Just a little late to the party ... but they say, better late than never.
I'm hoping this post will help me get in the blogging spirit!
Last year we added a glassed-in patio to the back of our house. It's my favorite place to be most any time but especially in the summer. I can rest on comfy furniture, watch the rays dance on the flora, and listen to birds call to one another.
I wrote in an earlier post about a summer goal to walk more and so two my of my Twitter buddies have set daily "fitbit" goals. It's a challenge but I'm getting 10,000 steps each day ... and discovering the beauty of our neighborhood in the process.
I have every intention to blog daily this summer, but good intentions are not enough, apparently. I haven't been able to find words to put together - yet. I'm hoping the writing muse will return soon.
Summer, time off from work, family ... so many gifts ... I need or even want little!
I have ideas for projects - they are still just ideas. Since I want or need little, the projects are simmering on the back burner.
The challenge for "summer lovin" was to list a few things that I'll love about the summer. That list could be quite long. One of the best parts of summer is getting to spend more time with family. The grandsons and I visited the park this morning - splash pad, playground, sand pit, and picnic. It was great fun! Another important part of summer is filling buckets - mine and others. It may sound rude to list my own bucket first but I ended school year empty. I need to take care of myself so that I can be good to others. And yes, I want to nurture friendships and family relationships! Last, I know this summer I will love pondering. I like that word. It feels heavy, it has weight to it. It is a slow process. It can appear to be passive but it is mindfully active. And it is the process through which I become a better teacher. My pondering takes the form of reading, discussing, thinking, and planning.
What are you going to love about this summer!?
