End of Summer Blues

Summer’s end–oh what a summer it’s been. In almost every way it seems to have lasted forever, but realistically since fall like weather has arrived three weeks early, and summer like sunshine and warm weather took forever to arrive, summer lasted a whopping 2.5 months here in Wisconsin.

What did we do?

  • Grilled hot dogs and hamburgers just once
  • S’mores
  • Several walks
  • Several farmer’s markets
  • Pumpkin patch
  • Container gardening from march-august 30th
  • Fed lots and lots of orioles, chickadees, finches, and hummingbirds (sad to see them go for another year). Chickadees, nuthatches, and finches will keep us company all winter long.

Most of our shopping was grocery pickups, no vacations, no get-together’s, and no travel for us. Covid has also put our move on hold and we’ve relisted the home we purchased and are taking a couple steps back to reassess our next move.

To say almost every little thing in this year sucked is an understatement. I’m not sure if I would have made it 100% mentally without my garden, the birds to listen to, a patient husband, and our humorous faithful cat Gabe. Oh and the food I enjoyed–so many days upon days of great locally grown produce. Take Care friends 🍂
