Suddenly, This Summer

My summer to-do list, in no particular order.

  • Make sushi
  • Play horseshoes/frisbee/bocce at Laurelhurst park
  • Visit the International Rose Test Garden
  • Go swimming
  • Take a picnic to the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden
  • See the lava dome at Mt. St. Helens
  • Visit the farmers market
  • Finally start those tango/salsa lessons we've been discussing for months
  • Potluck (possibly themed) at our house (I'm thinking fried catfish, hush puppies, corn bread...)
  • Visit Steens Mountain and yes, camp. Possibly.
  • Zoo concerts! (Keb' Mo' and Rodrigo y Gabriela have particularly caught my eye)
  • Lounge on the back patio with a mint julep or a negroni...or just campari on the rocks and a good book
  • See to the Red Headed Stranger on a hot night in July
  • Consume rosé...perhaps on the patio, with a good book
  • Bike the Springwater Trail
  • Go to a Portland Beavers game
  • And of course, knit. When I have time.
So, who's with me?

I see a number of these items that I would like to participate in. Also, I would like to invite you to something on my list, which is having a picnic on Sauvie Island.

Steens Mountains! I've been wanting to go for ages. Sauvie Island sounds awesome too.

Personally, canoeing and hiking are top of my list once the condo madness sorts itself out.

Mmm, hush puppies.
