A funny saying is "Time flies whether you are having fun or not."
Isn't that the truth?
Here we are in a new month and summer is speeding by.
Already it's starting to get dark earlier. I don't like that at all.
It's imperative, however, to live just one sweet day at a time.
Each day we get up and out of bed is a good day, right?
A lot of people can't even do that.
One good thing about a new month is flipping my beloved Susan Branch calendar.
Susan is absolutely one of my favorite people in the whole world. She's a marvelous artist.
But even more than her art, I love her spirit. She's optimistic and lifts a person up with the magic of her words.
If you haven't seen her blog and her website, I'd strongly suggest checking them out.

The pages shown in this post are from Susan's 2012 calendar.
It's worth it to change months, just to see her whimsical art and read the witty sayings on her calendars.
No year would be complete without hanging one of them on our kitchen door.
No other artist's calendar will do. It's got to be one by Susan Branch.
I'll be sure to buy her 2013 calendar, too, because it's one of the best parts of a new year!
Susan lives part of the year on Martha's Vineyard and part in her native California.
She's such a sweet, charming person.
Even though we have never met, I feel like I know her and certainly wish I did!
Her calendar is now flipped to the new month.
Bye bye, July, hello August.
