Monthly Forecast: August

August is here! August is my favourite month for a couple reasons, but most obviously because it's my birthday month (18 more days!). August is also the beginning of the shift into fall and cooler weather - much anticipated relief! - though I don't want to wish the month away; I have so many things yet to accomplish this summer.
Like taking tons of photos, going on hikes and boat rides, and eating ice cream and watermelon outside... I only wish I had spent more time doing these things while I was at home last week!

So here's the plan for this month:
  • JOB SEARCH: top priority! Find a job by the end of the month (if not degree-related, then something, anywhere).
  • celebrate my 26th birthday (Mandarin? Oh yes!) 
  • create a 27 Things To Do Before Turning 27 list
  • The Sketchbook Project Collaboration - send it back to Angie after finishing some pages
  • daily yoga - start blogging about it again for accountability 
  • hike every weekend, go for walks during the week - enjoy the beautiful weather!
  • eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables - hit up a few farmer's markets for extra freshness 
  • journal daily - catch up on 366Pages and work on my Sketchbook Project(s) 
  • revamp my blog and Facebook page with a new goddess logo
As for blogging - besides freshening up the whole blog - here are a few things you can look forward to:
  • a few vintage "finds" (inherited from my grandmother & great-grandmother) 
  • photos from my boat ride to the falls when I was up North and from our hikes and walks around Hamilton
  • pages from my many sketchbook, including the Sketchbook Project Collaboration
  • collections: an updated glassware display, beautiful coffee table books 
  • recipes: making the most of fresh summer veggies
  • recommend: a few books I've read recently
I also really need to revisit Science Byte and update that blog a bit.

Lastly, you'll notice that no ads have gone up for August but there are three slots available for September. Click on the Advertise tab for more information.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and productive month!
