Wow, that went quick!

Well, this is it. The last week of Summer. That sure went by quickly. I didn't accomplish as much as I would have liked but I did have some fun. I went to visit my mom and dad in Tehachapi. We caught up over quilting and knitting. My mom has become quite adept at quilting and is working on a beautiful quilt for her first great grandchild that she's expecting to come someday, but not soon. I worked on this Doctor Who illusion panel for Nerd Wars:When you look straight down on it, it just looks like blue and white stripes, like this:Pretty cool, eh?

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.

And now school is about to start and here is what I did accomplish this summer:

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!
