Goals for the Summer
As a teacher, summers are extremely precious. It is a time to relax, rejuvenate, travel, learn new things, read, and work on projects. I am grateful for summer vacations.
This summer, I want to …
1) Learn to quilt. Make a t-shirt quilt with all of my race t-shirts. I’ve been saving them since 1997.
2) Garden : Plant hydrangeas. Start an herb garden. Plant a lemon tree. Move the Japanese Maple to a shadier spot. Nurse the gardenias back to health.
3) Go to Hawaii. Snorkel. Eat lots of pineapple and macadamia nuts. Hike around the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Relax.
4) Go outdoors : Hike in Utah. Hike in Auburn. Hike Mt. Tamalpais. Continue to run (and sign up for more short races). Bike more.
5) Cook more. Grill more. Learn at least five new dishes. Learn to cook tilapia. Eat more salmon.
6) Clean the closet. Seriously clean it so that I can walk in it — after all, it is a walk-in closet. 6/3/2010
7) Hold a yard sale. Sell some stuff and give the rest to Goodwill.
8)) Move Jim’s office to my old scrap studio. Convert the second bedroom into a guest room.
9) Host a crop at our house. Have friends over for dinner more often.
10) Pick fresh berries (6/4/2010) and make homemade jam. And another berry pie (or two).
12) Photography : Shadow a photographer. Learn the business aspect of photography. Practice taking better photos.
13) Get my finances in order.
14) Learn to bake red velvet cupcakes.
13) Scrapbook. Document the journey and continue to tell my story.
