It's the first week of school, so no long posts are going to happen. But I had some great highlights in August that I want to share.
Unlike July, with it's trips to Maine, Iceland, Austria and Germany, August was spent much closer to home. Our only trips were to the Cape. Perfection.
As per one of my August goals, I did some decluttering. My desk looks a million times better than when I last mentioned it, yay!
I also managed to cross my favorite pond (a 1 mile swim), 3 times! It was a good accomplishment, though I still prefer our slightly shorter swims, especially when we swim at night and I'm hungry for dinner :)
A new spin on my favorite cereal, Cheerios! I now eat them with unsweetened vanilla almond milk, blueberries and banana.
Our garden has been producing summer squash and zucchini in August. I've been enjoying the pizza version of these yummy veggies. It's super easy to make. Just slice the zucchini/squash, put in the oven on 400 for about 10 minutes. Take them out, put on some tomato sauce and cheese, and put back in the oven for about 2 minutes, just until the cheese melts. Delicious.
I only read 2 books this month… what?! The first was Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld, author of American Wife and Prep. It was good, but not my favorite. I started our blog book club book, Ladder of Years, but hated it immediately and gave it up. I very rarely do this so I'm proud of myself for actually following through. I was rewarded with a wonderful book next, called Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. Absolutely loved this book and would highly recommend it, though maybe have some tissues available :)
Goals for September:
Not going to lie, I am so shocked September has actually arrived this quick I've barely considered goals. Here are a few I have off the top of my head.
1. Yoga and Spin. Go to yoga at least three times. Go to spin at least twice. I aim low. I still want to keep up swimming a lot this month.
2. Read more. 2 books is not enough.
3. Be productive and survive the first month of school :)
Keeping it easy this month! How was your August?
