Last Day of August

Greetings Earthlings!  Have you missed me?  It's been a slow news week, with not too much worth blogging about.  Actually, nothing much has changed, but I felt I should say something.  Summer is on the wane, we're having to close the door at night after it cools down.  I think the 5 plant food spikes I put in my ivy geranium have provoked a late season blooming, so that plant is still with us. 

We were not in the mood to ride today.  I'm not sure what is going on with me and the bike.  I think part of my reluctance to saddle up is that I am just sick of everywhere we ride.  So, we decided to hike.  We walked up the old Preston trail in to the woods.  We got a good 2.5 hours on our feet and it was enough.  It's a steep up and then a steep down.  It's not as terrible as Chirico, but it's bad enough.  Several little streams are running on the side of the hill, this is one of them.

Other than this pitiful offering, I have nothing of any interest to report.  We're leaving for Italy September 12, so there will be photos of new horizons.

  1. Italy!!! Bellisimo!

    Summer was fleeting. Can't believe we are at Labor Day already. I am leaving for 3 weeks in NJ to visit my family (9-17 to 10-6). Looking forward to that getaway.
