Summer is Slipping Away

ACK! Everywhere I turn, I find reminders that summer nearly over. I’m in the single digits of days left to enjoy in that carefree, summerlike way. Meghan moves back to college on Sunday, I return to work on Monday, Sarah begins her senior year of high school a week from tomorrow. As if I needed one more reminder, yesterday, day 60 of summer, we picked up the proofs for Sarah’s senior portraits.

This is a sample of the 30 or so shots that I have to choose from.

Today, day 61 of summer, is a day of errands and chores, blah, blah, blah. Here have a pretty butterfly that I saw on my butterfly bush instead!

You didn’t want to see pictures of housework anyway, did you?


  1. Butterflies are much better than housework! Now, someone doing my housework for me might be worth a picture. . . .

    • Yes, I agree – someone else doing the housework would definitely be worth a picture! πŸ˜‰

  2. These portraits are beautiful, the one on the top right is my favourite! πŸ˜€

  3. I am counting the days and mourning the loss of summer, too. School starts for me on Monday. (sigh)

    • Work day Monday, school kids Tuesday. Big sigh here too!

  4. Yes, I think you should take photos of the housework – maybe some beauty of the job would shine through, yes? πŸ™‚

    • Lol, I doubt it Pam – it seems like every time I clean up around here there is a family member not far behind to mess it up!

  5. I remember when my babes had their senior pictures. Oh. Who can believe another ten years have passed?

    • Honestly Kathy – just who is sucking up all the years and taking them away from us? πŸ˜‰

      • It’s a wood sprite,Karma. I’ve tried talking to him about it but he just giggles. Go figure! πŸ™‚

  6. Butterflies always trump housework! (That might explain why my house is such a mess yet I manage to have a huge collection of butterfly images…lol!) Good luck with the senior portraits. They all look good to me. I’d have a terrible time deciding.
