Ready for Camp!

I'm taking a break from August Break since I've been getting ready to leave for camp this week. And what trip to camp would be complete without some friendship bracelets and camp journals? I can't wait for the fun to begin!

August Break Day 13 - My Guilty Pleasure

Tilamook Oregon Strawberry Ice Cream

August Break Day 12 - On the Table

This is our big old table that sits between the kitchen and the living room. I love that Sal and Peppy look like they're peeking out of the tray. If you look at the window ledge between the chair back you can see a few of Q's collection of old Santas....they stay out all year long. This past year I gave the table top a coating of chalkboard paint. When everyone's together we have a great time drawing all over it!

August Break Day 10 - Drink

The suggestion today was to "go outside and place your drink in a scene you love." So, this is my coffee among the geraniums on my front porch.

August Break Day 9 - In My Bag...

My everyday Maruca bag with wallet, glasses case, 2cents change purse, rolled up shopping bag, cinnamon Altoid smalls, a card from and old Hearts deck, my favorite Burt's Bees raisin lip gloss, an emery board, a pen, a loose quarter, a used ferry ticket and a heart shaped stone I picked up on a hike recently.

Not shown: various receipts and a used tissue

August Break Day 8 - Selfie

Ok...I have to admit this isn't really me but I'm a reluctant selfie poster.  I did add my actual selfie to the August Break Instagram site.
