Summer Fun in Photos & A Bonus Pep Talk

life rearranged

Since I upgraded from a flip-phone to an iPhone, I’ve had fun with the photo feature.

I think my phone takes better pictures than my camera.

I feel like I’ve been silent here for a long time.

It’s a strange feeling.

Although I’ve been posting quite regularly, I don’t think I’ve been saying much.

I suspect it’s the ebb and flow of blogging, a season of life.

We’re just enjoying our summer.

We’re taking each day as it comes without grand expectations or hopes raised too high.


Mostly, we’re just soaking up the sunshine.

Mother and Son

And each other.

  lazy summer days reading

 We’ve done lots of reading.

I’m surprised by how many books I’ve knocked off my summer reading list.

I’ve been enjoying them quite a bit.

Thank you public library for keeping providing us lots of good books.

This is my favorite ice-cream – Blueberry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt.

The River at Sunset

I can’t say I’ve seen many sunrises this summer, but the sunsets have been beautiful.

The only thing that’s throw me for a loop this summer is this….

bacon flavored dental floss

I mean, I love bacon as much as the next girl, but bacon flavored dental floss?

Um, yuck, I think.

If you’re not following along on Instagram, I hope you will.  Just click that little button.


If you’ve had your fill of photos and long for some words, I’m over at Fancy Little Things giving us all a pep talk.

I hope to see you there!

    Two things: 1. Oh how we miss Public libraries in America. Here in Portugal there is a 2 book minimum and it takes about 30 minutes for the kids’ books to be checked out AFTER they have chosen them. Everything is handwritten like in the 1970s.
    2. I don’t normally floss, but I might start if I could do it with a good bacon-y flavor in my mouth.
