Finally.....Summertime.

In July and August, gardening slows down for me. Ever since I let my need for perfection go, I no longer race around in the heat making sure everything is in order. Chores still get done but more slowly now. It is a much more relaxing way to garden.

I am taking the summer off work and plan to spend more time with my son at the beach. I am going to read more and get my house organized. We have a bunch of small trips planned and a garden pergola project to do.

I am patiently waiting for my holga and lensbaby to arrive in the mail. I thought they would be something fun to play with this summer. I will be posting sporadically and checking my favorite blogs when I get the chance. I hope everyone has a great summer! Or winter for you folks on the otherside. Posted by Picasa

Enjoy your time in the sun with family...no vacation for me until later in August when I hit the wilderness.

Hope you have a great holiday! Looking back, I realize the summers spent with my daughter went too quickly.

Be sure to take lots of photos!

Hi Sandy!

Thanks for visiting my site. Keep taking your great photos. Now that the heatwave has broken, maybe we can enjoy some moderate sunshine, eh?

I still hope you post some photos once in the while-a nice beach sunset perhaps?
I'm with you, I just can't go overboard in the heat with gardening and the insects nipping at my heels. Relax and enjoy!

It is nice to have time off to enjoy your family. Most people don't make that a priority which is very sad. Have lots of fun and don't forget the sunscreen!

Don't forget the sunblock while you are at the beach!
