  1. We are thinking of going up to the finger lakes at the end of September. Not too far, but to see something different.

  2. September plans?.... Survive and hopefully find a rhythm to back to school and all the activities that the kids are in. :)

  3. Hahaha - what parent misses back to school shopping. While visiting ex-college girl, we stopped at Target? . . . and they had rows of supplies out. ECG said, "mom" - do you miss shopping for that stuff - pointing to the stuff . . .nope. And hopefully it hasn't gotten worse - some years I had to provide tissue paper, wipes (for cleaning) etc.

    Cheers!

  9. First plan for September is to finally finish painting the main floor living room once we have a cool weekend. My husband started it over two years ago and never finished! We don’t really notice it anymore unless people are over and ask about it. It’s pretty bad.

  10. For the first time in 7 years I have lots of time on my hands during the fall. No more high school marching band. Instead we will to only 2 HS football games, the fair, college football game (daughter still marches,) and lastly canning, canning and more canning.

  11. Oh, how I need a September vacation! Just starting to think that over and look at the calendar. Thanks! (caseowens1@gmail.com)

  12. I am looking forward to September, as that's when we make most of our beach trips (day trips). The school kids are gone by then and we usually have the beach almost to ourselves. I also need to get my house in order after having lots of grandkid visits this summer.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Another beautiful giveaway! I may take a little vacation in September- waiting to find out if a friend will be visiting then.

  14. Just noticing this week that it is getting darker before 9 pm. I found a leaf yesterday that had fallen that was beautiful colors-orange-yellow-brown....NOOOOO!!!! wanting summer to last a little longer as the garden hasn't produced well this year and I have not finished mulching yet! jgish@hughes.net

  15. September plans mostly consist of trying to get back into a routine with the school year starting back up. But we'll also be tackling some painting projects in the house!

  18. September is going to be very strange. My youngest is leaving for college next week. I am going to miss her so much.

  19. Grandson started his first year of high school on Monday. I am glad we on I have 3 more years of filling out school paperwork and writing checks for the "extras" required. He was happy to be back n school and see all is friends. We were happy to have him back in school because he was happy! Thanks for the Giveaway. Teddie

  20. Garden produce: we live in desert conditions. I started a couple of container gardens - while visiting ECG, my husband failed to water containers not watered by the sprinker - so, no results there. But my basil and rosemary potted with some flowers watered by the irrigation system are doing great. Also, I have 2 lemon trees producing fruit - maybe the lemons will be ready in a week or two? Moral of the story, don't count on the hubby to water anything consistently or at all.

  21. I'm so glad I no longer have kids in school! I still buy school stuff on sale and donate it to my local elementary school for kids that need it. We have a backpack program at school to help kids that need supplies and/or snacks to help get them through the year. I'm also in the process of planning a trip to Nova Scotia.

  22. I plan on finishing painting my kitchen in September. I have drug it out all summer, painting a little here and There. It's a small kitchen, I just rather read than paint lol

  23. We have no one going back to school. 3rd year of no tuition. Hooray for us!
    I am currently in a war with the muscadines (aka squirrel and chipmunk food)

  25. Enjoying summer by taking a walk in the beautiful weather!

  26. September plans.....well, still working outside, but in lovely cooler weather. I can’t wait, don’t like the humid heat of summer and it doesn’t like me. Except mornings and evenings, of course. Can’t complain about everything:-)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Many projects yet to get done. Slowly chipping away at them.

  28. September is a BIG month for us as son #1 is getting married so we will make a road trip to Houston and see many friends and family. Very excited. Teddie

    ReplyDelete
  29. I don’t really have a fall garden but I do have 2 tomato plants and I have managed not to kill them thus far! Looking forward to a September full of caprese salad and pico de gallo (hopefully)!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Project 2 is cleaning up the brush pile in the backyard. Something has made a home in there and I fear it’s a skunk. Daryl the dog was sprayed by one so we’re on de-skunking duty for now!

  31. September means James Dean weekend in this neck of the woods. Old car shows, old movies, and good times!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Projects: Use up scrap fabrics and make gypsy drapes for ECG/Guest room and also finish a quilt top and make a duvet cover? Anyway, ECG will come home for the holidays - so, I want to spruce up the room a bit and get rid of fabric/clothes we won't be needing.

