July was not the month I expected it to be. What a whirlwind month. We celebrated the Fourth of July with a cookout at my brother and sister-in-law's new house. What fun! I went to lunch with my friends Carol and Donna. And then there was the big car crash. I thank God no one was hurt but our car was a total loss. I loved that car so much. And it has been a big job to get all the insurance taken care of and get a new car. But as of next week all will be done. I will be so glad when I hand over that last check.
My sister lost her sweet dog Cody this month also. He was the best dog ever, She had him for many years and is lost without him. Many tears have been shed over his loss and not just from my sister.
Our washer also broke this month. We had to go out and buy a new washer and dryer. The guys who delivered it were not happy that the doorways in the house were so small. And when they tried to take the door off it wouldn't move. The house is 100 years old and the door has been in place almost that long. So after having the appliances delivered ($), having to have new plumbing put in ($), and having to get some new electrical work done to accommodate them ($), we are finally up and running. More electrical work to be done this month. Or next. But hopefully this month. I just want it all finished.
I did get to visit the farm. I haven't been there in a long time. And one night Joe and I went to dinner at IHOP.
Best news was that we got a beautiful new car that is way better than anything I ever thought I could afford. I took the new car to Lancaster County where my sister and I went to celebrate her birthday last week.
That's the month in a nutshell. I wonder what August will bring.
I am still working on my temperature afghan. Here's July's section.
You can tell it was hot. The yellow days here and there are the 70 degree days. The pink are the 80 degree days and the red are the 90 degree days. I never realized how hot Philly gets in the summer.
It is now so large that I can't show you the entire afghan. But here is a huge part of it.
Only a few July @ 9 p.m. photos. I'll try to be better about it in August.
And so that's it for this month. Hello August!
