August 2015

One month off in the summer really seems like a long time! I can’t wait to see everyone again this month. Summer is great but it goes by too fast. Why is it that you hear people say, “Summer has just flown by,” but you never hear anyone say, “This winter has really gone by fast”? Maybe it’s because there are so many things we like to do in the summer. I went to the Farmer’s Market in downtown Des Moines on the 4th of July. I hadn’t been there in years, and it’s much bigger than I remember. I didn’t buy anything; it was just fun to walk around and see what was going on.

The Iowa State Fair starts this week. I love going to the fair, and I’m sure I’ve only seen a small part of everything that goes on. I love all the food! I’m thankful I am only tempted once a year. One of the things I’m looking forward to is the chocolate chip cookies … and people watching.Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you see something that just makes you shake your head in disbelief. Then, it’s back to school time, and summer’s over. Time goes fast, so make sure you do all the things you planned before it’s too late. I hope you’ve all had a perfect summer, and I can’t wait to see you soon at our August 20th meeting. RSVP at
