It’s super hard to believe but this guy, the boy, the lad, the college kid, is turning 21 this Wednesday. In September he moves away to college to complete his B.A. He is counting down the days. I know you are all wondering how I am possibly old enough to have a child this age. Right? You are wondering?
Trying to decide how we will spend the day. Yesterday we did the dreaded back-to-school shopping. Crowds and I do not mix. So today, I feel like I need a little break. Maybe some time outside.
My son is heading out of town to celebrate his birthday with friends but we will be celebrating on Saturday with a nice dinner out. I hope to grab pics.
Nothing this week except rehearsals for Little Shop. Now that I freed my Tuesdays up, I need to start doing what I have been trying to do for so long. Write a book.
I finished The Summer Demands by Deborah Shapiro and really loved it. I will get the review posted soon.
I also finished and reviewed I’ll Be Gone in the Dark.
Now that I finished those two I am back to The Scent Keeper.
I stumbled upon Drunk History and I love it. It’s especially funny after I did all that history reading to help my daughter with her class. Somehow I never pictured Lincoln as a nerd. Who knew?
New Things I’ve Tried:
I’ve tried a few new things this week but I can’t remember what they were. Seriously.
Great smelling candles. It’s kind of a dumb thing to list but I love candles. They really cheer me up and it doesn’t matter what season I am in because there is a candle for every season. My fave are the Capri Blue Volcano candles from Anthropologie.
My question for you this week? Were you a backpack kind of kid or a binder kind of kid? I always had a backpack but my daughter likes binders but the stuff flies everywhere.
