Summer Goal Setting

June 23, 2011

This summer after talking with our kiddos about goal setting.  I decide one of my goals is to read more.  I love to read, but rarely find the time between working, the kid's schedules, housework, yard work and the list goes on and on.  But not this summer, I have set a goal to read at least 15 minutes each day.  Now that may not seem much, and it isn't but hopefully I can treat myself to extended times in the near future.

But not this summer, I have set a goal to read at least 15 minutes each day.  Now that may not seem much, and it isn't but hopefully I can treat myself to extended times in the near future. 
Tonight, I am starting on my way to reading some of these lovely books that I have so been wanting to read.  What summer books are on your to read list?  I would sure love to hear.

Have a wonderful weekend, sweet friends.

I want to get the book One Thousand Gifts. I've seen it on many blogs and think it is something I would like. Not even sure I can find it here though. I haven't read since last summer so plan to pick back up all those books I started and didn't finish. I will need reading material for our upcoming trip -- we leave on the 29th for a 10-day holiday. Have a fabulous Friday and happy reading. Tammy
