Hello September

I’ve been waiting and waiting for September to arrive this year…not because I turn 48 on 9/11, but because this is the month I’m becoming a grandmother. My grandbaby is expected on September 18, and I can’t wait!! Just a few more days now.

But first I thought we’d say goodbye to August. Here are 10 pictures from my August. Tell me something you did last month that you enjoyed! πŸ™‚

7 augAs the fountain pen addict I am, I bought a new pen. All black with crystal black ink. My precioussssssss 😍

8 aug

I wrote and re-wrote and revised and edited my poems for my final assignment for the poetry course I was taking. But the hard work paid off, and I got the highest grade possible for my work, so yay!

12 aug

I did some shopping for my granddaughter 😍

15 aug

We had a (appropriately physically distant) picnic by the side of the canal with bubbly and a couple good friends, and watched as a boat with a band playing live music drove past. Very nice.

August was so freaking hot I thought we’d moved into a volcano. So one day, my husband said “After I get off work, we’re going on a road trip in our air-conditioned car.” So we did. We went to the ocean and enjoyed the breeze and photographed this lighthouse.

I cooked a lot. Lasagna among other things. It was yummy.

23 aug

I bought a seven-inch single of an old favorite song, and learned what Slice Me Nice actually means. πŸ˜‚

I woke up early every morning and got up to write. I have a gazillion pictures in my phone of the sunrise; I’m obsessed sunrises and sunsets…and skies in generalΒ  😍

I bought and read a fantastic book! It’s a book by a Swedish author; a story about two SΓ mi families, written in free verse. Never in my life have I read such a thick book with so few words, saying so freaking much. I would give it ten stars if I could, and I’m suffering from a severe book hangover after reading this masterpiece.

And on the last day of August, we went on a road trip to visit my parents.

  1. Sounds like you had a fun and busy August and can expect and even busier (happily so) September! I’m afraid I don’t have anything memorable to point to…just busy with a crowded day-to-day life here. πŸ™‚
