August Roundup

This was an interesting month. On the one hand, it was a bummer because of being sad over Little Man’s leaving and my health junk. On the other hand it was pretty nice. I got to read a lot of audiobooks due to forced downtime. I also scrapped and wrote a lot. Jason worked a ton of OT this, and we generally hunkered down in the house most of the month.

In August

We watched-
Lots of Olympics!
Sherlock Holmes 1&2
Lots of the Big Bang Theory
The Hunger Games
The second season of the BBC Sherlock Holmes

I read-
The Mummy Case by Elizabeth Peters
Lion in the Valley by Elizabeth Peters
The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, starting my obsession
I started Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, but haven’t finished it yet.

The Curse of the Pharohs by Elizabeth Peters
