A quick wrap-up of some things...

So the Hugo Awards have been awarded. I was at my older son's concert at the time, so I was sneaking peaks at Twitter in between pieces. I'm pleased with the list of winners even though it doesn't quite match up with my list of preferences.

I've discovered some great new-to-me blogs, which I'm writing down here for anyone looking for interesting stories or great recipes:

Naomi Kritzer
Ursula Vernon/T. Kingfisher
Pear Nuallak
Lady and Pups
Two Red Bowls
O & O Eats

I spent 17 days glued to the television, watching the Rio Olympics. I'm sorry I never got to see any Modern Pentathlon. Gymnastics was amazing on the women's side, frustrating on the men's side. Equestrian was just insane, particularly the day they were doing Steeplechase in the drizzle. Sandra Boynton's son, Devin McEwan, competed in Canoe Doubles Slalom with Casey Eichfeld and came in 10th.

Also, we went to Canada for a week and I haven't blogged about that at all yet. Next post, perhaps.
