Say Farewell To August

August 31, 2016

Good morning.  Wowsie!  Have you noticed that it is already the last day of August?  My goodness, this was a really quick month!  In just a few weeks, Autumn will begin.  Some kids have already started back to school, and next week our kids will be back in school too. 

I called one of the local glass companies, and someone is coming by Friday to see what can be done to make some weather panels for the porch screens.  Hopefully, this will be a positive meeting, and we can come up with the panels that I'm looking for.

This morning, Cliff is outside painting the trim on the house.  The parts that are done are looking nice, but it makes the parts that aren't done look poorly.  I guess I'll have to get all the trim done.  Of course, what else is new?  I had originally planned on only having the front of the house done.  Ah well, I guess everything will look a lot nicer after all the trim is done.

Have you noticed that there aren't as many bees this year as there usually are?  I'm hoping that once we have more floral bushes planted on the porch side of the house that we'll get more bees coming to our yard.  Our plants need these bees.  Here's a couple photos from another year when the bees were more plentiful.

Today I think I'll make a pan of pasta and meat sauce for supper.  DIL Janet will be coming by after work, and this is one of our favorite meals.  Yummy!  I also want to play on my laptop too.  I'd like to make a few more quick pages to have on hand. 

I do have a new QP for you today.   This one show's nature enjoying a happy, lazy summer day.  I hope you can use it.

Here is your download link:

Aunt Lucy has been away with family on Martha's Vineyard, and somewhere else on Cape Cod for the past week or so.  I'll give her a call later today to see if she's back home yet.  (or when)  I have some yarn for her but I don't want to send it to her unless she's back home. 

Now I think I'll get the vacuum out and run it around a bit.  I want to spray the carpet and Pogo's furniture again.  Ssssh, I don't want to say this out loud, but it's looking like we're getting control over the flea problem.  But I'm not taking any chances, so a-spraying I will go.

On that happy note, I'll take my leave.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

August went by fast indeed!
It wasn't planned at first, but now that you've decided to have all the trim painted, it will look nice when it is finished and it is also good to preserve it.
Your aunt Lucy is quite a busy bee, hey? But it is nice that she has a lot of people looking after her at her age.
You have a nice time with Janet and the pasta and I;ll go posting on my blog now.
Have a wonderful day(hope the fleas will disappear real soon now!because it is a lot of work)

With the arrival of September, the weather here in Michigan became a bit autumn-like. That is so much better than the endless heat and humidity we've had all summer!

Pasta with meat sauce is one of my favoeirte meals too.

Your place looks so lovely. Sometimes, I just click on your blog to enjoy the pictures you post.

I wish a beautiful Fall for everyone!
