Happy August!!!

I'm so happy August is finally here, which means that Summer is almost OVAR!!!!

So in honor of what should be a major national holiday -- Auggie Day, anyone??? -- I will present you with a rare and much sought after sight: a portrait in which I am *gasp* SMILING!!!

I know, I know. Dogs and cats, living together! And all that jazz. But yes, this is me happy. Because ... just cuz, you know?

Also, I was practicing with my camera again. That, too. This one is a very fancy selfie. I propped my Canon T5i "Rebel" up on a stack of books, pointed it dead at my ugly mug, and set the timer to a 2-sec shutter release, and then --- let loose them pearly whites!!!

But, uh, yeah. Back to the occasion of it all. These dreadful heat-ray days are almost over. True, the worst is probably yet to come in the month ahead, but at least we're making progress toward my favorite two seasons: Fall and Winter (is coming). And so I'm smiling today. You should, too.

That is all.


  1. Happiness is rare and precious. Probably best not to over-analyze it, just enjoy it.

    I'm happy that summer is still here, though I'd probably sing a different tune if I was surrounded by a big city. For me it's a time for practically living out of doors. I think there's something to celebrate in each season, and without the heat of summer how can you appreciate winter?

  2. That's right: best not to analyze it too much.

    And, yes, summertime is only a chore when you live in a big, crowded city. As such, it's no wonder I long for those colder weather months when the majority of people stay indoors, and walking the streets is greatly more pleasurable. :)
