July Wrap-Up

Well, there goes July.  It passed too quickly – mostly because I was dreading the start of August.  Kyle will be spending the month in IN / MI, so I have to figure out how to survive on my own again.

aIMAG5294So here’s a quick rundown of the July goals:
  • Put the windows back in the bus! We got three out of four done.  The last one just will. not. fit. It either needs extra persuasion…or we need to find a new window. 
  • VW Drag Night + camping.  We went to drag night! We went camping!
  • A visit from a Minnesotan!  We had such a great time, even if the visit was short!
  • High Country Bus Festival.  We camped in the mountains of NC for a couple nights – what a beautiful location.
  • I aimed for drawing ten comic panels again. I didn’t quite make it.  July was really busy work-wise, so I didn’t have a lot of energy for side projects.  However, the panels that did get done look good – I think I’m really getting into this!

Here’s what’s on the docket for August:

  • Digitize two comic panels.
  • Pick up Kyle’s shift at the taphouse – while he’s gone, I’m going to be serving up local brews once a week.
  • Do some fun shopping.  I’ve got weddings and babies to find gifts for!
  • Take a vacation.  A whirlwind trip to Michigan this month is just what I need right now.
  • Get ready for a garage sale. We need to downsize!  
  • Technically, elderberries are ready.  I’m not sure I can tackle that project alone, but I’m still putting it on the list.

Over the 4th of July we were invited to a barbecue.  I swear it was the best barbecue I have ever tasted in my life.  The setting was gorgeous as well.

aIMG_2985On Sunday morning it started pouring rain, so we took shelter under a rock ledge along the ridge.  A rock with a view.
aaIMG_3066The area under the rock ledge was the favorite hangout, and at night the rock wall would be lined with tea lights, giving it a surreal feeling.
