A few things for August have been put up over at etsy. The photos are terrible as our camera begins a rapid decline to electronic death. There will be more bags popping up this week as I continue to get my act together and finish unpacking. MmmmHmmm. Still not done unpacking.
And so we continue.
What I did on my summer vacation:
2. I read. A lot.
books read in July [and my ratings]
A River Runs Through It (again) [*****]
The Secret Life of Bees (again) [*****]
Eat, Pray, Love [*****]
The Kite Runner [****************]
To Train Up a Child [**** once I got past my pride]
Created to be His Help Meet [**** again, the pride thing]
Letters from a Skeptic [****]
A Delirious Summer [***.5]
Lost in Rooville [***.5]
The Wonder Spot [***]
The Blue Shoe [**] I don’t know why, but this book bugged me]
David Copperfield [*****]
half of To Have and Have Not (it’s hard to share a book with someone) [**** but not finished]
I forgot how difficult Hemingway is. Either he’s a genius or this book- thin, I might add- was kickin’ my educated bootie when I left it in Great Falls. Sheesh.
Now, don’t be mad at the number of books I read. I had no friends as a child. As a result, I read extremely fast and consider all the characters I ‘meet’ long lost friends. This should explain much about me and my imagination.
And, this just in:
My father reports that my brother received his orders for their next assignment. We all assumed it would be Santa Barbara, sunny California…but as it turns out, it’s Colorado Springs, snowy Colorado. This thrills me to no end. They will be there for 4 years starting this November 1st…which means plenty of skiing, camping, and side trips (hint hint) for the Mulder family of TexasNorth!
Off to make zucchini bread…
