Where the Heck Did August Go?

United States
August 31, 2017 5:42am CST
Seems just a short time ago that it was then end of July. I dreaded that because I was turning 60. Was a rough day for me. LOL, but I survived to tell the tale. Now it is the end of August and the crisp air tells me that autumn weather is not far away. One day we have the heat on, the next the windows are wide open. Can never plan ahead it seems when it comes to the weather. I would love to go to the beach again this weekend. However, hubby wants to go to another fair. It will be a fun day for Little Miss though. Lots laughs and a fireworks display at the end of the day. We could go to the beach the following weekend though. But, I believe that my husband will be left behind because he has a bow shoot. I could take my daughter with me. Driving long distances alone aren't my cup of tea. So, with August ending soon, are you trying to make plans for the next month too?

I wish I could tell you where August went. It went by so fast, and now school is starting. We're getting some cooler weather as well. Fall probably isn't too far behind.

@ElusiveButterfly I know the feeling. I'm sad that summer is almost over. Although I'll complain when winter is here, especially if it's a cold one.

@dodo19 my elderly clients tell me often of how bad winter will be this year. I hope they are incorrect with their statements. We will have to wait and see.

I never 'plan' anything. It seems any time I do, something happens to ruin them, so I just 'go with the flow' and whatever happens, happens.

Hmmm, maybe I should do that as well. I do have to plan around the weekend I have to work though. Hate working weekends, but at least I now only have one weekend a month that I have to work.

I know i can't believe august is about over and a new month to begin. I'm not looking forward to September as Im having heart surgery the end of the month. I haven't been to a beach at all this summer but that's okay i did go to a water park for a week so that will do. Busy weekend for me with labor day this weekend lots of festivities going on.

I have Labor Day off, which is unusual for me. Not sure / what I'll do with the day just yet. What is the procedure you are having on your heart?

@ElusiveButterfly they are replacing my mitral valve that is leaking which is causing my left ventricle to enlarge.

A day at the beach is on our short term wish list also, but I fear it may not be happen. Time is flying by. We are booked this weekend, so no beach, and we have an out-of-town wedding to go to next weekend, so no beach unless we can squeeze in some time on the Sunday afternoon. It depends when we roll in, we're taking a hotel room for the night following the wedding. Good luck with making your last trip to the beach for the year wish happen.

I do enjoy decorating for the holidays as well. But, the snow and cold weather is not a favorite.

@ElusiveButterfly It isn't for many people, but for me it's a favorite, though the harsh sub zero temps aren't so much. I don't go out if I can avoid it in such cases.

@just4him I have to go out in it all week long unless my company cancels visits because the roads are bad.

We are hoping it get at least one camping trip in before it gets too cold. We just take day to day. We don't make plans because they rarely happen. Seems plans never work out.

I guess I will go with the flow although I have some projects due in September. This is going to be some sort of a challenging month.

I don't have the habit of planning anything in advance. However, it is surprised me how the time running fast. First week of September is filled with holidays. Our 'Onam' (south Indian festival) is also on the row. So I will be off from mylot from Saturday to Monday.
