Summer Breeze/August Wishes

"Some beach somewhere, there’s a big umbrella casting shade over an empty chair. Palm trees are growing, warm breezes blowing. I picture myself there, some beach somewhere." By Unknown.
Look at the big boat about to go under the Coronado Bridge

Have fun, enjoy the end of summer.

Walk or ride bike 30 minutes per day.

Finish baby boy blanket.

Schedule annual physical for September.

Check on classes.....photography, calligraphy, cooking.  Sur La Table has some good classes for a beginner, maybe I will sign up for September.

Schedule calligraphy class for fall at Pinspiration.

Schedule dental teeth cleaning for September.

Finish Halloween book that I started last year, and never quite finished.

Plan blog posts 10 days in advance.
View from our window, Used to be called The Boat House, Now it is Bluewater Boathouse.
Plan fall projects:
  • book painting from stonegableblog.  I LOVE this blog- take a look if you have a minute.
  • pack beach stuff and take to storage- I know if you have a basement you are laughing.  We put cars in our garage so I rent storage space.
  • bring fall stuff from storage 
  • clean garage for upcoming sale
  • plan garage sale for October
  • fall wreaths front door
  • fall lighted houses to upper shelf 
  • find plastic accent dishes for fall....Sur la Table or Williams Sonoma - I loved the summer ones from Williams Sonoma and now I want a few fall accents.  They look like stoneware and are very solid.  Not like plastic at all and I don't worry a bit about if they crash to the floor.  No kids or dogs will have glass in their feet or paws.  Also great for outdoors.
  • mantle for fall
  • schedule window washer 
  • birthdays....j,w and w 
  • order Halloween costumes-Chasing Fireflies 
  • pick a few favorite projects from Pinterest and buy supplies- can I work on any during beach visit?

I love looking at the Coronado Bridge.  It is a beautiful bridge.

This is a favorite song of one of our son's and I do believe he lives with these words in mind.  Enjoy....

Live Like You Were Dying.........by Tim McGraw
"I went skydiving
I went Rocky Mountain climbing
I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named Fumanchu
And I loved deeper
And I spoke sweeter
And I gave forgiveness I'd been denying"
And he said
"Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying"
