August Memoirs

As August comes to a close, I try to remember the sights, sounds, tastes, feelings, thoughts that August brought to mind.

One special time that was shared in August was my youngest daughter and I had a special day together at a Tea House in the City. She had received a gift card through her American Heritage Girl Troop LAST year, and we had not taken the time to go.
It was such a nice time. She nor I had ever been, but after going once, I know we would love to go back again! Next time, with Cameo!

Everything was delicate and lovely. Carlie Jean took such great care, adding the cream and sugar to her English Tea. ;)
She told me... "Moma, you need to make sure you point your pinky out when you take a sip. It's a rule." I giggled a little and told her not to worry... I am a pinkie pointer by nature, I do it without thinking.

Another August first for me...
My eldest became a driver!
She was very nervous and wanted to take her test since her birthday, but was a bit skiddish. Obviously she did well, because she is now the proud owner of a driving permit and is doing excellently.

Today looks promising for rain. With Hurricane Isaac in the Gulf, we are bound to get some. I know those poor souls are ready for the storm to move on.

We begin school next week. I am STILL planning. I think I have procrastinated for LONG enough and I need to get things DOWN in the books. I am eager to begin school, but for some reason, the planning is overwhelming me. I guess it's because I have one that will be ready to graduate in just a short amount of time. Yikes!
So, I must leave you and stop my chatter. Feed my young ones and sit down and nail down some plans for this years learning.
Have a great long weekend, my friends!



  1. Last day of August....where did it go? Is there a *blue moon* tonight?

  2. Great August memories :) Thanks for sharing them. I enjoyed reading your post.

  3. Hello Dearest Chas, So very long since my last visit. Lovely to catch up with you. I am amazed your oldest is driving. Whew! Time flies. This is my last semester of home schooling and I am still waiting for the Lord to tell me what I will do when I am done (sometime in spring). I think of you often and was delighted to find you still here in the neighborhood. I am going to try your spag. sauce, my daughter and I thought it sounded yummy. I usually just make tomatoe sauce. As always, thank you for your ideas, recipes and encouragement. We are sisters in Christ-God Bless you.
