We have lots of family events to celebrate in August.
First one of come up is my eldest daughter's wedding anniversary. She married her high school sweetheart who was going into the Army right away. (As it turned out, the Army discharged him honorable after discovering all his old motorcycle racing injuries.) They were married in the chapel on the Seabee base (Hubby was still active in the Seabees). Daughter made her wedding dress and some of the bridesmaids dresses. We had the reception in our family room and backyard and I prepared all the food. (Something I went on to do for all of my kids' weddings.)
Next is the daughter's birthday. She is now a grandmother of five. (Can't believe it.)
My granddaughter's hubby celebrated his 27th birhday a few days ago by going to the river (just up the hill where there's a natural water slide) with his family to play, then back to our house for dinner and cake.
Next up is that granddaughter's youngest turning one. The party was in the grands' backyard--and yes, we went.
My birthday is this month too. No, I'm not going to tell you which one--I have trouble remembering which it is anyway. Don't have anything special planned--they come around too quickly.
I'm also going to have the birth of a new book at the end of the month.
Not as it Seems is the latest in the Deputy Tempe Crabtree series. It's set on the Central Coast of California--Morro Bay, Los Osos, San Luis Obispo, Pismo, Nipomo, Tempe and her husband have gone to celebrat their son Blair's wedding. Yes, there is a murder, and spirits, or course. It wouldn't be a Tempe Crabtree mystery if spirits didn't make an appearance.
