It's been a week since my last confession and I confess I'm behind in my confessing. My August has been busier than normal, but I've been saying that a lot "busier than normal," which to me means I've been saying "Yes" too much.
I confess that today is my daughter's birthday and one thing I love about her is that she wanted a quiz on world countries at her party. Did you know the capitol of Belarus is Minsk? I didn't. She did.
I've learned a lot preparing this quiz such as there's a polar bear on Greenland's Coat of Arms and that 4 Great Inventions of China are: the compass, papermaking, printing, and gunpowder.
I confess I love that the girls she hangs around with are also interested in these things. And I love these girls are more interested in reading than fashion and celebrities.
I confess my cats keep drinking out of my Betta fish's tank and it concerns me. It doesn't seem to concern the fish though.
I confess I love how much people read in the Northwest and that the shoe of choice is Tevas, Crocs, or some other fashion-not.
I confess I'm thinking about my third manuscript and this makes me happy.
I confess I hope to get back to blogging more frequently and with more interesting subject matter in September. I'm just kind of in my own sunshiney world these days.
