I’m calling this week’s WUW the Cottage Getaway version. My weekend away was, well, amazing. Refreshing. Relaxing. Fun. Fabulous. I could go on for awhile! 🙂
What I’m Reading: I finished these three books over the weekend. If you’re a Gilmore Girls fan, don’t waste your time. I had high hopes, but the essays were riddled with errors and gross assumptions.
I’m now reading The Founding Gardeners by Andrea Wulf. I saw this on my last HPB trip and was pleased to find out my library has a copy. We’ve started backyard gardening this year, and that combined with participating in the Presidential Challenge, this is perfect for me.
What I’m Writing:
I decided not to take my laptop with me to the cottage. It was last minute, buying felt I needed a break – no kids, no chores, no “work” including writing. I’m so glad I left writing at home. I feel fully refreshed. And, we spent so much time doing these things, that I wouldn’t have had much writing time anyway.
What Else I’ve Been Up To: Here’s a quick glimpse of my weekend away.
Playing Settlers of Catan
Visiting Andrew Jackson’s home, The Hermitage.
These amazing Harry Potter cookies Jacki and her husband made.
What Inspires Me Right Now:
The views from the cottage.
Also, sweet and helpful words from a CP. Her words have sent my brain into creative thought mode!
