July Progress and August PowerSheets Goals

Share [Sassy_Social_Share]

When August days are hot an’ dry,
When burning copper is the sky,
I’d rather fish than feast or fly
In airy realms serene and high.
– Paul Laurence Dunbar

I do love to fish and have to say this was fun, too! We’ve had our heads in the clouds lately, kicking off three weeks of sabbatical by parasailing with Grace. It was, indeed, serene. We saw dolphins from the sky and Grace loved every minute of it. From time with my parents in Florida, to an RV trip to Colonial Williamsburg this past weekend, this sabbatical has been a time of renewed perspective—seeing things from a different view.

Ahead in this new month: preparing for the new school year, a trip to Bald Head before we start lessons for the year, updating our family budget as the kids have grown, and focusing on my daily habits. Here’s what’s on my Tending List for August—all action steps from my 2022 Goals.

What goals are you tending to in August? I’d love to hear!

    Here are a few:

    Month: fly to visit son and his wife for a long weekend and get together with friends
    Weekly: exercise three times and write three times
    Daily: pray, drink water, and read a chapter of nonfiction
