It is hard to believe this is the last week of August. I was looking at my planner for September and it is already pretty full.
We will celebrate our 43rd wedding anniversary on the 4th. We usually go out for dinner and we treat ourselves to a week at the beach for the third weekend of the month. One of my best friends from childhood, Linda, celebrates her birthday on the 10th. I believe we have sent each other birthday cards for about 40 plus years now.
The much awaited Downton Abbey movie premieres in September. You can bet I will be standing in line to see it when it comes out!
After living in our house for ten years, our floors need some attention. We went to our go to flooring store, Elite Flooring, to check out what is available. We decided to go with the dense porcelain tile from Shaw Manufacturing that looks like hardwood without all the hassle of hardwood. Our color is Petrified Hickory. We are having the flooring installer take up the old flooring and move the furniture but still we have to remove everything from the table tops etc. We asked if we could do it after we returned from the beach. The saleslady assured us this would be our last floor. She was talking about the durability of the product but I had to chuckle, Yes this probably will be our last floor. So our downstairs flooring will be replaced but we are leaving the carpet on the back stairs and in the man cave. Eventually that will be changed out but I think we will go with a durable carpet to cut down on the noise factor. Home maintenance is an ongoing process.
September brings more soccer games for Landon. He will play this Saturday and afterward he and Grandpa are going to be heading to the Decatur Harbor on the Tennessee River to see a WW2 Landing Craft Boat that will be moored there for several days. Grandpa has seen this boat when it was here about five years ago but Landon who is very interested in WW2 has not. They are going to have lunch and make a day of it. And memories made with grandparents will be with the grands for the rest of their lives.
Next Sunday, September 1st, we will go and visit the Hoover Grimmlins. Elliott has settled into school but he is still Elliott. The other day he told his teacher that his daddy set his hair on fire and died. I am thankful that he has a seasoned teacher and I hope she can calm that little man down a bit
Off for breakfast with my friend, Deborah. Have a blessed day friends.
