I have been feeling so scattered and pressured this beginning of the schoolyear that I have neglected to post since Labor Day Weekend. Not for want of trying, but nothing has come together! Every year I feel older when the start of the school year comes around and I find it more difficult to re-attune myself to this schedule. Another thing that kept me from even thinking about taking the time out to blog is that our older son, Sam, came up for a visit and stayed a whole week! It was a wonderful visit, I wish we lived closer to do that more often. While he was here we had the usual lobster extravaganza. I don’t remember eating much for dinner that night :*/
What we did another evening, however, was to put together a huge pan of eggplant parm. Sam loves to cook and it is always more fun to do something like that with some help. So John had an off -night and we are even, I guess! (I don’t eat lobster and he doesn’t eat eggplant parm).
So it has been quite a month. September has come and gone in a blink, and today is feeling like a real autumn day. I am looking forward to next weekend when our friend Bruce from NJ is coming up for a visit.
