October Titles // 2018

thinking back to buckets and buckets of peonies in late summer!
 We've had a gorgeous Fall, with sunny skies, bright changing colors, and the rain was practically non-existent (except the one week my friends were here! ugh).  While some people despise the earlier dark, I relish it. The next three months is when I really hunker down, hibernate, slow our lives down significantly and just enjoy quiet, home, and rest. I recognize my seasonal ways and after very full Springs, Summers, and Fall craziness, I'm 100% on board with very little happening. Let the book season begin!

September Titles // 2018

Ani and I reading a giant comic book at the MOHAI about the uses of technology
September was a great book reading month, though I really really wanted to finish the final Harry Potter book, but alas, we're not even half way through it yet. I have one book club pick left this calendar year that I have yet to read, but reading 2 early was really helpful for me-so I could sort of 'get them out of the way' (even though I really liked them!) and go back to my own picks. I hope to do that in the Spring, as well, and not wait and read them in the month we meet. The two I finished this month were excellent picks, so that helped as well. Looking ahead to my calendar I think I'll have a decently slower-paced Fall than I did last year. The kids have a lot of lessons early on (late September through October) but our evenings are very free October-December; which I'm thankful for.
