I'm striving to make this August a very "liked" month. When I was teaching middle school I didn't like August because it was chopped in half by teacher work week and then school beginning. When I was a kid I was so eager to get back to school (tired of lying around eating too much and lonely for day-to-day contact with my friends) that I wished it away. August deserves her "queen of summer" status so I am going to try to do some summery things. What summery things? Maybe float in the little pool in the back yard (we do have a privacy fence now - yay!) and make some jam. Feel free to leave jam tips in the comment section. 😍 Figure out what to do with the invading zucchini. Keep weeding and enjoying the hot weather blooms. Ride my bike. Go to the closest thing we have to a lake and walk around. Usually I am full of harvest thoughts WAY too early. So this year - a change. I think I may have asked you last year whether or not you have good August-y ideas. Feel free to contribute again! Thank you. 😙
Mr. Adorable has forgiven me.
Yesterday I walked to the bank and saw pink flowers. What are these? Do you know?
The sunflowers are wearing their lovely dresses.
Big pots of pretty are on sale at Home Depot.
Shiny show off!
And here is a shy girl . . .
As much as my disciplined self (very weak) wants to exercise, my meditative self (very strong) wants to read and knit.
What are you going to do this month? What are you pondering? (Thank you very much for your kind visit!)
