So, I seem to be the queen of random, lengthy, catch-up posts, but I neither want to give up sharing in this space or put more time/energy into it than I feel inspired about. So, here goes the first half of August...

And then, my girls all left for over a week to spend time with both sets of grandparents. They had a blast and I was able to get a major kitchen tiling project done, and spend lots of time with the man that I love.

I seriously appreciated the power wet saw with a diamond cutting blade that my hubs insisted was necessary for the job. Did I mention that I love that man?
I spent a little time each day gathering from my seriously overgrown garden.
Ooooh, and we took a 10-mile bike ride most evenings.
We spied a pair of sandhill cranes enjoying the bike path as well.
After several full days of hard work, the flooring was completed, though I never did get a great pic of it.
And the girls came home brimming with all of their usual exuberance, curiosity, and playfulness, and it was so, so good to have them home. Isn't that little tufted caterpillar a cutie?
I can only sigh and say, it's a good life.
