Weekly Wrap Up (22)

Welcome to the Weekly Wrap-up with Bookmunchies. This is our weekly update that combines Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s SUNDAY POST and Tynga’s Reviews‘ STACKING THE SHELVES. This is a post to share news, to recap the week on the blog, share new reads and new books, and upcoming fun for the week ahead!

Hey guys, Jackie here,

It seems that I keep forgetting we have August these days. I don’t know why my brain just automatically jumps to September even though we have one more month of summer to go. I want to do something epic in August, but I don’t know what yet. This week at work was pretty quiet for a change but I guess because the summer reading program is winding down. However, the kids that come in for story time have been strangely hyperactive this week. Maybe they’re excited about school starting…? Anyways, I was almost done knitting my mom’s birthday present earlier this week, but because of my impatient to finish knitting the shawl (whoever said you needed patience to knit I totally disagree. I have no patience at all especially when I’m almost done with a project.) I totally fudged up a stitch and it couldn’t be saved (I had 300+ stitches and it made me weep a little…all that work). So I had to restart. But, weirdly enough I don’t really get frustrated (maybe a little) when I have to restart a project all over unlike with some things.

Nothing new this week. I’ve been trying to be good about not getting new books and go through what I have before picking up any new ones.

  1. Don’t skip over August!!! I need more summer still 🙂 I have to get back to knitting. I was going good for a while and then I dropped off with it. Have a great week!

    1. Nooo! Get back to knitting so we can knit all things together.

  2. I think a lot of students start to get antsy around August. Being off for June and July is kind of long for them to go without the structure and organization of school routines.
    Good luck with the knitting. I am always in awe of people who can do that.

  3. I wish we could fast forward through August and my classroom and materials would all be magically ready for September 1. HA! I’m not going to lie, I love and I hate August. It is SO stressful. The kids probably are excited to go back to school. I couldn’t knit. I would get too frustrated.

    1. Getting materials ready sounds stressful and fun at the same time. When you said “magically ready” I had this image of all the books and supplies poof-ing onto the desks in the classroom.

  4. My kids aren’t that excited about school this year, which is kinda unusual for them. I know once they get there that will change. Hope you have a wonderful week. 🙂

    1. I’m sure once they see their friends their attitudes will change.

  5. With my daughter in graduate school already and me no longer teaching, summer has almost no meaning, other than it’s hot here. I hope you find something epic to do next month and I can live vicariously through you.

  6. August is a much-needed stepping-stone month, before the excitement and craziness that is September! September is usually a whirlwind for me… although this will be the first September that I won’t be in school. O_O I’m not used to not being in school anymore! It’ll hit me for real in September, when I’m not in class and still working lolololol.

    Hey, no new books is great! I need a minimal week to try and catch up. I got way behind during finals and graduation season. Maybe I just need a do-over at this point!

    Have a lovely week, Jackie! =)

    1. I’ve never taken a summer class when I was in college so it wasn’t too weird not being in school after graduating, but when fall came it did feel kind of weird seeing all the school supplies and students on the bus with backpacks.

      Congrats on graduating! I’m sure you’ll get a lot of time to catch up on reading now that you’re only working.

  7. We start school here next week and so all the kids are a bit jumpy. I’m looking forward to a more ordered routine! Great job on the no new books. That’s so hard to do! I love the idea of learning to knit and it’s good to know I don’t have to be super patient to learn how because patience is not my virtue!

    1. Wow! That’s so soon. I hope you and the kids are ready for the new school year.

  8. I still can’t believe how fast time has flown by with the summer and I haven’t had a chance to do anything fun yet. But I still have one more month, and I am going to take advantage of it.

  9. I am glad to hear that you had a quieter week at work. It is amazing that summer is going as fast as it is…but we do still have August 🙂 My daughter goes back to school next week so it does kind of feel like summer is over. I am sure your mom is going to love her shawl. Have a great week!

  10. I don’t knit, but I do crochet. I get impatient when I get towards the end of finishing up a project. Sometimes starting over on a new project is relaxing, other times it’s definitely a pain in the butt! LOL

    I think a lot of kids are just restless and that’s where their hyperactivity comes from. My kids are definitely not thrilled that summer break is coming to a close. LOL.
