Transition


Summer's last gasp, although there'll be whimpers for another few weeks, was filled with fun and followed by exhaustion.

Monday, the four-year-old exhibited his first bend-over, fall-in dive from the top step of the pool into the depths.

He gathered fallen pears with the first blush of pink for slicing. We invented unusual s'mores - a slim slice of pear atop an Anna's Thin ginger cookie.

Our first paper airplane sailed onto the house roof. He suggested waiting for the breeze to blow it down but I tugged the ladder from the garage and achieved a wide-eyed rescue.

Tuesday, I noticed new leg bruises from ladder rungs and realized the paper airplane wasn't folded correctly. Hadn't I learned anything in school?

Wednesday, I admitted it's time to let go of my favorite season and to get on with autumn's chores. Let's see now, where did I put the comforters and socks?

I loved this post. To the end of summer I have mixed feelings. Do you suppose we will get any fresh air out of autumn here in the NW? The fractal is very cool. We have one posted last week made with a flame generator.
