August 1 - The hotel lobby at night. Not my current hotel, but one where I used to work.
August 2 - As always, going to Trader Joe's is a special treat reserved for leaving Colorado.
August 3 - Part of the cover of the Career Break Book - I love the idea, but I think I need to have some other ducks in a row before I could up and leave my job to travel the world. In the meantime, I continue to plan my trips AND keep working.
August 4 - Drawing from a training class I taught.
August 5 - Summer 2011 has been full of a lot of good things, but I've been missing mountain time. We took some of the youth up to Nederland for an overnight camping trip. I got a bed in the cabin, the kids slept in the woods, and we all had s'mores. Sweet.
August 6 - View from the cabin in Nederland
August 7 - Trader Joe's has the best 99 cent greeting cards.
My sister framed this one for her "wall of inspiration" at work.
August 8 - The cover of a 1970's cookbook that belonged to my Grandma. It's dated, but the recipes seem pretty easy and enduring. My first baking effort from this book: Peanut Butter Dreams. Click here to read the recipe - and the shoutout to the author, Mable.
August 9 - This year the HOA planted flowers in the flower boxes, they've looked great all summer.
August 10 - This was the day of the spinal tap (not mine). After making up song titles about spinal taps all morning: "Hit me baby, one more spine" "You are always on my spine" "Bringing spinal back" "One Spine Day" and the actual spinal tap, I took the spinal tap recipient out for ice cream frozen with liquid nitrogen at The Crushery.
