August Monthly News

Welcome to the August edition of monthly news!
My baby turned 19! Now both of my kids are adults!! That is a change in itself.
Won a weekend pass to Riverfest Elora. Saw The Sheepdogs and 54-40 perform, among a few lesser known bands, and that was cool. We only went the one day though. Work calls!
Other than that it was all about family as we get set for the next season to arrive.
What did you do this month that was out of the ordinary?

  1. I must read another Catherine Mackenzie book, I enjoyed the one I did read. I don't think I did anything out of the ordinary in August, made me pause and think.

  6. I can't wait to read Fractured...and I LOVED Pretty Girls. I'm eagerly awaiting Slaughter's newest book. Thanks for sharing.

    Five of my GRANDchildren are now "adults." LOL. Funny how quickly that happens.

  7. Seems crazy how fast time goes by, right? I'm sure it will seem like no time before my kids are grown too. I already can't believe I'm the mom of a teen.
