2011 Goals Update

August is almost over, so it's time yet again for me to reminisce about the month's happenings and to take stock of where I stand in relation to the numerous goals I set out for myself at the beginning of the year.

I'm happy to say that I've kept up with the blog dare challenge and have been posting daily, even when on vacation.  Some days are easier than others, but I've managed to get something posted each day.  I've added a few tabs and organized some of my posts under them to be easier to search for and find.  I have a few posting ideas I've been thinking about, including more recipes and some "theme" type posting weeks, so we'll see where that goes in the future.  I go back to work teaching full time in the fall, so my main goal is to keep up the daily posting and not fall behind on the blog when things get busy at work.

August, like July, was very much about family.  July was spent mostly with my side of the family, but August was about my husband's side.  This is a treat for us because my husband's family doesn't live in Canada.  Traveling to Washington for his cousin's wedding allowed us to see my husband's mom and his brother, who managed to fly in for the occasion.  Etienne only sees his grandma once or twice a year, so we take any chance we can get.  We also spent some time at the beach as a family, which was a well needed family vacation before all the craziness starts in September.

My writing has been sporadic since I've had so many other things to work on, but I hope that when my schedule goes back to normal in September I'll have more time. 

I'm happy with this summer.  It's gone by much too fast, but I guess that's a sure sign that it's been fun!  I've tried to enjoy my time off as much as I can, knowing that I'm back to work full time soon.  I always try to hold on to summer as long as I can, but to be honest, I love autumn because it always feels like a new beginning.  Another few weeks of hot weather, and then bring on the sweaters and the falling leaves!
