The second pile (the one I'm referring to here) is the pile of books which aren't library books. They are either borrowed from someone, or have been given to me. Since there is no deadline to read these books, this pile just tends to grow. For example, Janice gave me a book quite a few years ago about parenting kids ages 2-6. Since Rachel will turn six in a few weeks, both my kids have basically outgrown that book. And I still haven't read it.
here). It's been sitting in our living room for a few weeks now waiting for a sunny day. I need to spray mount the tea cups on the canvas and I want to do it outside. With the amount of rain we've been having, sunny days have been few and far between. But they do exist, so I need to catch one of them.
This is the start of my Kenya reading pile.
Now to be fair, the kids and I spent about half an hour on the front yard the other night and made some serious progress, so I do have some hope that this will get finished eventually.
7) Weed and plant the front bed. Yeah, all that rain has been good for the growing things but makes it tough to get the growing things planted. I've had impatiens for this bed for about four weeks now and I really want to plant them. And I've been keeping three shamrocks (mostly) alive inside since before St Patrick's Day and I want to get them outside.
9) Clear old pictures off of the iPad to make room for new ones. Remember this post? I'm sure I'll have another one once I go through the 3000 pictures currently on there.
10) Go through the kids' clothes and fully complete the size/season switch over. Rachel's is mostly done, due to the fact that she has less drawer space but Sam, with his abundance of drawers, might still have size 5 shorts hanging around. And he's in size 7 or 8 so it's definitely time to do some clearing out. For a funny story about "Sam doing clothes" when he was about two, read the last paragraph of this post!
11) Try not to go insane. We'll see if I manage to blog and let you know if I'm accomplishing this goal :)
Those are my June goals. What are yours?
