the last weekend in August

Happy Saturday morning!  Can you believe this is the last weekend in August?  I can feel a busy week ahead trying to complete a couple more projects on my August to do list.


I'm hoping to finish up my dining room spruce up and now that the weather has cooled a bit, the garden definitely needs my attention.  I think the weeds actually out number the flowers at this point.


All that can wait until Monday though.  This weekend is all about enjoying the last weekend of Summer...throwing something on the barbecue or a quick trip to the beach sounds just about perfect.  And of course opening a nice bottle of wine to finish off the day will definitely be in order.


What about you?  Any plans for the weekend?

xo, Patty

By the way, I broke down and bought a box of vanilla pudding and made a banana cream pie.  We indulged after dinner last night and boy, was it delicious!

  2. It's somehow reassuring that I'm not the only one with too many weeds. I have patching to do in the hallway in prepping the ceiling and walls for painting, but have a few other things to do first. Wow, the last weekend in August! Have a beautiful day, Patty.

  3. I think that we can all relate to the weeds thing. My veg garden has more weeds now than vegetables.
    With the drought it is too hard to pull the weeds. Can't wait for my hubby to roto the garden.

    Horray! Congratulations of the success of your banana cream pie!!! I've been getting the lower level living Family Room back to some order. Trust me...it looked like a bomb had gone off in there!!! Watching it rain every chance I get this weekend! I love to see the rain drops falling from the sky. A welcome sight, indeed! Have a blessed weekend, dear friend!
