Summer reading, wine, flowers and a local Bell Farm – June’s recap!

May flew right on by without photos to document the month.  I told myself I would get the camera out in June as not to miss another month.  Here is a selection of my photos from June.

Our little Nugget!  He is such a cool cat.  He went missing recently but managed to find his way back.  If only he had a GoPro, it would have been interesting to see where he went.

A rare photo of me (I’m always behind the camera) along with our sweet boxer Josie.

Views from a hike.

Summer flowers.

Wine ready to be consumed.

There is a Bell Farm a few miles from our house.  It has been on my list of places to photograph for a while.  This month I selected a day and headed over to grab some shots and explore.  I have no idea of the total number of bells but here is a select few.

There are also several old windmills.

Old barrels can be found in the front yard.

Loved this old barn!

Finally, a recap of the books I have read, including a few from May (the only photos I took with my camera that month).

  1.  “All the Missing Girls”  by Megan Miranda (368 pages).  A very suspenseful novel told in reverse.  Great book that kept my attention until the last page.
  2.  “Eat, Pray, Love”  by Elizabeth Gilbert (334 pages).  I finally got around to reading this novel and loved it.  Although I am not a religious person, I enjoyed following her spiritual journey of healing.
  3. “Glory Over Everything”  by Kathleen Grissom (365 pages).  What a fantastic book.  An excellent follow-up book to the Kitchen House.  I found myself becoming attached to the characters throughout the book.  Highly recommend this one.
  4. “The Girl Before”  by J.P. Delaney (336 pages).  Interesting read loved the way each chapter went back and forth from the past to the present.
  5. “The Telomere Effect”  by Elizabeth Blackburn and Elissa Epel (325 pages).  I found this book to be quite fascinating and very informative.  It renewed my interest in science and research.  Written in an easy to understand language for everyone, even those without a science background.
  6. “Wilde Lake”  by Laura Lippman (352 pages).  A great crime, mystery, and political novel all rolled into one.  It kept me guessing until the very end.

At the beginning of June, I picked up 5 novels with the goal of reading all of them by the end of July.  So far I am on track.  Also enjoying delicious wine with each.

Happy Summer (or winter, depending on your place on the planet)!
