- Check email once a day
- Use internet for business/library related purposes only; no web surfing, recipe surfing, blog reading, blog posting, and so forth*
- Watch TV only when everyone can be present and it's an "event" (no more kids watching something while Mommy gets something done)
*There are lots of summer-type recipes on this site already as well as some in the draft stage. I do plan to do some blog maintenance over the summer (updating indexes, posting some recipes that have lingered in draft form for a while, and so forth). If you're a subscriber, you'll get automatic updates I suppose. If you're not a subscriber, check in once a month or so if you'd like. I'd encourage you all to get away from the computer as well!
I don't know if you get email/reader updates whenever I update an index. If you do, then I apologize in advance for some clutter that will appear because I know you don't "read" the indexes! I'm not very knowledgeable about the whole blog thing, even though I've had this one for 2+ years now. I just don't have the time (or, honestly, the interest) to figure it all out. But, I'm glad for anyone who benefits from the recipes!
Have a great summer! Enjoy some homemade ice cream--easy or more traditional (we did last night over THE chocolate cake). Go pick some blueberries or blackberries. Gorge on watermelon (have it for dinner!). Buy a bushel of Southern peaches at a roadside stand. Grill out for dinner. Isn't summer food the best?!
P.S. I checked my feedburner account for the first time in, like, a year and was flabbergasted to see that I have 185 subscribers/readers! Thanks, everyone. I had no idea there were people out there who don't know me personally who are interested in my little site.
