My August in a Sentence a Day:
Rejoicing on this 5 year anniversary of Mr. Menace’s quadruple bypass and thankful for the ever advancing knowledge of medicine.
Feeling of pride and contentment from a job well done for the past week and a half.
Getting a budget in order for the month feels kindof good.
I almost let the birds beat me out of any fig preserves this year! Note to self: check fig trees in July.
I wish I was with my mama today as it is her wedding anniversary and I am positive she could use a hug.
Short staffed this week with the yearly conference happening, but the customers keep calling anyway.
I was once asked what would indicate to me that I had “made it” in life. My reply was “to be able to afford weekly manicures, or even monthly pedicures.” #notthereyet
Aren’t Wednesdays suppose to be slow days at work???
It’s finally 4:21 pm and the end of the work day is in sight and I am hoping the rain holds off until after dark so I can relax in the hot tub for a while.
I am excited to see Mr. Menace tonight since he has been away all week at a business conference. Although I suspect our date night will be preempted by his lingering sinus infection.
Our little town had its first ever Farmers Market today and it was a huge success. I hope to have my garden up and going by next spring so I can participate and not just buy stuff, but here’s what I scored:
It’s my brother’s birthday and I just cannot figure out how that aggravating boy that teased me and annoyed me and was a general pain you know where, became a 60 year old man. I love you Bubba.
Bacon & eggs, and Biscuits & Figs. It’s what’s for supper.
Called my mama. Oh to be like her.
Spent 1/2 my lunch hour in the garden center at Lowe’s and bought what they had left in the herb department.
Found some delightfully blue fall flowers at Dollar General! BLUE!!! So I hit all 5 Dollar Generals that are within 5 miles of the office. 🙂
Happy 80th Birthday Mama! You are the best.
It’s a beautiful Saturday and I’ve worked on my Herb Bed, but it’s HOT outside!
We are driving to Nashville today, to my daughters house which is in the Eclipse Totality area. I wasn’t totally enthused at first, to spend my birthday this way, but it is probably a once in a lifetime chance to see a total eclipse. (And writing this in hindsight, I am extremely glad I got to see it!)
I am happy to be 56.
Hair color day I love you.
My whole forearm aches. I got stung by a yellow jacket the other day and those things HURT!
Granddaughter’s middle school football game. But I’m just watching the cheerleader. 🙂 She is on the bottom of the second lift from the left.
I’m glad it’s date night. I am looking forward to some good food. Did you see my favorite restaurants HERE?
Spent the entire day outside: working on my herb bed, mowing grass, rearranging outdoor furniture and pots. Perfect day.
Visited with a good friend today. She seemed like her old self, before the dementia.
I am absolutely positively sure that I answered one million and one phone calls today.
Today, I totally dressed down (read: sloppy) and SURPRISE! we had visitors come to the office.
I am not ready to give up summer! But I sure have seen some cute fall decor at the stores. I feel a shopping trip coming on this long weekend.
Ah….. chicken nachos, I love you.
