In the summertime, when the weather is fine...

As it turns out, I have taken a small unintentional hiatus from blogging. I absolutely love blogging, but during the school year it was so much easier, because I was always in my dorm room, browsing online, and trying to find ways to procrastinate and avoid doing homework. Once I get back into the swing of things, I'm sure blogging will once again become part of my daily routine. I haven't really created a set schedule for myself yet, and I won't get a substantial amount of hours at work for another couple of weeks. I can't believe already 3 weeks of my summer has flown by, I feel like it's barely begun! There are many things that I hope to accomplish this summer, here is just a bit of my list:

  • Read the Newspaper at least 3 times a week ( I am not the best at being up-to-date with current events).
  • Read at least 4 books (I'm hoping for more, but I have to be realistic with this one). I just started reading "Lies That Chelsea Handler Told Me". I read all of her books last summer, and they were hilarious. I thought this one might be a fun read to start off with this summer.

  • Exercise 5 to 6 times a week.

  • Get crafty. Finish quilt from last summer and start another one.

  • Experiment with juicing.

  • Make dinner at least once a week for the family. I decided to try grilling last night. For the chicken, I used Giada's Balsamic BBQ recipe. It turned out pretty well!

What are your goals for the summer?
