First, I want to thank Michael for hosting this blogfest. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else did during the summer months.
I, unfortunately, did not travel to any exotic locations over the summer due to lack of funding despite the fact that I logged 2700 hours at my day job during the season (I'm asking Santa for a raise this year).
That's not to say my summer wasn't a productive one. From June 21st through September 22nd I read twenty books, wrote four short stories and five flash fiction pieces. I posted to the blog 25 times, including four blogfests and three book reviews. I also celebrated my one year blogoversary and have been doing some heavy volunteering for my daughter's softball league (Go Hurricanes!).
We spent quite a few days at the newly renovated waterpark just up the road from us.
And I did manage to plan a day trip recently to a local orchard/winery/petting zoo where I sampled the spiced apple wine and the kids got licked by goats (Ewww). So we all had a great time!
That sums up my summer “staycation”.
What was your favorite part of summer?
