Where did my summer go?

Quick update! It was summer and I did things! Most of them were fun! Summer is fleeting! So is this post!

Okay, maybe not so fleeting for the post. I guess I'll highlight the new experience: I got to see (the northeast corner of) Ohio for the first time. It was so pretty. Apparently summer is far more fleeting there than it is here, when we're talking about the season itself and not the break from work that students and teachers have.

So yeah... full summer (briefly) in Ohio, high temperatures well below what they are here, wildflowers in bloom everywhere. It was gorgeous. And I went swimming in Lake Erie and lived to tell the tale! It actually wasn't as cold as I expected. (This does NOT mean it was warm. Just... not super-cold.)

Also spent some time in DC and Oklahoma again. And goofing off in my own home. It was lovely.

No real news to report for media consumption. Last night I finished rereading the Rivers of London books, the five in print as of now. I wanted to see if there were hints about [spoilery thing that happened at the end of book three], among other things. And I enjoyed them about as much as I did the first time around, so yay.
