I was reading a post by Nichole where she referred to August as "her February".
As a southern girl (did I really just type that?) I can say "Goodness is she ever right". I know my midwestern pals are going to get a good laugh at that analogy, but seriously guys, it is as hot here as it is cold there. We've got cabin fever and the sniffles from too much central air breathing. We try to get out at night and walk the bike trail, but one can only suffer so many mosquito bites and friendly water snakes in the dark. Ack! Did I mention the over friendly cicada bugs that are the size of birds? It's a jungle out there…..
In the last 4 days my little two have simultaneously had awful cold & fever symptoms, in AUGUST???? Who knew….. the kitchen rations were down to nothing….. my teenager claimed to be wasting away….. (haha Sam)
Monday night, we had oatmeal for dinner. The eldest told his dad "We're having oatmeal for dinner, but we're eating it dry because we're out of water too." Teenage humor…. I love it!
But today? Today is better. The fridge is full. The sick ones have but a slight sniffle left…. so, I think it's safe to say we're good…. perhaps I should find some wood to knock on.
On a completely different note, you really should check out the autumn edition of Rhythm of Home. Those hard working mamas have put together another amazing and beautiful edition of inspiring goodness. There are several fabulous giveaways on the ROTH blog (including one of my own Tenderfoot Bags).
You can find a story about our Sugar Sprite Tradition in the celebration section of the Autumn ROTH edition. Heather was generous enough to provide the photography for this piece. (Thanks Heather!)

I have an appointment with a hot cup of tea and the Autumn ROTH this evening…… I can't wait 🙂
