The summer of doing things

After I found out that Mr. T would be away for eight weeks this summer studying in the next state, I made a commitment to myself that I would do things. All kinds of things. Things that I've always wanted to do, things that I didn't necessarily want to do in the beginning, and things that I hadn't planned on doing but did anyway. This kind of explains my absence on the blog and I apologize but N does such an outstanding job! By the way, N is doing her thing this week and on a much needed vacation.

So this summer, the summer of doing things, there was boating (and tubing rather unsuccessfully for the first time!).There was camping.There was visiting the farmer's market in Madison, WI.There was the Basilica Block Party.
There was going to Washington, D.C.
I don't know about you but I tend to get very comfortable in my routine. I'm kind of a quiet person too so making a commitment to try new things has really allowed me to step out of my comfort zone, meet new people, and experience some very fun things. Now I get to regroup for a few days until Mr. T returns home and then we're off to the beautiful Pacific Northwest for some family time.

What new thing do you want to try or have recently tried?

Wow Tia! Good for you :-)

I can't think of a single new thing I did this year :-( Too busy during summer. Maybe in winter!

My goodness you've been busy! I know how hard it is the push yourself outside of that comfort zone, good for you! I'm going to have to make an attempt to do some pushing myself.
