August....

It is hard to believe that we are into the month of August!  The downhill slide to Christmas...OMG!  And on the way there are still Anniversaries, Birthdays, a Wedding!  It doesn't look like my year is going to get any quieter.  Which means these moments with G camping are so precious.  

I have to say when we made this plan a year ago I was excited but as the time grew closer I started having anxiety.  Over 3 weeks in one place with limited WiFi and on an island...what was I thinking!!!

What I have come to realize is that this camping interlude provided my brain with a much needed rest and my stitching has been invigorated!  I have made more progress on the WIPs than I have all year!  I am looking forward to making even more progress.  It made me realize that sometimes taking a break from the schedules in our lives actually make us more productive.

  2. Gorgeous spot. You inspire me to get a few projects prepped for our upcoming drive across the USA. Can't wait, but only three weeks to prepare (rolling eyes).

  4. Yikes, yes August is also when we start noticing the days being shorter. I can see how 3 weeks away from regular responsibilities would give you the time to be really productive. Good for you. Also a good test of Penny, eh?
