TGIF

I can't believe we are already into August. Where has this year gone? It's time for school to start back and to me that means it's time to start thinking of Christmas. Yikes! Way too early. But that's all I'm doing is thinking about it.

I also can't believe my youngest grandchild, Luci will be 8 this month and my oldest will be 19 in September - gosh I can't believe it.

I have found a new favorite TV show on TLC, The Learning Channel. It is 'Craft Wars'. I absolutely love reality shows. I was kinda creative and crafty some 20 years ago but since then not so much but on this show I am finding some new inspiration. So far I've learned how to make tissue paper flowers and they look like they belong on a float. Actually I haven't used any of this knowledge yet - gotta get some supplies for a couple of things I've seen so far. I am so looking forward to putting something together. I will share it if I do a good enough job.

Haven't taken any flower photos lately. The gardens are kinda ugly right now with a few blooms but mostly bloomed out plants. There is lots to do in the gardens but I've been lazy. The lazy days of summer I think is what is really.

But I have been perusing my spring garden books dreaming of next year. But before spring, comes the fall and winter. I am making plans for a fall garden and hope I can bring it to fruition. Finances always play the biggest part of those decisions.

Hope you have a nice weekend.

This summer has just flown by, that's true. It's too early for me to think of Christmas yet! Hope you have a nice weekend.

I hate to say it but the older you get the faster the time goes by. I cannot imagine why but it just happens that way. You have a great weekend as well. Diane

Hi Becca, thanks for stopping by, my glads are supported by some tall flower supports with string interwoven around them, a little like a 'cat's cradle'. I don't bother lifting the glads in the fall, and they are still coming back better each year. This year some are four feet tall.

Hi kid, hope you are doing well. I think about you and think I should email her, then I get distracted and forget everything, even my name sometimes. No really, I do think of you. I hope your Mom is doing good!

I just discovered Craft Wars too. I really enjoy seeing how different people, using the same supplies, can come up with entirely different interpretations on the same thing.

Hi Becca,we are all going through a 'lull' in blogging it seems! I intend posting and it gets put off and then I wonder why its a month since I posted last.Christmas will creep up on us as it always does.

Summer feels like it's winding down here too. My flower beds look tired out! I think I may be too.

Hi Becca, I have not been keeping up with blogs so well now that I'm spending too much time on Facebook. I was thinking I hadn't been to your blog in awhile, so I stopped by, and see you haven't posted real recently.

I hope your fall garden is taking shape. I have some lettuce coming up. It's ready to be thinned as soon as I make it out there. It's just a small patch, though. I planted some more a few days ago.

I hope all is well with you and the grandkids. One of mine will be 5 in January, and the other turned 1 in April. They sure grow fast, don't they?
