The Summer Isn't Over Yet!

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the blue sky, is by no means a waste of time."   ~ Sir John Lubbock

No, Summer isn't over yet. We have one more big weekend coming up soon. Labor Day is
September 1, but the kids are back into school and there are sales to visit.

So we need ideas that are quick and easy and festive.

So Let's Enjoy the Dog Days of Summer

 
Let's sit on the porch
Using colors of Orange can be a great way to transition into fall.

 
I just loved this porch.

Get out and enjoy the water, my mother wouldn't let us swim in the lake in
Barron WI during the Dog Days of Summer. She said that we would get diseased.


Great idea for a picnic table. So, let's picnic.
 
 
Climb a Tree?
 
Swing on a dream  
This reminds me of my spot on the farm, where I spent weekend afternoons reading, the spot overlooked a mangrove forest and the Indian ocean.  Sad, I have lost that spot now.
Read a book-Doesn't this look peaceful.
 
Have a bonfire with family and friends.
 
or?
 

Until we meet again,

Claudia
