A big check mark for August is finishing up my painting and refinishing on all my cabinets. I started in June and between motherhood, work, a cold and so much else it’s taken me a long time to finish. They are going from an old and yellow oak to crisp white that fits way better with my seaside local.
This might sound small but I am so looking forwards to swimming more this month. My son loves swimming and this is the first year he can swim without me holding on to him at every moment. It’s been three years since I last got to swim and now I can safely swim around my son and relax a bit.
Have you seen my blueberry video? If you have then you know I am so excited to be going blackberry picking this month. I readily admit that last winter was hard on both my son and I. We had moved from a very warm and sunny place to long nights and cold weather. One of the highlights for us was having a freezer full of berries we had picked in the summer to bake with and have fun eating.
A huge happy point in August for me is being done with editing my book. I am so excited about Milkosaurus coming out September 28th; it has been such an effort of love and a desire to share valuable information for all moms. Being finished with editing and writing my book frees up a bit of daylight to play with my son and explore our lovely area.
What are you most excited for in August?
