Summer is here and our days are now in the garden planting, mulching and watering or taking slow, exploring walks in the cooler forest. Trips to the corner store for a slushy now and then is essential, along with ordering plenty of novels for the hotter days when going out and about is not desirable.
I am taking a full summer off from writing books or vlogging on YouTube because I feel like staying off line will do wonders for my mental well being. Video taping and editing takes devotion. I will be devoted to a simple, slow life with kids and dogs, sometimes a spouse when he is home.
But then I got busy and found all these things I wanted to share. I’m learning so much about gardening right now. We have sold our rental property. Then we want to do some work on this house and the ugly, dirt front yard but I am allotting a very small budget for the work. Most of the money from the rental will go to paying down this mortgage. We will discuss that in another blog.
My point is this; I am learning and want to share that with you. I am creating budgets. I’m gardening my tail off and learning so, so much! I am eager to blog all summer. Blogging is a delight when on vacation. It is very little commitment. Just a cup of delicious, steaming coffee and a few minutes on the laptop along with a few photos quickly snapped with a cell phone.
Join me for the summer and let us be inspired. Join me on Goodreads.com too. I’m reading up a storm. Lots of bookworms on there sharing their favorite books or worst reads.
Also, the other fun thing on this summer agenda is a new book that I will be publishing in a couple days. I will announce it here when it’s up and ready.
Let’s have a healthy summer filled with all that great summer produce and let our poor brains rest from the onslaught of online life. Watch good movies that make you laugh and cry in a good way. Find fiction that sucks you into the pages of a fat book. Eat lots of frozen, vegan treats. Garden like crazy. Make a new budget that will serve you and the family. Do some small projects to make the house and yard more charming. Get out and take long walks everywhere.
See you soon!☕📚😎🌄
