Happy Labor Day to all of you. When I taught high school, this holiday was always bittersweet. It definitely meant the end to my summer holiday, and the start of a new school year.
It’s different now, especially living in the north. This holiday means the demarcation of a new season. It means we can take a few days off and enjoy nice weather and no crowds at campgrounds, parks, and on the rivers. It means that the summer green turns to a cornucopia of colors before falling to the ground.
The garden holds our winter beets, potatoes, and butternut squash. Tomatoes are giving up the last gasp. Raspberries finally are producing a crop.
It’s been a good summer. We visited Maryland’s coast, camped on a lake in southwestern Pennsylvania, and attended a family reunion in Michigan. In a few months, we’ll return to my former home in Florida for a nice long visit with family and friends.
And today when I opened my email, I saw a notice from WordPress. I reached two hundred followers for this blog. Thank you for following me. Now that the busy summer season draws to a close, I’ll be back with posts on a more regular schedule. It’s almost like being back in school again.
