The high temperatures of the summer months seem to be a thing of the past. It’s much more pleasant outside than it has been for a long time. The windows are open, the birds are chirping, the locust are singing. And the hostas are blooming beautifully. These particular ones are ‘Invincible.’ They have glossy green leaves and late blooming flowers.

This week, DD comes home after two straight weeks of camp. I’m expecting a tired girl and lots of laundry. I’m also in the middle of Christmas planning. My favorite! There is still time to join us on the Christmas Notebook list, where I teach all about Christmas prep. Membership is open until the end of August.

We have a lot of adjustments coming our way. We found out this week that our younger son and his wife are moving from Illinois to Seattle, WA, in September. They have been living nearby for a long time and we are going to MISS them! This weekend, though, we had more big news. Our older son and his family are moving from North Carolina to Illinois in September! They will live a mere twelve miles away! Grands galore! We are so excited for everyone…new jobs, moving, life’s adjustments…can’t wait till I can see grands whenever I want. And grammies want a lot, you know. 🙂

Here’s the menu for the week. Getting hungry for some stir fry.
