Words in My Fridge
Weekending: More Than You Bargained For

Right Now - July 2016

July ... has just flown by in a flash!  (Probably because I was gone for half of it. . . )


I still feel like I'm buried deep in "catching up" mode, but there are lots of other things going on, too.  Here's what's happening . . . RIGHT NOW:

Watching:  Although I'm keeping up with various convention speeches, I'm not watching any TV in real time. I am, though, watching the weeds grow in my garden; every day more and more.  

Reading:  I just finished The Improbability of Love by Hannah Rothschild.  This one was short-listed for the Bailey's Women's Prize this year -- although I must admit to wondering why for the first 100 pages.  In the end, though, it was delightful, and I highly recommend it.  Now I'm reading The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney, the eventual winner of the Bailey's Women's Prize this year.  More Bingos are coming!

Knitting:  No changes since I shared a peek inside my knitting bag on Wednesday!

Humming:  This one . . . 


Drinking:  Lots of water.  It's been so very hot here . . . 

Itching to:  Dig out a little "extra" patch in my garden border and replant a few things.  But.  It's been so very hot here . . . 

Needing to:  Oh. My. Goodness.  If I don't catch up with all my paperwork, I'll be buried alive at my own desk.  Soon.


Delighted by:  My little garden ponds.  Moving water is a delight in the height of summer.

Looking forward to:  A week up north (next week); I need another get-away already.

Planning:  I have a Big Idea.  But it's still in its very beginning stages.  So that's all I'm going to say about that for now.

Celebrating:  Improvement and baby steps.  (At this point, I'll take what I can get.)


How about YOU?  What's happening for you . . . right now?

Don't feel bad about being behind - I still haven't processed and posted our photos from Chicago. I can't wait to hear more about your Big Idea! And yay for a week up north!


I hope your week up north offers cooler weather. We're sweltering and it's hard to even think about anything outdoors...even the garden. Big ideas! I'm dying to know! I'm also percolating on a couple of ideas of my own, although I wouldn't call them big.


I love the idea of a Big Idea! Glad you've got another week up north...so good for the soul. And your Goodreads review of The Improbability of Love has me wanting to add it to my upcoming vacation pile. Do you think Doug would mind if I just stayed in and read for a week? Okay...I'll go out on the deck! xo


It's sweltering here in Colorado-- 10 consecutive days of 90 plus temps! I watched both conventions (yes, I am a political animal). Thank you for the book recommendations--it sounds like you don't necessarily go for the fluff books during summer--it's a dynamic I never understood! Happy weekend!


fastest month ever and I was here for most of it! enjoy your week Up North and I hope it gives you some quality time to work on the Big Idea because I can't wait to hear more about that! Happy Weekend!


Oooh, I'm envious of a week up north (I could use another get-away already, too)! I hope it's cooler... have a great week!


I love how time away makes one year for more time away. A new idea!! I can't wait to hear about it!! July indeed sped by - I am just trying to savor every summer second - even the ungodly hot ones. XO
