Happy Finale to August! ....

"Oh, the summer night,
Has a smile of light,
And she sits on a sapphire throne."
- Barry Cornwall

I am linking to quotes to live by on Notes from a Cottage Industry



With a happy smile, the summer sprites and I send August on its merry way to come again next year. We have enjoyed its picnic weather, its sudden, darkening skies, and its heady flowers... but Autumn awaits, and I will definitely let her in.... I have looked forward to the magical weekend and still have high hopes of spreading out a little preview of fall. Mom hasn't been really very perky the past week or so, and I personally think a new mantel would cheer her up... (wink!)... Haha... how she LOVES change! (not!)....

Lasagna for lunch today, homemade!!! I sure hope it tastes as delicious as it smells...
My son and his lady love are coming in a few minutes, so I need to readjust the table. I had planned on three more, but they are doing other things... Leftover lasagna sounds great in my lunch! (but not so diety...)

Gayla.... I love that lamp! And your new banner is so pretty too! Those bushes with the purple flowers you were asking about on my blog are called "Butterfly bushes" ;) I love them; they attract a wonderful variety of little creatures to my garden... have an enchanted day, my sweet friend.
