End Of The Season

Labor Day weekend. This is the face of Labor Day weekend.

 Snow cones were a big hit. The weekend started hot and sultry. The pool was busy all day Saturday, then a storm front came through with a steady rain all night and provided cool relief. I know my campers in tents were happy! By Monday, the jeans and jackets began to appear.

It was hard to get a good picture with the sun in my eyes, but a kite is flying.

No major problems occurred and it was a great weekend to officially end the season. Not that camping season is over. Now is the perfect time to have a campfire. The weather is perfect for tent camping. Warm during the day and cool at night. But, the pool is closed, so our list of daily chores is shorter.

This is my favorite time of year. Time to gather seed and clean up my gardens. Time to get projects done that have been put on hold. This just might be the year that gets my new bathroom done!! I have all the components, just need to rip out the existing fixtures and get the new stuff in. Sounds so simple, but I am sure we will hit a snag or two along the way.

Right now it is time to take in the laundry that has been dried by the wind ........ stop and smell the laundry.

those kids look ready for summer to end! Just like you..;j
Sorry, but it hardly seems as if the season is already over. With the crazy summer weather it hardly seemed like we had one at all.
Ahhh, to cooler days.

Nothing like laundry dried by the sunshine! Nothing smells so good!

Glad you had an uneventful holiday weekend and that now things will start to slow down. Isn't this weather great? I just LOVE the fall!

enjoy your respite - you've earned it! i think you may not have had as many crazies this past summer as usual. maybe?

anyway, hope your fall is grand!

I'm happy for you that the pool is closed. It would be a relief to me too.
