The sound of crickets chirping reminds me summer is waning and fall is on its way.

I don't hear birds singing in the morning.  It's a quiet stillness.

Our State Fair has just ended, so that always signals to me Summer is over shortly-not quite yet though, still nice and warm and sunny!!!!!

 

We were in Michigan over the weekend and it was beautiful there as well, I forget how beautiful that state is. My husband was saying he would love to retire to Michigan........

...when my pool and my house are empty.

My kids and family spend a lot of time here in the summer because we live on the Bay in a Beach area. Labor Day is our last big weekend..till they have the October Fall Festival.
