I’ve read 9 books this month. Not my best month but I’ve been playing outside every chance I can get so it’s ALL good! I do intend to do MORE reading OUTSIDE from here on out because that’s a special pleasure that comes and goes through a short time frame 🙂
My favourit book this month was:
The Last Hours by Minette Walters
A descriptive, interesting, engaging tale about life during the Black Death. I found it a little long about 3/4 of the way through but then when it ended I was left craving more! Good thing there’s a second one!
I also enjoyed these two:
Aprons and Silver Spoons by Mollie Moran was fast paced and fun to read. Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen by Sarah Bird really got me thinking good.
That;s easy. It’s also the only movie I watched this month, ha.
Always Be My Maybe !It was smart and funny and sweet without being saccharine. It held my attention the whole way through and left me feeling happy. You can find it on Netflix, I believe. Go watch!
Kindest human interaction:
It’s a toss up between the lady who asked me ” Are you OK? Do you need a ride? ” when OV and I were playing in the pouring rain OR when Hubs gently rubbed cream on my roasted sunburnt back, without me asking…
Coolest thing I got in the mail:
My first box of Universal Yums! A monthly subscription box of snacks from around the world. This month the country was Colombia. Colombia? I am enjoying your snacks! You make the BEST queso tortilla chips! And I love your coconut toffee.
Best Lune moments:
I bought myself 30 small and medium gifts as tangible reminders to celebrate everything but the best and most valuable things were moments engaging with loved ones. Even in sadness.
1. Learning about the new developments in my friend’s health, the sorrow and the conversation and the love and wisdom that followed. 2. Having my entire family over for dinner! All the kids, blood and otherwise, all the spouses, former and current. 3. Seeing my mum in law and enjoying her feierce love for me. 4. Spending the week with my Hubs doing nothing much but having fun nonetheless. 5. Chatting with my daughter every day. She calls me and says ” What’s more annoying? Me as a kid or me as an adult? as way of apology but you know, I am grateful and appreciate that she WANTS to talk to me. I’ll take her daily phone calls, joyfully. ( The answer is always ” You as a kid!” ha ha. She was a tornado, that one! )
I’m happy for July because I’m hoping the weather sort of evens out a bit…but I’m enjoying the ever changing nature of the way things are now. We get rain every day and we get sun every day so if you plan it right you can enjoy it all and life never gets boring! The days are flying past so I’m making a few intentions to keep my butt on track:
- Read my books outside when it’s not raining.
- Get my ass on my bike!
- Eat my meals outside when I can…
- Check out a new part of the city every week.
What are your best June memories? What are your intentions for July?
