Week 36 {365} Savoring the last moments...

Here in the heartland of Iowa we have been enjoying breathtaking, beautiful days. Temps in the 70s. Doesn't get much better than this.

So, we are savoring the last moments of summer...

Look carefully. You might even be able to see the carpet.

I was feeling a twinge of sadness (as I sifted through photos) thinking about bidding farewell to summer,

but I have enjoyed the anticipation of fall as we gear up for the cooler temps. We are settling into our new schedules and routines nicely. We managed to weed and prune all the bushes this week. And I even pulled out my fall seasonal totes. (Pics to come soon.)

So, overall a great week. What have you been up to? Are you having smiley moments?

  1. I will miss summer too, but I am really ready for the fall! We have just been hanging out around the house the past few days. In a week and a half we are headed out for a road trip to Colorado. So we are just relaxing and enjoying home for now and preparing for the trip! I hope you are having a great weekend. I can't wait to see what else he caught!

  2. we have also had beautiful weather. Are getting used to the school schedules and just hanging out. The hubby is an OT freak these days, so not much family time- but what we have had is GOOD. :)

  4. Looks like y'all are having a great time! I love those pictures, especially the popsicles! I'd love to have one of those right now.

    I can't believe how fast this year has gone by. Halfway through September already?

  6. We too are enjoying the cooler temperatures and although I can't believe summer is essentially over, I'm excited for fall and our corn and soybean harvest. Love the photos as always.

  7. Great pictures, great memories! :)
    The skateboard, Popsicles, and soccer trophies bring back a lot of memories of when our son was younger. Now he's a soph in college.

  8. It's nice that you got some perfect weather at the end of the summer to really enjoy it.
    Personally I like fall. I love the smell of it, as dorky as that sounds.
