1. Is it just me, or did August go by in the blink of an eye? I know time moves faster as you get older, but that month seemed particularly fast. Maybe it’s just that there has been so much going on. Because there has been so much going on! I am hoping that September sees things slowing down a little, because I’m having trouble getting everything, or even some of the things, done. But it’s good too. As this happens, I am finding that I my priorities are shifting and I can focus more of the fewer things that are genuinely important and let go of things that are only marginally important. Focus is good.

2. Yesterday we got out of the house (imagine that!) and saw an exhibit about Stonehenge. It was really interesting, and it was fun to spend time with friends Doug and Heather there and at one of our favorite Kansas City restaurants Pot Pie. It was a fun, relaxing evening with interesting company (by that I mean Heather) and exceptional food (and by that I mean pot pie).

3. Birthday coupons. My birthday is coming up, and local restaurants are already stepping up to offer me more free food than I will be able to eat. That makes me very happy!
