Summer 2010 – Update

I posted about my Summer 2010 plans a few weeks ago, so I thought that now would be a good time to catch up and see how I’m doing.

Here’s what I’ve done so far:

Getting Organized:

I’ve been on a serious organization bent the past few weeks.  I massively cleaned up my craft studio, so that now it’s a bit more conducive to actual creativity.  I got all my files organized, which is very good, because now I can actually find paperwork about my student loans and my retirement plan without searching for twenty minutes.  I still have a box of stuff sitting in there that I need to put up on eBay, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

Catching up on crafting

I’ve gotten some major sewing done lately, including a lot of alterations, re-cons, and even a few projects from scratch.  I’ll have some posts with pics of these projects up soon.  I’ve been slowing working on knitting up a blanket with my sock yarn stash.  For some reason, my knitting mojo is waning right now, and that’s about as much as I feel like working on at this time.  I haven’t done any spinning at all.

Being green while caring for my spirit and mind

Alright, I have a confession – I haven’t gotten on my bike once yet this summer.  For shame, I know.  It’s just so blasted hot and humid, but I know that shouldn’t be an excuse.  I’ve checked out some books for research and I’ve been dabbling in them, but I haven’t read as much as I should.  I’ve been trying some awesome new recipes, and I’ve been practicing yoga a lot more.  I must have been crazy when I had planned on hiking this summer, because it’s way too hot for that right now.

Preparing for the next school year

I’ve been working on reading a lot of YA books, I’ve been writing my LibraryThing reviews, and I’ve gone to a couple of work trainings.

Overall, I think that my summer is going great so far.  I’ve been managing my money pretty well, and I’ve been finding plenty of ways to keep myself entertained.
