"August, die she must"

"August, die she must 
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold
September I'll remember
A love once new has now grown old"
~Paul Simon 1965

No, I'm not out of time yet, but work began kicking my door today--my principal's letter arrived in the mail.

What I'm most pleased with is the number of books I've read. I doubt that I've surpassed the unofficial record I set one summer. The summer I overdosed on iced tea and sunshine.

The best changes--I love our new curtains and I'm very happy two prints are now framed and hung (thanks to Groupon). 
 
A great discovery--Marionberries submerged in vodka for 2 weeks creates a delicious concoction.

I admit to being about ready to get back on a "jump out of bed" schedule, but not ready to find out how tired I'll be at the end of the day. I see many dinners out in our September. :>)

LOL!

I simply *HAD* to make the jump to your blog from Google Reader, since the snippet there ended with:

I always thought the schedule of being a teacher would be rewarding, though I have to admit, after having those summer months off, it would be hard for me to jump back into the schedule of waking up and getting going again. Cheers to a new school year! ;)

It does take time to get in the swing of things. Which is one of the reasons kindergarten is a good place to be. We start slow. At least the aides do. Tons of prep while the kiddos are being assessed, but not as much running around.
