September 2015


I don't know how you're summer has been, but mine has been busy! Too busy, unfortunately, to keep up with the blog through the last month of it. Now, I should be able to keep up, at least with the many blog tours I signed up for. I'm still catching up with the dozen reviews I needed to have written a month or two ago...

I worked at a daycare all summer. I fell in love with some of the kids, but by the end, others had driven me insane and made me run out of patience for anybody. Still, I miss those kids who would run up to me and hug me and randomly come to sit on my lap, or the one little girl who kept calling me mommy.

I also went on several vacations with my family. Camping--you know, in the woods with a camper trailer and a fire pit--is something my family does every year. Except, this year, we took it to a new level. In addition to two weekend spent camping, we also spent 8 days traveling down the coast of Washington in our camper. I loved the ocean. Above is a picture of one of a sunset on one of my favorite beaches.

Also on that trip, we stopped by Forks, Washington. I don't know if you know this, but it is the setting for the Twilight Series. I'm not a huge Twilight fan, but it's still fun to say I've been there. At a gas station near the beach in the photo, we also saw the lovely sign in the photos.

 Another fun thing that happened during the summer was my grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary. They asked all six of their kids to bring their families to where my grandparents live in order to celebrate. So, I was able to see my cousins, aunts, and uncles who usually live on the other side of the country...or the world. I loved it so much! That weekend will live in my memory forever.

But now, it is back to college, back to homework, back to work, back to blogging, teaching Sunday School, singing in the church choir, attending writing and academic clubs, visiting with friends, and learning everything I can. Maybe I'll find a boyfriend this year? Today, is Labor Day, so no classes, thankfully. I also found out about two cool "holidays," one that happened yesterday and one today.

I bought a hard copy of A Time to Die by Nadine Brandes yesterday, and it will have to count because I don't have any more money to spend on books for a while. It is one of my favorite books and I wanted a hard copy of it to lend and keep in my bookshelf. I actually found out about the holiday through the author's website.

Here are a few other holidays in September:

Sept 8: International Literacy Day
Sept 12: Chocolate Milk Shake Day
Sept 13: Grandparents' Day
Sept 17: Constitution Day
Sept 19: International Talk Like a Pirate Day
Sept 21: World Gratitude Day
Sept 28: Ask a Stupid Question Day

Will you be celebrating one of these or another holiday this month? What did you do this summer?
