August Wrap-Up 2022

The past two months have been quite a whirlwind, although the lack of attention I’ve given my blog (and reading) has developed into a consistent trend this year overall. Who knows what October will bring? But wait, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s quickly look back at August.

The end of August brought the ‘vid-19 with it. For me, it showed up like the most severe flu I have ever had (and hopefully will never have again). For three days I had just enough strength to refill my water bottle and swallow some medicine; thankfully I felt less fatigued on day four, and days five and six had me feeling just slightly tired but very congested. I experienced some lingering congestion for about a week after, but as far as I know there haven’t been any long-term effects.

Despite finishing the month on a low, everything that preceded the end was great. I helped host my sister’s bachelorette weekend, and finished up preparations for her wedding. It was also a beautiful month for trips up to camp, where I got to do almost nothing on the beach with my significant other and admire how much my flowers had grown over the summer.

Books Read

None, although I did advance slightly in a couple of the books listed below…

Books I Did Not Finish

Most notable / books I spent the most time with (an exact copy of July’s books):

  • Track of the Cat by Nevada Barr
  • Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice
  • Things They Lost by Okwiri Oduor
  • Destiny’s Embrace by Beverly Jenkins


Blog Posts


There’s nothing more to say than what I did in the intro of this post – particularly because August seems so long ago at this point…

As always, I’d love to hear about what you’ve been reading (including any blog posts you’ve enjoyed), and would love to know how the transition into fall has treated you. Let’s chat in the comments.

    Oh wow! I’m sorry to hear you got so sick! 😨 but it’s nice to hear you were better after the 4th day. Though my job 100% didn’t let me come back (which- good. I understand), I would’ve been good to go work anyway.. my case of covid was pretty mild 😅 just like a cold- except that I lost my voice ahah I mainly slept aswell but that’s just because I was so bored of a week at yome not being able to do anything..

    Aww planning the bachelorette must’ve been fun too 🥰 happy that hadn’t got cancelled atleast. We had my bestfriend’s baby shower but alas.. peak of covid and pregnant is quite dangerous so we had to let that go too.

      Yeah the not being able to do anything, then the boredom when I started feeling like myself again definitely allowed me to get some extra rest. 😆 I’m glad you had a mild case – certainly wouldn’t wish anything more on anyone.

      Yeah we are lucky where we are – cases being low, people still masking while being out and about (yay) – so I’m glad everything worked out for us. Ugh that’s hard, to want to celebrate but having to alter how you typically do it – I hope your friend and the baby are doing well!!
