Summer Stress and Bitsy Breaks.....


Summer is always a bit doodliewonkers around here..with daycare summer kiddos, getting artwork ready for the fall market, the lure of taking pictures of the of everything blooming.

I seem to run out of time for all I really want to do. Like jumping in the lake, sitting in the sun with a good book and an iced coffee. Taking long afternoons up in the woods to wander, wild craft and catch bugs and minnows with my own children.


I really just want to get out and do a whole lot of nothing..how did it get to be almost the end of July??


Why am I already thinking about school clothes and supplies? Ackkkk I am so not ready for that..the new year of school. I need an extra month of summer please. I know as a Fall girl this may come as a shock...I need more summer this year..I really do. Given I know very few genies...and it is unlikely I will meet one...I am going to try to take some time in August to breathe...to do nothing at all but play and feel summer joy. So by the first week of September..I am not crying in my java that the summer has passed too quickly. Cause you all know how much this girl looooves the Fall! I want to feel excitement to see it arrive..not sadness that the summer passed too soon!



On my photo blog I will be joining Susannah of Unravelling...in a month long break for August...just a picture a day..no words...no rules..just pictures. I seriously thought about doing it on this one too..but I would miss you all too much ..so it will be there..nothing but a month of breathing and non stressing..I may even take a little time off here..just a little. Do you need a bitsy break...would you like to join us? Just click here to read all about it!!

I agree I'd like more of all those wonderful things.:) Summer here has been very stormy! I'd love more sun and fun at the lake.

Yes, the summer's going too fast! Wasn't it just Easter last week?

I think the year has just raced by Sarah. It goes too quick. And every year it seems just that bit quicker.

I feel like I am on a bitsy break, and loving it.

I would miss you too!

I'm really wanting to get out too but I also love to create! It's a hard decision each day and the creating seems to win out. I'm definately going for a long mountain drive soon!!!

"Doodliewonkers" is officially my new favorite word!

Enjoy your break Sarah-- I too and making a point of enjoying summer while it's here.

Of course I'm highly anticipating Halloween too-- Now that your fabulous package of artwork arrived at my door step. YEAH! I'm so glad I was able to add more of your work to my collection. THANK YOU!!!

I hope you enjoy your break, I can not believe how fast it is going. there just does not seem enough time in a day. The first photo looks heavenly to me. I could jump right in, it has been hot, hot, but I guess it is better than cold, cold. so I am not complaining. be well my friend and I hope you find more time for you every day. hugs.

Coming over from Joanna at the Fifty Factor! I love this blog. There is so much to see and do here!

I'm enjoying my break, but back to school means a long awaited paycheck for me, so I am counting the days!

Enjoy your time off. I look forward to your upcoming pictures!

I love spring and summer ,
and can't believe I'm already cutting back shrivelled up perennials and getting the older kids ready for U.

I look forward to the quiet and the routine of fall...
but still. I haven't even been to a lake or anything!
