Back from the depths of a blogging lull
What a busy summer this has been. I’ve enjoyed focusing on life in the real world, but I’ve missed the virtual community.
I may not have posted updates this summer, but I have still been working on various projects. So, I have a lot of sewing and reconstruction projects to share, along with some recipes, hairstyles, and other fun stuff.
While I would love to write a couple of lengthy recap posts of my summer, I’ll just give a (relatively) quick explanation of my absence.
If you’re interested, here’s a recap of the summer with pictures.
We also finished painting the office, and there will soon be a BC logo on the wall (pictures later). Laura found a desk that is perfect for the space at the local Habitat Restore. I’m in the process of looking for the rest of the furniture and decor.
On the 4th of July, we went out on my in-laws’ boat to watch fireworks on the water at Solomon’s Island. I made a patriotic outfit for the outing, which I will discuss in more detail in a separate post.
In July, I found out that I had Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever for the better part of a year. I hadn’t been feeling myself for many months. I finished the antibiotic, but I still have many of the same symptoms. I’m wondering if because I had it for so long without treatment, I’ll just have residual effects for a while. It’s not as though, I needed another reason to despise ticks, but now…Well, more on ticks and RMSF in a separate post too.
While they were here, Alex and I celebrated our fourth anniversary.
Alex brought me some lovely flowers.
