For Saturday’s Snapshot post, check in with Melinda, at West Metro Mommy Reads.
For most of July, I have been hosting my eldest son and his wife, newly arrived from Berlin. They stayed all month, and now are up north visiting other family members. They will return in early September and stay most of the month….and when they fly out, this time they will be headed to Prague, where they met several years ago.
Before they arrived in my Central Valley city, they spent July 4th weekend in LA, and here are some of their photos. My second son lives in an apartment in Hollywood, called The Broadway. Great for rooftop shots, like this one of Gabi on the roof:
Here is my son Craig on the rooftop…the building sign is reversed. They spent a lot of time in this rooftop pool.
Here is the sign, lit up:
When they arrived here, in our less than celestial city, we visited the mountains, enjoyed a lake, and ate lots of good food at my daughter’s house. We had one lunch here, below, in an Old Town hotel.
On our last night together, Craig made spinach enchiladas, and we watched back-to-back movies.
While they were here, my office, temporarily, was this one in the dining room:
At least I was close to the coffee pot!
Now I am back in my normal office, left, minus the bulky bookcase that once jutted out into the room(right)…it is now in the garage.
Here is the abandoned bookcase, full of books to donate:
July was a relatively non-bookish month. I only read and reviewed TEN books…a very low number for me. But I had a lot of fun.
Now I am moving back and forth between books on my Kindle: first I chose Some Luck, by Jane Smiley, but stalled after just 26 pages!
So now I am reading Lost Lake, by Sarah Addison Allen, a book that has been on my Kindle for quite a while.
So that was my month. What did your month/week look like?
