Summer Plans

On my master to-do list for Summer 2010:
  • finish production for Fiesta jewelry collection
  • photograph and list new jewelry on my website
  • do a photography session with models wearing my jewelry
  • create a small ad campaign targeting jewelry clients in Mozambique
  • lots and lots of gardening
  • plant some squash
  • make blackberry jam with the berries from our garden
  • paint Rico/my mom's home office a nice steel blue
  • paint the tv room a dark amber-ish color
  • rip out carpet downstairs and install new wood flooring (together with Rico, obviously)
  • have a brazilian bbq
  • finish the drawing of my rehearsal dinner dress
  • organize my art supplies
  • get a better filing system for all of my papers
  • formalize my translation business
  • continue typing up my old journals
  • hang our hammock in the backyard
  • organize and print photos from our time in Mozambique
  • go hiking on a new trail
  • have an almond dessert party
  • get a massage
  • go to a friend's wedding in Houston
  • go to our cousin's wedding in Rio

Sounds like fun, no?

Ali, are you sure that Rico will look best in steel blue? ;)

Ah, I'm looking forward to ripping up carpet and refinishing a wood floor alone. Hmm ... maybe a husband sounds less repulsive to me than normal right now? lol

Sounds like a fun list!

~Rainbowlens - Our travel plans are a bit up in the air still, as we're trying to fly on award tickets. It would be great to meet for lunch! Email me a number where I can reach you. ali.b.amaro at gmail dot com

~NOLA - Actually, I think Rico will look best in a slightly darker, more saturated blue. ;) You crack me up. And yes, a husband comes in wonderfully handy when it comes time to rip up and replace flooring.
