Eek! It is August! The past couple mornings have had a definite "chill" in the air and have been much cooler, which makes me all the more excited for fall and the cooler weather to come that will stay. :) It is hard to believe that summer break is already gone, but I was working this summer, so it feels a little different than summers past. Rory and I had a few little things we wanted to do, see, and explore around Athens while the college students were gone, but time got away from us! We didn't spend as much time downtown as we said we would, but that's ok. Downtown Athens will always be there! And maybe, just maybe, this fall we will take advantage of some of the breaks that the students have and enjoy some time in our beloved Classic City. Here's what's going on these days:
snacking (on): Popcorn. Always popcorn. I bought Rory a Whirly Pop for Christmas, and we use it at least three times a week. We finally ordered some popcorn in bulk from Amazon, because it is always a very sad day when we run out at our house!
anticipating: The cooler weather! I was staring longly at my sweaters and jackets in my closet the other day, haha.
borrowing: Well, with all of this home reno stuff we have done through the summer, we were borrowing a sander and ladder from our friends, but we've since returned it.
admiring: I have been admiring some the grace with which so many of my faraway mentors carry themselves. It has been a privilege to be on the launch team for Ruth Chou Simons' new book, Gracelaced, and the more I get to "know" her, the more I respect her. She's the real deal, folks. Be sure to check out all the wonderful pre-order goodies and order it before it comes out on September 1!
purchasing: A couple weeks ago, a local consignment store got a big Lularoe haul. I'd been avoiding all the Lularoe parties online but was interested in purchasing some, and I got three pairs of their amazingly wonderfully comfy leggings for TEN BUCKS EACH. Talk about a steal. Thank you Jesus for consignment stores.
What are you up to these days?
Linking up with Anne and Shea today!
