The Crown and random movies on Netflix here and there.

To Savanna play the guitar, more summer thunderstorms and more Enya.

Maria Montessori's biography for my Foundations of Montessori Philosophy course. I am desperate to get to some spooky books again though... feeling those fall feels.

Getting back into that school time routine. Weeks full of hard work and weekends ready for play. A fresh start to a new school year.

The extra bill of Savanna having a phone but the time has come. There will be restrictions on it but I know she is very much excited. Another milestone of her growing up.

Poesie Perfumes Queen of Air & Darkness room and linen mist, more to come on this later.

Plantlife Sore Muscle massage oil... I wish it had helped after some serious kayaking I did a while back but nothing. The old Bengay worked more effectively.

Thinking about how fast the summer went by. Maybe not meeting some goals, but not beating myself up for it. Not gonna help.

Vacation in Savannah, celebrating my husband's 37th birthday (which was yesterday) and thinking of a new school year and new slate approaching. I am pretty happy about passing my most recent certification exam to be a teacher for K-6th grade, so I am finally "in field." That is a pretty good feeling. Lots of good memories were made this summer: kayaking on the Weeki Wachee and tubing down the Ichetucknee and swimming in Lithia Springs and in the Gulf of Mexico. 

How was your July? Did you celebrate Harry Potter turning 20? Any good news? Loving anything or disappointed in anything?


  1. The Crown gets all the stars an no one can convince me otherwise, or off with her head! Wrong monarchy, but it's excellent.

    1. I am really loving it!!! And it was a nice surprise to see Matt Smith in it. I missed him. I am now alternating The Crown with Charmed. Total opposites but I am ready for the fall tingles.
