Labor Day is in our rearview window.
Yet we were able to officially close summer our own way, in style... at the lake...on a boat. Delft blue skies with puffs of white clouds, lukewarm water to tube in, sunshine to lightly toast our bare arms and legs, and an affable breeze to blow our sun-kissed hair, picnic baskets and coolers filled with pimiento cheese for sandwiches or celery, pickles, watermelon, key lime pie, and brownies.
And pleasing to some taste buds, a cracker spread with basil pesto, cream cheese, goat cheese and garlic...yummy!
I measure my years by summers.
Good-bye sweet summer... until next year.
