I am always eternally grateful when we pass mid-August as things can finally slow down enough for me to re-group and regain my sanity. It’s only ever been like this since Fi came into our lives and all of my friends and family started having kids. Summers are just B-U-S-Y. It seems like there is simply no time to be still. But I have managed to make progress in very small doses. I even sent off a quilt to be quilted and it should be arriving back home in another week or so.

I can see the tail end of summer now and I’m chomping at the bit for the cooler weather to arrive and the humidity to abate. I’ve been continuing to run when the weather allows while trying ignore the fact that I only have 2 more months before my next Half Marathon.
And in between all this the Wee Beastie turned 4 years old.
There was the Lego Brick Universe exhibit and what seemed like a billion other tiny events in between.
I’ve also been helping out on a friend’s farm once a week since the end of July. We just crated 100 chickens last week for processing. It was quite an event for two women and with the summer heat no creature was happy. Free range chickens are very crafty birds. Good food means hard work.
Now our yearly trip to the Renaissance Festival is looming and once more Fiona will need a new costume. Going back to the basics though and hoping that leaving a generous hem at the bottom will let me get an extra year of wear out of it. We’re going on Pirates weekend with some of our good friends and as long as it doesn’t rain I know it’ll be a blast!
