Things I Learned in August


Another month passed. It’s September. Wow!

What’d you learn in August? Funny things, little things and the meaningful. I’m joining Emily Freeman at Chatting at the Sky to share what I learned. Won’t you join us?

Some things I learned in August…

1. I like figs. I’ll be honest, the name made me think they wouldn’t taste good. And fig preserves sounded even worse… Well, I picked one from a tree this week. Now I’m a fan! Still not sure about preserves though.

2. I experienced a new mode of transportation – cargo van. It’s the feel of a suburban, minus every ounce of luxury.

3. A mouse’s favorite food is peanut butter. Don’t ask me how I know this. I shiver just thinking about it.

4. Visiting the lovely state of Mississippi for the first time, I learned that Elvis was born in Tupelo.

5. While men conquer miles, women see them as opportunities to spend time with their husbands.

6. All 3 of our children are risk-takers, willing to step out in faith. I admire them a.lot.

7. Unexpected reconnections with old friends are timely blessings from our Lord.

… How about you? What did you learn in August?

  1. Hi Elizabeth!
    Yes, I remember! I hope your appt went well, that you were encouraged.
    …m&m’s, that’s funny. LOVE the waiting comment. That’s so true. I need to remember that in this season of life. Thanks so much for visiting here.


  2. Hi, Teresa! It’s Elizabeth…I met you just before we went into our respective publisher meetings at She Speaks. I’m just now checking out your blog. So glad I did! #3 makes me LOL…peanut M&Ms work, too. Wish I DIDN’T know that!! Oh, and what I learned in August – waiting with a companion is always better than waiting alone.


  3. shivering with you over #3 – glad you did not provide more details to haunt my imagination! 🙂 I’m not a big fan of figs, but my husband and sons LOVE them. we’ve never tried fresh ones, though–I found out recently that there’s a farm near us that grows them, so this reminds me to check into that now that they’re in season and try to surprise my husband!

    here via chatting at the sky – great list 🙂
