I have a busy month planned for myself. First up is “Sparkles” with Jamie Ridler. I have been following Jamie now for a few years and the last month-long thing I did with her was the Kickin-It Old School Blog-a-thon a few years ago. What great fun it was. This time it is “Sparkles” which theoretically should take only five minutes a day. Today’s prompt was: “Say cheese!” I am not really fond of taking pictures of myself, but this is me, today, beginning this Sparkle:
It is taken in our living room. I am watching a movie with Bill. It is a Saturday morning and although I have work to do, I decided to start that later and watch the movie. I’m glad I did.
You can join the Sparkles group too, just click on the link above. Your registration will help with her rescue of three little kittens. That’s a cute story in itself!
The second thing I am participating in this month is August Break with Susannah Conway. I did the April Love Challenge with her this year and used Flickr for the first time. This month we are going to take a picture a day. That doesn’t seem too difficult either. Her prompt for today was “Breakfast.” I could have cheated and used the same picture for both because coffee is the first thing I have every morning but I didn’t think that was fair. So:
This is a scramble of egg beaters, bacon bits, spinach and cheese with a low cal english muffin. Trying to follow Hungry Girl again. So easy a plan, I just need to continue to commit.
So, that’s what my Amazing (hopefully) August is going to be filled with. I am also finishing the last few weeks of the Inner Excavate-Along, although to be truthful, I am not able to do every prompt each week. That’s okay though because the book is filled with such goodness that I will have fun working through it several times!
I hope you will come along with me this month. Should be some exciting things happening! We also have 3 more concerts at the Mountain Winery, Rachel goes back to college on the 22nd and Bill should have his back surgery as well. Wow!
