While everyone else was watching the eclipse, suffering through Harvey, fighting floods and looking forward to cooler temps in September, we were just hot! Trying to stay cool, hydrated, and keep our gardens alive. We are still hot and thinking about November when it will finally cool down and the leaves will fall. That is life in southern California.
I predicted I would read fewer books in August because of some long ones on the list, but I didn't even get that right. I read 11 which is only two less than my fabulous July accomplishment. Sometimes it is good to be wrong!
