Do you believe it...
August is here already!!!
We got such a late start on summer that we are savoring every moment that we can get on the water.
With Paul's busy work schedule, I've used my board more then we've used the boat this summer.
But don't worry... we've been making up for lost boat time.
We're so lucky to live so close to the Chesapeake.
With all of these hot days we've been having, the bay feels like warm bath water.
It's almost too warm.
Since there were storms in the area I spent today inside catching up on some much needed house cleaning. The dining room was feeling a little stale..
Of course, this new anchor pillow helped inspire me to freshen things up.
I took a few things out of the room, moved the little bench against the wall and set my sunflower dishes on display.
Along with some shampooed carpet, freshly painted baseboards and dusted furniture..
Ahhhhh. It feels so much better!
Handsome Harry approves.
Sometimes stormy weekends are good.
I actually got caught up on a lot.
Plus, as I celebrate 2 full weeks as a non smoker.. I still need to keep myself busy.
as I chew the shit out of nicotine gum.
Along with the dining room, the kitchen has been scrubbed and waxed.
Brownies with candy coated sunflower seeds on top.
I figured, may as well... since I was going with the sunflower theme.
But if I keep baking things like this..
I'm definitely going to require more paddle boarding days.
While I was pulling up the photos for this post I found an older kitchen photo from 2009.
I have to share it.
Just look at the difference between then and now.
I love looking back on old decorating pictures.
however, most times when I see them I say,
What in the heck was I thinking!!!!
Darla and I wish everyone a safe and happy August!
See you soon!
