I want to like you. I really do. I like the idea of seeing what my friends are reading and sharing what I'm reading. I really need to be able to track what I'm reading and what I have still on the to-be-read pile. Finding like-minded readers is a fun idea. And setting a reading goal each year is my favorite part of the site.
But for all these good ideas, I really don't like you. I forget that once in awhile and drop by for a visit only to leave frustrated and unfulfilled. And then I waste an hour looking on the web for an alternative. So if you want us to be friends, you're going to have to make some effort to change a few things. Here's some good places to start:

For some reason, I'm really excited about summer this year. It's not that I don't usually like the summer but I'm rarely excited about it. I don't like the heat and humidity we get and summer always means bugs so there's that. I don't go on vacation so I don't have that to look forward to do. And I often spend more time alone in the summer than I do at other times in year, so summer often means a lonelier time for me.
In spite of all that, I'm looking forward to summer. I was a bit more proactive than I have been for awhile and have planned some fun things to do, even making a bucket list. And I'm determined to do them even if I end up doing them alone. This summer, I'm going to:
• Visit Annapolis
• Find a pretty spot near a river or lake and have a picnic. (or two)
• Host an outdoor movie night at my house for all my friends and family
• Learn to make biscotti
• Eat breakfast on my patio every day (unless it's a downpour!)
• Host a Taco Tuesday party
• Go to a carnival
• Attend a classical music concert
• Go to the Maryland State Fair
• See a show at a dinner theater
This list is kinda long for all that I have going on with work this summer but I'm determined to soak in every bit of summer fun I can this year. Bring it on!
