AUGUST...

(cookie jar "cupcake" in honor of birthday month )


HAS ARRIVED!


This is "birthday month" in my family. Dad, Uncle, Sister, Brother, Husband, 1st born, and ME. But, this year is a big one for me....I will hit a decade mark I never dreamed I would be....don't know what I was thinking, that I would just stay on hold??? Nope, time stands still for no one and it marched me right up to the very ominous six-oh....arrp, senior, golden, just plain OLD and good for nuttin. Dear me, I am getting melodramatic in my "old age". Decline in my future. To say I am in a slight funk would be putting it mildly. So, have decided to throw caution to the wind and party every single day of this month doing what I want and when I want and who cares?????????????????


I started early....yesterday I ordered the Kit doll for ME. I really wanted to get Ruthie too, but had to show some caution....Today I ordered Kit's washday set and another sweet little dress for her to wear. I know you are thinking this sounds very frivilous, and it is, humor me....I am getting on in years and don't have much time left.


I am putting together my proposal for a class at the Tea Expo next May. That is a goal I have set. I would love to present a seminar session there and so am taking the first steps. I will let you know if I get chosen. The deadline for submitting proposals is August 22 I believe, so I have plenty of time to fine tune the outline....I had lots of thoughts rolling around in my head and then suddenly they all came together and in 5 min. I had my outline! If I get selected, I will let you know what it is going to be about, it is clever, IMHO!


Oh, I did go to the Kit Kittredge movie and it was wonderful.
oh, I added the cookie jar cupcake to set the "mood" for a birthday month ....
Now, off to walk friend Fiona, hit the grocery stores, and try to keep cool....a challenge in August in NC
