day sixteen // Monday // 828On Monday, I went to town to run errands, had a visit from an out-of-town family friend, and finished up a cat-sitting job from the previous week. Oh, and I posted a poll on Instagram to found out how many people sucker their tomato plants (do you??) and the sucker-snappers lost.
day seventeen // Tuesday // 137Walmart trip, nursing home visit, went by the DMV office to renew my drivers license and ended up registering to vote, then hung out by the pool and read an entire book...definitely a good day. ;)
Oh, and I assembled a desk chair that ended up not working at my desk... *taps chin*
“Prospective?” I sputter. “I’m the only aunt!”
“Well, I guess Brock’s sister-in-law is technically the baby’s aunt too.”
I roll my eyes. “She’s only related by marriage. Besides, she lives in like Antarctica.”
“Canada, Char. They live in British Columbia. Something to do with Brock’s brother’s job.”
day eighteen // Wednesday // 1,179 + 1,908Wednesday was my sweet mom's birthday! <3 We didn't do much that day, but I did get quite a bit of writing and editing done. :D
"People say that you can’t fall in love that young, that you don’t know what you’re talking about, that it’ll never last. But they aren’t always right, Gracie. Sometimes, if it’s His will and if they’re being faithful, God lets two people fall in love young, so they have their whole lives stretched out ahead of them, instead of spending those years finding Him and each other. Not always, mind you, but sometimes."
day nineteen // Thursday // 700 + 138I got a new bookshelf on Thursday! This cubic shelf used to be in our living room, in several different arrangements, and behind the couch most recently. Mom mentioned that she wanted to move it out since she won't need nearly as much space for textbooks this fall and asked if I wanted it. Um, yes please! xD
Since taking this picture, I've gotten a lamp for the top and added some more books to the empty cubes. It looks so nice!
day twenty // Friday // 0I went shopping with my mom on Friday in celebration of her just-passed birthday and my upcoming birthday. We drank Starbucks, ate Chick-Fil-A, found some clothing bargains, each bought new Chacos, and I snagged a book and a season of an enjoyed TV show from Barnes & Noble. <3
day twenty-one // Saturday // 2,257Saturday was a nice relaxing day, which I spent mostly reading. I also made cookies for a meal at our church on Sunday, tried a salted cold foam cold brew (RECOMMENDED, Y'ALL), wrote lots of fabulous words, watched Signed, Sealed, Delivered, and danced around the house singing country music at the top of my lungs. (Don't you wish you lived on our road??)
|stars on my shirt, stars in my eyes|
day twenty-two // Sunday // 715
Sunday was homecoming at our church, so after the special service and following meal, we came home and had a restful afternoon/evening. I reorganized my books by color...and hated it so much that I immediately pulled them all back off and re-did it by author. Apparently I'm slightly OCD when it comes to books.
Camp goal: 75,000 words
Current word count: 18,715
Status: One week left and I'm not even halfway there... O.o
How is Camp going for y'all?? :D I know I keep saying this, but I really am going to get back active in blogging...maybe next week. Or next month. Ya know. *wink*
