Thursday Thirteen--Summer Stuff

Things I hope to accomplish before the end of summer:
1. Getting to sleep as late as I want (only I still wake up about 5:30 or 6:00)
2. Savoring and lingering over my coffee in the morning.
3. Wearing whatever is clean and goes together reasonably (read: denim shorts and any t-shirt or sleeveless top), instead of having to look "professional".
4. Hanging the sheets on the line in the sun and wind instead of leaving the dryer running as I rush out the door to work.
5. Falling asleep in sheets that smell like sunshine.
6. Reading mind candy ;)
7. Finishing the three crochet projects I already have started, and starting another.
8. Cooking at least twice a week, instead of depending on Wick to do it.
9. Having lots of company come to visit at the lake.
10. Sitting on the dock (which son Scott and DH Wick just roofed this weekend, so now I have shade all afternoon!)
11. Not having to worry about not sleeping well if I drink coffee late at night, because I don't have to get up early to go to work.
12. Cleaning out drawers and cabinets and sort out the junk drawer
13. Watching the birds, squirrels, ducks, cranes, herons, and listening to the plop of fish in the water, the wind in the trees, and the waves on the shore.

Sounds like a fine summer plan to me! I told someone earlier that I wish I had a line to hang my sheets on. Oh how good you sleep on sun fresh sheets!

Thanks for visiting my place today!

OOOps, is Ron in the doghouse for not being there to help with that roof on the dock?!?!?!

What is on Dr. Jan's "mind candy" reading list?

Nikky, you know Dad--he takes advantage of any helpful hands available. Gizmo, you certainly may come to visit, if you promise not to unlevel the RV again!
