Wow... Did anyone else notice it's September already?? August really flew by.
In the second half of the month we took a long weekend to visit Lanesboro and Forestville. We stayed at the state park in Forestville and it was a total treat. I got to sit back and let others do the cooking ( I did my cooking prior by bringing baked goods and salads!). Many naps while others were out on horse back and spending the weekend meeting and learning about Maria the exchange student staying with my parents were some highlights. We also spent an afternoon with rented bikes checking out the trails and then stopping in town to visit the Scenic Valley Winery and the other local shops. On the last day John and I went our own way and visited some caves. It was sort of romantic to be miles underground. Surprisingly quite and calm.
And the next thing I knew it was September!! My favorite month of the year because the weather is so enjoyable and I love watching the leaves change colors. Can't wait to get long sleeved clothing back out and soon I'll be pulling the duvet from storage to toss on the bed. Time to slow down and savor.
