I’m not sure where the summer has gone. We’re half-way done and a week into August already. Crazy.
We’re at that part of the summer when it’s very warm and I am either lethargic or if I do have to get something done, I can become quite grumpy. Comes from being fair-skinned and loving the cold weather more than the warm. Oh well, it doesn’t last long and usually by the end of August, there are some lovely evening breezes.
My apologies for a bit of lazy blogging as I have not been doing much writing but mostly posting some fabulous videos from around Scotland. I really do appreciate the talented people who put together the videos and during my summer hiatus here, it’s lovely to be able to post a few for you.
All that being said, I have managed to read a few books. I’ve been learning a bit about the 1800’s and 1900’s in Scotland and about industrialization. I watched Neil Oliver’s “History of Scotland” and then I read the last part of his book on this era. I have always been a bit of a medieval Scotland buff but I’m looking forward to doing some more reading on the social history of industrialization and of emigration to North America.
I also just bought Jack Whyte’s “The Renegade” which I am planning on reading next. I don’t know too much about it but I will keep you posted.
Happy summer to you all !
