We had a long "to-do" list, which happily got completed with ease.
Take down the canopy
Cut the lawn
Clean the garage
Give Paul a haircut. (I have been cutting his hair FOREVER!)
Fix leaky taps in bathroom
Go to a movie! (Me. I went. With Jill, my daughter.) More on that later.
Go to Pike Lake canoeing
Stack firewood for winter. Chop wood for kindling.
Make lasagna, bake cookies, grill shrimp.
Yes, it was a good weekend. What a contrast in weather though. Almost unbelievable. On Friday it was warm in the morning and by the time we got to Pike Lake with the canoe shortly after noon, it was really warm. We didn't bring Athena's swim suit so after our 1 1/2 hour canoe trip I stripped her down and sent her off into the lake.
What fun she had. Catching minnows and snails. Swimming and running along the beach.
And in typical "only child/ home schooled" fashion, she has trouble with socialization skills, as you can plainly see.
The weather is turning cool very quickly. I feel the chill of an early fall. Still, we ate dinner outside 3 of the 4 nights. Who cares if we had to don a sweater to do so. We do what we do. And to reiterate one of my favorite quotes: "There is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes."
Back to school tomorrow. Despite the rain forecast (oh the poor farmers) this week is going to be wonderful!
