Summer 2012

I am a list making girl; in contrast to my go-with-the-flow sister, lists give me comfort and guidance. What first? What's next? What should I do with this free time? ---> check the list. Unfortunately, however, all the lists in the world do not take away from my terrible enemy, Sir Procrastination. And so I come to you . . . making myself a bit more accountable will aid in my attack and conquer.
For those of you who are "super-getter-doners", please don't laugh too hard. My list isn't grand; but it is plan and I am excited. And for those like-minded people out there . . . maybe we can all help eacho their stay on task?
So, shall we make a list?

What does your summer look like?


  1. I think it's wonderful that you have made a list! I tend to be the more 'go with the flow' kind of person (though only strictly in my schedule. I tend to revolt against any of the 'everyone else is doing it' sort of thing... ;) However, lists are very nice to have every once in a while, especially when I need to get something big done. :)
    My list includes teaching fiddle, reading some books (still deciding which ones!), volunteering at the local nursing home (playing music, talking with the folks, etc), and writing books. I might also be doing some theatre drama, but not sure yet. :)
    Thanks so much for sharing the list! I'll come by every so often and see how you're doing. *wink*. :)
    Love you, dear sister!

  2. Wow, Frannie - I am very impressed with your to-do list! I guess I'm not a "super-getter-doner." :-) You qualify for that in my book!!

    My summer will be pretty relaxed - I'm taking one online English class and working afternoons; I have a couple of knitting projects (socks and a baby afghan), hope to get a garden planted eventually, and would like to sew an apron and make some strawberry jam for winter; and I'm continuing to read through the Old Testament for my Bible classes. Hopefully I'll get all that done! :-)

    Thanks for sharing your summer with us! Yes, I will do my best to keep you accountable - I'll pop in at random times and ask how such-and-such item is going. Because Sir Procrastination is a constant nemesis of mine, too!! :-)


  3. Oh yes, procrastination is a problem of mine as well. :) A while ago I saw a book and each page is devoted for a different random list that they give you the topic/question for. Your love for list making reminded me of that book. :)


Hey there, darling!

I'd love to hear your thoughts -- leave a comment below and I'll do my best to give you a reply. There is nothing sweeter then hearing from my readers!

Love, blessings and a steaming cup of coffee,

Frannie Anne
