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!
