Summer Fun

Oh friends, I’ve been having a fun summer but it’s also been busy and unfortunately I just haven’t put blogging at the top of my list. I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful time and I apologize for not keeping up. I got a bit overwhelmed when I saw my feedly activity. So please do let me know if I’ve missed something important.

Anyway, I’m back sort of. We had a wonderful three week vacation in Germany as we spent time with family and friends, saw a new city and relaxed a lot. I thought I’d be all set for my return but I came back to family visits, friend visits and lots of work. So needless to say, I feel like I’ve been running around a lot this month trying to catch up.

The next few months I have a couple of trips planned and then I’m also trying to get my shop ready for the holidays and other craft fairs. You know where this is going right? Yep, I may not be around as much still. We’ll see, maybe I’ll finally learn the art of time management. Ha. Again, thank you for hanging in there with me.

So, I did read quite a few books while on vacation and bought books too of course so I’ll do a post on that but in the meantime, here are a couple of pictures from our adventures:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe spent a weekend in the Harz Mountains. I’ve been to the Harz several times and I just love this magical place. We boarded a steam train to take us to the highest peak. So much fun. Between that and the scenery I thought I had stepped into a Grimm Fairy Tale.

I was hoping to escape the Texas heat but it was actually pretty hot in Germany too. Oh well, thank goodness for the gelato and eiscafes!

Alright guys, I hope you have a wonderful weekend and will be back with more book talk!
