Hello! I hope everyone in the U.S. had a lovely 4th of July! I’ve spent a crazy amount of the past week in a car, in 2 countries and across 9 states. I’m settled down now for a few weeks and very happy to keep Google Maps closed for a while.
Graham and I are in Michigan, and we spent the holiday weekend in Lake City with my immediate & extended family. We had a lovely & relaxing weekend celebrating the 4th, watching fireworks, cooking & eating BBQ, and playing games with my family.
Here’s the Petoskey High School Steel Drum Band performing on the 4th in Lake City, Michigan:
During our two weeks in Michigan I want to spend as much time as possible reading, cooking, and being outside. The blog will be on the back burner a bit, but I will be spending some time online & writing in the mornings, so there will still be several new posts each week. I’m planning on posting a June reading wrap up, photos from Prince Edward Island, and a few book reviews.
Not much other than a massive catch up on The Daily Show and Last Week Tonight from while I was in Canada. Graham and I have a long list of movies we want to catch in the theater while we’re in Michigan.
I just started the audiobook of Mom & Me & Mom by Maya Angelou. It’s narrated by Maya herself, and it’s so wonderful to listen to her voice reading her own work.
So that’s the short update for this week! What’s new with you?
