I guess I shouldn’t start this month with the question of how it could possibly be July already. That would be ridiculous, right?
But, just just in case you weren’t aware, the first 6 months of this year have vanished. Poof. Gone. It’s definitely summer here now in the Central Valley and we have the temperatures to prove it. I wish I had a nice, long summer break planned, but alas, I am holding on to my hard-earned vacation days with a tight fist. Are you planning a vacation this summer? Where are you going?
Here’s what’s happening this month:
+ If I can’t take a real vacation, I try to work with what I have. I am so thankful that I have a flexible work schedule and can pretty much move around my work hours as I please. So, I worked an extra day last week so I can take Thursday off, and with tomorrow being a holiday and Friday being my regular day off, I get a 5-day weekend. Woot!
+ I am excited for a few books that I have lined up for this month and can’t wait to sit in the backyard this weekend to read and sip iced-coffee.
+ I will finish watching the FIFA World Cup although I haven given up on picking a ‘winning’ team, because this is the craziest World Cup in a while. So many of the favored teams have been knocked out one after another. I guess, we’ll find out which team can sneak their way to the title this year!
+ I had long-overdue phone call with a friend back home on Sunday and I am going to see my friend Susi this month, which I am happy about, because girlfriends make the world go round, am I right?
I guess I don’t have much more to say about this month. I am planning for more grilling, ice-cream, and relaxing when I can.
What will your July be like?
