The End of Summer

August is almost over; the kids are back in school. Summer comes to an end, and it is time to get prepared for Autumn. We finally have an official date to get the flooring done in our house. Earlier this month, I cleaned the garage out to make room for some furniture and some boxes. I really don’t like to look forward to move all the furniture around and deal with the mess of the construction. But once it is done, it will look beautiful. I have to keep the positive outcome in mind. 😉

The garden needs to be prepared for the Autumn/Winter season. A lot of crops love the cooler days, like cabbages and carrots. That’s also a good time for weeding the garden, since the mornings are not so hot and humid anymore. Soon, the migrating birds and insects will visit the garden. It will be good for them to have a welcome place they can rest, before they have to move on to travel south.

In the meantime, I’m sitting outside with a cool drink in my hand and enjoy the last days of Summer.
