July is racing on by isn't it? It hit me Monday morning that this is the last week of July and August and school starting is right around the corner. I still have so many things I want to get done before school starts again. I have been in high gear ever since. Next week will be deep house cleaning, windows, blinds, fans, and every thing that can be washed cleaned or straightened. My railings and porches are so dirty and dusty. We aren't supposed to wash sidewalks or driveways. Next week though, too bad. I am washing the outside of the house.
I have been working on my summer rug. I have loved working on this rug so much.

Yesterday, I got out books for the home schooling Moms. Three of the boys will be in third grade. Two of them will be in first. There will be a kindygardener. :) She told me that the other day. Of course, the youngest ones will have to be in school too. There is something exciting about getting ready for school. I can't wait to walk down the back to school aisles. There is something special about new pencils, crayons, and reams of paper. I always want to buy new pens and notebooks. Do you? I always think the most romantic speech is in the movie with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks " You've Got Mail."
" Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils..." I love that scene with Meg Ryan is walking to the prettiest bookstore in the world with a pumpkin in her arms.
I hope you have a lovely rest of the week. Thank you so much for stopping by today.
