Well dear friends, we have made it through one week of June, and it wasn’t so bad! Other than a slight mishap where a school decided at the very last minute to cancel on a field trip we had already planned and set up for them, it really wasn’t a bad week. I’m still feeling tired and still not sure what is going on with my health, and I may or may not have had a breakdown Wednesday evening. Overall though, life is good.
Now that summer is here (more or less), it seemed like an appropriate time to check in on my spring goals, and set some new ones for summer!
1. Try two, new recipes
Done and done! We’ve done really well with cooking at home these past few months. New recipes have included these delightful sausage rolls, and these strawberry scones.
2. Hit up the gym at least twice a week
Well, I was doing really well at going for runs around three times a week until I got sick, so that’s got to count for something, right?
3. Paint furniture
4. Purchase and install at least one ceiling fan
Did. Not. Happen.
5. Stop eating so much pizza
6. Write one chapter of my book
Sadly, I think I got maybe 500 words.
7. Enjoy the sunshine
This absolutely happened.
8. Learn more about becoming a Lia Sophia advisor
This totally happened! I’m officially an Advisor and you will hear more about that soon, I promise.
9. Clean out the garage
Ohhhh, I got this place so organized! Well, as organized as I could without actually spending any money on shelves and baskets and whatnot. I also swept it out and it’s looking reeeeaalll good these days.
10. Throw at least one social gathering
We had a few people over for my starter show in May. We had a mimosa bar so you know it was a success.
1. Do at least one project around the house
Summer is going to be cray cray–I travel a lot for work, then there’s vacation, more work, and then summer is over. So I’m going to make this as easy as possible and if I can get at least one room painted, or one light installed this summer, I will be pleased.
2. Don’t have surgery
I would be totally cool with not having surgery this summer. We’ll find out this week.
3. Try three new recipes
Already on it! I made homemade spaghetti sauce last night and it was a huge success. Maybe for the next two recipes I will actually document them for the blog…
4. Write three chapters in my book
This is so ambitious, I don’t even know if I can deal.
5. Visit at least three wineries
Remember, I’ve got a lot to go if I need to accomplish this on my 30 before 30 list.
And that’s it! It’s summer, so I’m not real into putting too much pressure on myself. I really want to enjoy this summer without having a huge checklist of goals hanging over my head.
What are your goals for the summer, dear reader?
