What I am Into – August 2018

“I love borders. August is the border between summer and autumn; it is the most beautiful month I know.”

— Tove Jansson 

What I Am Loving:

  • Best Subscription Boxes For Women – I am so excited to try some of these subscription boxes. I am part of a face book group and the women encouraged me to try it because they say that certain ones are worth the price.

 

Post’s I Adored:

 

READ:

Unremarried Widow by Henderson (5/5) – This was a great book about the death of her husband, how it mirrored her own father’s death, and the grieving process. The ending felt unfinished but otherwise great story.

I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness (4/5) – What wonderful insights on racial inequality and somethings we can do about it.

 Real Sex: The Naked Truth about Chastity by Lauren Winner (2/5) – I love most of Lauren Winner’s books but this one did not impress me at all. The only thing I really got out of this book is the difference between celibacy and chastity.

Liturgy of the Ordinary: Sacred Practices in Everyday Life by Tish Warren (1/5) – I was less than impressed by this book. It was suppose to show how we can commune with God even doing the most tedious task. I didn’t learn anything.

 

 

Made Me Laugh:

 

Music:

  • Sunrise, Sunburn, Sunset – by Luke Bryan – I am not really a fan of a lot of modern day country music. However, I loved this song and video by Luke Bryan. It reminds me of sunny days here in Florida. I live in Florida and we spend a lot of our weekends boating and jet sking.

 

 

Movies:

  1. I Feel Pretty (4/5) – This movie is about a girl who feels fat and ugly. One day she hits her head at the gym and then all of a sudden feels pretty and confident. She thinks she looks difference but by the end of the movie she realized her looks didn’t change at all. That is when she totally accepts herself as she is.
  2.  Kissed by God (4/5)- This is a documentary about a famous surfer who had bipolar          disorder. He ended up overdosing accidentally and had a heart attack and died.

TRAVEL:

  • I went to Tampa, Florida this month. We went an explored down town ybor ( forgot to take a single picture).  I also was obsessed with with beautiful pool on the 3rd floor of the hotel. It was was made of salt water which is way better for your eyes to see in unlike chlorine water which hurts.

Highlights:

  1. Have wanted to try one of the boxes. There are some really good ones out there. Just don’t have the extra funds right now. You seem to have stayed busy this summer. And your picture is beautiful.

  2. I’ve not thought of August being a border, but what a beautiful perspective! It truly is a border between summer and fall.

    I read I’m Still Here a few months ago and really appreciated hearing her perspective! We have so much we can learn from each other if we’ll just take the time to really listen.

    Blown Off sounds like a very intriguing podcast. I listen to so many already; I don’t need to add any more. ha. But if I were going to, this one might be worth it.
