Say Good-bye to Summer

To quote one of my favorite country artists, Kenny Chesney, " Ah but there's a summer drawin' to an end tonight..."

Yep. It's that time. The kiddies are heading back to school, and that means I need to be there to teach them. It's been a great summer: heat, vacations, reading, writing, and lazing around. But now it's time to get back to business. I for one am looking forward to it. The lazy days of summer have been nice, don't get me wrong, but I'm ready to get back to a routine. (Although I'm NOT looking forward to the routine of waking up early.)

So as a last hurrah I'll spend some time outdoors today, take a ride in my convertible, and send summer off with a cold drink. (I know I'll be able to do those things for a bit longer as the weather will still be nice, but there's something symbolic about doing it on this last Sunday of Summer Vacation.

And just think...the beautiful season of fall is ahead of us...chilly weather, football, colorful leaves...

So, what's been your favorite part of summer?

Until next time,

Happy Reading!

This summer, my favorite part has been the air conditioner.

I've enjoyed traveling and visiting with great friends, boating and our summer reading program at the library. It's all gone by too fast!

This was the first summer in ages when I didn't go on holiday; and I realised how much I love summer in London.

The summer nights are my favorite, the ones when it's just right to sit outside and listen to a free local concert.

My favorite part of summer was the 2-week vacation camping in the Boundary Waters area of northern Minnesota. Hot during the day, cool at night, swimming, boating, living outside, and playing endless rounds of cards with husband and our 2 youngest teenagers. I know life can't always be a vacation, but it always seems so short!
