August Break Day 31

August Break prompt: smile

august-break-self-portraitI know I posted this already for August Break, but I don’t take a lot of self-portraits, and was surprised by how much I don’t hate it.

It’s the last day of the “Break,” and I am pretty proud of myself. I only missed a couple days, but always fixed it. It really made me yearn for not only taking more pictures, but for writing more on the blog. Very refreshing, since this summer has been so unpredictable, energy and motivation-wise. But I have some great stuff in the works, and I am happy to share my adventures with anyone who wants to read about them.

August Break prompt: number (which I decided not to do)

August Break Day 26

August Break prompt: YES

This is probably the biggest YES all summer: I got a bike!

new-bike-free-spiritThe mailman at work (my Saturday work day BFF) told me about a whole bunch of bikes for sale down the street at the thrift store. He knew my bike was stolen, and that I like retro stuff (he looks for cameras for me, too), so I trusted him and took a look.

SUCCESS! A Sears Free Spirit with the seat smooth and uncracked, the brakes in working order, and a perfect shade of green.

And for anyone who is keeping track yes, I did end up buying this helmet.

August Break prompts: hear & Sunday morning.

I know this photo has nothing to do with the prompts, but I started a 30-day Slow Carb Diet today, threw out all the clothes that didn’t fit me, and haven’t had bread or cereal all day – I’m dreaming about these sour belts.
