Nine weeks to achieve my five goals (Get Good Summer ends on the first Monday in September...) Hope I'm not being too ambitious!
This was one of my goals last year, which completely went to pot when I discovered I was pregnant, and spent the rest of the summer feeling sick and hanging my head over the toilet. Nice. Getting rid of my pregnancy weight is high on my to-do list, and at the end of the day, I just FEEL so much better when I've had a bit of exercise... so I'm going to be doing a lot of cycling, swimming in the Norwegian fjords, and I might try my hand at a new sport... any suggestions?!? I'm feeling the love for Pilates or something like that, but feeling a bit nervous about joining up to something... hmmm... well... its a Get Good Goal now, so I'd better act on it!
2. Make homemade lemonade
This is something I have ALWAYS wanted to do! A couple of years ago, some friends came to visit and brought with them some homemade lemonade. It was DELICIOUS and I decided there and then that one day I would have a go at making up some of my own. Well, life happened. And it was busy, and I've never got round to doing it, mainly because there are always more important/pressing things to be doing. But thats the whole point of Get Good Summer, and so I'm pleased to finally have an excuse to give it a go!
3. Read through the Bible
I'm pretty sure I have read all of the Bible at some point, but I have jumped around and dipped in and out. When David gave me my journalling Bible at Easter, I was pretty determined to finally attempt to work my way right through, beginning to end. I know I won't achieve that this Summer (reading the WHOLE Bible is perhaps a bit ambitious in 9 weeks) but I want to make a good go at it, and my aim is to read my way through Genesis, Exodus and Leviticus by the start of September...
4. Scrapbook for Heidi
explain her Kawasakis to her and as she comes to terms with that. So I need to get my photos printed and dig out all her things to stick into it!
5. Make three things from this book
In the midst of Heidi's illness, somebody from church very sweetly gave me this book. I LOVE it! It has such cute things in it and they are really easy to make, so I'd like to have a go at making three of them this summer!
Last year was, in the midst of morning sickness, a total disaster!
This year is going to be a success. I've decided (!!) I'm hopeful that running this linky will give me the incentive to keep going and actually make these nine weeks of summer count for something...
So here's what you've got to do...
Join up your "Get Good Summer" goals post to the linky below and share your 5 goals for this summer - they can be as varied and random as you like. Just five things that you have wanted to do, but have lacked the enthusiasm/incentive to do them. Here's your chance! Then each Monday, link back here and let us know how you're getting on! I will be doing the rounds checking out each of your posts, stealing some ideas, no doubt, and sharing some comment love. Why not take a look at some other bloggers Get Good Summer Goals and get some inspiration?

If you aren't a blogger, just share your goals in the comments section - we'd love you to join us and make this a "Get Good Summer!"
