August Wrap Up 2018

Summer has come to an end and while I will miss the glorious sunshine, I am ready to embrace autumn. In my head, I imagined August to be a calm month, but that didn’t happen at all. Nothing all that extraordinary happened in August because all I did was work. Therefore, I still didn’t finish my book and so, once again my monthly tally of books I’ve read remains to be zero. In relation to the blog, I did succeed in posting a couple of discussion posts and finally added a drop-down menu for my blog features. On that front, I’d say I was productive. Unfortunately, my blog-hopping game is seriously lacking again, and I apologise for that. If you do have a post that you’re proud of feel free to share it. Anyway, here is my monthly summary August.

September Goals

Relax. Seriously, I am in need of a long weekend to just do nothing. In reality, I know that is not likely to happen any time soon, but the idea sounds nice.

On the bright side, I am slowly getting back into reading. Now, I’m not going to make any promises, but I think September might just be the month I finish a book. This calls for a celebration.

I’ve also been tinkering with my bullet journal designs and while I was at it, started thinking about possible birthday/Christmas gifts to buy for my family members. I know, it’s way too early to be thinking about that, but in the context of the fact that both my brothers celebrate their birthdays in December, I need to start thinking and budgeting as soon as possible. 

What was your highlight of the month?
Do you have any plans for September?

  1. I hope that you’ll have some time to relax this month Lois, I’m sending you positive vibes and courage, all work and no fun is really annoying. I hope you’ll get to read a bit more just as well, or at least that you’ll get to one great book 😀 ❤
    Thank you so much for sharing my post! ❤ Have a wonderful September!
