After that, I paid a visit to my dear friends in Fullerton who had their first baby in June. Remember, I knitted a blanket for the baby back in May? The baby is healthy and happy as are her parents and I had wonderful visit with them.
Next, I flew to Portland to visit two of my highschool girlfriends and together we went to see The Go-Go's perform at the Portland Zoo. It was super fun and just like old times. One of them I see about once a year, the other I haven't seen in about 16 years but when we were all together it was like no time had passed at all. We promised each other that we wouldn't let that much time pass before our next visit.
As for reading, I've been busy with A Game of Thrones, which is long and not for children. I enjoyed very much so now I'm on to the next volume A Clash of Kings. There are 3 more books in the series so I'll finish these as fast as I can and get back to the kidlit soon! In the meantime, I have lots of terrific books to bring back to school and I have orders waiting for my return. I'll give you a sneak peak next time.
I am looking forward to getting back to school next week, partly because I'm out of money, but mostly because I miss everyone and all the books over the summer. See you all next week!
