it's the end of the summer as I know it


gathered lavender

card from here.
I am back to work Monday, tho we are furloughed until Wednesday. So much to do with opening a new school. It never all gets done, but the important things {like putting up Cat in the Hat magnets from Target's $1 bin} get accomplished.

....love lavender. I don't know why I hadn't thought of this before..Paul had dried some lavender and then boiled it in a kettle. The smell was wonderful throughout our abode,,ahhh we can let summertime linger





{the lanterns were only out for Paul's birthday movie night... & again forgot to turn them on}

I can't believe it is almost that time of the year. Lavender is great. I love sitting on the porch and smelling it in the wind.

oh, august! where did you sweep in from? we've yet to start our vacation here-headed out tomorrow to cali and then to vermont. your post fills me with that bittersweet feeling i always get in septmeber: the possibilities of a new year with the longing for summer to linger.

p.s. glad "buy ice cream" is on your list.
