Not ready to say goodbye

“Summer afternoon . . . summer afternoon . . . the two most beautiful words in the English language.”  Henry James

The long weekend has yielded a bounty of errands & chores completed.  The fire pit area is now complete with its timber surround and plenty of crushed rock between the actual fire pit and the timbers.  Just in time for BooBoo’s birthday party this week.

Invitations were printed and mailed.  Shoes & pants purchased for school.  Laundry done.  Last minute shopping for the party completed.  And today yields a trip to the MN Renaissance Festival.  It’s been several years since we last went to the Ren Fest.  BooBoo was still riding in a stroller then, about 2 years old at the time.  I remember him eating the turkey leg DH had bought and pretty well scarfing the whole thing down.  DH had to go buy another for himself.  We’ll see if the boy can pull that off again.

School will start in earnest tomorrow.  But at least for now, summer lingers.  Enjoy the beauty.

"If you are what you should be you will set the whole world on fire."

I finally understand

"Among those around you, apostolic soul, you are the stone fallen into the lake. With your word and your example, you produce a first circle, and it another, and another, and another, wider each time. Now do you understand the greatness of your mission?" St. Josemarie Escriva: The Way
