|Instagram Monthly Challenge | August|
Some months seem to fly by but August crept slowly. Usually I do this post on the first of the month following the challenge so maybe it feels extra long ago because I'm a week behind.
Or maybe it was just slow.
August was spent inside - it was miserably hot out and we had discovered that all the pain I felt could explode like motion-sensitive ovarian bombs. It just wasn't inspiring for outdoor adventuring (and certainly no hooping).
BUT WE GOT A KITTEN! OK, so technically she made her appearance at the end of last month's collage but the excitement didn't dwindle.
There was my preemie group get together in Connecticut where we ate at Denny's, swam, and drank in the motel hallway (all age appropriate beverages).
I started burning nag champa and wearing jasmine oil because apparently I'm having a flashback to 1999...but I'm lovin' it.
Created my favorite glitter bomb mani yet. Started reading The Walking Dead Compendium (one)...I used it for my "slow" photo prompt because I only read it when doing doorstop duty. ...and because I can't believe I watched a show before reading something. NO! But I will be caught up and beyond by the time season four starts.
Quickie oven dinners became a staple driving the heat up inside; our oven is from the 1970's and heats up like a beast then needs several hours to cool off but it's a necessary evil.
Then there was surgery............which brings us up to date!
I'm glad that summer is over. If it isn't a California one, I'd like to just live in autumn, winter, and spring.