    ReplyDelete
  33. September I have a trip back to my beautiful NC mountains. We are a having a celebration of life for my brother who died earlier this year. I will get to see my nephews, niece, and their families I haven't seen in several years. A sad but also happy trip.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Project remains de-skunking the dog and anything he’s touched. Nature’s Miracle, vinegar, baking soda, etc haven’t made a dent. I think new harness and collar are on the shopping list this weekend. 😒

    Jen G.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Our other big September plan is to adopt a dog. I'm a little nervous since we've been cat owners for so long, but I'm excited to have a walking buddy!

    ReplyDelete
  36. We are hoping to wrap up our condo redo next week. Last week we had 3 painters with us morning to late afternoon and this week we had floor installers with us all day. Next week is new countertops and sink. Every piece of furniture has been moved 4 times and everything hanging on walls has been moved around for 2 weeks. Hope to get it all put back together before we leave for Houston in September. Teddie

  37. Fall garden: kale for sure, what else?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am glad kids are all back in school. Not mine they are 39 and 41 - lol. I don't care much for school zones. But an necessary evil so no one gets run over. Our school zones are 15 miles and hour - some the whole school day and some just when the yellow school zone light is flashing. That is grade school through high school. One odd thing is there is a grade school on a busy road that has a 25 mile an hour school zone. We have never been able to figure out why it's not 15 like the rest of the schools. My husband said- Maybe those kids run faster or something. Just a little weird humor. Take care. Crystal Hankey - I believe I'm on your e-mail list.

  39. I would like to try a fall garden this year. I have never tried one before.

  40. I will be teaching my 7th grader this September and teaching a class at a local homeschool co-op. I will also be looking for some cooler days, but here in AL it really doesn't get cool until October and then it is hit or miss.

  41. Vacation plans for September? Hmmm, since I am retired, if I can find a good deal, I might take it. I have never been on a cruise and am thinking it might be nice to see Alaska while it is hot in the desert.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Still working on the skunk problem. Three more special baths for the dog this morning. His body is better but his face still reeks. I bought some baby wipes this morning to try cleaning closer to his eyes.

    Jen G.

  43. Looking forward to peaches in September. Our neighbors behind us have two peach trees and they will be ripe in Sept. We can pick as many as we want. My favorite is to peel and slice peaches and eat with vanilla bean ice cream. Oh so yummy! Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Our other September plan is to go to the county fair. Our kids are still too small to ride the rides but it's fun to look at all the animals and exhibits!

    ReplyDelete
  45. It’s very muggy in NJ today. Just relaxing right now after a yoga class...

    ReplyDelete
  46. The skunk spray now smells kind of like male cat spray so maybe it’s improving? Furniture is being cleaned with vinegar and then we’ll try some more Nature’s Miracle. No miracles here yet. 😒

    Taking a break from that mess and making more pasta salad. Artichoke hearts and sautéed tofu cubes are my secret ingredients.

    Jen G.

  47. Back to school on Tuesday! Trying to get everything ready!

    farmgirl33@ymail.com

    ReplyDelete
  48. We are still working on getting the condo back together. We had the painters leave in the big nails and screws so we could easily rehang large items on the walls. That is now done. But we still have all the small stuff to hang. Hint: take pictures of where you have hung stuff. You think you will remember, but I don't! Teddie

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hoping for some good ads / deals in the stores near Labor Day this year. This has not been the best summer for deals but I keep plugging away. Can't wait for fall weather. I am over summer after having to fix our swamp cooler on the roof twice in a month. At least it wasn't too expensive. Have a great day. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  50. New September goal: get busy training and loving on the dog we adopted from the animal shelter today!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Looking forward to fall weather and tidying up the yard for winter. I do it in small increments of time since I can't be out in the sun long. Then time to check over my pantry and clean / organize and start filling in the winter holes. Especially things like cold and flu meds and stuff I don't want to run out for if we are sick or the weather is bad. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Febreeze appears to be the miracle we’ve been searching for!! The dog still stinks but the furniture is fine now. Weekend project is now clearing out the brush pile. I have a funny feeling a skunk or two may be living in there.

    Jen G.

  53. Ugh! I got a summer sickness. I guess I'll be holding off on the house duties. Centrum Women's Vitamins would be helpful.

  55. Can't wait for fall apples... so yummy!

  56. We're building raised garden beds and it would be great to get those done before the weather gets bad!

  57. Did I tell you that the city threw away my box of goodies I won?

    ReplyDelete
  58. We need to do a few things to our cabin at the campgrounds before winter hits. The list of what I need to do is getting so overwhelming I may not get anything done!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yesterday the young man came out and measured for the new countertops. They are to install the countertops and backsplash on Friday. That will finish up the condo redo. So excited to get my kitchen back in order as right now as my dining room table is covered with kitchen stuff. Teddie

    ReplyDelete
  60. We’ve learned from a fellow skunk victim that the smell keeps returning for about two months. So I give up on cleaning the dog. It rained today and that seemed to reactivate the smell!

