Until September......

Hello there.
It is Friday. Again.
I can honestly say that I am not happy about that. It means that school starts in nine days. Nine days! I need to savor these last days of summer with my family, so I will be back here around the first week of September.
We went to the ocean four times last week. We would get up, throw on our suits and be the first to arrive. There is nothing like swimming in the ocean when it is 90 and humid. We would come home, jump in the shower to wash off the sand, unpack the beach bag and be absolutely exhausted.

I kept thinking there was no way I could do it again the next day, but I would find myself packing a lunch the night before and making sure I had enough money for the ice cream man that comes by, so we could do it all over again.



I intend to do the same next week. Along with working on my new knit, and finishing a very good book.
Oh, and getting everything ready for the shop.








See you in September.

Have a great time these next few days. I, for one, want summer to slow down a bit. It seems like the nice (read: not rainy) weather just showed up last week!

Enjoy the last few days. I remember the phrase, the days are long and the years are short. I love that saying!

I'm so glad you hate when school starts! I hate hearing moms say "I can't wait til my kids go back to school" because it breaks my heart!
