After work yesterday, K and I took a moment to bask in the end-of-summer sun with a couple of twist creemees (mine with rainbow sprinkles) on the stoop. Now that August is coming to a close, I'm simultaneously relieved and regretful. The plan is to pack Labor Day weekend full of all those summertime activities that we didn't get around to: bike riding in the Champlain Islands, one more visit to the drive-in, taking a cruise of Lake Champlain, dining al fresco at the restaurant across the street, BBQ at Lake Iroquois, perhaps a champagne picnic? It's always amazing to me how my to-do list is always thwarted by a full schedule (or lack of funds). That said, I already have plenty of fun, festive activities planned for autumn!
