Hello, my bucket list, friends! I’m very happy to say that my summer has gotten off to a great start. The first weekend of summer was pretty exciting for me. I went thrift shopping, went shopping at a toy store, and went to one of my favorite local events. I’m excited to tell you more about it, so let’s get to it!
Friday June 2nd – On this day, I worked the opening shift. I started my day by going to the coffee shop. After getting coffee, I walked to my favorite local thrift store. I have been going to this thrift store a lot lately. Even though I go there often, I usually find some great items, and this shopping trip was no different. I got some fun items during this thrift trip including a Barbie doll, a book about cats, a bag of beads, sunglasses, and a stamp and ink set. I also got some stickers and some scrap book paper. After my thrift shopping fun, I went to work, and I had a good day working at the plant store. When my shift was over, I went to the candy store where I got a Pez dispenser and some candy. At home that evening, I did a painting art kit where I painted a ceramic frog. I really like the way the frog looked when I was done painting it. This day was a really good start to my weekend.
Saturday, June 3rd – I worked the opening shift again this day. Before work, I went to Starbucks, and I got an iced coffee before going to open the store. After my shift, I walked to the toy store. I was happy to see a sale table outside of the store. I chose two items from the sale table. One was a fuzzy slap bracelet, and the other one was a hair scrunchie. Inside of the store I got some more items. The items I got were a set of Jacks that used toy frogs instead of jacks, some fuzzy car stickers, and a package of capsules that become foam sea animals when you put them in water. After shopping at the toy store, my mom and I went on a walk at the park. It was a warm day, so after our walk, we went to Starbucks again to get some cold drinks. I had a really great Saturday!
Sunday, June 4th – I had the day off, so I started off my day by getting coffee and going to church. I enjoyed church, but as soon as it was over, I was ready to leave because just a short walk away, one of my favorite local yearly events was happening. For the past few years, I’ve been helping to sell desserts and drinks at the Fireman’s BBQ. The purpose of the event is to raise money for the volunteer fire department. One thing that I really look forward to at this event is the raffle. Last year, I won an American Girl doll, and I was hoping to do the same this year. I’m happy to say that I was successful. However, since the weather was really nice this year, there seemed to be a lot more people there than there was the year before. I knew it was going to be harder to win, but I did. I also won a color by number art kit. That evening, I went on a walk to see my favorite ponies. This weekend was a wonderful one.
