The past two days were filled with outings with friends, paper-crafting (I'll share soon), a wee bit of free time alone for a change, and turning these...

into delicious gazpacho from one of my all time favorite cookbooks, stuffed eggplant, raita, jam, and one simple stone fruit crisp. Yes, I did a lot of cooking. It's one of the ways I cope with stress. In this case, I am preparing to go back to work in four short days. I am so grateful for our beautiful summer.
There was a well-attended concert on Saturday morning, too...


Given by none other than "Chelsea!"
Our last weekend of summer, both a little sad. It means changing our lives around again. It means not spending every day with my adorable little one, saying g'bye to seeing all the friends we unfortunately don't always have time to see during the work year. Most likely an end to all of the creating we both did inside and out, the long lazy mornings just being side by side. If you can, send some good vibes over to me and my girl this week.

While reading I oddly got a flashback of a line from one of shakespeare's many writes while thinking of the end of summer. "Such sweet sorrow thou must depart" was the line lol. I was never a big fan of reading his work cause i could never get into the old english way or words, but I remember having to read Romeo and Juliet in 8th grade and again while having home instruction for 9th grade. I highly dislike when summer "departs" us lol.

Aaww. I am sending great vibes to you and your girl. And please keep me posted on the paper beads! I would love to see the ones you have rolled too...I don't have a knack for those...although one could argue if I have a knack for the papier mache ones too, ha ha, but I sure like em!

I will definitely be thinking of you both as you say goodbye to summer and adjust your schedules. Even though i work the 12 months out of the year and my kids are grown, I still get sad when "Back to School" rolls around. Somehow the rest of the year accelerates and the days get shorter.
May the transition be peaceful and easy.
