Now is usually the time to write the obligatory “summer is ending and I’m feeling wistful” post, but to do so would be disingenuous. Yes, I love fireflies and ice cream and corn-on-the-cob as much as the next person, but you know what I don’t like? Mosquitoes. Heat and humidity. Aimless children bickering in the backyard. And so the fact is that this August, as I face the prospect of two children on the same full-day schedule for the first time in eight years I’m quite happy to say Au Revoir Summer! Don’t let the door kick you in the behind while I put the kids on the bus and start churning out posts!
I may not be pining over the end of summer, but I do miss Vermont in that dull achy way that always follows me around a while after we leave (we’ve been home for almost a week). You won’t see me writing lots of posts about our trip there this year; I actually took a blogging vacation and didn’t even bring my camera along most of the time. But happily, I did have my phone with us on our last evening when we took a stroll down my favorite country road before enjoying one last maple creemee. Because otherwise I wouldn’t have caught these quite dreamy shots.
OK, so maybe I’m a little sad that summer is almost over. But only a little, you hear?
What about you? Any summery dreams this Monday? (If you need guidance, please see About Monday Dreaming.)
