i don't like to see (feel) summer leaving. i enjoy the heat and outside so much. of course, we don't have the scortching heat and humidity like much of the country. what we have is 10 months of fall/cold winters and 2 months of summer. no real spring, lucky to have an indian summer every other year or less. BUT, this was an exciting summer for me. in july, i turned 60, and just 2 days later my third grandson was born into my oldest sons family. they now have 3 boys, sam is 6, pete is almost 4 and today andy is 5 weeks old. wow, how blessed is that! i didn't start my monthly journal for the month of july like i wanted to, i did not have any pictures printed like i wanted because i need to wait till school starts to get back to work, but when i do put the month in an album i will be ready because i make journaling notes, kept receipts and lots of epherma (i need a spell check). both the front and back yards are green again with a lawn (missing for 5 years :( - don't ask) and my daisies and black eyed susans have bloomed all summer. i have been to one crop retreat and two 12 hour crops this summer and i always take my scrapbooking or cardmaking supplies when i house-sit. so i have been productive. my new daughter had a fright and ultimate victory over melanoma cancer in july, my daughter is looking for full time work and wonderful, both my sons are very blessed with wonderful wives and so i just want to say, Praise the Lord!
