If I could fire myself, I would. I’m such a lousy employee. But what’s the saying? On your deathbed, you’re never going to regret that you didn’t work hard enough? Something like that? I am never going to regret this delightful last week of summer.
It included video games, mini-golf, playing with the puppy, walking an energetic and healthy Zelda, swimming, an outside picnic with burgers on the grill, a quick road trip with my niece to visit my aunt and uncle, looking at old family photos, a trampoline, tetherball, and ice cream. Actually, lots of ice cream, I think I had ice cream three separate times.
I didn’t take many photos and I can’t share the ones I did take, because they almost all include other people. But I don’t think any of the people in this photo would mind me sharing. Well, maybe my sister would — she’s the one wrapped in a towel. But she was so darn cute. We all were. It’s a picture that makes me happy just to see.
Next stop, Maine, for a quiet month of writing. I’m not looking forward to the drive at all, but very much looking to the sitting still time.

Oh my word! What a group you were! Somewhere I have a photo of my sisters in a bathtub when they were about 3 -4 yrs old. Nice memories… Be safe in your drive and enjoy the trip!!
It’s fun to look through those old photos! I wish I’d taken pictures of the love letters my grandpa wrote to my grandma, too, they were so lovely. But hard to read even on paper, probably impossible to read in a photo. Maybe next time I’ll transcribe a couple of them.

Love the picture! I’m not sure three times counts as a lot of ice cream, unless it’s like three times a day.
No, three times in a week, I think. But it was going out for ice cream each time and for me that’s a ton. Both of ice cream and going out!
