Summer List: Part Two

Part two of my things to do this summer list, just cause I love lists. Some of the things aren't really particular to summer, but I'm pretty sure I shouldn't get too bored these holidays now.

1. Make some pretty cookies/cupcakes. I'm inspired by the photo in the last post.
2. Have an Aaron Johnson movie marathon. Loveeee Aaron Johnson.
3. Find a four leaf clover.
4. I really would love to take one photo each day of summer, with a polaroid. Problem is, I don't have a Polaroid, and even if I get one for Christmas, the film is pretty expensive! Maybe next summer. I really want to do it though.
5. Build a sand castle. Havn't done that for ages. I'm so happy we're off to the beach for Christmas! :).
6. Yet another thing I havn't done for a while. I'm determined to fly a kite. I don't think I have mine anymore though. It used to be so cute, complete with little bows along the tail (is it called a tail?). Where exactly do you buy kites anyway? Havn't seen them anywhere...
7. Camp out in my back yard, or my friend's. Doing this in summer is perfect. It doesn't get too cold and you can lie outside and watch the stars.
8. Swim at night.
9. Get a penpal. Somehow. I had one when I was about 11 or 12 and I loved getting the letters in the mail. I've had no luck finding a decent, reliable way to get one though. Can anyone help?
10. Collect seashells and draw in the sand. The end! For now...

  2. That is such a wonderful list! I hope you get a chance to do all of them. I especially love the idea of camping in your own backyard.

  3. This so lovely!
    If you do find a four leaf clover i'd love to know - i have searched far and wide without any luck :( i think it would be amazing to document everyday with a polaroid!
    If you can't find a penpal i would happy to be one! I dont know if your looking for anyone in particular but i think it would be lovely to be expecting letters in the post :) let me know,
    Amazing post as usual!

  4. What a perfect list! Especially camping out and flying a kite (I've always wanted one with bows down the tail!). And Postcrossing is good for pen pals.

  5. lovely list:)it's winter here and you are making me wish for the summer again! i would love to be your pen-pal:)

  6. Such a pretty photo! And your list is so fun. Swimming at night is so magical (flying a kite too!) You should be able to find a kite at a toystore or definitely online.

    And I've a goal to get a penpal too as I keep acquiring stationery! Ha!

  7. Love this list! I want to do 5, 6 and 7 as well. The childhood memories are just flooding back!


  8. I lovelovelove this list!
    I love how I'm planning to do most of these, and have already done some!
    Yay for summer :)

  9. I love this! I especially like your polaroid idea, that would be the perfect way to keep track of summer days :)

  10. Such a long list.

    Good luck~

  11. Oh I love lists to!!! I've been doing New Year Resolutions now for the last 3 years now because they are so much fun to create. Not to mention it is just so inspiring to have that accomplished feeling after you've reached a goal!

    oooh I want a Polaroid camera too!

    I love your list there are a few things on it I'd like to do too...

    Like getting a penpal (I've wanted one for ages!!!!!!) and flying a kite...
    It's been so long since I've flown a one. My sis and I used to make them when we were kids -- after seeing Mary Poppins one too many times we sat down and crafted our own out of random materials that weren't meant for flying (but we had fun all the same:) we even used trash bags, attached to string, one time it was hilarious.


    p.s. Have a great weekend! :)
