~Farewell to Summer~
Good Morning! Labor Day weekend has arrived and it's time for the last big BBQ of the year. Oh, and no more wearing your white shoes either. ;0)
We are going to have a quiet weekend at home. Grace is knitting a doll scarf. Benjamin was sick yesterday, but is feeling all better. He is heading out to a Home Depot woodworking class with Daddy. Emily found a pair of ballet shoes at the resale store yesterday so she is busy dancing. :0) I will be doing a little baking and also sewing some pinafore aprons for the girls. Now, I didn't say sewing "successfully." I have already sewed both of the armholes completely shut! *Blush*
I may have had my first ever very own creative idea yesterday!! I'm thinking about having a "Farewell to Summer Tea" tonight. A vegetable quiche, cucumber sandwiches, spinach salad and strawberry shortcake for dessert! I will be sure to take photos, or rather have my photographer take photos. ;0)
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your family. I will be back on Tuesday with hopefully a new autumn look for my blog, some pictures of my fall decorations and a recipe for Apple and Caramel Muffins!
In the meantime, please enjoy this sweet little poem.
We made ourselves a castle
Once after school was out;
We raked the leaves together
To wall it all about.
We made a winding pathway
Down to the school-yard gate.
And there we worked with might and main
Until the day grew late;
Until one bright star twinkled
Above the maple tree,
And lights shone down on village street
As far as we could see.
We planned that every recess
We'd come out there to play,
But in the night it blew so hard
Our castle blew away.
