While I Wasn't Looking...

August arrived! What happened to July? I've been busy with this and that, and suddenly summer is more than halfway over. The month was filled with reading, visiting with my sons, trying to follow the insanity of politics, too much Facebook time, a couple "real time" visits with friends, long conversations over the telephone with people I love...

The best thing about it, I've been enjoying this summer! As usual, I've avoided getting out on the really hot days, but we've had some mild weather. Tomorrow it will be back down in the 80's again! Love that!

I decided to start selling some bits and pieces on eBay. So far, not so profitable. The shipping costs are so high, and there are multiples of the kind of items I'm selling. Years ago, I could make some pretty nice spending money this way, but that has changed. I'm going to need to reevaluate and see if there's a better way to sell.

The one thing I haven't done much of is writing, other than a few blog posts. I still have stories swirling in my head, but I just can't seem to get them written down. I guess they're not done percolating yet.

Speaking of percolating, it's time for a cup of coffee and the news... or maybe a fun Netflix program instead, but coffee for sure!

I completely understand! FB? Yep, me too but trying to cut back. LOL

This summer, so far, has passed quickly, I agree. It seems like my great granddaughter just left 4th grade and now beginning 5th next Wednesday.

How about an etsy shop? Maybe?

And, Nita Jo, things are swirling around my head also that I want to write about, but somehow I lose those thoughts. I need to just jot down a note when I get a old "newsflash". :)

My granddaughter told me yesterday that I had asked about the same thing 4 days in a row. Of course, I don't believe her. Okay, then now I don't even remember her answer. :)


P.S. One thing about getting OLDER for me? I can read the same book three months later and not remember the ending.
Have a Happy Saturday.

Sally, Thanks for the comment and for stopping by! Your comment about the book made me laugh so much! I feel the same way about movies. They sometimes feel brand new, even though I know I've seen them before. Haha! I'll just call it a bonus of aging!
