Blog Summer Camp

Since the 52 lists/52 weeks thing didn't work out so much for me (I thought there would be more direction for our lists), I decided to switch over to the Blog Summer Camp instead. I need a little something to jump start my blogging, and now I'll be blogging everyday in July (maybe more than once if I feel so inspired). So here we go!

Day #1 Provide a photo or sketch or a dramatic rendering of the space where you normally blog.

If I had joined a bit earlier, I would have given you a video tour. Instead you just get a quick snapshot of my work space.
I'd like to say that it isn't normally this messy, but it is. My office is right off the kitchen/family room area and often becomes a dumping ground for anything and everything. Despite it being smaller than most walk-in closets, I frequently share the space with both kids, the cat, the dog (and the fish who resides in my office!) when I'm writing.

Some highlights:
  • My meditation cushion is on the floor between my desk and bookshelf. Gotta work with what you have.
  • I love that I can look out into our backyard and out into the family room/kitchen.
  • The photograph on the wall is of Ancient Art in Utah. I climbed that. Still very proud of myself.
  • The cuckoo clock is from my trip to Switzerland back in college
  • My laptop is sitting there because sometimes I actually use both my laptop and my desktop at the same time. Not sure why.
  • Despite my desk looking cluttered, I'm actually a very organized person. I know where (almost!) everything is.

In choosing a kitchen countertops is something that is done with careful consideration. These tiles are just one way in which a homeowner can use materials to determine the ultimate style and functionality of the kitchen.

Hi! Thank you for sharing your thoughts about summer camps. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about summer camps. Keep it up! This is a good read. You have such an interesting and informative page. I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well.
In Australia, Australian Defence Force Cadets often and almost exclusively run their extended camps and courses over school holiday periods, the vast majority of which provide all food and lodging for Cadets over the course of the camp. However, these camps often last only one or two weeks and thus do not fill up the majority of the summer holiday break. This allows the Cadets (who are aged 12-18 years and therefore the majority attend school) to attend the camps whilst still completing normal schooling.
Keep your student active and engaged this coming summer with a Mathnasium summer camp that will help them avoid the dreaded “summer slide.” The summer slide is the two months (on average) of instruction that children ‘lose’ over the summer due to lack of engagement.
