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!!
