Summer in August | Day 6, 7, 8 & 9

Summer in August | Day 6

Today’s rain storm was a heavy one, I experienced it mostly from the inside, with a few moments outside in it here and there during the day. This barn (of sorts) right by our current house (we are moving soon) has been a favorite to photograph. I think it is the color. And the stairs. It got to be the stairs.

Notes from August 6th above, and this is what I shot and wrote on August 7th:

Summer in August | Day 7

Our living room furniture as it looks right now before we move to the farm. Loving how the sunshine comes in through the windows, I love light. Wondering how everything is going to look in my childhood house – with my furniture in it instead of my parents stuff.

On August 8th I was back at the farm again for a few days (MT stayed put at the farm while I went back to the other house and while I worked this week):

He wanted to show of his mad radio helicopter steering skills. I loved to watch.

Summer in August | Day 8

And then there were Friday, August 9th, a really beautiful day! We spent the afternoon down by the red currant bushes:

I decided that we needed to take advantage of the sunshine and good weather by doing things that need to be done out of doors. So I told MT he had to fill a bucket of red currants. It was a long process – but we finished with two filled buckets. (But next time, please remind me of the many hours that comes after this – to make the berries ready for freezing or jam making. I had sadly forgotten). Next time I should use sun protection though, I got burned by the sun after hours out in it. It is still summer and the sun is still strong!

Summer in August | Day 9

I have more photos to share later on. Keep your eyes on the Summer in August category and please do share (in words or with a link to photos) how your Summer in August looks like (and if you do have winter where you are, share that!).

I’m doing my best to keep the summer feeling for as long as I can until fall takes over (and then I’ll do my best to embrace that).

Happy weekend!!

Summer i August | Day 3, 4 & 5

I’m so happy about this project. It makes me stop at least once during my day to snap one or a few photos. They are not all instant favorites, but together they’ll tell a story about how our August of 2013 went down. At least the best part of it. Here are three more days in photos:

August 3rd:

Summer in August | day 3

This was a rainy day, we even got a thunderstorm going to and from.

August 4th:

Summer in August | day 4

A relaxed Sunday (I may have slept until it no longer could be called morning). After dinner we went out to the lake, on the way out I snapped a few photos of me in the mirror + camera (it was a little too dark in there though). I love this project of mine, making it easier to remember to pick up my camera at least once every day this month (I have decided to savor summer and enjoy August no matter the weather!)

August 5th:

Summer in August | Day 5

The plan was to get a good shot of this branch and flowers, but it was too windy and all you can see are some green spots to the right. Instead I got (by accident) a photo of MT helping his Grandpa; which I loved so much more!

I’m still plugging around, with more photos to share later on. Keep your eyes on the Summer in August category and please do share (in words or with a link to photos) how your Summer in August looks like (and if you do have winter where you are, share that!). I’m doing my best to keep the summer feeling for as long as I can until fall takes over (and then I’ll do my best to embrace that).

Summer in August | day 1
Tonight I went for my evening walk with my dog (Ferdinand) and was pleased with the warmth of the night and the summerly sound of grasshopper in the fields. I’m all for this kind of summer in August!

Inspired by Susannah Conway‘s August Break project – mixed with my own need to embrace and savor the summer feeling – I’m enbarcing on a photography project for this month. The goal is to search up Summer in August (as it looks here in Norway in 2013).

So far I’ve done good and captured both of the days with a summery feel, I’m not sure I can promise to keep that up all month long, but I will try! I’ve strugled with August in the past, this year I want to celebrate it no matter the weather or the messes (we are moving houses; help!) (Wish me luck!)

Above is the photo from August 1st. Here are the words:

The boys (MT and a friend of his) convinced me that a trip to the lake was in order. I hesitated for a while, there was things to do, but realized what a good idea it was. Especially for me trying to embrace Summer in August, not thinking too much about fall and winter and cold weather(!). And it was so nice to get out of the house and do something together.
I got to swim too. Hurray for summer not over yet :D

Here is the photo from August 2nd:

Summer in August | day 2

E slept over and they ate breakfast while watching cartoons. They are such good boys; and I’m so happy MT got to spend a little bit more time with his friends before we move!

Please share your favorite Summer in August in the comments. I’d love to see!
