July Currently

Aloha everyone!  July already!! I have a few days right?  But, Farley is a bit early and that's okay because I have some time on my hands this morning.

I am a morning person. I love the mornings, cool quiet and peaceful.  Here on the North Shore it is very country, think Third World, lol!  In the morning every bird is up and chittering about including the neighborhood roosters.  I just love the sound of the morning doves though.  I sit here and enjoy it all before the sun and kids rise.

My summer is at its halfway mark!  I really have been busy with revamping lots of old TpT products, taking a Sustainability course for school and having had my family here for two weeks.  My class is really the only thing stressing me out.  It is a lot of work and I have already fallen behind due to a mistake in one of my assignments (Insert sigh, and sad face).  I need to really focus and get my behind in gear to get it all done.

One of my sweet families gave me a gift card for a massage and I have not used it yet.  I think I will be scheduling an appointment this week.

Tips for new bloggers? Farley said it very well, don't let it take over your life.  I seriously have to schedule time that I am allowed on my computer.  I keep a planner and write out my ideas for posts and when I will post them.  I use it specifically for blogging.  I know lots of great bloggers just make their own planners, but mine is a cute one I found at Target.

I am off to get my house in order and get my girls ready.  They are camping out over at a friend's house tonight and they are very excited!  I am too. An evening to not have to cook and sit in front of the TV watching adult television!! What's not exciting about that?!


  1. LOVE your tips and tricks- that is my new mantra this next school year so I can retain some sanity :) A massage does sound like a lovely idea :)

  3. I can't believe your summer break is already half over. My last day of school was June 14th so mine had just begun (but seems to be flying by quickly). Hope your class goes well. Summer stress is no fun!

  4. I'm a morning person too. I get most of my computer work done then! It's so quiet. No roosters though. LOL! I think I'll get a simple planner too. Good idea. I have a notebook that I keep for TpT ideas, but i need something more organized for blogging. Good luck with your class. I'm sure you'll do great!

  5. A massage and a peaceful night home sound like two great ideas!!

  6. Dang! I got a massage gift card from my hubby for my b-day back in MARCH and keep forgetting about it! Thanks for the reminder. :)

  7. So I am finally making it over for currently.... Your summer is half over, that's so sad. My summer started June 27 and I am trying to enjoy every single minute.

    Hope you enjoyed that massage.
