“Do you know," Peter asked, "why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.” ~ J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan


it bees a little crazy and i can use me a little playful so that is why

I will be August-breaking.
With Susannah.

At least, I will be trying.
One picture a day.
Few words or no words.
Technically, no rules though.
I cannot imagine I can go a whole month
with just a few words.
I cannot imagine I can get a picture up each day.
I imagine I will backslide here and there.
But it sounds playful,
and I can use me some playful.

There's tons of us.
Well, at least hundreds.
Each on her or his own blog,
each August breaking,
each playing.
You don't even have to have a blog.
Susannah says y'all come
and she will explain it all.
A link is right here.

Leading up to August.
I will be either noisier or quieter,
but I will be here.
I will be here in August also.
We will see if every day.

And like I said,
expect an explosion of words every few days.
And look for pictures.
They will all have captions.
Some of them may be long.


  1. This sounds like such fun! I'm in! Thanks for sharing. ;)

  2. This sounds interesting! :-} Looking forward to the summer ad-blog-venture

    p.s. a friend who does cool phoios w/ his i-Phone uses that monochrome ap...Way cool!

  3. Jeannine - It does sound like fun, but I am notoriously bad at sticking to this kind of thing. I try, I really do, but the day always comes where I have to have words, and plenty of them. LOL! I am, however, ready to be easy, to play, so perhaps this time will take. :)

    Skye - I don't have an iPhone. I know!! :) Interesting is a good word. We will see how I do. LOL! Can't wait to watch everyone else!

  4. don't you love when someone says "play" and guess what ?.....NO RULES !

  5. Susannah just needs to start August with "1, 2, 3 . . . GO!"


  6. Does this mean that poor M is going to get flooded with all those words that aren't getting purged on your blog :-)

  7. Hey - me, too! I'm all over the map on blogging. Summer has been so busy, I'm doing well to manage once a week, and do little visiting. Bloggeth away every day or no!

  8. What a fun, refreshing post..I too am taking part in Susannah's August Break.
    So good to see that little girl face again.

  9. Liz. I hadn't thought of that. Uh oh.

    Vickie - Yayy! See you there! Or here. Or . . . well, you know!

    Glenda - I saw you over on the flickr list. It cheers me up to see some familar folks. I meant to email you the other day, but didn't have your email address. SO glad you stopped back in. (I will find your address - I have it saved with Unravellers, I think.)

    I'm starting to get excited!

    Although I will hafta think about poor M and all those extra words. :)

  10. I saw this on beth's blog and thought about it, and now you make me think about it more...it is the words thing for me too, I don't know if I can give them up. But I have a day or two to think about it, and it does sound like fun, and really there are no rules...

  11. I am so glad you are doing this too! It will be good to take a break and just have a bit of fun :). I am looking forward to discovering some great new blogs too!


  12. I love December Views so much, and I could use a mid-year break like that... Not giving up words, necessarily, but I will be posting a photo as often as I can. And knowing that words are optional is *fabulous*. =)

  13. first i was in a bloggin' funk and it would be days between blog post and then it was days between the times i would pick up my camera so when I seen Susannah idea...I felt such a huge wave of relief! I'm hoping the idea of little if no use of words will get my mojo going again... i am really siked to see what what everyone's work...

  14. lol!
    I was doing this August break thing, even though I didn't know I was doing it!

    I need to post more.


come. sit under the emma tree & let's talk. i have cookies . . .
