What I did learn over my week-long wooded sojourn is that summers are bookish no matter where you are. After all, it is what you make them to be anyways, right?
So while I did miss my posts as part of the daily challenge for the past couple of days, I am not attempting to play catch up this time around. I will skip past them with the adrenaline coursing through me from the walking in the woods.
So here is what I did last week as well as the posts I did publish. I hiked – a lot – and did other Scout camp things as well. Totally enjoyed myself doing all of them too – a bit of rifle shooting, some archery practice, and star-gazing. It was a first time try for me at both archery and rifle shooting, and suffice to say, I will definitely be trying them again when I can!
Star-gazing out in the wilderness away from the lights of civilization is vastly different and way more of a sublime experience. As we listened to the call of bull-frogs, we gazed on the vastness of the Milky Way, on the ever-lovely moon; and came away more aware of our tiny imprint on the universe, and came away feeling rejuvenated.
Moving on to my posts, here are last week’s posts:
- Sunday Scribblings #12: Summering Bookishly
- Hiking and Treasure Hunts
- Top 10 Fictional Bookworms
- Clerihew for Who
- Throwback Thursday in My Bookish Summer
And yes, Summers are Bookish! I did do a bit of reading amidst those over 45 miles of hiking (I know, I can’t believe it myself), and other activities… So what did I read? A bit of Perry Mason after a couple of decades and some more of ‘Why We Write’ and ‘Educated’ as well as a couple more
Coming Up Next
A couple of book reviews of books I read over the last week, more bookish lists and some bookish tips and treats…
A Little Bit of Randomness
Here are some upcoming National and World Days for this week that appealed to me the most:
- National Give Something Away Day on July 15th
- World Emoji Day on July 17th
- National Moon Day on July 20th (and it is the 50th anniversary celebration of the day when man first walked on the moon)
Wrapping Up My Sunday Scribblings
