Good bye August

“August has passed, and yet summer continues by force to grow days. They sprout secretly between the chapters of the year, covertly included between its pages.”

Jonathan Safran Foer

Good morning everyone. Hard to believe this is the last day of August. Going to be a hot and humid one just as a reminder that August hasn't left us yet. Nothing on my agenda so I'm thinking about doing what I did yesterday--taking a nice long walk before it gets really hot. Trying to squeeze my exercise in.

 Also going to pack a few more items of clothing to make room for fall. It will be here before we know it and since I will be in school, I really want to be prepared. Ordered a few new tops for this fall and winter. About time. After all, I am 52 pounds and 3 sizes smaller than what I have. Last year I felt very self-conscious about my clothes because they were too big. It really hit home when I was looking at jackets and some lady said, in a very nice way, "You should buy it. Your jacket is way too big on you." This year I want to feel proud.

Good bye, August.  Welcome September.  Been waiting for you to come along.  Missing school.  Missing my friends.  The long wait will be over next week.

Have a good one.

Have a good one.


  1. I am happily counting down the hours until August moves on. Not my best month of the year. You deserve to buy new clothes. I hope you find something that you like soon!

  2. Congratulations on getting a new wardrobe for a new size! My sister used to work at Weight Watchers. To this day she can count points and still knows how to eat smart!

  3. September blessings to you Mary my friend, I'm happy you enjoyed your walk.

  4. After losing weight, it is fun buying new clothes. 52 lbs. is quite a lot and after all that hard work, you deserve to show it off in new duds.
