August always makes me think of Sunflowers!
I purchased a bundle of them for the kitchen table and every time I come home they make me smile.
My daughter texted me at work on Tuesday and jokingly said I should leave work and
come to her house so she could get a bit of time away from the children.
I texted back to say I couldn't leave work but would be there as soon as I got out.
Abby had a new Barbie doll from the dollar store.
She held it up next to her and said, "We match! We're both wearing dresses!"
Natalie is eating her pasta while sitting in the wooden high chair that my mum painted long ago.
That would have made her so happy!
We have been in the second to worst drought conditions and the temperatures have been very high.
There has been all kinds of brush fires in surrounding towns. Some of them have been fairly large.
Finally, it rained! It was not near enough but it was something.
The temperatures have started to go down as well...though it is still hot!
The children at the school I work at all went out onto the deck after nap and played in the rain.
