I am packing July things up today and decorating the house for August.
Sunflowers are my theme. Every year I have a sunflower garden. This year I sowed my seeds late. They will bloom in late August or early September. I will use the bird's sunflowers until mine are ready.
My old journal is full. Today I began a new August journal. I filled in our program of study and our daily activities. I have an event planner and a place to write the birds and butterflies that come to call. I keep track of what's in bloom each week of the month. I keep a running total of picked zucchini and tomatoes. I write my ideas down, my hopes and my dreams, our comings and goings. I have a place for the little poems that pop into my mind. I am decorating, redoing and refining. It is misting outside.
