What I did with my extra August Day.

Holding patterns are not a comfortable place for me.  I must keep busy. The first week of August was a week of waiting……….waiting on permission to move forward with the house.

After repairs, the date for closing kept moving forward. By the fourth day,  I needed something to take my mind off things I had little, if any, control of.

My “go to” stress reliever is decorating and re decorating.

Not a problem for me at all.

September is shaping up to be a busy month. And August has 31 days. September only has 30. Makes sense to move some of September projects to August, such as fall decorating.

I stopped myself before I got to the outside. It is still summer out there.

So, my dears, what are you going to do with your extra August day going into September? Maybe like me it’s already been spent. I have to say, in my case, it was a day well spent.

Happy Fall…2015

Rain, winds, and floods…..oh my!

Fall 2015 will go down in the weather history books.

I was spared the devastation left by the flooding in my area. My heart goes out to those facing the aftermath of loss of property and / or loss of loved ones. 

Although the rain has stopped, flooding is still a threat, with dams breaking and roadways, bridges collapsing.

 

 

Fall has always been my favorite seasons. In light of the misery inflicted on others, I can not say Fall 2015 is my favorite season of 2015.

 

To lighten the mood of this blog, photos of my fall touches. A memorable fall for me. The first fall in the new house.
