The List: July Update!

August is almost over and I'm just now posting my July update for the list... haha.  Whoops.  Anyway, in July I read One Hundred Years of Solitude and What is the What and I re-read Crooked and Better Than Running at Night.  What is the What was amazing, definitely my favourite out of the four.  Have you read any of these books? Or do you have any suggestions for books I should check out?!  So far I'm doing pretty well for my goal of reading 52 books this year.  (As of right now I'm at 33 books.)

Keith, De & I also went blueberry picking in July!  & I made some delicious blueberry scones/biscuits. Yum.  Unfortunately we missed raspberry picking this year and the cherry season was pretty bad because of the warm weather we had in March.  But there's always next year!
Oh & we slept outside!   I'm going to see if Keith will sleep outside with me again before the summer is over, haha.  I love it!  Although waking up super early (& HOT) with the sun isn't the greatest.  But it's fun to fall asleep outside, and Squirt loves it.

I don't think I crossed any movies or shows off my list - I did start to watch Dexter though.  I tried a few years ago and I just couldn't get into it, but I'm now on season 3 & I think it's growing on me, ha.  

Did you make any goals for July?  Or any for August, since we're almost done August, ha.
