What I did this summer…Part 1


As you may remember, I posted a list of the things I’d hoped to accomplish this summer. Some were grand aspirations and some involved me sitting for hours looking at the glowing rectangle mounted on my wall.

So, first in the “not so much” column goes:
Go on evening drives
We did an extraordinary amount of driving this summer. Unfortunately none of it was for pleasure. A lot of twoing and froing related to family matters which I mention very briefly here I might go into it a little more in the future…i’m still thinking about it.
Anyway, we reached a point where we never wanted to sit in the car again. Plus we had probably spent a small fortune on gas so…
“Go on evening drives”….not so much.
Second Visit the U of O art gallery (Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art) and take the bus.
When I was a student there I would spend down time in the gorgeous court yard and remember it fondly. It was a good idea, but I never got around to it. Instead of going and looking at art, I stayed home and made art:

I also completed 4 of the 5 things I had in mind on my life list.
#43 Get my dental issues under control.
So um, I haven’t been to the dentist in over 7 years. I should have gone and I’m sorry I didn’t because then I wouldn’t have had to pay thousands of dollars all in one go to upgrade all the old and crumbling dentistry in my mouth. I did, however get to wear these cool glasses whilst I was drilled and filled.

#83 Learn to play chess
I suck still, but, I have a good understanding of the game and how to play. I used the iChess Lite App and some videos from YouTube.
#38 Make Jef feel special on his 40th Birthday.
#26 Write a cookbook

You can buy it if you desire. Link up there in the header.

The continuation of What I did this summer coming after the crazy week of back to school preparation is over.
