The August Break 2011

After some thoughtful consideration, I've decided to take part in:


It seems to me, to be just too good an opportunity to let slip through my fingers.

The scoop?
You simply share one photo (or more!) per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day. Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, film or digital – with or without words – anything goes! – for the whole of August. No pressure – just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular blogging.
To join in, visit here.

Summer is passing by too quickly and I want more time to take more photos, enjoy my garden,
play more games with the twins, and just maybe get that chicken coop finished!

And if I'm really lucky, I'll get some more kite flying in too. 
Watch out for flying turtles over your house!

Oh!

Did I mention I've made a decision about this?

I have.

As if I didn't have enough to do.

~~~~~~
 Do you get the feeling I'm going to have a hard time keeping quiet for a month?
Good, me too.

i totally got that impression! ha! i do hope you can get some stuff on your to-do list finished, but more importantly, spend more fun time with your kids and hubby.

Your texture tuesday image is really lovely -- The bee is a perfect addition! I think it's too bad that we need challenges such as the August Break to take time to just live our lives... but I know how easy it is to let blogging (which should be a simple extension of daily experience) become a reason for being in itself! Good luck!

Is this a dahlia? It's the wonderful yellow color that made me think so, but I don't really know dahlias...except that my niece planted small yellow ones in a basket with pale blue lobelia for me. Your image is so beautiful.
