Marking the end of summer?

How do you mark the end of summer? Or are you rather likely to deny the change that happens in September for most?

For me, I will continue to grill until it is too dark to see what I’m doing at dinner time. I will spend time outside biking or sitting–maybe even more time once those pesky mosquitoes freeze their wings off. I’ll still need to mow my lawn…

So, marking the end of summer for me comes with some sort of canning activity and the consumption of funnel cake. I had my cake last week but have yet to can something. But I haven’t had time to do any canning yet. So, as far as I’m concerned, summer is yet to end even though Wednesday marks the real beginning of the semester with a faculty meeting.

Pickles anyone?

  1. I’m not really a big swimmer (the dog paddle is about the height of my ability), but every summer when they drain the water out of the pools I find a bit depressing. I know cold weather is just around the bend…

    You need to get a motorcycle. Then summer does not end until the ice forms.

    What are you guys talking about? This is a great week. The average daily high drops below 90f this week. Praise God, fall is here! (Dallas, TX)
