Labor Day Lament!


thumb_IMG_0568_1024

 Even though the first day of Fall is not until September 22nd, Labor Day officially marks the end of summer for me!  Today, I start my school year, and every weekend or day off from today, will be dedicated to preparing the house for winter, and anticipating the upcoming holidays.  It is mind-boggling to know that Thanksgiving is 11 weekends away and Christmas is 15 weekends away.  So in celebration of a beautiful, fun, and recuperative summer, I will share some of my summer highlights in pictures with you!

June 17th was the day I had a hip replacement.  My first outing was a doctor’s visit to MGH!

It wasn’t long after this visit that Jeff and I visited our favorite clam shack, & began our 4th of July celebrations, officially starting a great vacation!

It was a great time at Diane & John’s on the 4th!

But the highlight of my summer vacation was the company I had!  It was great having Auntie Millie, Uncle Joe, and cousins Joanie & Paul visit!  FUN!!!!

It was wonderful to meet my beautiful great-niece, Isabelle, born in June, hang with Whitaker my very handsome great-nephew, & my Carla, whom I adore!

Monotonous chores are easily accomplished when you add a visit with the horses, a bouquet of flowers, and picking up produce at 4 Town Farm.

Summer coming to a close, I will definitely miss staying up to all hours of the night reading and just looking at the sky and being mesmerized by the full moons every 27 days or so!
