Summer Vacation Pastimes

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I have an 11 month contract. I am now on my 4th week of vacation. I have one more week to go before I return to work. The first week was preparation for our trip to the Outer Banks. Haircut and pedicure. The week at the beach was great! Our beach house had it's own pool! Last week, I celebrated Father's Day with my Dad. I feel fortunate to have him. He turns 76 tomorrow. I also spent some time gardening. This week, the roofers came to install our new roof. You kind of get used to the hammering after awhile! Since I can't work outside, I have been cleaning house.

What I have done on vacation is become familiar with three new websites. I had not done Twitter before. I still have not tweeted myself, but am enjoying receiving tweets from Women's Health, Joy Bauer, Jillian, Prevention and Dr. Weill. Hulu is another new website for me. It is amazing the number of TV shows you can watch for free. I like to use this when I am working out on the ellipitcal. Finally, Spotify. This website provides free access to listen to alot of music, similar to Pandora.

In conclusion, I am having fun playing on the computer, while trying to get in a workout, some gardening and house cleaning done each day. An 11 month contract is just right for me. It is what I have always had. Just enough time off to enjoy summer!

    Oooh, the Outer Banks! How delightful!

    I am glad you are getting a real vacation with downtime, pool time, playing around and discovering things time.

    Yay summer!
