The August Break/Day 17/Bookshelf

Don't even get me started on books. They've been my closest friends since I was a child. My favorites were The Nancy Drew Series, Little Women & The Five Little Peppers & how they grew - a set my mother gifted me on my 8th birthday.

As you can see, my books aren't arranged in any particular fashion. (These are just 'a few' books in my bedroom - we won't approach downstairs - lol!)

I love books about slavery, love stories, folks trying to find their way, over-coming obstacles, but mostly books about God. They comfort me in such a way that I can't have too many.

Next to my bed, I keep Jesus Calling, the Bible & an assortment of this 'n that. I've been known to jump from book to book.

Treasures, indeed :-)

The August Break/Day 8


I am in no way fond of pictures of myself. I used to love to be in front of the camera, but since I've gotten older, I'm not a big fan.

Todays August Break word prompt is "selfie"

sel·fie
ˈselfē/
noun
informal
noun: selfie; plural noun: selfies; noun: selfy
  1. a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website.
    "occasional selfies are acceptable, but posting a new picture of yourself everyday isn't necessary"

Taken by a friend last year. I look pensive, don't I? :-)

August Break/Day 3


All you need is a little ledge

Posted in the window
Excuse me for tracing back a few days; I really want to be true to this assignment.

Happenings upon a stroll downtown

"Dress No Evil" shop that I didn't know existed. "Look Good/Do Good"

The August Break/Day 7


Day Seven word prompt: "Today is..."

So far, today is peaceful @ the lake. One of my most favorite early morning spots on earth.

The August Break/Day 6



The August Break, day 6's word prompt for the day: "reflection."

This was a daily path I drove to and from work a couple of years ago. :-) Very reflective, indeed, eh?

The August Break/Day 5


The August Break prompt: "three"

Oh, how I love summertime; shooting all the various flowers that God blesses us with is surely a treat for the eyes. I'm not limited to my own surroundings - oh, no!! I'm the person who knocks on a door & says:

"Hello, I live here in the neighborhood & I shoot pictures all around the city; would you mind if got a shot of your ___________ in your front yard?" (fill in the blank).

And believe it or not, the answer is always "yes - of course."

It's the little things in life, isn't it :-)

"The August Break, 2014" (Day 4)


I stumbled upon this idea for writing @ the suggestion of Grace of Red Barn Studios.


Today's (08/04//14) prompt is "orange." Seriously, have you ever NOT been happy when you saw the color orange?

It's a color that DEMANDS joy.


I try to give it all the attention I can. :-) Feel free to join in on the daily challenge if you will. I can't say I'll make it everyday, but it'll def. give some ideas on being in the moment.

Mid-Summer



This has been how I've spent the majority of my summer days. Just when I'm dragging about getting there; once I'm there - it's pretty amazing. Especially with these great summer evenings.

Another lesson on learning to be in the moment.

Hello December

Photo by: me Well, hello last month of this year. Seems when we were kids time dragged on eternally. As an adult, you revolve around pay...
