July 1st...Already!

So..really... I still can't believe it's July 1st already!  But it is and...happily, for the first time in this 2013 Year Long Adventure, my family joined me in one of my July Quests today.  I am excited to have them sharing this month's adventure with me.

It was a busy day for me.  I spent quite a bit of timing chatting with Mom, Sister, and the Gourmet Hostess.  I also connected with Tea Queen and a couple others friends through text and messaging.  I worked on balancing last month's budget and checkbook, fixed a yummy dinner, and cleaned it up.  After all that, I made time to work on my Quests.

Exercise
After supper, Hubby and I took a brisk walk around the neighborhood with the Twins.  The pups kept us at a pretty good pace....walking with them is not what you would call relaxing.  Since we are doing Exercise Every Day as a Family Quest...Hubby also worked out on his lunch hour and our Scientist and Engineer did push ups and sit ups this evening.

Scrapbook
As soon as we came in from our walk, I began to pull out my scrapbooking supplies to organize and plan for what I will be doing this month.  I hate to admit it...but I'm so behind...I'm currently working on photos from 2004.  I already have pictures cropped and pages laid out for a few years, so that means I can spend my time decorating the pages, taping the pictures down, and journaling on each page.  

Tonight I got everything set up on my desk.  I am now completely prepared to sit down tomorrow and work on album 2004. The plan is to pick up right where I left off last time I scrapbooked a few months ago.  I can't wait!  Scrapbooking is a very relaxing and rewarding activity for me.  It's also...like this blog...a great creative outlet for me.

Tomorrow I have a few items on my Daily To Do list...and as soon as I get those checked off...I plan to sit down at my desk and enjoy some 2004 memories.  Come back tomorrow and I'll share some of those precious memories with you!
