What is there to say about August? At my first glance back, August was overall uneventful. A quiet ending to a hot summer-but surprisingly not scorching. We barely got into the 100’s this year and we are already cooling off for fall. I have spent a couple of weekends with my mom, shopping to get her guest bedroom together for a bit of an upgrade. It mostly came together. The side tables, though, were delayed. It was in stock, but unable to ship out in time. Mom loved them enough to wait for them. Otherwise, once we got the things into the bedroom, she decided the bed linens needed to be upgraded as well. We’ve been searching for something good. The guests came in over the weekend. At least the guest bedroom was mostly ready for them. GDC Home had a good sale over the weekend. Jon and I walked away with a bit of an unexpected piece for the living room. I plan to do a post on that soon. Taz turned 9 this month. Seriously, where is that foundation of eternal youth? He needs to stop growing old. Is there a dog version of Peter Pan? He’s been in my life since he was 4 months old and I would have no idea how to live without him. On second thought, August has always been about subtlety.
