  1. Happy Summer! :) For me, I'm just trying to read as much as I can before July, when my summer class starts -- Intro to Meteorology, assuming they don't go and cancel it or something dumb like that. LOL Then two classes in the Fall! :)

  4. Lots of reading here too. We will probably keep two of our grandkids for a couple weeks some time this summer, so I'll have to think of fun things to do with them. June 2nd, Hubby and I have our 28th wedding anniversary. We want to go to see Wicked at the Shuster Center in Dayton. We're hoping to go camping over the 4th of July holiday. That will be so much fun. I'm glad for my Kindle App on my phone. I can read any time I want to or any time I have a few minutes somewhere in between summer fun.

  14. Not a whole lot planned this summer yet except that I will be the driver for my daughter's bicycling team as they ride across Iowa a full week in July. I just have to drive the car from point A to point B each day and then have the rest of the day to do whatever I want - which is going to be reading, reading, reading!!

  18. Well I don't have a lot of plans this summer except to take my soon to be 7 year old son to his first summer camp. That's pretty exciting around our house lately. Oh and I will be running my first 5k on June 5th. Woo hoo! Also, my husband and I will be celebrating 14 years of wedded bliss this June. :) So just a relaxing summer with some good books and some lemonade. Yum!

  22. Happy start to Summer! I'm not sure what plans I have considering I'm still working in the summertime. With a special someone moving to my state in August, I'll probably have a week off so I can get him settled. I'm hoping to get some reading done and so far I've been going strong. :) May's been a very good month for reviews. Yay for summer reading!

  37. Well, I will be going to physical therapy for the next 4 weeks at least to try to help my back/hip. I will also be keeping my nephew quite a bit, since his mom has to work and he will get bored & argue with his 2 older sisters if left with them all the time, lol. Otherwise, hanging out, swimming in my pool, and lots of reading.

  38. Yum, that lime drink looks tasty. I'm wrapping up a work contract on June 30 and taking the rest of the summer off. I can't wait. We might try to go on a dive trip. Otherwise, just lots of hiking locally and hanging out.

  39. We are trying to save money so....I will be doing a lot of reading this summer. Its too dang hot to do much else anyway!

  40. We probably won't take a summer trip because we JUST got back from our big vacation. We went to the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. It was wonderfully cool there, and I came back to Georgia heat and humidity. This summer will be about staying cool, going to outdoor concerts, reading, and spending time with family.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Our summer will include lots of trips to Six Flags San Antonio. My husband surprised us with season passes & the kids and I are really looking forward to going often!
    We'll also be doing a lot of home renovations. We're going to be building built-in bookcases in our kids room (they inherited my love of reading!).
    Other than that, our goal will be to stay cool!

  42. My family and I will be having a staycation. My hubby started a new job in the fall and hasn't earned enough vacation days yet. I am hoping for a few day time jaunts with my daughters to the zoo, museum, and the beach. Also, my daughters' Girl Scout troop is having its first camp out. The local AA team is letting girl scouts sleep out on the field after one of their games at the end of June.. It's going to be awesome. I'm excited for it!

  43. Our son is graduating from high school on June 10th and we are getting things organized for his party, which we will be having down by our pond and then we will be planning another party for his eagle scout award which he should be getting in July.
    I am also going to join the summer adult reading program at the local library on Friday to have a chance to win a Kindle fire! The rest of the summer we plan to spend quality family time together before he leave to go to college.

  46. My big plans is to tear down our deck and get it rebuilt. I'm hoping to have it done in two months, but since I'll be out there doing it with hubby, I'm not pushing for a time frame. As long as it's up for Labor Day, I'll be happy.

    Yay for the sunny weather we have.
