The Summer Routine.
Posted June 15, 2010on:
Now that summer is here, I’m finding myself in need of a new routine. If I don’t have a routine, I won’t get anything done. At all. While I don’t have students in need of attention starting at 7:55 each morning, there is a small garden to keep alive, a tiny flock of chickens to tend, and chores in the community garden. Throw in a tutoring student, a stack of books, and some cooking, and that’s my summer.
In the spirit of a relaxed routine, because it is summer, after all, I decided the best way to get everything done is to divide things into outside and inside tasks. So, I get up in the morning and work on things outside until I can’t stand to be in the heat anymore, then I come inside and divide the rest of the day between reading and keeping up with whatever needs to be done around the house.
And it is so lovely.
