May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14 NIV

Wednesday, August 13, 2008 is August already. As I look at the calendar, I realize it is almost to the half-way point of August. The months do fly by. Currently we are having a lovely respite from the three H's that usually dominate our summer weather in Maryland. No heat, humidity, and haze. Lately, we've had balmy breezes, blue skies, and perfect temperatures. We haven't turned the A/C on in 6 days. Hope that has an impact on the utility bill. I took this picture when I was out and about on one of our clear and beautiful days. These barns are a vanishing breed in Montgomery County, MD.

Next week, we are off to CA for a visit with the DGDs. We'll be with them for one day before they leave for a vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We'll house-sit while once again scoping out the area for a future place to live. When they get back, we'll stay on for a few more days of DGD hugs and kisses.

We're slooowwwwllly.....but surely attacking the closets and cleaning out the clutter. It's really discouraging to find boxes of stuff you packed up thirteen years ago when moving from CA to MD. But I'm finally getting to them and tossing out stuff like crazy. DH has found the shredder and he's having fun with that while watching the Summer Olympics. This closet used to be filled to the ceiling with boxes. You couldn't even walk into it. I'd say there is definite progress.

I'm working on a scrap quilt that I'll give to my FIL in November for his 90th birthday. There's a picture of the initial top on a previous blog. I'll take another picture and post it when I finish it. I just have the border to quilt and then the binding and label. I haven't even started my August BOM
for the TQS challenge. I'd really like to do that before we leave for CA.......maybe this coming weekend I'll get inspired.
