August is fleeting. Do you feel that familiar sense of August urgency again? As another summer winds down, you might suddenly realize you didn’t get as much done this summer as you planned, right? Or maybe that’s just me, ‘cuz I sure didn’t. It’s back to school time, days are getting shorter, the Halloween stuff is back in the stores and so on. For me, August also means it’s time to take my annual blogging break. In August I take a couple weeks off from the blogging end of things anyway to do some reflecting, some goal setting, some writing, some reading, and hopefully some relaxing too.
This summer was another summer that wasn’t for me. Early May was when things started going badly for my dad health-wise and as many of you know, he died in late July. Summer this year has been a blur of busyness and emotional chaos. There has been joy and there has been deep sorrow.
During my break this year, the heavy work of grieving continues.
The joy of living continues as well.
Until later, friends…
How did your summer go?
If you’re a blogger, or a blog reader, do you take blogging or blog reading breaks?
Thought I’d share my little backyard oasis with you…I love it. Do you have an “oasis” of some sort?
