End Of Summer

| 26 Comments | No TrackBacks

I pretty much consider Labor Day the official end of summer and beginning of Fall.  I had a good summer, which included growing my first successful garden, hosting my first BBQ, and a trip to two great cities in Canada (Toronto and Niagara Falls). 

But there are a few things that I wanted to do, and never did:

  • Go on a beach vacation.  Or even go to the beach at all.  I really wanted to go to Cape Cod, or some other coastal city with nice beaches, again this summer but we never made it.  I suppose we opted for the trip to Canada instead, but it would have been nice to do both.
  • Get more outdoor exercise.  Biking, hiking, running, tennis. 
    • I haven't used my bike once this summer.  There is a great place to ride that is close to my house.  It's nice and flat, stretches for miles and miles, and doesn't involve sharing the pathway with cars that are very large and heavy and metal and can severly injure me.  But we just haven't done it. 
    • We went on 1 legitimate hike and another 4 mile walk along the canal, but I would have loved to have done that much more often than we did. 
    • I also really wanted to get back into running again.  It makes me feel so good when I do it, but I am not a very good runner and that hurts the motivation.
    • I played tennis in High School and absolutely loved it.  Every time I watched a US Open match recently I just wanted to hop off the couch and go play immediately.

Part of the reason why I didn't do these things, is my boyfriend doesn't particularly like doing them.  That's my lame excuse and I'm stickin' to it.  I have a decent shot, with enough whining, at getting him to go on a bike ride or short hike, but I don't think I'll ever get him to go on a run with me.  I think he's of the philosophy that you should only run if being chased.  Unfortunately, I am not the most independent person in the world and I don't usually like doing things alone, so I have missed out. 

Now the summer has pretty much ended, and even though I love autumn, too, it passes far too quickly.  Before I know what has hit me there is snow on the ground.  And me and snow, we don't really get along.  Maybe now is a good time to start planning a nice February trip to the Caribbean somewhere.


What did you plan or hope to do this summer?  Did you end up doing most of them?
