If I don't hurry with this post, July will be gone. Our daughter came over for supper and afterward we settled down in our comfy seats in the living room after dinner. She turned on the tv to watch the Investigation Discovery channel and I turned on my laptop.
I'd never watched any of the shows, but I got interested in this episode and that has put me behind. Not that I have anything all that interesting to share today. ☺
So many seem to be leaving blogland lately and some have just left without a word. I've been blogging almost 8 years and it's almost like keeping an online diary for me. If I can't remember when something happened the past 8 years, I can usually find it in a blog post. Truthfully, that is what keeps me blogging.
I don't blog to get X number of followers, although I will say that I love comments just like everyone else. I don't blog because I like to show my house or photos of my family. My house frankly isn't all that show-worthy and my family doesn't like for me to publish their photos.
I only blog once or twice a week and that is all I seem to be able to get done lately as there are so many other things I like to do, too. I've also said this before, but I am slow. When you get older, it takes twice as long (or even more) to get anything done.
And then I often have problems when typing a post, such as I had a paragraph written just below the half-opened sunflower. It just went "poof". I have no idea why and this is a fairly new laptop.
Hate to admit it, but I don't even remember what I had said so I can't rewrite it. The brain cells are getting older too, so the memory isn't what it used to be.
Our son came in for the weekend. BG and I had run to the Big Town Saturday morning so he could get a haircut and then we went by Lowes to buy a new leaf blower. I ran into Kohl's with my 30% off coupon and found a new pair of white capris and new tennis shoes for him.
When we got home, Brett was there and had brought some hamburger and brats for grilling. I made a pasta salad using the recipe I shared on a previous post just after the 4th and we also grilled some veggies.
Our weather has been much nicer the past few days and the nights are cool. It will probably heat back up as August is usually the hottest month here, but we're enjoying this cooler weather while we can.

I'm trying to work up the courage to repaint my walls, unless I can talk BG into letting me find someone else to do it. We'll see. I'm not counting on it.
The bigger problem is choosing the right shade of paint. I'm not quite sure what I want, but I'm thinking a creamy white. Not a stark white.
We have put off getting some new carpet for too long. That will hopefully happen after the painting is done. Our carpet is 20 years old and I will say that it's held up well for all these years but it's beginning to look it's age and more.
If you have a favorite white paint or a carpet style you just love, please share. I am always looking for suggestions as there is just so much to choose from in both paint and carpet that it's mind-boggling.
Off now to hit the publish button while I have a couple of hours of July left. :)
Happy Monday to you!
