Many Saturday morning Dave and I would sit with coffee in hand and create / update our to do list for the day. No matter how long the list was, Dave would always add some fun thing to the list: Take a walk, catch a movie, order pizza, visit family. Dave was so good at keeping us grounded and reminding me that it’s not always about how much we get done.
As I open the door to the summer of 2016 with school dismissal at noon today, I want to take my cues from Dave and remember to have some fun this summer. I have loads of professional projects on the list but I also need to take the time to catch up on the things I don’t have time for during the school year. So today I promise to…
- Laugh with my children and new grandchildren
- Enjoy more ice cream cones
- Float on the lake
- Read for pleasure daily
- Stop, look and listen to the lake
- Spend TIME with friends
- Kayak in the early morning or sunset hours
- Take more nature pictures
- Write for fun
Wish me luck!
Today is Tuesday and I'm writing with the Two Writing Teachers and their wonderful writing community!
