I don’t really know what that means, it just sounded fun. And the hubby is looking pretty fly (for a white guy)…a little Offspring anyone…no?
So, it’s July. (Yes, I know that we are already 1 week into July…I was on VACATION!) So now that I’m back, adjusted to non-island life, and getting on with my chores, I suppose I should check back on those June goals. ::Groan::
Take vitamin every day, B
Take herbal supplement 3x/day, B
Eat dinner in 4x/week, Hmm…I don’t know how to count this being on vacation and all…
Be in bed (and asleep) by 11:00 on weekdays, F. This will just never happen, I fear.
Walk to or from work 4x/week, Umm…we had a lot of rain.
Go for at least a 20min. walk outside 1x/week, A
Stretch and do “mini-workout” every day, C
Mail a card to a friend via snail-mail, A
Organize my clothes closet, Yes. I mean I did, but then it got messy again. The hubby finally agreed to install an organizer…after I kicked a suitcase…not one of my finer moments, I admit.
Make 3 more cards for Fall craft fair (gotta start early…), I’m more of a wait-til-the-last-minute kind of gal.
Try one new recipe, A
Read 2 books out of the “To Be Read” pile accumulating on my coffee table, A
Oh, wait. That wasn’t too painful. Or maybe I’m still on a vacation high.
So besides vacation (did I mention I went on vacation yet?!), check out what else kept us busy in June.
I only killed 1 Gerbera daisy plant. However, my gladiolus have yet to bloom. I mean they sprouted, and they look lush and green, but no spikes or blooms. Any suggestions?!
I did try a new recipe. I made zucchini bread. We’ve also had friends over for dinner a few times, which is nice—cooking for 3,4, or 5 instead of 2. No leftovers!
MOVIES & TV
Wipeout is back! Best show ever! Okay, not ever, but close.
We also started watching The Tudors on Netflix. I don’t know why we’re so interested…it’s not like we don’t know what’s going to happen…rebellion, sex, & beheadings anyone? And since no post is complete without a Twilight reference: Did you know that Henry Cavill, who plays Charles Brandon Duke of Suffolk in The Tudors, was Stephenie Meyers’ first choice to play Edward?
We also watched Love Happens, which was pretty good. I’d recommend a couple hours of your life for it.
Ha! I get to talk about Twilight again. I read the Bree Tanner novella. Not earth-shattering, but I enjoyed it. It was an extremely quick read, like a few hours quick, and it was a nice back-story to have before seeing the movie.
I then read Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress. Highly recommended. Set during the 1970’s cultural reeducation in China, it provides a brief glimpse into a part of history I was unfamiliar with.
So I guess I should finally get around to setting some July goals, no?
Take vitamin everyday
Take herbal supplement 1x/day
Eat dinner in 4x/week
Be in bed and asleep by 11:00
Walk to work 2x/week (it’s hot out there!)
Do 1 adventurous outdoor activity each week (yeah…I know that’s open-ended)
Mail a card to friend via snail-mail
Try 2 new recipes
Read a book
Organize filing cabinet
Organize clothes closet
Pass my graduate school class (preferably an “A”, yes, but we’ll see…)
Wish me luck!
