Auld August, bye bye

Good bye August. You have so many days, and so many of those 31 were spent indoors because you are a hot, hot month. And when you aren’t hot, you are pouring down the rain.

I spent a good deal of that time reading and stitching.

I can’t explain why I had the desire to stitch these little houses all during the 2 years of Covid isolation. I had this one finished into a stand up piece, and now what am I do to with it? I have 4 more little houses that I can finish. When I have a little village of these houses, all perfectly and precisely stitched, will it remind me that we tried so hard to keep our HOMES safe and together as the seasons passed so slowly?

Do you feel that the worst of Covid is over? I have friends that are catching it, but it hasn’t been more than a serious cold? Just asking…it IS still with us, and yet I keep stitching these little houses.

And now on to the garden. Our Propagator friend is running this week end, but I like to join his Six on Saturday fans. Is his running, like my stitching, how he keeps it all together in these strange times? Maybe.

So, farewell August 2022, and hello September, what surprises do you hold?

Question for fellow bloggers. Have you ever attempted to print out some of your own favorite blog posts? How do you print it without all the ads and WordPress stuff appearing? I can’t figure that out.

    Lovely little houses, so clever and a good way to spend the Covid years. It is still doing the rounds, some get a cold others a bad flu. I think it has more in it yet. For the printing, could you copy and paste the bits you want onto a plain word doc, then print?
