Hi, I'm here, I'm here! Better late than never right? These are the results of being on vacation. The weather in Indiana has been SO NICE...I woke up this morning (with my windows open) to 48 degrees. This is mind-blowing to a Floridian. I am not going to want to hop on a plane and return to the soupy muck and reality on Tuesday. Blah.
Throughout the week, we have been diligently working on projects for decorating for my mom and dad's 50th wedding anniversary party, which happens tonight. I finally broke down and signed up for Pinterest, and I tentatively browsed around and found some cool ideas (I'm scared to death this website is going to suck out my soul and all my free time!). The kids and I did take a day and visit my old haunt, Indiana Beach, which is kind of a throw-back to amusements parks in the olden days...wooden coasters, coney dogs, and fair-type rides. And as the week progressed, my sister drove down from Minneapolis and my husband arrived for the festivities.
This week I started posting pictures from Poland, and I'll keep doing that for a few weeks until I've at least shared the highlights. I got a lot of comments on my Zurek soup picture, so in a couple weeks I will post a recipe to make it (even though I haven't actually done it myself). I do intend to try it as soon as I get home and get my life in order.
My reading has about gone into hibernation. The only time I listen to audios is when I'm putting on my makeup. (I've been running, but I'm always running with someone, so no listening time there.) I did finally finish Lauren Oliver's "Requiem" in print, and thanks to the forever-life-saving Jill, who sent me a express package to my parent's house, I am now reading "Night Film" by Marisha Pessl. Funny side story: When my sister showed up Thursday, she was ALSO reading "Night Film". This is so ironic since the book isn't even out yet! Great minds and all that.
Even though I haven't been on the blogs all that much lately, it does seem like it is so slow out there. Everyone must be taking breaks and having their vacations. I do look forward to getting back into a routine, but if I were going to be brutally honest with you, I dread this back-to-school time of year. Dread like the plague. I just want to go to sleep and wake up about November. Go ahead and tell me that I only have five more of these years, so I'd better appreciate it, but I will only ignore you.
Hope you all are having a great Sunday. I look forward to catching up with you soon!
