Morning Meanderings… AUGUST???? Austen!
Friday! And…. August. WHA???? Where is the summer going? I guess my first clue should have been that our County Fair opened this week. I am not a county fair fan ever since the boys were old enough to go on their own with their friends I bowed out of that hot sticky mess. ;) However, my cousin has a daughter who performs on a horse there, and several friends win awards for their breads, and jams, and vegetables and fruits…. in that sense, it is very Gilmore Girls.
Back to August.
August is actually a FULL month. This afternoon I leave for Wisconsin with my friend for the Mud Run for MS in the morning. And then I come back, clean up tomorrow afternoon and go directly to Crosslake where the first day of the Camp Benedict Bike ride will be taking place. I am on the board for Camp and will be late due to this ride being the same weekend as the mud run. I will stay overnight and help cheer the riders in for day two on Sunday – unsure if I am going to be support team or ride day two…
Then after this weekend August explodes into the church annual picnic baptism, the Fall Book Sale for the Library, a possible Zombie run (oh how I want to but it is soooo far away!), Wine and Words, a cabin weekend with my son, and then our Annual cabin trip with friends for Labor Day weekend.
It’s good… it’s full…. and drips into September but I will hold off on those details. :)
I imagine my reading will possibly be light this month due to the schedule, however I hope to participate in the Austen In August event. Jane Austen is one of those authors I want to spend time with. I think I am supposed to, like we are somehow kindred spirits. Her birth date December 16th, is the birth of my oldest son/first child. The date of her death, July 18th, is my Anniversary. Mmmmm hmmmmm…. I need to read Jane. :) I am thinking perhaps Emma. I think I have that one on my Classic shelf.
Have you read Austen? What have you read? What did you think?
