome a new grandson to the family.

Welcome Summer. 

Just not the heat.

Just not the sand gnats.

And did I mention not the heat.
