August Break #29


My ocd took over a bit today…
This is my tank top and long sock obsession drawer….
I’m not going to post a photo of my underwear drawer, but it is similarly organized…

August Break #18

We were going to go for a walk or bike ride tonight. But after my 12 mile ride to and from work, cleaning, laundry, and dinner, and his day at work, we found ourselves very content to just enjoy the peace and quiet. I turned my little lights on out on the deck and enjoyed them. Sometime soon they will be coming to paint our decks and I’ll have to take everything off for awhile. So for now it was nice to enjoy it. I need more sleep, but need more time to get applications done and sent in before deadlines hit. The usual running I have recently become very calm about. Not sure if that is good or not yet!

August Break day 18

I have been quite behind posting August Break photos here.

It is partly due to time, partly due to the fact that the instant photos I have been taking and intending to upload have not made me super happy.

But I did finish this during the month of August. I even printed it. I think it is the last new compilation piece for my show. So, I was thinking it would count for August Break. And perhaps make up for my lack of posts.



Sometimes when you are so frustrated you can’t think straight, when you are fed up and worn down and nothing can possibly go right anymore, sometimes you need to just get out of the house. Today it ended up what I needed most was to pedal faster than my mind could think. After a week that was so completely emotionally draining, having the ability to pedal as hard and as fast as I could, until my legs were screaming and my arms were pink from the wind, to be able to finally bring my physical exahistion up to where my mental and emotional exhaustion were was what I finally needed. (To give you an idea, we biked to my Grandpa’s house, helped him move some furniure, biked around Long Lake park and back home down Long Lake road, and we were still back home within an hour of leaving home in the first place.) Now I need to do my infusion and sleep. Tomorrow will be much better.
