The Summer Update

It's been awhile, I know. Sorry, I was just out doing stuff and so I didn't feel the pressing urge to write about it. Plus, I sort of got out of the habit of writing anything this summer, whether it be blog posts, or journal entries, or lonely books...

Anyway. I'm back now, and that's all that matters. Somewhat. 

So, what have I been up to since Discovery Days?

For one, the fair was a huge timesucker. I must have prepared up to a month in advance for the fair, mostly training my horses and goats, and tending my garden. I did realllyyy well this year--for one, I got second place in the fair queen pageant! I meant to blog about it, as fair queen-type stuff is a nice size of this blog. But, alas, I was off doing summery things, like visiting my boyfriend and the like. 

Also, I was a counselor at several camps this year, including one called Lakeside. My friend/avid blog reader was also there, and I had the funnest time being a counselor ever. I know it's all about the kids, but sometimes they don't rely on you and you have a bit of downtime. It's good to have awesome people to talk to about books, fanfic (Dramione forever), and other nerdy stuff durng the dry parts.

Recently my family has been selling baked goods in an effort to raise enough money so Hope, Mom and I can go to Chicago to see Hope's boyfriend, Rhett. He recently joined the Navy and will be graduating from boot camp soon. How exciting! I can't wait to see him again... it's been nearly two months since we last said goodbye.

 This was a cheesecake Hope and I made. I'm sure it tasted delicious, although I can't say.

 We'll be selling other baked goods too, so I'll have to keep you guys posted. 

School is starting up again soon, which means that I will be getting the house to myself again. I really do enjoy having a quiet house in the afternoons before my siblings get home. It's peaceful, and the cats also come out more, because they don't have to worry about getting harassed by little hands. 

I'll be a sophomore this year, and I'm sure it'll be a tough school year. I'm ready to get started next week. 

So, how have you guys been? Missed me much?
