September means....

We are back into the school routine..and already had a day off!!! This was our first Labor Day parade as a family, Bunny's band marched and played. It was still hot outside but fun, nonetheless. Of course, a Monday off only means Tuesday is really difficult! I'm still not on a real schedule...my body is thinking it is Wednesday!!!

Friday nights are for football!!! We didn't make it to last weeks game, it was 2 1/2hrs away and due to Bunny's foot injury she didn't march. DD1 has church friends that played each other in last Friday's game so she went to see that rivalry. Ya know what that means...we had a Friday evening to ourselves!!! We acted like 'normal' people and went to see a movie!!! We saw Hancock and I was not impressed! It was okay up until the plot twist, then they just lost my interest! Thankfully, it was at the cheap theater! It was fun, though, to be together, just the two of us!

Cooler mornings! Although a bit early this year thanks to Gustav! I will take it...we slept with the window open last night! I have the living room windows open right now! I know this afternoon, the air will come back on but I'm going to enjoy the cooler weather while I can!

This is for my Mom: I have a bit of sad news...Miss Persnickety is dead. We kept trying to revive her in her window, then hubs sat her out in the front and she has now fully wilted away.
For those of you wondering...Miss Persnickety was my first impatien plant. She was beautiful and showy but really picky about where she sat, how much water she got and who she liked! She lived with us for more than five years...I was amazed at that! I am not a green thumb...that would be my Momma, but the more Miss Persnickety grew, the more I desired to care for her. She was a gift from one of my students during a Teacher Appreciation week and sat in a pot that her class gave me.
I will miss her pink petals but I am pleased by the fact that she became such a part of our family...we all talked to her when we passed by the table! She is a reminder that God loves us all..even those of us that are persnickety!

Well, that is all I have for now..nothing earth shattering - thankfully! I pray y'all have a blessed day and are looking forward to the weekend ahead!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow...

God's girl, Pamela
