Summer's here!!

Yesterday was the first official day of summer. I'm so excited. Bring on the BBQs, beer, fireworks, and baseball.

I enjoy setting some goals for each season -- things I want to do or accomplish -- and then evaluating at the end of the season. 

These were my goals for spring: 

- Lots of live baseball. - CHECK!
I went to St. Louis and visited a new ballpark (I've now seen 11 of 30) and caught a game. I've also been to three Iowa Cubs games so far.  I'm only getting started with the baseball.

- Wear a skirt or dress once a week. - CHECK!
I did it!!! After about five weeks, my co-workers stopped asking why I was so dressed up.

- Check out a new running trail. - CHECK!
I did a race in a new part of the city, so I think this counts.


And, now, it's time to look ahead to the new season and the things on my to-do list for summer. Here are my goals:

- Take advantage of the pool at my apartment complex.
By this time next year, I will hopefully be living in a house I own. I need to enjoy the luxury of pool access while I have it.

- Ride my bike to the High Trestle bridge.
This was on my list last summer and I failed. I need to make it happen.

- Finish the first round of re-writes/edits on my next book and start the first draft of the one after that.
I have kind of an aggressive timeline with this baseball romance series. I want to have the second book out in November or December, and I need to have enough of the third one written to tease it in the back of the second book. Time to get to work.

What's on your to-do list for summer?


  1. Great job on your spring goals and I know you'll have a lovely summer too!

    I need to take advantage of the pools at my disposal...

  2. These are great goals! I started wearing lots of skirts and dresses last summer and like you, it took a few weeks before people stopped asking why I dressed up. This summer, almost all the ladies in our office are wearing skirts and dresses. (Does this make me a trend setter?!-LOL!)
