Struggling to really figure out how to start this post on my holiday to America. It’s been a couple of weeks since returning from the States and feels like memories of the holiday are already starting to get a little bit blurry.
I had an amazing, if a little exhausting, time. Not one moment was spared. We, perhaps, had a couple of hours one afternoon where we truly were doing nothing. But other than that, every single day in the full two weeks were spent doing something or another. (If we were in Portland, that “doing something” was one of two things – eating or drinking.)
So rather than some long-winded tale, how about some sort of photo story? I’ve posted a few photos of the trip on my Instagram, but here there are a few more than I’ll be posting here. (Warning, there are a LOT of images behind this cut – so the page may take a little while to load.)
Just like that, Project 365 2014 is over! December’s rolled around and been out incredibly quickly. That’s what happens when you have a non-stop month. Standard for the month of Christmas and all.
It’s been a quiet November here at the blog and for me personally. A combination of nothing at all happening and then everything happening at once.
For the first couple of weeks I was waiting for the man to come back from his work trip to the States, where he had been for just about a month. So that waiting part can definitely be classified as the quiet part of the month. A few days after his return my folks came over for their first ever visit to Bahrain. And that’ll be the everything happening at once part of November.
Oh hey, November – you’re here already? I wasn’t expecting you so soon. See, I thought October might have been a bit longer. Well, as long as you’re here, stick around, won’t you.
The weather has finally started cooling down! The couple of weeks in October were lovely. Sure, it’s still in the low 30s during the day. But the evenings have been lovely. Nothing better than sitting on the balcony with a couple of beers, chatting the night away.
September. The month traditionally known for the end of summer and the start of autumn. Except in Bahrain where it’s October and still pretty damn hot outside!
The month itself has been business as usual with no major excitement. Honestly, these highlights are going to be a bit dull this month!
