Blog post # 603 – Cause to celebrate?

Yes, but . . .

End of June

End of July

Ready to acknowledge waning of summer

August break – Nothing planned – Cause to celebrate?

Yes, but . . .

Rainy day

Computer log in would not cooperate

Tasks to complete

Deadline met – Cause to celebrate?

Yes, but . . .

Plans made

Flight, hotel, and rental car,

One phone message

All plans scrapped – Cause to celebrate?

Yes, grandson # 2 is home with 2 parents, 1 Big Brother, 2 pups and 2 grandmothers!
