As Robin would put it I'm....
*in blogging time, anyway. In real life October is going to be here soon and make it feel like today was yesterday. (Does that even make sense? No? Whatever.)
Also, due to my perfectionist/procrastinator side (I don't even know what) I've put off writing this post for farrrrr too long. And I am now going to do it. TODAY.
So excuse any mistakes or general rambling-ness. As soon as I hit that little orange publish button I'm heading outside to enjoy the sun. Which is what you should be doing. Stop reading this post and go enjoy the sun. :P
Without further ado, lately I've been...
Back in June my family took a trip to northern MI which was one of the best vacations evah. Then we had to go back up north early in July to pick up my brother from his Civil Air Patrol encampment (which I like to jokingly call a summer camp, but he hates that term because CAP is way more squared away than a summer camp. It's basically the military for anyone under age 18. I just find "summer camp" is an easier way to explain it than "encampment". Anyways...)
Most of my photos from that trip are in the laborious process of being edited (why did I shoot them all in RAW....) so thus here is one photo of Lake Huron from my iPad:

The less said about that the better.
A fan art contest! An Ilyon fanart contest to be correct. It's already over and I didn't win (*sad face*) but it was still great fun to enter, and everyone had some really awesome entries. Go check it out. (I'm number 12 of the 2017 fan art contest section.)
|my favorite kind of road|
I'm hoping to do a separate mini book review post some other time (because I've been reading SO any good ones lately) but since we were speaking of Ilyon.....
EXILES IS RELEASED AND I'VE BEEN READING IT AND IT'S EPIC.
|literally me while reading|
I picked up some 1930's and 40's swing music cds....a big soft red sweater...and a practically-new winter coat for a dollar.
I really love that coat. I mean, A DOLLAR. <3
*If that's not an actual verb than it should be. :P
Applying for jobs:
Which meant writing my very first resume. *cries*
Just kidding...it was actually kind of fun, though really confusing. Like, what do I write for skills? I can knit a scarf? I can mop the floor while listening to Broadway showtunes and making clotted cream in the mixer? (Scratch that. I whipped the cream too much and it had to be thrown out. :P)
I'm a professional GIF user???
And then there's the age old question of whether the word "homeschool" on your resume will make someone more or less inclined to hire you....?
|but flowers make things better, right?|
A LOT of movies (hopefully I'll get a mini movie review post up) but a couple days ago I watched the Broadway version of Newsies with this girl and it was GRAND fun. Here's a few screenshots of our conversation (hope you don't mind my sharing them, Naomi) (or NY-omi....ha ;)).
Also, can we appreciate that I may have taken the best screenshot of Jack Kelly* ever? Thank you.
*Or Jack Jelly. You know. Whatever auto correct decides. :P
I got a package of various tea flavors (this one) (yeah, I know it's just the usual grocery store tea, I never said I was a tea snob) (yet) so that's been an exciting bit of happiness in my life. :)
That patience is something I seem to be always lacking. That it's okay to follow your dreams. That spending hours lying in the hammock, enjoying the summer sunshine is NOT a waste of time. That getting up early is worth it.
And that God is so full of mercy for this impatient, ungrateful girl it's staggering.
Til next time I drop in. *hugs y'll*
Tell me! What's going on in your life?? :)
