August is gonna be a long month for me. I’m still in the midst of a Paris hangover – both emotional and financial – and my next break isn’t going to be until mid-September. And just to make things even more fun, two of my co-workers are going to be taking all of their vacations in August and so I’ll be doing a lot of their work covering for them.
But it’s still summer and there are still things I can enjoy if I make myself look for them. And that’s why I signed up for the August Break challenge- the blogger Susannah Conway challenges people to just take one picture each day through the whole month of August. Photography as a hobby is something I’ve been meaning to get back into anyway, so…I’m in.
The suggestion for today was “morning light” – and currently, morning light is exactly what wakes me up, since the blinds on one of my bedroom windows fell down a couple days ago and I haven’t had the means to fix them yet. However – that window also does make a good home for my lemon verbena, which is growing like mad (I bought that only two months ago and it was about a third the size you see it now).
