Leigh Ellwood – Summer of Love To-Do List

So I love The Militant Baker. I love the fashion posts and the high-larious commentary, and today I saw her 2014 Summer Adventure List. I have a bucket list fetish. With summer here I have to plan things to keep little one entertained. I don’t get as lengthy a vacation as the kid and the teacher husband, but working a flexible schedule allows me to have some fun when appropriate. I saw all the cool things Jes wants to do this summer, so I figured why not share mine?

Now for a rundown of my adventures (and what I’ve done so far):
Learn to crochet – I have a handle on the round looms. I made a nice 4th Doctor scarf for my AAD basket, and am knitting some neat promo for later. For my daughter I made a Leia cinnamon bun hat and Gryffindor scarf, but now she wants me to make My Little Pony dolls. Not sure what I could do with the loom, and I’ve wanted to crochet for a long time. So I’ll look for a class.

Go roller skating – I have these awesome derby skates, in a box under my bed. Nobody will skate here. The little one fell once and gave up, DH has a bad back. This summer I intend to brave the crowds at the boardwalk.

Cherry picking – There’s an orchard not far from here. We missed last season because there’s a small window anyway and I couldn’t get there in time. This year, we made the time, and a pie. DONE!

Camping weekend – Little one likes camping, so this year we’re looking for a good spot in the mid-Atlantic. Bringing s’mores.

See the Currituck Mustangs – 
I’ve been to Corolla before, but didn’t see the wild horses. Going to amend that this year.

Doctor Who Binge – 
Getting Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, whatever it takes. Starting at William Hartnell and not stopping until Matt Smith fades away. Already on Season 2. DOING!

Make Sangria – 
Lord knows I have enough wine. I made a nice peach sangria with some white table wine. DONE!

Read new-to-me author – 
This won’t be difficult, I’ve already read five. DONE!

Hike part of the AT – AT being the Appalachian Trail. We’re not far and have our choice of many loops. Perhaps a short one to ease DD into hiking.

Bird Watching – 
Little one loves birds. I keep saying we’ll do a bird sanctuary or birding trail. Good time to go.

Letterboxing Trip – 
DD and I did this for a bit when she was younger. I miss it, because it makes for a fun hunt. We could find a few boxes when going on some of these short trips.

Drink Mimosas – 
I usually have these on holidays. Time to celebrate Festivus early. DONE!

Visit the Eastern Shore – 
I drive up and down the ES a lot. I never stop. I really want to.

So what you doing this summer? You can drop me a line on Twitter @LeighEllwood or leave a comment here and let me know.

ADifferentClass3_500x750 (2)FDR High Class of 2004 graduate, Glenn Carson contacts fellow alumni to get a list of who will be attending the upcoming festivities. One call to a disgruntled former student leaves him shaken—apparently, not everyone is looking forward to the reunion. Hoping to ease his frustration, he contacts the 1Night Stand service for a relaxing and passionate encounter.

Known as “Mumbles” to former classmates, Rod Maloney would prefer to focus on the present and his successful business. However, past tragedies continue to haunt him, so he requests Madame Eve find him a man to show him a hot time and help him forget his troubles.

Will their one night together lead to a reunion after all?

About the Author:I am Leigh Ellwood. I write smutty stories about people who like getting naked and having sex. Some have more sex than others, some have sex with people of the same gender, some have sex with more than one person, and still others have sex with toys and things that require the use of batteries. My stories range from a few thousand words to well past 70k. The book list link above breaks everything down for you – genre, length, and other attributes. My books are available at Amazon, B&N, Smashwords, Kobo, and ARe. Really, just type my name in any bookstore site and something is bound to show up. I prefer ARe as a vendor because they rock, but feel feel to buy my books anywhere you like.

  1. Hi Leigh,
    I enjoyed reading your summer bucket list! I wish I had been as productive. Other than visiting with family, I bought a new car and gave my old one to my youngest daughter who started college yesterday :).

  2. Headed to San Francisco the other week, and I’m checking out a record swap this weekend…

  3. Hi Leigh, thank you for a chance to win one of your books 🙂

    Firstly I am trying to catch up with my reading and spending a few quiet moments to just relax. Take up horse riding again, as I have missed it due to a heavy workload and caring for poorly relatives. Contact a few friends that I have not seen for a while. Tidy up, a bit late for spring cleaning but I have some to do and hate leaving it for next spring LOL. Begin writing again, another hobby that has been put to the side for awhile. Begin studying something new and interesting when the adult classes start again, something fun as I normally choose or need to do academic classes. Hmm that’s just for starters, my list goes on….
