How was your first week back, after the unofficial end of summer? We had a quiet weekend, trying to keep two small children healthy during a heat wave that spiked up to 109, in a part of the country that has virtually no air conditioning. But on Labor Day, friends visiting from Holland asked if we wanted to come stay with them at a rented beach house. So we all decided to play last minute hooky, and on Tuesday had one last day of summer. It was pretty much perfect. And though I never ever want summer to go, I guess I’m okay with fall’s arrival in the next few weeks.
But for now, it’s your open thread. Make it rain (comments).
