Monthly Wrap-up: June 2015

Month in review is a monthly meme which was created by Kathryn at Book Date.


Summer is here folks! My least favourite season because it means humidity and that means my elephant friend (I call him Peanut) returns to his favourite place to sit: my chest. Blah. Those days suck. Am I ever thankful for AC. Hopefully it won’t be a sweltering muggy summer. Fingers crossed.
What did I get up to in June? For some reason whenever I sit down to write my monthly wrap-ups I draw a complete blank on the past few weeks.. Does this happen to anyone else? As I mentioned in a previous post, I was laid up with back pain for a few weeks, so that kept me from going out much. Thankfully it has been feeling much better. 

On Friday night I went to see the country music group Montgomery Gentry in concert. What a fun show they put off! 

And for the last (but certainly not least) of my personal updates: On June 29th I celebrated 5 years healthy after years of heart problems. So many wonderful things have happened in my life since then and I am so thankful for all my friends and family for their support. 

Now onto the books:
