Reading: I'm finally finishing up Issac's Storm by Erik Larsen. And waiting to get back to the top of the wait list so I can complete A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.
In non-fictio, I am finally reading through The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. Confession: I have avoided this book like the plague. Because some of the things I have seen in reviews sound a little out there for me. But I have decided to give it a chance, use what (if anything) I find helpful and leave the rest. Then, I have 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker next in the queue.
Eating: I had hoped July would be a better eating month. However... beginning the month on vacation - which involved lots of eating out, French toast breakfast (and one with chocolate gravy!) - the female offspring's birthday, and an overwhelming craving for ice cream - it was not to be. I did do some breakfast and lunch meal prepping once we were home again. Which definitely helped keep me a little more on track! More of that needs to happen in August.
Working On: Would you believe washcloths? Yep... more and still. I've also been hard at work on some bath puff orders and a moose hat. I took time during vacation to start on a beautiful wrap for myself. Who knows when I'll get a chance to finish it!
Enjoying: My new little car. It is just so cute and I love driving it.
Anticipating: The male offspring goes back to classes on the 14th. The grand baby starts kindergarten later this month. And... The solar eclipse coming up on August 21!
Feeling: Honestly... today I'm a little tired. I didn't sleep well last night.
How about you? What are you up to as August begins? How are you feeling? Anything you're really looking forward to this month?
