Summertime Adventure List – Final Update

Summertime Adventure List – Final Update

Yesterday I shared my Autumn Adventures list with you, and I promised to come back and give you a final update on my Summertime list.  Here it is! 1.  Bake something special.  DONE!  I *did* do some more baking, but nothing too crazy.  While our son was home on leave I baked some peanut blossoms.  You know the ones.  Peanut butter cookies with a Hershey’s Kiss plunked on top.  I also baked an apple cake for my husband’s birthday.  That’s…

Summertime Adventure List – Update

Whoopsie!  I missed the 1-month update, so I’m chiming in now, 2 months into summer.  Let’s see how I’m doing on my super simplified Summertime Adventure List. 1.  Bake something special.  It’s been a while since I made something special, and I think it’s about time.  Now, what to bake?!?  >>> I baked a really yummy coffee cake a few weeks ago, but I’m aiming for something a little more challenging!  I need to pick out a recipe and make…

I compiled a list of things I wanted to do this summer.  I have been on the road and/or sick nearly the whole month (I’m not exaggerating), but I HAVE accomplished a few things! Here’s my list and how I’ve done so far:  (Yes, some of these are more work than fun, but summertime is a great time to do inside work when you live in the Deep South!) Pantry:  Reorganize my…

My Summer Bookshelf – August

My Summer Bookshelf – August

Welcome to the final edition of My Summer Book Shelf!  Summer is wrapping up.  Temperatures are finally closer to 90 than 100.  (Hallelujah!)  The Summer Olympics have come and gone.  (Am I the only one who had trouble balancing life and reading and the Olympics?  Sleep deprivation, anyone?!?) But the books go on, do they not!  Here’s how I did with my August “To Be Read” list:

My Summer Bookshelf – June/July

My Summer Bookshelf – June/July

Is summertime just meant for reading, or what!  Even though nobody in my family has a summer break from school anymore, summer still screams for a bit of relaxation and lots of reading. Reading!  Reading is my favorite!  (And french fries.)  I have quite a long “Books to Read” list these days.  Several of my friends ALSO have book lists going, so today we’re doing a summery, fun, book-filled blog hop! Welcome to My Summer Book Shelf!  If you hopped…
