Summer Thoughts

I've been away from this blog for a while due to being on vacation.  I guess it's time to start posting again.

Random thoughts:

I think it's interesting how both my daughter and I are now college graduates with a BA in English. That means we may find ourselves applying for the same jobs. Even though she tells me, "But, Mom, I'm just starting out and you have more experience", you never know. Employers might want to hire someone for entry level pay. We'll see what happens.

I'm still trying to exercise every day even though we've been going through heat waves here. Walking around outside some days is like walking through the desert. Must have a bottle of water with me!

Television has been totally boring over the summer so I'm reading. I finished Jeffery Deaver's Roadside Crosses and now I'm rereading The Lovely Bones. I am finding that as I've gotten older, I don't seem to retain many details from these books anymore. With some passages from The Lovely Bones it's as if I'm reading the words for the first time.

I love the commercials for Old Spice because they're funny and entertaining. Bravo to the advertisers for coming up with something I can actually watch without wanting to press mute or change the channel. I'd say with 90% of commercials, I either leave the room or do what I just described. And good for the Old Spice makers, I actually bought some of their product for my husband.

And now I'm going to go look for some shade or a cool room.


  1. Aww, sweet about you and your daughter. After you both have jobs you can swap stories and advice. :-) Welcome back!

  2. Welcome back! I haven't blogged much either. It's hard in the summer.

  3. Hi Susan!

    Yes, it's hard, but I will try to get back on track.
