Book list for July 2018

July was the month I got a sinus infection, both Cody and Evelyn had ear infections, I did a bunch of work, said goodbye to a dear friend who moved far away, was stressed, was sad, and started at least 6 new knitting projects and started a lot of new books. All hail pseudoephedrine and its power to keep me going when I don't feel good and to convince me that starting just one more project or checking out all those books will somehow fix everything.

 It was not a month for finishing much of anything outside of work projects. It all feels so long ago that I initially looked at my page of books read and typed out the books I read in August.

It was just that kind of month.

"I" is for Innocent. Sue Grafton.*

Dark Fields of the Republic: Poems 1991-1995. Adrienne Rich.*

Lumberjanes: Out of Time. Stevenson, Watters, Allen, Laiko. *

My zinnias started blooming, though.

A post for 40 years

This weekend we celebrated my parents' 40th wedding anniversary! We met up at Laine's house, ate so much food, held the baby, chased the toddler, lost track of the big kids, drank coffee, snacked, took pictures, forgot stuff (I switched hotel rooms and left my camera behind in the old room and didn't realize it until the next morning. But then I got it back, so there's a happy ending), ate more food, dressed up, chilled out, and laughed a lot.

It was a fairly perfect way to celebrate a forty-year union that we've been blessed to be a part of.

Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad!
