Our summer this year was amazing. We had above average temperatures and no violent storms. We had lots of time with our family which we spent out on the lake, having campfires, and just generally hanging out.
Now the sun is rising later and setting earlier … there’s just no getting around it. That’s one of the first signs that things are changing. The leaves are looking tired and so are my flower pots.
I have to admit I’m a bit relieved to have some rain and cooler temps this morning and I plan to do some baking, something I haven’t done for weeks because of the heat.
And as far as blogging goes I feel like I’ve fallen off the grid and must now either step it up or … else …
So I pulled an image out of the archives this morning; something that has become a lot easier since I’ve been working on my LR organization. However, I was watching one of the videos for the 31 Days class and oh.my.heavens … my keywords are a disaster … oh my … but onwards and upwards!
Today I’m posting a creation and that’s what counts! I ran kk_lightandairy_film and then added one layer of kk_quiet on soft light.
Don’t forget “app” happy wednesday tomorrow! I hope to see you there!
This is lovely, Barb, and definitely hints of fall!
we’re still too hot and dry here to think about fall.

Oh, my not ready to think about fall yet but I am ready for the heat to let up. This morning is nice with the monsoon here and the cloud cover and the rain so I am really happy. My LR organization is a disaster also, funny I woke up thinking about that! Must make it right. Love the image and the flower pots. Your summer sure is a short one but then again my summer seems like a long one. Have a good day. :)

Absolutely lovely…your photos are always a breath of fresh air. Yes, I can tell that summer is slowly fading away…fall will be here before we know it. Have a wonderful day, Barb! :)

I dug a photo out of my library too for TT , Barb ! My keywords are non existent….where to start…..! I’m glad you had such a wonderful summer, I’m certainly ready for a bit of a cool down here in NC, but we have a few more weeks to go yet. Have a great day and enjoy your baking :)
Well, first of all, I have to say that your archival image is just lovely! Second, I have to say that I’ve been noticing the same thing: sun rising later, setting earlier, the change in the angles of the sun. Third … I had to laugh out loud! The LR31 pointed out the same thing to me: my keywords are a disaster! Since I took a mini-break off the grid, I used the time to begin tidying them up. I’m not completely done but almost there. It feels good … kind of like cleaning out the fridge.
How funny that you were happy with above average temps! We have had below average temps and that has made me very happy! But then again, here in Virginia, I’m sure our average temps are closer to your above average. Maybe?
I hear you on the blog thing. Time to turn full press onto the media and get it running. : ) See you tomorrow!!

No ! not yet, although the nights are getting chillier here :( I think we are all suffering from blog overload I know I am !!
So nice you enjoyed a wonderful summer, Barb !
Lately we have a lot of rain and high wind … and cold too … hoping for some warmer sunny days :-)
Lovely photo … the sedum in our garden has started coloring ..
Have a nice week,
So pretty – I love the rustic pots and that white pumpkin – lovely layout. I’m glad that you’ve enjoyed your summer – so fun to create memories with family. Have fun baking! See you tomorrow.

So glad you have had a wonderful summer. I think we have all been dragging a little on the blogging scene, but now that the season is about to turn, I think I will get back to more regular time at the computer. Fall is one of my fav times of the year for photography because of all the brilliant colors. Hope to see you sometime in 2015. We need to coordinate our trips to Phoenix, such fun!!
we still have a fair bit more summer to go, but i too have noticed the every so slowly, shortening of the days. i took a bit of an extended break from my blog recently, and although it was a little scary to be gone away for so long, it was actually a wonderful way to recharge my creativity. happy to see you here on texture tuesday (i just dipped my toe back here today for the first time in a while). xo

I love your post and some days…thank goodness for archives…such a beautiful pot of flowers…you make everything look good..
Love the vases and your flowers. So true on the signs of weather changing. My flowers are looking down, but I admit it’s because by this time of year I do neglect them. :)
