Hi! I’m on family vacation in Oregon and having a delightful time. So far, I went to the beach, met some blogging friends in Portland, bought some books, and drove to the top of a mountain while the non-pregnant family members hiked. M was dragging by the end of the hike, but he made it up, and he got to ride in the car on the way down. He looks pretty proud of himself at the summit up there in the picture.
Next week, school starts and I will have more opportunity to read and keep up on my blogging. Last month I got behind on both because I was finally recovered from pneumonia and spent a lot of time cleaning and watching the kids.
Exercise this week:
I walked about 3 miles on Tuesday, did a lot of standing and strolling on a beach on Wednesday, and did a lot of standing and strolling at a mountain summit on Saturday. This doesn’t sound like much…but it’s a huge step up from nothing. Now that the kids will be in school, I hope to add a walk to most days. 😁
The Hate U Give is for a bookclub meeting in October. I still need to finish some heavier books that I decided not to bring on the trip. Gulliver’s Travels is my current Well Educated Mind project book.
These are audiobooks that we have listened to on our intra-Oregon drives.
The bottom three are mine, top four are Aaron’s.

It looks like a great vacation! Hopefully you will have a bit more time once the kids get back to their routine.
I read Gulliver’s Travels for the first time about a year ago. I was surprised by how much I liked it.
I hope that the rest of your vacation is great!
I’m enjoying it so far. Though I keep wondering why he doesn’t just stop traveling if he has so many problems. 🙂
I have recently bought The Hate U Give too, but haven’t started it yet. I guess I’m going to read it soon 🙂
Wow, American Gods is HUGE. I read it on the Kindle, you never know how big it is when it’s like that 😀
I hadn’t realized American Gods was so huge either. It’s quite the tome.
I’m really enjoying The Hate U Give. It’s a must-read if you are interested in books on social issues.
Glad to hear you are recovering. Sounds like you had fun on Vacation to Oregon. We started school again in the middle of August. Had no idea American Gods was a tome! Take time for yourself and enjoy your books! ❤️❤️
I’m glad we didn’t start school in August, or else our yearly Labor Day vacation would have been cut short! I’ve often wondered why so many schools start before Labor Day these days. It seems like it takes away a perfect vacation time.
The Hate U Give is on my list. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.
It’s a must-read!
