Summer Planning

Along with landscaping, gardening and visiting with family I did some summer planning. I hate that feeling at the end of the summer where I had so many ideas of what I wanted to do this summer, but not many happened. Usually it’s because I just had some ideas in my head, but no plans.

First I filled out my Summer Planning Worksheet (I included it in this week’s newsletter). Then I took out my calendar and scheduled as many as I could. I also have lines to the left of my calendar for notes. I wrote down some of the fun things I wanted to do like lie in the hammock, play frisbee with the kids and go on a picnic. That way I can slip some of these into my weeks.

I like to include the family in my planning so I have them make a list of what they wanted to do this summer. For instance my daughter wants to make over her room and build a fort under our huge pine tree in the backyard with her brother.

This is going to be a fun summer. I’m planning on it.
