Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about Summertime!

These are some of the things I plan to do this summer.

1. Read, read, read! Reading is my favorite thing to do. I have the new
Julia Quinn Novel. I want to re-read the Harry Potter books (again). I want to read a number of the classics and history books I have on my shelves.

2. Enjoy reruns of two of my favorite shows: 24 and House and new episodes of one of my other favorites: The Closer.

3. Spend lots of time at
the lake.

4. See
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest repeatedly! I love the first movie and the 2nd one looks absolutely fabulous. I saw a trailer for it today and wanted to scream with excitement!!! I already have tickets for the 11:59pm showing on 6 July. It is going to be great!

5. Celebrate my favorite secular holiday, Independence Day!!!

6. Get a nice tan, but no more sunburns!

7. Exercise and lose some weight.

8. Do more writing at my blogs:
A Lady's Ruminations and A Lady's Diversions (this one).

9. Help my mother clean out the house (which means going through childhood toys and things.).

10. Get better organized! I tend to stack things up.

11. Finish my Wuthering Heights shawl for this month's
Knit the Classics project.

12. Do lots of cooking, especially using recipes from
Rachael Ray, my favorite person from the Food Network.

13. Enjoy myself!

What are your plans for this summer?

Sorry I missed you yesterday. Thanks for stopping by my TT. I hope that you are able to accomplish all your goals this summer. I love the show House and would love to read more than I do...although I have already finished two books and have several more in the wings.

Thanks, again, for stopping by.

Lady Jane said...

Oh, thank you, Susan! I only just put it up this afternoon! Thank you for visiting. House is awesome! Which books have you read and which do you plan to read? Thanks!

You know, I was looking in my closet and was aghast to find about 20 books I had bought and not THAT is embarrassing. May have to do a list on that next week.

I love Pirates of the Carribean, too....maybe not as much as you:-)...but it was a good movie and one of the few that I actually WENT to the theatre to see.

Great list.

Your summer sounds like my kind of summer! The lake looks so peaceful. I am doing so much reading already, I love to lay out on my deck and read. And of course 2 hours of House on Tuesdays! I think I will visit the art museum and Ladew gardens and just try to soak some culture.

Christine said...

I'm sorry I missed you too on Thursday! Glad to see you posted pics of Johnny!Hope you have a great time on the 4th!

Going to see Pirates is the plan for my Birthday! I took the kids to the library already. I'd like to get out and start walking to some audio tapes...Plans to go to San Diego are still in the works. My 3 yr. old wants to go to the beach.

sorry it took me so long to get around...haven't been online in the last couple of days.

I love Rachel Ray too!

Thanks for visiting my TT:)

TLC said...

I like Rachael Ray's food. I have both of her new cookbooks. But her personality drives me up a wall.

Sounds like quite a list of things to do.

I love reading, Rachel Ray (and the rest of the food network)! Great list!
