It’s Monday! What Are You Doing?

It’s been a very relaxing summer so far!  And, I have to admit that I haven’t really done anything too exciting, but that’s okay because I am a pretty boring person anyway!

Yes, I have taken a hiatus from my blog because, well, let’s just say I wasn’t motivated! 😦  But, thanks to my fellow blogger friends nudging me I decided to sit down this morning and type away.  I also joined an online writing group called Teacher’s Write.  I am excited about participating and *lurking* as I improve my own writing and seek ideas how to assist my students with their writing.  This is another reason why I sat down today to blog because today is the kickoff day for Teacher’s Write.  I’m sure I’ll have a some blog posts that give more details about Teacher’s Write as it unfolds. In the meantime, if you’re curious, you can click on the provided link, join us on Twitter #teacherswrite, or join us on Facebook.

On a different note, of course, I am reading even though I have been in a book rut.  I just finished Defending Jacob by William Lundy.  This book earns *5 stars* from me.  I would have loved to have been in a book club to discuss Defending Jacob because I have so many provoking thoughts about the events.  This was my first book by William Lundy so I am looking forward to reading more by this author.  Now I’m off to read/finish The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult.

What I’m not doing today is running and this continues to disappoint me!  Due to a foot injury, I won’t be hitting the road again this week.  This is also a reason why there has been a lack of blog posts, and I will blog about that foot injury one of these days… I am still sort of exercising and you can click on my Exercise Log to see what I have been doing to try to keep fit.  So, today will be a strength training day. My personal trainer will be visiting my house as we tighten and tone those muscles with a little Body Pump!  🙂

Hope you have an awesome Monday and you are enjoying the warm summer weather!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
