what to do with August

Here's the thing: after ten days of blog silence and countless stops and starts in writing, I've figured it out: I hate August.  Hate it.  There is a long drawn-out yuck to August that marinates my muscles until I can't move without feeling an August squish.  And it's gross.  Gross, I tell you.

I am sorry to all of you perfectly lovely people who celebrate a birthday in August, or (shockingly) profess to love this late-summer season of languor.  I wish I could join in the love, but I'm done being fake about it - I can't love this month, I don't love this month, and I'd like to be done with this month as soon as possible.

To that end, in the next week I am going to tick off the things that I do have to look forward to, once the drawn-out dog-days of AUGUST are behind me.  You know what this means?  NEW CREAMERY CONTENT.  I know, you're shocked.  And dubious.  Maybe even dubiously shocked, because this is coming from Whimsy, and Whimsy has been on the absent end of blogging lately.

We'll see.  This is my call to fall, my love letter to the coolish days of autumn that hold promise even on the very beginning fringes of September (first of my beloved 'Bers).  I don't think I could let the 'Bers down by not celebrating their very existence with little blog entries.

Tell me: what things do you want to hear from me?  Any special requests?  I'm open for requests, even in the lanky lunk of August.  Would you like to hear about upcoming sewing projects (I have some planned)?  Or how we celebrate September?  Or our favorite recipe for pumpkin bread?  Let me know, I'll see what I can do.

And because I'd hate to not give August one very well-deserved thank you: this terrible, no-good, uck of a month did give us this: a new job for my beloved Chip.  And job that will have him working LOCALLY, as in, home every evening and in bed snuggling with his very lucky wife.  Every night.  We couldn't be happier or more excited.  Thank you so much for all of your well-wishes and prayers, we felt the support and feel abundantly blessed.

Yay! Yay! Yay! For a new job! AND for being at HOME! I'm so happy for you all!

Yay for Chip at home and a job! Another cookie recipe for the 'bers would be great. The yummy susan cookies are associated with a new schoolyear for us (yeah, the annual tradition that started last year).

Personally, I don't want to hear how awesome your 'Bers are because here in Texas, we will still be languishing in 90+ degree weather. #suckit

wow, that was lucky how quickly he found a job! I know so many people who are looking still, including my brother who is supposed to be getting married in a few months.
I just realized I don't really like August much either, though here in SD I don't look forward to Sept and Oct as much as I always used to. Mostly because it doesn't mean colorful leaves or beautiful just means the grass is all yellow.
