We had what will most likely be our last day in the pool yesterday. It was a bright, humid 89 degrees, so we oiled up one more time and floated for a while, savoring the sunshine. It was windy, though, and last night a storm blew in and brought in autumnal temperatures, predicted to last for the next week or so.
It has been another great summertime, full of kids and fresh vegetables. The chiggers outdid themselves this year–I picked up more last week! I did the usual summer-rant, cursing the 100degreeshumidity70percent that is July, but that is what pools are for. So many summertime songs passed through—from summer in the city to summer girls, summer of ’69 to summertime blues; and don’t ever forget Popsicle of Love (it’s summertime, babe)…
Of course, in my day, the day after Labor Day seriously, actually, was the end of summer as we marched back to school, wearing our new back-to-school clothes. So it is that I have been going through all my clothes, trying to find something that I can wear on our upcoming Disney World trip. I have trimmed down, as mentioned, and I’m so thrilled to be back in my old clothes again, but they are Obviously Old and Really Outdated. My shoe situation is sad, too, as my closet is full of worn-out, but comfortable!, shoes. I feel a shopping spree coming on…
We celebrated our son’s 36th birthday on Sunday at Bru Burger. (isn’t my baby darling? that’s his new smile)
There’s plenty of September chores for the garden, but I’m still going through stuff in the house. One more big haul to charity will wrap up that project for the year and I’ll have some room to breathe…and buy new stuff…shiny things!
