    I love summer!
    Warm (and hot) weather,long days...grandkids home all day so I can see them any time I want.
    I'm going on a short road trip with friends next week and I hope to go to Texas maybe in Aug. (I know that's the worst time of year to go there....).
    Probably moving in Aug too if I can find a job in a new city first.
    What do you have planned?

    Hopefully some camping with DH's family. Spending some time at home working on general outdoor maintenance (moved here 4 yrs ago and still working to get the place looking the way we want it). Helping DH do some remodeling for DS & DIL and for DD & SIL (two more grandchildren due in the fall).

    We're trying to get bids on adding an addition to our house, working on the landscaping in front, and overfull with rescue dogs, so that's all time consuming. We are planning to take a road trip/vacation to Charlotte and up the east coast to see family in August.

    Just lots of quilting, naps and some housework. I retire this Wednesday and I am going to spread housework through the week. I don't like to be hot and not much on outside work.

    Our 25th anniversary is this month and we are taking a trip in July to celebrate. Other than that, it's family and work as usual.

    Had many small trips planned, but instead I'll be getting a knee replacement next week. This is painful and healing time is slow, but if I feel like anything at all, I'll be in the sewing room trying to get some gift quilts done. I can sit when I can't stand.

    Going to a quilt auction in the Lancaster, PA area in July. They also have locally made furniture and some other items.

    There's a quilt show on Cape Cod in early August that I'd like to go to. I'd have to be vacationing there to go to it since it's too far to drive there and back in one day.

    Start a new job, find an apartment or rental house, move to NYC, find a new guild to join, find a take a few classes to complete the requirements for my medical technology license. Haven't taken a class in over 20 years, so this must be interesting.

    Work....... I've had too much time off for medical reasons (including right now) that I only get one week in August. DH and I are going to Lake Tahoe with 5 other couples, The gals were my friends in High School and all participated in my wedding. We all turn 50 this year and decided that we needed to get together and have fun.
    Boss had a cow with this week so anything else I do will have to be on the days I don't work.

    Working on the house (finishing the living room, new windows and siding, then new kitchen), camping with friends, finishing a couple of commissioned quilts, painting and organizing my sewing room, several trips downstate to see grandkids and for a family reunion, and enjoying my parents who are visiting for a month from Florida.

    We're heading to Vegas, Death Valley, Sequioa the Yosemite! YEA!!!!!!!!!! then later in August I'm hoping for St Louis Arch... Don't know why,,, sometimes I get a place stuck in my head and I HAVE to go. it was like that a few years ago with Mt Rushmore... did you know it's free to go to the Monument? you do have to pay for parking though; we were there for 4th of July, they had the celebration the day before, the park was completely empty on that morning, it was fantastic! We brought our own food and had breakfast on the patio below the monument all by our selves, watched the helicopters removing the last of the pyrotechnics from the top of the mountain. That was a great trip!

    Lay low, stay out of the heat as much as possible, do some day trips, go to Marshall's in Arkansas (WooHoo), bust through as much of my stash as I can, go to some of my DGS's ballgames.

    I'll be volunteering at a Christian camp CA sometime this summer, and I'll probably do some Civil War re-enacting as well! Oh, and of course I'll be quilting! :)
