Hello October

September you were a busy month filled with a lot of activity and I get the feeling the rest of the year is going to be just as busy but there were some great moments in September. Number one was going to the CREATE Mixed Media Retreat in Dallas. I got to take a class with artist Pam Carriker who was a delight. And, best of all I got to see my best friends. I love hanging out with the girls.

I also visited a wonderful indie bookstore in Dallas, The Wild Detectives. My friend Christine has been raving about it and so glad I finally got to visit it. That visit deserves a whole post on its own but for now I’ll just tell you that I picked up Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and my friend Isabel gifted me The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri.

What else? Well, I’ve been spending more time on crafting and other personal things and unfortunately my reading time has been very limited. Can you believe I am still reading a book from months ago? Yikes. I did finish one book for the R.I.P. Challenge though so that’s a good thing.

So, what do I want for this month? I want more reading time! I’m behind on all of my reading challenges so I would love to get one or two more books in for the challenges. I would also like to finish some of my books in progress.

There are lots of great things to look forward to this month for example the Texas Book Festival. Joyce Carol Oates is one of the many authors who’ll be making an appearance. I really want to hear her. I’m also planning a trip to Monterrey and I can’t wait to see my family. It’s been a long time since I’ve had the chance to visit.

Anyway, that’s what’s going on with me. How about you? What are your plans for October?
