In summary - these were my five goals...
1. Read 5 specific books
2. Exercise every day
3. Make Ava an item of clothing
4. Garden - plant a veggie patch
5. Norwegian - improve conversational skills
I am now up to chapter 3 of Keller's "The Meaning of Marriage." Its a great book, asking the question "What is the point of marriage?" in a culture that suggests its just a piece of paper. I'm really enjoying this one - I'll keep you posted on how it develops! Since I've started it, I've discovered a ton of my friends are reading it too!
My workout regime has started with a vengeance, and so far has incorporated...
* dance classes
* Nell McAndrew workout DVD (seriously hardcore!)
I have yet to attempt the park gym equipment, but my friend Ellie and I are going tomorrow... I'll give you a full report on that one... (probably without pictures - !!)
Nothing to report on the clothing front, I'm afraid, unless you count the hat that I made for Ava the other day by knotting her muslin to keep the sun out of her eyes... I was going for something a little more aesthetically pleasing, though!
OK... so I haven't started my veggie patch, but I have made a start with a herb garden... does that count???!
Yesterday afternoon, I started working my way through my Norwegian text book... I'm going to try and do a little bit every day and ask Dave to speak norwegian with me a little bit more. My plan is, in the summer, to speak Norwegian the whole time we're in Norway - lets wait and see if I manage it!
So that's the latest on my Get Good Summer... how are you guys getting on? Leave your comments below!
