End of Summer

That's the last jump into the lake for Fen, Cate and her friend Jake. Heavy sigh. We spent five glorious weeks in the US  4 1/2 at our cottage in Pennsylvania and 1 week in New York City. It was so peaceful, restful and just filled with family, friends and fun. I didn't want it to end.

A bit of the bloom has come off the rose for me as far as NYC is concerned. I didn't really enjoy it this time. Too much work for one, plus it was scorching, shirt-stick-to-your-body hot. Yick. I forgot how mercilessly hot it gets in the city in August. Won't be doing that again anytime soon!

But now we're back in London and getting back into the swing of things. Heavy sigh. Summer really is too wonderful for words.

Break Over

For a few months I took a break. There was far too much going on and my blog had to go on hiatus. But I'm back. And I'm happy about it. I will start blogging again, in earnest next week!
