My SuMmEr so far!

 I just returned from a beautiful vacation in Palm Springs.  I had to escape for some much needed vitamin D, pool time, and palm trees.  This time I spent my vacation with my mom and we had a blast. 

I managed to finish 4 books....
The Mockingjay... I found this book slow at first but then turned into a great read.  I am not sure if I agree with the ending.  It felt a little rushed in the last few chapters... but maybe that is because I was sad that I didn't have another Hunger Games book to read.

I then started the Lucky One.  This was a great romance novel by Nicholas Sparks.  It was a great transition from Mockingjay and now I am super excited to see the movie.

The Blessings of Animals was a book that I bought in Palm Springs. I sadly read the only books I brought and wouldn't last the rest of the vacation without a good read.  This book was fantastic.  It is about an animal lover that is going through a messy divorce.  The author did a great job illustrating the animals personality throughout the book.

The Rescue was my last book... I am still working on this one, but I am already hooked!

 While I was on vacation I had to keep tabs on the temperature back home.... as you can see Cochrane was very cold and rainy the whole time (I am soo happy I missed it!)

I have become addicted to taking pictures with my phone and using photo editors to adjust the quality.... here are some of the plant photos I took.

Besides applying for jobs, going to interviews, and working I have been making time to work out and enjoy the little summer I have left..

Today I went for a hike in the beautiful rocky mountains... I am already sore... so I am a little worried about how I will feel in the morning.  I think a long bubble bath is in order for tonight.
