You know you’re behind in blogging when your dad posts the following little ditty on your last post:
Taking a break from posting?
I miss you and it.
Tired of hosting?
I’m in a fit.
So, here goes nothing. We’ve just been busy and life has been really good. The Festival has finished up and I had a great time at the events I attended. The International Book Festival is by far my favorite. We did attend the Tattoo for the first time! It was great – very entertaining. Here’s some pics from the performance:
Just so you know, this went on for about 10 minutes…
After that very Scottish event we literally ran to the Book Festival to hear a very American writer, Anthony Bourdain. We literally made it as the doors were closing, which was lucky because there is a strictly enforced “no late-comers” policy. Due to our tardiness we were able to sit in the front row and enjoyed a fun Q&A session with the brash Bourdain. It was a great way to wrap up the Festival season and we’ve spent the following weeks getting back into the swing of regular life. Scotty’s been working away and I’ve been keeping myself busy with several jobs and projects.
Things at New College are starting back up and that’s always fun. It’s fun to meet all the new students and feel the change in the air. It makes me want to go out and buy a “back-to-school” wardrobe and stock up on stationery and notebooks. Isn’t there just something about this time of year that is so great? While I bemoan the quickly cooling weather and shortening days, I do love Autumn. We’re also gearing up for several weeks of having guests, which is always fun.
