end of august

a distant forest fire fills the air with smoke and creates a brilliant sunset.
i was not able to capture it accurately.
the sky (and water reflecting it) were gray and peach and the sun was a big round brilliant red.
it was so beautiful.

we are watching our big white friend from down the road again. ezra the great pyrenees. we will be watching him for a couple months this time and he is truly becoming one of the family. parting will not be so easy, but we will cross that bridge when we come to it. who knows, it has only been a few weeks... it may be easier than i think.

this summer has flown by in such a flurry i feel that it left me a bit dizzy and breathless, but i do honestly feel that i have been completely present in it. i knew this summer would be a wild one, so i took a deep breath and embraced it for all that it was, and truly enjoyed the ride (well, most of it... four kids at home all summer is certainly not all sunshine and rainbows).

in a couple of weeks things will be changing quite dramatically around here. 
we have made some decisions that will make this next few seasons quite peaceful and healing for me, and i do believe i am ready for it.


  1. I can't wait to hear the dramatic decisions you have made. We too will have some dramatic changes in just a few short weeks or less... I'm not sure how peaceful they will be though. Only time will tell when the new baby comes around :). Also, I'm thinking chewie and Ezra may need to have a playdate.

  2. Seems like we have been in the same boat my friend : Summer sliping through our fingers, mindful moments and big decisions. I'll share mne if you share yours??? :-)

  3. hooray for watching big sweet Ezra again! and that sunset..... wow.
    hope all is well in your world, friend!

  4. our decisions were not really that "big" but small easy decisions... that will make a very big dramatic change :)

    holly- can't wait to hear about your changes (in person)... doggy playdate for sure!!

    yanic- absolutely :) can't wait to hear about yours!

    amanda- all is truly well friend, thank you. looking forward to catching up again.
