I know, I shouldn't even say it out loud but this weekend is Labor Day... which I usually think of as the unofficial end of summer. Sorry, but it basically is, right?
Here in the homeland we had a few hot days in April followed by a mainly cool and rainy June and July. August saw less rain, I think, and then a few weeks of summer and then finished out with lovely, but not so summery, mid-70s temps and cool mornings.
I think even with the "eh" summer weather, I've managed to check off the mandatory summer to-dos: lounge by a lake, take a road-trip vacay, ran a lot, camped in the woods and made cut-off shorts. Not a bad season.
Ok so have a nice Labor Day weekend. I hope to be catching a few last freckles and otherwise completely enjoying myself.
