Bittersweet...

Summer's over.

Well, this year, it hardly began. The weather has been absolutely TERRIBLE...until this past week, when the sun finally decided to make it's appearance. We had an absolutely PERFECT weekend weather-wise and we enjoyed the long Labour Day weekend to the fullest.

But...summer's over.

Tomorrow is the first day of school, and as THRILLED as I am about getting back into a routine, my heart is a little sad for the kids. The late evenings out with the neighbs and sleeping in until 10:00 every morning are over for another year. The lazy days that lacked thinking or responsibility are gone again. Now, it's back to the grind...the homework, the schedule, the committments. I know it's good for them. I know their brains went to mush over the summer. I know that I will be able to work from home in peace again.

But...summer's over.

I bought my mums today. Actually, I bought a gorgeous arrangement of mums, icycle pansies, ornamental grass and daisies. I got a really good deal at $29.99 and they look perfect on the top step of my porch.

But...summer's over.

Sigh.

Summer's over. Pin It
