Well, it’s the end of June, and school’s out!
And that means it’s Report Card time.
On June the 1st, I shared four June goals with you. Let’s see how we fared, and in honour of the end of the school year, we’ll assign a grade to each goal.
Goal #1: Ride my bike at least twice.
Explanation: You wanna know the total whole truth and nothing but the truth? I am scared of The Green Monster. More than a few times, the thought crossed my mind to take the bike out for a spin. Then I’d make a face like this
…and go do something else. Or drive or walk my errand. I have nothing further to add about this goal.
Goal #2: a) Finish the lacy baby blanket and b) finish the “Marnie” cardigan for Mom
Explanation: I knew from the outset that completing the baby blanket was a long shot. I made great progress, but it’s not done.
I’d say I have enough yarn left to do 2-4 more repeats of the pattern, then I’ll do the garter stitch border, and wrap ‘er up.
Mom’s sweater – now that was a success! Mom was able to wear her sweater on the
hottest day of the year by the middle of the month:
Explanation: I did finish one book: Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich (one of the Stephanie Plum series). After that, I started dabbling in a couple of other library choices…still taking a thinking-break, and there’s nothing really worth mentioning at this time.
Goal #4: Get Out and About and enjoy the summer evenings.
Explanation: Coulda done better, coulda done worse. I got out to a movie…and did a few random errands a couple of evenings. I am not an evening person. On a positive note, I did a lot of socializing between the hours of 5-7 p.m., and during the afternoons I was off work.
Happily, the Outings of the Month ended up working out. Better modified than never.
How’d y’all fare with your own June plans? Seeing as how I was a more-or-less straight A student all through school, I am a little chagrined at this progress report!
Tomorrow: what’s the plan for July? You may be surprised…
