August Pleasures

383. second round of baby birds (the first, of course, was in the spring), squeezed tight in their little nest waiting for dinner to be delivered, clamoring in high pitched baby voices when it comes.

384. my birthday... all month! Claiming every celebration as my own!

385. basil and mint growing friendly together

386. hearing fireworks, from somewhere, celebrating something. I don't even know what... but isn't it fun to know someone, somewhere is celebrating?

387. Sunday night, family watching a movie all together

388. Hot temperatures calming down. Opening up my house to feel breezes again.

389. cicadas singing loud hot songs on long hot days

390. planning a party! for a beloved son who has earned it.

391. being proud of my kids in a mom sort of way, not proud of myself, but thrilled at the good qualities I see growing in them. I like these kids of mine!


  1. August must be your favorite month, then? One last "Hurrah!" before Summer season ends. And school begins.

    The older I get, the more I value these warm months, myself, even if they get a tad or more too warm!

  2. August! I am just sitting here catching up on my reading of blogs! Great pictures and reminders of good things! Love you!

  3. I think May is my favorite month, with life bursting through the softened ground everywhere after a long winter,and warm breezes bringing life back into my body and soul... but August is my birthday month, and that does make it fun for me!


Thanks,I love your comments!