    Looking forward to fall when the skunks seem to disappear.

    Jen G.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I am guessing tomorrow we are cleaning up after the storm! Hope the weather is better where you are.

  62. Regarding produce to put away for winter, I just prepped about 20 lbs of apricots for the freezer. Phew. Hard work! But we'll be eating well this winter!

  63. I am going to queens to see my niece before she starts back at college.

  64. My kids are coming home in September! Now I couldn't get them all here on the same weekend but I will take them any way I can get them! At least 3 weekends of good fun in September!

    ReplyDelete
  65. My plans for the fall incude smores made on the fire and lots of carmel apples...from the fair and festivals happening around here. So I basically need this giveaway for the M&Ms.

  66. Wow. Can't believe we are almost to the end of August! Finally at 6 weeks of no crazy problems with my heart. New med working. Get to drive to close places now. Grocery store deals here I come! Stocking up on water and butter at great prices this week. Take care.

    ReplyDelete
  67. The condo is coming back together nicely. Every closet has been completely emptied and decluttered EXCEPT one. We saved the worst for last ~ the 3rd bathroom which is stuffed full of photo albums and pictures. We started today and I will stay busy through the fall sorting, discarding, and putting pictures in albums. Geeze too many pictures! Teddie

  68. Im busy cleaning for end of the summer company!

    ReplyDelete
  69. It’s time to make my yearly mass amount of pesto. I freeze it ice cube trays and transfer to a freezer bag. I didn’t grow basil this year so I’ll need to make a trip to the farmer’s market.

    Jen G.

    ReplyDelete
  70. We don't usually vacation in September but we're thinking of trying to squeeze in one last camping trip this year. Fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  71. We've lived at our current house for 20 years and it is time for an update. September could bring new paint, lighting and the repurposing of a now unused room into a real sewing room/office!!! I am excited. Hopefully the stars align and we can work on it over the long Labor Day weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  72. So looking forward to fall! It’s my favorite season.

  74. Need to start some decluttering of boxes of old papers in my office. 3 regular size boxes and one really large boxes. They have been following me around like a bad habit for far too long. This is the 2nd house they have been to. Almost 10 years. I am a total paper pack rat and what could possibly be good in there after 10 years? Of course I will go through them instead of just tossing. Don't expect any surprises like $ but who knows. I will dive in by starting a box today. If you don't hear from me alert the authorities as I may be buried under my paper clutter. lol.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I mentioned my sad tomato plants before (no green thumb here) but they actually have about; tomatoes on them!!! Hooray!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Cleaning out my bathroom should go on my project list. I almost have more dresses hanging over the shower door than I do in my closet. And I noticed my Halloween costume from two years ago is in that mess!

    Donating the prize to Practical Parsimony if I win.

    Jen G.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I belong to a csa and have 4 tomato plants, I am freezing as much as I can of tomatoes and eating a lot every day. Store tomatoes aren't real tomatoes. aerodog@zbzoom.net

    ReplyDelete
  78. I am a paper pack rat like Crystal above....I have been slowly decluttering for about a year and have made progress, but it’s really slow. I have to look at every single thing LOL and sometimes I still can’t throw it away. But that’s my project.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Now that it is cooling down we hope to enjoy our fire table on the deck!

    ReplyDelete
  80. For September, hopefully enjoying some cooler weather and I'd still love to get make it the beach this year.

    ReplyDelete
  81. The weather here is starting to cool off every so slightly so hopefully that will give me added incentive to do all the things that I need to do! Gotta make a list......

    ReplyDelete
  82. We finally have cooler weather and I’m wearing a long sleeve T-shirt. I burn in 5 minutes so this means I can skip most sunscreen! I also have the windows open so fresh air for the kitties.

  83. Hit the local Smith's store (Kroger Affiliate) today with husband. Butter for 1.99 ea. Picked up 5 and had 3 -.50 off coupons. Then got 32 count water for 2.50 ea. but had 3- .50 coupons. A few more good deals and back home in under 45 minutes. A little off today with dizziness and weakness but HAD to make these deals happen!

Hey there! Thanks for leaving a comment. Though I moderate it's partly to keep spam out but also partly so that I read every comment. I don't often respond to comments so if you need me to answer you please write me at my email addy posted on my "About Me" page, linked on the side bar.
