I can not believe that it is August! I am left wondering where the time has gone. August means a return to routine around here. Megan went back to school last Thursday.
Fifth grade! She returned to her small, Christian school and has the same teacher she had in third grade. She is a great teacher!
A new month means it is time to get things together.
Shopping for the month is almost complete. I will go out tomorrow to finish up. There were a few things the store was out of so I will go to another one. Now, don't judge the list! I keep a well stocked pantry so my shopping trips never look normal.
The monthly menu is also made.
I picked off the items for this weeks menu. I noticed that I am heavy on green beans as a side dish this week. I must have had a taste for them when I made the master menu.
Not to worry as I have a variety of veggies from the garden and in the pantry so I can mix and match.
The monthy budget is complete. We are still using Every Dollar and it is working well for us.
Summer caused us to loosen the financial reins. We will be tightening up the budget so we can continue to tackle what feels like never ending medical debt. I keep reminding myself we will get there.
The garden is still producing well. I need to pick green beans again and am picking tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchini almost daily.
It is once again hot and the rains have slowed down so we have started to water.
I packed up some empty jars to take over to my moms (for putting up tomatoes). If I think about all of the jars representing canned goods I would have purchased at the store this past year it makes it all worth it. Plus it just taste better!
I hope to get some projects complete. Some thirft side table need to be painted for my niece.
The storage in the garage also needs finished. The last shelf is in the works.
I am beyond ready to see things neat and organized in here.
Ready or not August is here.
May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
