Ten on Thursday: Hot Fun in The Summertime

Ten on Tuesday Thursday: 10 Goals for This Summer

1. Continue exploring and sharing my interests and passions, and having fun.

2. Re-formulating, clarifying, and implementing my plan to recoup costs and try to make some of it pay me back a little bit.

3. To that end, vending my Make.Do wares with KC&T at our local farmers' market -- opening day is a week from Saturday! I just ordered some MOO MiniCards for the occasion and love them more than I can say!!

4. Riding my bike! While I prefer to ride on 75F days when the humidity is low and the sun is joined in the sky by big puffy white clouds and when there's not much wind and no bugs and on roads with few hills and no stop signs... I need to stop making excuses and just get on the damn thing. Ride like the wind!

5. It's not an unreasonable expectation to lose 10 pounds by the end of summer. Minimum. I'm not buying any jeans in the next size up come fall. Period.

6. I've been thinking about it for months, so finally signing up for a 3-session package with a personal trainer at my fitness center -- whether anyone else wants to join me or not! And take it from there.

7. A very early summer goal -- like, THIS WEEKEND -- is to PLANT! I believe my front porch planter was bare naked all last year. There's a solitary weed growing in it now. It needs some pretty flowers. Also, tomatoes and basil. The planters are there. Even if the harvest is small, it's still a harvest and quite enjoyable.

Untitled8. Knit with laceweight. Kirsten's Through The Loops Mystery Shawl 2012 begins tomorrow and I'm ready... as soon as I decide on color (light green, dark green, or deep red). I've never knit with laceweight yarn before and I'm ready!

9. Go to Bay Beach and ride the rollercoaster! It's been there for a year already!!

10. Go with the flow -- that's my mantra this summer. Just keep on keepin' on and goin' with the flow... let it all just wash over me and feel the cleanse.

Something like that.




Hooray for the personal trainer - you won't regret it! And have fun with laceweight!


You have a great summer ahead of you. My anticipation for basil is already at full speed. I'm trying to be better at getting my move on, too! Kirsten's shawl is so enticing, but I can't keep up with what's already on my needles. I'm so in love with my Make.Do.Dream shawl...it's heaven!


A great summer plan! Good luck with your goals, I think they are all realistic and do-able. I love laceweight.


hot fun indeed! love those moo cards, too!

Whoa, lots to do!!!

Love your new MOO cards - they're great aren't they.

Enjoy everything you do in the sun! We are keeping our fingers crossed for a sunny weekend as it is a four day weekend with two bank holidays on Mon/Tues to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee.

I love knitting with lace- use lots of stitch markers and possibly a lifeline to save headaches and knitaches. I'm doing WendyKnits mystery shawl in fingering wt. What is Make.Do stuff? Personal improvement is honorable goal and makes me feel like a slug. I do go to the indoor pool 2-3 times a week. Good luck with all physical goals, they will lead to smiles.

Like it all. Those are goals I could get behind too and kicking it off with some Sly--sure to win. Sounds like an excellent summer!
