August 2018 Recap

Newsletters

With August, the work year returns to normal for those of us with connections to schools and the academia. As usual, there was a flurry of activity.

Printing More Thank You Cards

To top it off, Husband and I did some home improvement projects, so my sewing time was extremely limited. I did manage to sew some headbands for myself and as gifts.

First Try Headbands

I used Cat’s tutorial as a starting point, and made a few alterations. Luckily I had large enough Marimekko unikko (poppy) fabric pieces to kill two birds with one stone: reduce my remnants pile and make gifts. Two of them are scarf-style which I figured out myself, only to discover patterns online. Ohwell. 🙂

In addition, the newest World of Warcraft expansion, Battle for Azeroth, was released. I took my druid out first.

WoW BfA Heart of Azeroth Aug 2018

Juggling everything on my schedue AND adding new gaming content, even if I couldn’t play as much as I would’ve wanted to, meant I barely had time or the brain power to read. (Apparently I tend to put all of my media consumption, regardless of the shape the media comes in, into the same time slot. Hm. I’ll have to consider changing the tendency.)

Provenance by Ann Leckie turned out the most enjoyable: family, inheritance, culture and politics with a little action sprinkled in. I’m so looking forward to September; things should calm down and I hope to get more time to read again.

Did you read or watch anything worth recommending?
