August Calendar Ends & September Begins

Well August has ended and with a surprise!
The nigh of the 30th I went to cover up Tesula
our cockateil  who everyone thought was a boy...
and there SHE was in the bottom of the cage
making strange noises... when out came an egg.
So I spent a few hours making a nest for her and 
reading up on google "what was going on!"
So that is my excuse for not quite finishing my
September calendar. But here is what I have 
done so far.
I need to add the finishing touches... but have
to finish up some journals first. I shall return.

You had a lot more sun in August than we did here! A very Autumn feel to your September pages.

I really enjoy your pages each month. I like your sunny pages but mine would ALL be sun if I did that, I'm afraid. I like how you have started your Sept. pages. They have a real autumn feel about them.

Love the autumn scene in the margin.

I love this time of the month seeing your completed calendar and new one. Both are terrific. We had a similar surprise with our cockatiel who we thought was a boy and started laying eggs. :-) Luckily it's name was 'Sam'.

So weird to be thinking about Autumn while we are heading into Spring here in NZ. Great scarecrow :-)

Catherine said...

Your llittle calendar squares are works of art! amazing! And very funny about Tesula - any chance it could turn into a baby cockatiel?!

Thanks for commenting on my calendar. I think your notice went to my spam box. Will have to fix that. I notice you have a scarecrow on September. Very cute. I think you will be surprised when you see my October calender (Yes, it's done already...nothing better to do.) But you will have to wait until October 1. :-)
I love how you showed the weather each day in August.
Have fun filling in September.

Beautiful calendar work and your new journals are divine!! I do want to hear the "rest of the story" about your cockateil!! How exciting! But poor thing I bet that she is confused!!!!
Happy fall to you Sharon!!
