End of Summer?
Goodness its nice here lately! What marvelous weather for August. The dog days have passed and though the calendar still says "summer" there is a twing of fall in the air. Plenty of rain this summer so all is green and flourishing with blooms...my impatiens are huge, still, soon they will need to be replaced with mums and a more fallish look. School has begun...although everything in my being shouts "too early!!"..no one listened to me. Summer is ending in spite of all I can do. :)
However August coming to an end does mean one really exciting thing....
WE ARE GOING TO HAWAII!!!
In only 6 short days we will be on our way.
My hubby and I will be taking a strictly vacation, vacation. No little kids to bundle and chase after....no planning for something "everyone" can do, no "church" stuff on the side...or church work with a little vacation on the side either....just play and relaxation for 9 days in paradise with our sweet daughter and SIL hosting us. I can hardly believe it! We did spend 5 days in San Antonio a few years ago so we are starting to get the hang of it. Who knows...maybe I'll get inspired and have a deep thought like I did at The Alamo...after all we will be touring Pearl Harbor with my SIL.
BTW...his grandfather was actually there at Pearl Harbor that fateful day...in the Navy, just like his grandson...spared because he forgot his rosary on the way to mass and returned to barricks to retrieve it. God always has a plan doesn't He?
So look for some awesome photos in the near future of us being lazy and having a good time...
