Blogging Break Time!

Well, it's that time of year again! I took a break last year and I've been thinking A LOT about doing it again this year. With the weather being SO warm and SO nice recently, I've really had a hard time sitting for any period of time at the's time for a break!

These are some things that I hope to do this summer:

*I've been wanting to do more around the yard, like helping mow the lawn and maybe planting a couple more flowers.
*I can't wait to work more in the vegetable garden now that it's all planted.
*I have some projects started to fix our place up.
*I've also wanted to help with chores more since Rich is gone so often and since he plans to be getting more cattle soon. If not with the daily chores, then at least pitching manure-that stuff piles up quick! LOL!
*I would like to take more walks with the kids and maybe ride bikes (if I get one). There is a wonderful bike trail that's only a couple miles from our house that I haven't been on since high school!
*I want to be able to take the kids to parks to play now that I have a vehicle to get out of the house.
*It would be nice to go visit people, like my mom or my close friends, instead of them always having to come here to see me.
*I'd like to sit under a tree and read a book (which I never do anymore) enjoying a warm summer breeze.
*I'd like to take the kids to the beach (Morgan for the water and Blake for the sand) and then go for ice cream afterwards.
*I'm sure there is more that just isn't coming to mind right now.

I am really looking forward to all these things and not feeling tied down to the computer is really going to help. I do hope to blog on occasion throughout the summer, because I'm sure I can't stay away completely. Plus I have to let you know how I'm doing on the things that I hope to do this summer! I also plan to stop by and visit everyone every once in a while and check in on you ;-)

So with the unofficial start of Summer already underway I'm off to enjoy it! I'll be back to the normal blogging sometime in the Fall. Have a wonderful Summer everyone!! :-)

Will miss you! Have a great blogging break. I have been taking it slow around the blogosphere lately. I have the same problem with sitting in front of the computer when it is nice out.

What a great summer list! I hate that people take blog breaks during the summer because that's when I actually have time to do it! But I totally get it. Enjoy your computer free time!!
