What a quick month August was....actually I was so busy with so many different things, it just flew by! It was a historic month for sure! At least for us Texas dwelling folks anyhow! # Hurricane Harvey!
I know I made some pages for birthdays etc and downloaded some new freebies, but...haven't had a chance to do much else. I had a friend that needed to be taken to doctor 4 days in a row and then she had her surgery 2 weeks ago and has needed some help. Then another friend had a minor day surgery, and another that took a vacation and needed plants watered. We've had a lot of rain (no, not from Harvey) so the yard and weeds and plants all needed some attention when it finally quit, then Harvey hit south Texas Coast...creating the worst havoc and flooding you have ever seen!
I am about 5-6 hours north of it, but...I do have family and friends that I was extremely worried about. So many have lost EVERYTHING they have, home, furniture, cars, belongings and yes, even some lost their lives! So far all my friends have been accounted for and the family had to be evacuated too! Still not sure if all is a total loss for them or not as they are still in a shelter in Alexandria, LA so that my sister in law can have dialysis. Just a few days before Harvey hit, she fell at Walmart and broke her arm in 2 places so she has really been through the wringer! Her daughter is a teacher at Beaumont, but class has been cancelled all this and next week (maybe longer) as the flooding caused no water to drink, and no electricity.
My renters had a problem with some water in their unit that took a few days to correct....now I have to find someone to re-tile the floor now that it is totally dry! I also had a cousin pass away and no one knew it until a posting by the coroner's office in South Carolina for someone to claim his remains. I also had a visitor come from Missouri for a few days!
OK, I'm tired now...no more complaining....I'm just happy to wake up each and every morning to be able to help others and to do my thing. I've also been in an anti-social mood of late as I have had my nose stuck in a book or two...LMBO! Anyhoo....all is well in my world and all the fur babies are too! We just be chillin' and doin' our thing! Hope all have a wonderful Labor Day and you stay dry, but make lots and lots and lots of memories to share! I will try chatting more next time instead of gripping so much! Here are the pages I've made since my last post and I have sooooooooo many photos I need to scrap so they will make it into my end of year blog book printing!
Alright, that's it, I must get up from this chair...my bum has gone to sleep and another book is calling to me! Have a great one y'all! Later, Mat
