Apparently I want to open each month’s recap with “I can’t believe how fast this month has flown by” but even so, September really has gone fast.
For banned books week this year, I read The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas.
This month’s other reads were thought-provoking and absorbing, too.
I made a canvas hanger cover prototype. Choosing the fabric took a little doing – I initially wanted a tightly woven medium-weight cotton, but most that I got my hands on were a little transparent. A cotton duck to the rescue, then.
The placemat prototypes I started in February and finished earlier this summer are in use, being tested. (And I finally remembered to upload the photos!) Some of the details work, but others don’t, so at least as is they cannot be produced. (Yet.)
The weather in the beginning of the month was very summery still, including some extremely muggy days. Approaching the end, we got fall temps with plenty of rain – very welcome both. I was worried for the water table during the dry summer months.
Husband and I carved time for a mini-getaway to visit the White Mountains of New Hampshire. As I grew up on a flood plain (VERY flat!) I found the mountains absolutely ah-mazing!
On the gaming front, we broke in a new-to-us board game, Pandemic. It’s a collaborative game where players race against time to cure and, if possible, eradicate four diseases. It can be very unforgiving if the luck of the draw is against you, but a lot of fun!
We played WoW, too (although not quite as often as I would’ve liked), and got our first characters leveled to 120. Yay! 🙂 I’m leveling a human first for strategic reasons (gaining rep faster for allied races).
I also broke out some tastes of home: tar-flavored liquorice candy.
Now we’re enjoying seasonal weather and starting to plan the end of the year in detail. I can’t believe it’s almost October!
