This sailboat was resting on the East River near Williams Wharf Saturday morning when I went down there for a run.

The clouds in the overcast skies blocked the heat of the sun creating almost perfect running conditions.

Friday they let us off work three hours early.  I came home and took a two-hour nap, I was so exhausted. After a good night's sleep Friday night, Saturday morning's run was just what the doctor ordered.

Later that evening, Baby Sis came in to town and we went kayaking--also what the doctor ordered.

Sunday a group of friends and their children came over for boating and a cookout.  Today I am back to being exhausted but grateful for the fun weekend and a break from commuting and work.

Also, even though it feels like it should be June because where did the summer go, September has arrived.

School starts this week.  There's an away cross country  meet on Wednesday.  We're now officially tethered to the school and sports calendar.

Long Weekend

This Labor Day weekend, weather permitting, I intend to enjoy this creek.

Boats at Cow Point

I also intend to enjoy this deck.

This grill will see some action on Sunday.

Some friends are coming over for a cookout.

It's been a tough week, and I've only just now come to a point where I'm not weepy at least once or twice a day due to Son's departure for college.

Below is a picture of him on that dreadful day the day he left.

We do miss him, but we're adjusting.  He's doing well and is very happy.

I am really looking forward to a few days off from everything.


I hope your weekend is restful and enjoyable.

Have a great one.
