Here we are. Summer is almost over. School supplies are bought. A few things have been pulled out of the garden. Nights, and days, are getting cooler. Where did the summer go? And before I forget, here is a "class picture" from my reunion the other night. I'm in the middle, next to Beth. I really wish that we lived closer together, but alas, it is not to be.
Another sad thing that happened yesterday is that the much revered Uncle Sandy left for home. Home being Victoria B.C. He will be missed by all, except perhaps by Wee Nicole, who has not yet caught the Uncle Sandy bug. That will be next year. The best way that I can describe his attraction for the kids is that he is a magnet and they are iron filling. They gravitate and stick to him. Here we are walking in O'Dell park. This is on one of the bridges that cross the few streams that flow down the park. On the top are the Three Billy Goats, and down bellow...... Two Troll. I know that there is only one in the story, but in my story, there are two.
I start work on Monday. So that will be the beginning of "the New Normal". I am not quite sure how it is going to turn out. Homework hassles, meal preparation, not to mention all of the other stuff that needs to get done on a daily basis is going to be difficult with me not here. I just hope that I can persuade the kids to pitch in a bit more that they have been. In any case, there is now someone on my lap who is demanding attention.
Stay tuned for some weaving content coming soon!
