First, I'm working my way through book three of the Two Blue Doors series, Together at the Table. Not unlike it's predecessors, it's wiggly and squirmy and has thoughts. Yes, I do realize I described Shiloh as a puppy (really, Shiloh now).
Don't get me wrong - I think you guys will love it. But every time I try tackling it from a new spot, it slips around and insists on a different angle, a new approach. But it's getting there! And it's so swoony. I can't say that enough.
The closer I get to a deadline, the more I go looking for new music to enjoy while I work. Lately, I'm enjoying Vance Joy, Kodaline, and Melody Gardot.
We've had a few opportunities to get outside and enjoy the weather - this coastal hike in particular - but mostly it's been a working summer.
Secondly, I got to fly down to California to chat with the ladies at Walnut Creek Presbyterian. So much fun! I made Tarissa's Peach Cornbread and the Double Chocolate Chip Cookies (for sixty, mind you), and they were so good!
|Triple batch of cookie dough! Amazed that all but|
the chips fit into the KitchenAid.
It's exhausting - but also often funny. We've seen homes with ghastly color palettes (forest green carpet, metallic tangerine walls, purple walls, aqua walls - yes, that was all the same house. Same room, actually.), bathrooms with the toilet separated by swinging saloon doors, and a home with a freestanding, plug-in sauna in one of the guest rooms.
But there's time.
The month of August holds more adventures - and a few surprises. Stay tuned!
What about you? What's kept you moving this summer?
