August 2016 Wrap Up


I read six out of the nine books I had planned on reading this month. With that being said, my Reading List is now updated with August’s books.


Well. I started off strong editing George Florence and then got stuck. Apparently I said I was also going to edit The Lost Girl all month. I forgot about that, but I just started finishing that up a few days ago. So there’s that.


By the end of the month, I got kind of behind on my posts. But I’ll catch up, that’s no problem. I started planning ideas for next year rather than focus on the rest of August and upcoming September. Oh, well.


It was a fairly productive month. I think I should have gotten more done than what I actually accomplished. But I did have work the first week of August, I went away for a weekend with my family, and I hung out with my cousins and friends here and there. So I think I had a good month overall.

      1. They are flying by for me! Wednesday will be the third class meeting (a three hour class) for me. I am enlisting my adopted grandson (former student in 2006) to drive me to the university and allowing him to teach the “song and dance” on plagiarism. That will give me a break in the three hours for about 15 to 20 minutes. However, I will have to sit and listen, so I can critique his “guest appearance” in the car on the way home!

Let me know what you think!
