Month In Numbers | June 2013

I know I'm posting June's numbers just a little late, but what the heck, now is just as good a time as any, right? :)

Month In Numbers is a meme started by Julie Kirk over at Notes on Paper. You can see her thoughts and ideas on what you could include in your own Month In Numbers if you look here.

I have managed to keep up with month in numbers and have quite a nice stack of layouts now and I love to look back at them to help me create and provide inspiration for my new monthly numbers.

I plan to pull some papers together this week and start preparing the basic layout for the coming months so I am ahead of the game! Overall, I still believe that is what's kept me at it this year!

Alright, now on to June's numbers :)

After looking at June's numbers I can see they are mostly related to the weather and I really wanted to include the statistics on the flood the southern part of our province experienced.

I looked back at my photos and we were very busy with the yard and gardening, finding flowers and planting them.

I forgot to add that I have read "0" books, and it would appear July will end in a zero as well! That's okay, we are doing lots of other things that are just as fun and relaxing and I'm sure there will be plenty of time for reading in the coming months.

There you have it! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are enjoying the last bits of July!

Our Summer thus far...

I thought I would share some photos with you on how our Summer is going... I'm sorry if you follow me on Instagram you will have seen most of these pictures already...

I went for a walk the other day near the museum and I took this photo of our river valley. I have been making a point of getting outside more at lunch time as the summer seems to fly by and this year I am making the most of every moment. I love the fresh air and seem to have a greater appreciation for the small things... like the amount of green trees and blue skies I see here.

 Moving this rock into the backyard took some extra effort... it is the last of the backyard renos and is the water feature that makes me want to spend my entire evening near it... listening to the calming ripple of the water falling down it's sides.

Wedding number two was outside... It's the first outdoor wedding I have been to and it was an incredibly beautiful day... perfect really. Hubby actually took that photo of the releasing of the balloons while I was trying to take some with my DSLR (I had the wrong setting and captured nothing). I love this shot.

We have also been doing some convalescing... Sophie cat has had some long standing chronic issues that resulted in surgery... It's not easy keeping a cat kenneled but we managed to get through it and she is back to her normal self.

I am taking the Phone Photography Project at Big Picture Classes. It's been fun and the challenges are making me see things differently.

Last weekend we had a family gathering for my sister's  25th Anniversary and took some family photos... yep that's my brother in law, just keeping it real.

That's it friends! And how is your summer or winter fairing?
