Some goals for July


 I'm not sure how it got to be July.  A friend told me recently that after the Fourth of July has come and gone, she feels as if it's all downhill for summer from there.  I do know what she means, but personally I am working at trying to soak up every moment of summer.  I have some blog posts in the works concerning my goals for summer -- looking at it from the perspective of the technical beginning and ending of summer (late June to late September).  Hopefully I can complete those soon and share them with  you all.

Meanwhile, here are some goals for July:

* Memorize at least 4 Bible verses and review some older ones
* Read and study the July chapters in the Daily Walk Bible
* Continue our Daniel Bible study with younger believers
* Help our widowed friend Terry with the challenges of life in general
* Continue study for Sunday School -- A Woman After God's Own Heart
* Get to bed by 9 pm each night  
* Limit sugar
* Drink enough water each day
* Walk and/or exercise each day
* Keep up with Flylady's homemaking zones of the week (with some help from Clean Mama)
* Do something creative each day
* Post in this blog as often as possible
* Post in my Christmas blog daily this month, for Christmas in July
* Continue planning for family birthday gifts and crafting any handmade ones
* Spend a little time on some UFO craft projects
* Continue stocking my Etsy shop and continue selling vintage items
* Keep up with Etsy and trust bookkeeping
* Write at least 4 encouraging notes to friends and family
* Help and encourage my local daughter as I'm able
* Plan meals with a greater emphasis on healthy eating
*  Meet Terry for breakfast out
* Attend our granddaughter's orchestra concert
* Prepare food to share with church family at our Fourth of July church picnic
* Also celebrate the Fourth of July with friends
*  Get some good work accomplished on renovating our camp
*  Plan a hot dog roast at the camp with our older granddaughters
* Get together with our daughter's family and some friends for a cookout
*  Volunteer our time to help with maintenance at a Christian camp as needed
* Assist our friends who just lost their home to fire

HEALTHY HABITS FOR JULY:  Drink more water/get more sleep/get more exercise/limit sugar
WORD FOR 2021: Steadfast


  1. Your friend is not thinking clearly. Ha! Summer has only just arrived by July 4. What has it been? Just two weeks since summer officially began. Yes, there's so much summer left. Now that your camp is working out so well, you don't want to give up any of the season.

    I am sorry about your friends who lost their home to fire. So scary.

    It is true that to get things to happen, one must plan for them. Looks as if you have a lot of fun things lined up.

  2. Here in Florida we feel like we've been having summer for over a month, but we still have a ways to go. We don't cool down much until the end of October, if then. But then our winter is so nice. That's when we enjoy getting outside more. Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July weekend with your family close by.

  3. I feel as if summer has just begun. We are planning to enjoy every bit we can!
