Here we are already halfway through the Summer months. August 1st? how did you creep up so fast?
Does anyone else notice the older they get the faster time seems to fly by?
Remember growing up when School let out for the Summer, those two months vacation seemingly dragged on forever, wondering if the School Year was ever going to get started again ..... oh how I miss those days at times. Those were wonderful times without too many cares or worries in life, were they not?
I spent a good part of the morning dusting, vacuuming and washing floors, finally stopping around 11:30 am to begin thinking about our Dinner. I did manage to get a "huge" chunk accomplished.
I had pulled out the recipe for Cauliflower Casserole the day before, but when began preparations for making it I realized I had no milk in the fridge.

Rob left for his "Crabby Cabbie" work and I carried on with some cleaning.
With the foyer and livingroom floors still needing washed, I decided enough was enough, as my BFF had been on my mind quite a bit lately, so I said "no more" today. I called Colleen up and said I would be over for a little outing this afternoon.
We ended up driving down to Sauble Beach, as they live just on the edge on the main highway to the Beach, to the Dairy Queen for a treat and much chit chat. We had a great visit.
Before I wrap things up here, I would like to welcome the newest follower, Amanda of Crafty in the Med. Thanks for joining along, Amanda, I look forward to all your future comments.
Oopsies, as Aiden would say, it is 9:16 pm, and I still need to take all four of the "Checkerboard Aussies" in, out and about, before I can even think about calling it a night, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
