I can’t believe it, but my summer is coming to an end again – even more quickly than last year. Only three more nights until we are pushed back into our school/work routine and town life. It is always a bittersweet transition. I and the children both miss our friends and are always happy to reconnect. I miss having a hot shower whenever I want, and that is always a treat saved for my return. (we have hot water and a shower here, but it’s only a 5 gallon tank so it must be very, very quick out of necessity. Always a silver lining 🙂
I had a long awaited finish on a special project that was one of my oldest WIPs in my rotation. This is Ink Circles, “Cirque des Cercles” Isn’t it gorgeous? I plan on asking to have it framed as my Christmas gift this year. I love it and am thrilled that I finally finished it.
Meanwhile, we’ll spend the next few days as lazily as we can, slow walks around the island, a few evening fires in the stove as the temperatures drop and lots of knitting and stitching to fill the time until we absolutely must pack up and boat out. I won’t return until Thanksgiving for a long weekend but John usually comes up for the odd weekend with the children if work allows.
