As the month of August moves along, there are two favorites that appear….red, ripe, juicy tomatoes and fresh okra! We definitely make room to enjoy both!

I will confess, first of all, that my blogging motivation is greatly lacking. I didn’t need to tell you that, did I? LOL
In a month of no holidays, The Husband and I chose the date of our marriage, the 16th of August, giving us a reason for celebrating something in this month. It has been 52 years since that wedding day!
Why is it that all the pictures I took from our time away to celebrate are food-related? I keep telling myself that there are other photo-worthy opportunities, then wind up not remembering to take a picture at all!
It looks like I’m going to have to rely on words rather than pictures this morning, as this system isn’t cooperating with my efforts to post pictures!
For a number of years, our anniversary was the only celebration in August….until 15 years ago when Munchkin #2 was born! She came along on the 14th, and has brought joy and sunshine to all of us ever since! It’s always fun to put together a birthday surprise for her.
We headed out on a short trip to Abingdon, VA to celebrate our anniversary. This has been a favorite destination for a long time. I lived in Abingdon for two years in the sixties, and there are still friends there. It was really good to be able to visit on this trip, thanks to the vaccine!
The Barter Theater in Abingdon has been able to make arrangements to use the Moonlite Drive-In facilities for outdoor performances during the pandemic. Unfortunately, lightning/thunder/rain interfered, and the show was called. We’ll try for one again another time. It is hoped that performances will be able to resume in the theater.

Finally!! Fewer than 30 minutes ago, I placed the final piece in this puzzle!
It was a month ago that I began working on this one. Of course, there have been a few other things to be done in addition to working this puzzle; however, it has taken much longer than any other jigsaw puzzle I have done.
As I’ve mentioned earlier, I often seal and frame some of the puzzles. This one, however, will not have that experience. Planning to leave it out for a few days, however, then….time to begin another one!
What do you think of this one? It has about half the number of pieces as the other, yet I am able to see that there will be a number of the same color, which is always a challenge.
Taking some time off for puzzles….thinking I’ll do a bit more reading instead.
August has begun a little cooler here. It’s a short-lived break, though. Warmer temps will arrive just as the students in our county begin their next school year!
Though we are vaccinated, we have continued to wear our mask when in public indoor spaces. How about you?
Be safe! Stay cool!
