While doing some shopping up north in Wisconsin, I was upset to find fall clothes and fall shoes. It occurred to me that some people were heading back to school and stocking up for FALL. I just wasn't ready for it. I didn't find any new shoes and despite my despising clearance racks, scanned them until I found something more summery.
And so I returned to Illinois with my summery scavenged goods in hand only to be faced with rain this week. RAIN. Driving through the dark and gloominess yesterday I couldn't recall the last time it rained. I am so grateful for that long stretch of good weather, but can't help but think of last fall. Remember how it started raining and didn't stop until Christmas? I'm just not ready for that!
Luckily, the forecast for the last unofficial weekend of summer looks summery. I couldn't be happier. I have a friend coming to town and I may just finally get that fire pit I've been fantasizing about for months. I have plans to prepare a homemade pizza too. It is looking to be a glorious weekend--end of summer or not.
