It’s the beginning of June, school is almost out, and I’m ready to start summer. What better way to begin than with a blog hop with my critique partners? JQ Rose, WS Gager, Joselyn Vaughn and I are ready to spill the beans about our summer plans–reading and otherwise–and throw in some freebies while we’re at it.
What have I got planned for summer? Loads, let me tell you. For starters, I want to hang out with my kids. DH just strung up the hammock on the porch and it’s big enough for two. I’ll park my favorite wicker chair next to it and away we go. What better place to get started on all those books on our TBR piles?
How about some gardening? This is the year I actually want to fine-tune that salsa recipe so that I no longer have to tout my motto as “Never the same taste twice!”
Finish that craft with the kids! We bought the supplies on spring break and actually cut out some of the fabric. Now’s the time to get those cute bean-bag frogs made.
Enjoy the water! From Lake Michigan to the Muskegon River to our local lake and the even more local blow-up pool in the backyard I want to spend some time in the not-so-deep blue.
I could go on and on about what I want to do. I could go on and on about what I have to do…mow the lawn, weed the flowers, rototill the garden. But let’s keep it simple. If I can spend some quality time with my family, read a few good books, and make use of the good stuff that comes out of my garden, I’ll be happy.
How about you? Leave a comment below on your summer plans–reading or otherwise–and you’ll be entered to win. I’ll pick two winners–one for a free e-copy of Trajectories and one for a $5 Amazon gift card. Put your preference in the comment.
