The problem is...I haven't done anything other than the monthly stuff, with which you all are undoubtedly familiar by now. A meal plan for at least one week (#7), a new cookie every month (#12), and an act of service (#35). I did them all, and I'm proud that I'm keeping up with them!
Before I present you with my June plans, let me just say that the cookies I tried this month were so.good. No really, they were very good. Everyone loved them, with a capital L and probably 6-7 Os. So check out the recipe here. Yummm...
I also made progress on my book reading goal of 30 books (#25). Here's what I read:
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini - Really, really good. I was amazed that a book in which so many depressing things happened could leave me with an overall positive feeling. I guess all the heartbreaking stuff was broken up with enough joyful moments to make everything see more inspiring than depressing. 4 stars.
Delirium by Lauren Oliver - Following the currently popular trend, this book features a female protagonist who slowly comes to realize that the limits of her society are, well, limiting. It's a storyline that I'm getting just a little tired of, which takes off a star by itself, and then I despised the ending, so another half star for that leaves this one at 3 1/2 stars. Pretty good, though.
The Scorch Trials by James Dashner - The sequel to The Maze Runner, which I read last month. I would say it is better than the first one, but maybe only slightly. They are very similar. I like this series, but am kind of starting to feel like I'm reading a reworked version of Lost. It's a lot of questions and not a lot of answers. Which gets kind of frustrating. I'll give it four stars, though.
That takes me up to 15 books. According to Goodreads, that makes me 3 books ahead of my goal. Sweet.
So, June. I really need to get going on some of my one-time-thing stuff. And I've known all along that June was going to be my best chance, since it's in between student teachings and also pre-baby. So look out this month for:
-A blog post every day (#28) - lucky you!
-A party thrown by yours truly (#21)
-Finishing the nursery (#15)
Those are at least the ones I'm committed to. Who knows - maybe I'll have time to do some others, too. Happy June, everyone!
