Monthly TUSAL update

Well another month has gone by. Is it almost Sept. I can't believe it. This is my entry into this months TUSAL. Floss from a couple of exchanges and birthday gifts and anniversary gifts. I am working on a PIF at the moment so can't say much. I have joined a Just Nan RR and am looking forward to that. I also have a Harvest Theme for my exchange group. Need to get going on this months Christmas ornament. Didn't finish July's' yet. OMG. The fires near by have done havoc to my lungs. I am needing my inhaler more and my head is clogged. Luckily the fire is almost totally contained and should be winding down. Just another summer in Central California. For the most part the weather has been relatively mild. We need to be thankful for that. We will probably get hit with really hot weather in late Sept and in Oct. Indian summer don't you know.
