Harvest and Earth- Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

I love harvest time because it signifies the end of hard work and the beginning of enjoyment. Continue reading “Harvest and Earth- Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge”

Summer/Fire – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

When someone mentions the word, “Summer,” the word “food” would immediately pops into my head. Summer is the time for rapid harvest. I say rapid because if you don’t harvest it now, it will not be as sweet and juicy in a few hours. At least that’s been my experience with picking blackberries from the bushes in the backyard.

Summer is also HOT! It’s often close to 100-degrees where I live in Utah. Oh, and let’s don’t forget to mention dry. There’s news of raging wildfires just about everyday. Anyone is prone to getting sunburned, heat rash, and dehydrated. Therefore, every summer, I try to find ways to cool myself down – go underground into the basement, drown myself with ice, or go hike up the mountain into the woods with trees and rapid water flowing.

Both pictures were taken last summer.

Changing Seasons at a Mountain Edge

For this week’s photo challenge, Edge, I decided to show two more pictures. Both pictures were taken at roughly the same spot at different times – one at the beginning of summer and the other at the beginning of autumn. I hope you enjoy my selection.  Continue reading “Changing Seasons at a Mountain Edge”

It’s almost over, carry on

il_430xN.92370863112016 has been a long year and this feels like the longest summer of my life. Continue reading “It’s almost over, carry on”


This is a close up on the Asian Pears so far. Hopefully, it will survive until harvest because we had quite a few broken branches lately due to high wind. I watched the weather report a few days and the weatherman said it’s supposed to rain in the upcoming week. Hopefully, that’s true. The weatherman hasn’t been very accurate lately.


It’s not even harvest yet and we’ve already had a loss of apples, branches snapping off due to wind and the weight. These are fairly recent but they grow fast, don’t they. I realize I’ve mostly just showing pictures of the berry bushes and not much of the apples or Asian Pear trees, so here it is.


Finally, here is a plate of blackberries from a few days ago. There have been two other batches since then. If the berry harvest continues, I think I will be super tired of berries by the end of the summer.

Summer So far…

Today’s prompt asks: If it’s autumn or winter where you live, what are you most looking forward to doing next summer? If it’s spring or summer where you are, what has been the highlight of the season so far for you? Continue reading “Summer So far…”

Goals for the remainder of this Summer

Wait, it’s the “remainder of this Summer” already??? 😮

Yes! Yes, it is and before you know it, Fall rolls around and then the Winter. Time flies! I guess that’s the one down side of being so optimistic. Anyway, I’m going to savor what’s left of this summer by getting the most I can out of it.

  1. First and most important goal, PASS my two summer classes! And I don’t mean just C’s, I want A’s! But I have taken my GMAT exam yesterday, don’t ask, I now have one thing out of the way, I can focus on my remainder tasks which are classes.
  2. Become committed to exercise again. Even though I haven’t gain a pound over the last two months after I quit exercising because of all the crazy stuff that’s popped up out of the blue, I need to whip myself into shape again for when my aunt gets here. I don’t want to give her any excuses to make fun of me. So I need to go to gym and do some hard-core exercising. Who’s with me?peanuts-never-give-up-238x300
  3. Keep up with blogging! You cannot believe how many times I wanted to quit especially in the past week or past month even. That’s probably why my posts have been so shoddy but your likes, follows, comments, and all the traffic kept me going. I need to prove to myself that I AM NOT A QUITTER and do not have commitment issues.
  4. Keep my anxiety and anger under control. That is not a very good goal, is it? For me, it is. The fact that my emotions have never been so out of control scares me. I mean, often times, I am happy but then I would suddenly find myself getting angry over little things. I need to work on that.
  5. I don’t know at the moment what else I’d like to achieve over this summer. I can always read a few books but it’s not much compared to these big goals.

In my opinion, this summer have been the least “chilled” and productive summer of my life. So much to do and no time to do it. Just work and study but at least now I have one less thing to study. 🙂

Thanks for reading and see you back here soon!
