End of Summer....



(wish - 6 x 6 signed giclee print from elfine)



Is anyone else completely in awe of where the time went? How did it get to be the last weekend of summer?? What did we do with the months of long, warm days??

Well, I have to say, I think I'm ready :) So bring on the fall palate, break open the chestnut tea and get ready to curl up with an afghan and watch the glorious turn of color around us!

In the mean time, how about a long over due display of the 2008 Macy's Day 4th of July extravaganza over a Brooklyn rooftop :)




















Enjoy the holiday weekend and here's to a splendid start to Autumn!!

Ahh, Labor Day weekend! I'm definitely celebrating. I'm happy for autumn weather to arrive (enough of this muggy MI heat!), but fall does mean so much more work! (Such as stacks of lab reports....)

I know what you mean - where did you go summer? But I'm getting exciting for fall.

I was thinking the same thing! Where did it go? I have to say that I'm welcoming in the cooler temps with open arms! HURRAY!

Hi there, thanks for visiting my blog. I'm so glad to have found yours! This was the fastest summer I've had yet. Fall will be nice, but winter...yikes, not ready for another one!
