I have been fielding questions all week about what a person does when one doesn't have any job to go to, no kids, and an entire summer to do it. I know some of them want to hear that I am contributing to society in some meaningful way but the truth is that I am simply and yet significantly using the summer to just be. Even the word rejuvenation sounds too lofty for what I am doing. I am reading books and sitting by the pool. I am trying to dote on my husband and even develop a few talents.
One of the talents I want to explore is photography and to hold myself accountable for progression I am taking a picture a day. I have a fairly simple camera and not a lot of technical skill but I want to start "seeing" more things in day to day life.
Tuesday: Walk in Cook Park with a teaching friend
Wednesday: Made summer calendar and set all my goals officially down on paper.
Thursday: Decided I should set a new goal about improving culinary creativity.
Friday: A day of shopping and swimming with Katie.
Saturday: Playing Mafia with the youth during a ward camp out.
Sunday: We both read ferociously today.
