NOT that summer is over. It is not. Sure the kids are going back to school, sure it's cooler at night, but summer is still alive and well and you can put the pumpkin spiced candle down for now. We're not there yet.
This is, on the other hand, the traditional end of summer for most people's brains. The Labour day weekend.
What I Have Planned
For this last long weekend of the summer my goal is to accomplish these things:
- Bath, blow dry and clip Philip
- Watch the US Open
- Go to an antique market, buy things I don't need and eat french fries
- Make my first batch of canned tomato sauce for the year
- Make some pizza and sit outside at night - not sure if I'll invite guests or not.
They might not be exciting plans, but at least if someone asks me what I'm doing this long weekend instead of saying "Nothing" I can answer with confidence that I'll be doing these things.
These things will be ignored by most people as they wait for me to ask them what THEY are doing this long weekend. They're going to the cottage by the way. All of them. All the people who ask what I'm doing will be going to a cottage.
Thanks to bathing a 62 pound dog, my memories will be just as water soaked as theirs.
This is What My Summer Looked Like
Taken straight from my camera roll. My summer memories. Not perfect shots with good lighting and pretty editing.
This ... is my life. The real one.
Are you bored yet?
I understand if you are.
This is the online version of someone showing you their vacation photos.
Have a good long weekend. I'll be here eating pizza and washing a dog. How about you? Lemme guess. You're going to a cottage.
