School started August 1st, and I’ve been busy getting myself adjusted to working full-time again; so the blog has been idle for a few weeks. I hope you missed me.
Since the last post (JUL 25), I’ve reviewed a children’s book over at A Beach, a Book, and a Breeze. It’s the story of a young rabbit family who have to adjust their vacation plans because of Father’s pay cut at his job. The author weaves biblical teachings with adventure and fun. Great read for parents and elementary aged children.
Last weekend, my younger daughter and I participated in our third 5K race together at Red Top Mountain State Park in Cartersville, GA. She managed to eek out a third place finish in the 25-29 year old age group. As for myself, well after taking a dive around the 2 mile mark (tripped over a root, but only scratched my palms and my pride) I finished the race in 53 minutes.
My daughter has lost count of the races she has run, but this was my third. I started this madness back in January, and now, it’s a new passion. Not only is it helping me to stay fit in my “senior” years, but I have a purpose for traveling and a source for new article ideas, as well as, an opportunity to hone my photography skills. Look for updates here on the main blog and here, Georgia Adventures with Pauliana, where I write about the different places my husband and I visit around the state.
