I always turn the calendar page a few days before the end of the month. Sometimes as much as a week before because I want to start planning for what’s coming next. There are appointments to make and birthdays to remember. Meeting dates and places to check along with church events that may have been forgotten.
It was a busy couple of weeks here so I’m just getting around to turning to August on this next to the last day of July. For being such a long month, July flew right by. We were just celebrating Independence Day and now the month is over. Because the heat has been unbearable, I have stayed close to home these final days of the month. Our grandchildren left around 1 yesterday afternoon, and Terry and I just crashed for the rest of the afternoon. It didn’t occur to me that August was coming up fast.
The furniture is now back in place. The laundry has been done. It will undoubtedly be months before the grandchildren are here again. They will have a week’s school vacation in October so we may see them then. But, until then, it will be calm around here. We will resume our regularly scheduled programming as the final calendar pages of the year flip past.
