June already! I suppose time flies when you’re having fun…or getting over a cold. I had a few things in mind for this month, and the rest of them rushed through my fingers onto the keyboard themselves. I love it when that happens.
The first thing on the list is the thing I hope to accomplish first: get over this cold! I am getting close, and I can’t wait to be able to breathe normally again. I guess it’s a blessing that I haven’t been sick in so long that I forgot how annoying it is. I’m thankful that this thing is running its course, and I wouldn’t mind if it decided to shorten that course by a day or two.
My next big quilting project is an exciting one–I am making a laptop case. Given how much we’ve been traveling, I think it will be a really nice alternative to the heating pad cover I have been stashing my computer in. I know, I’m all class! I’ve got the fabric and the notions all picked out, and I can’t wait to get started.
I am woefully behind on Project Life, and this makes me sad because I so enjoy putting the pages together. I need to order a new batch of pictures, and then I’ll be ready to go.
Summer has never been my favorite season (fall forever!), but it does have plenty to recommend it. Tomatoes! Cherries! And our freezing cold swimming pool. It gets a little hotter here in the summer than I’d really like, but having a pool to jump into makes it all so much better.
And we’ve got a bit of travel lined up for this month. Eric’s mom is coming (yay!), and we’ll all be heading to Palomar and then down to San Diego for a few days. I’ve actually never been, and I am super looking forward to it.
This month Eric and I will celebrate our two year anniversary. Hurray! We have a little trip planned, but mostly I’m just excited to spend a little time with him looking back and looking forward. It’s no exaggeration to say that Eric is the best thing that ever happened to me, and he doesn’t even mind me telling him that 17 times a day. He’s a keeper!
And, of course, there will be pictures. So many pictures.
I’ll be back in July with an update (May goals updated here).
Update, July 2013: This was such a fun month. I knocked that cold out fairly quickly, and I was ecstatic to be breathing freely again. I was still struggling with it a little when we went up to Palomar, but the altitude really made my ears pop: glorious! We had such a fun time with Eric’s mom there and in San Diego. Anytime you can spend a whole day at a world-class zoo and the next day hiking on trails overlooking the ocean? Well, that’s a pretty good time indeed. I have been swimming a ton this month, which I am so happy about. In part, it’s due to my new favorite swimming buddies, the twin four-year-old daughters of my awesome friend Hillary. They are the cutest and the sweetest, and they are the most fun to play Marco Polo with. They make me laugh all the time, and I just adore them. Project Life is chugging along–the hardest part of it, which I did in June, was going through all my photos to choose which ones to order. Done and done! So now I’m ready to go. And I have a new PL buddy. Super fun! The laptop case is also coming along. It’s about 1/4 done, but that is one of the hard quarters, so I’m still patting myself on the back. I hope I always remember how I set up the box fan right behind my sewing machine on the hot days, so cold air would be blown straight into my face. Again: glorious! Eric and I had a fantastic time in Big Bear celebrating our anniversary (we busted out the entirety of “California Love” while kayaking, if that gives you any idea), and we are more grateful than ever for each other, and that we found each other. 471 pictures attest to that, and that’s not even including all the ones he took of me. Hope you had a spectacular month as well!
