Oh the Doggy Days of Summer!  Who thought up that saying any way..?

August is Friendship month

1st week of August you can celebrate “Clown week”

August 3rd – Watermelon Day

August 25th – I’ll need to get a birthday card out to my Dad

August 27th – kids go back to school

The month of August is a pretty laid back month for me, however here in my neck of the woods there will be lots going on

Now that we all have a little bit of a breather before Labor Day the Official holiday, that says that the summer is over and get back to routines.

Plan of Attack?

I don’t want to say it out loud, but………..WHAT’S with the humidity?   I live in NW Colorado where it’s DRY.

Oh well, gives me a chance to stay inside and work on some of my piles of paper.  Don’t know if I mention it or not,but I always have a stack of magazine/newspaper clippings of project ideas or places  I want to visit, notes of important things like phone numbers birthdays I feel I need to remember,etc.

I am a visual person and I’ve tried several ideas in the past unfortunately, I’m still trying to figure out the best plan of attack.

Have a Great Day!

Rain? What you taking about?

I have been watering my potted plant every day this summer, you all know how dry it has been.  Our local weather man has been teasing us with the possibility of rain for a couple of weeks now.

Oh yeah the wind comes up and the clouds gather and darken and the they move east which the eastern slope which is good I guess, because they really need the rain, but not the wing, because of all the fires.

Some one was doing the rain dance this weekend we actually got some afternoon rain showers. It’s been raining off an on for two days now which is great, but the fire ban in my area is still in affect.

On the positive side my potted plant are looking fabulace!


Have a Great Day!

Brown’s Park Bird Refuge

It just kind of happened. My sweetie and I had the same days off this week, which has been very unusual for us lately. So we took the the opportunities and literally threw the tent , sleeping bag, and the cooler and headed to Brown’s park Bird refuge.

This is the Green River running through Brown’s Park
Doesn't this look so peaceful?  It really was, try thinking about taking off in the middle of the week.  We had the campground pretty much to ourselves.

The first day was quite windy, but the next day was up in the 80* and the wind had calmed down.  We took a few long walks, sat in the camp chair reading, watched the birds and did a lot of just simple relaxing.  It was Great!
Have a Great Day!

To many colored pencils? NEVER!

It’s kinda like collecting crayons or ink pens that have dried up ink right?

I’ve had some time to myself this past week and I have actually went  into my office space and started going  through some of my boxes in my closet

Most time than nun I immediately go right to the computer to check mail and then you all know what happens next?  The surfing begins and my project never even get started.

I’m so proud of myself! I emptied three boxes of “office supplies”, you know things like paper clips, rubber bands, adding machine tape for a machine I don’t have any more and found homes for all of the “office supplies”.

I just couldn’t throw away the ink pens……. baby steps.

Have a Great Day!
