I had the best intentions, friends. I was going to schedule posts for this week after I told you that I was jetting off to Scotland.
But then I didn't. I left Tuesday evening with my mom and two flights later, it was Wednesday morning in Scotland and we were off to visit my sister. She has been studying at St. Andrew's this semester and we decided we should see her and Scotland before she came home!
We visited beautiful castles, a writer's museum, and ate so much food. We met my sister's friends and saw where she had been living and taking her classes. I still did a good amount of reading; really, it's not that hard when you have a six hour flight. I finally read One Hundred Years of Solitude after it languished on my bookshelves for years (like I bought it at Borders kind of years). I also read Lilli De Jong, Keeping Place: Reflections on the Meaning of Home, and A Bridge Across the Ocean.
Now I am trying to catch up on my life and looking forward to my birthday and the 24 Hour Readathon this weekend!
