That bittersweet sense of loss that comes with summer's end has been tugging at my heart.
Why does the change of seasons bring this touch of melancholy?
Life is busy here at Frippery Farmhouse, son back home today after we moved furniture and boxes for two days. My house is filled with stacks of things to organize and find places for.
I am working on the new art room and the swiftly approaching craft show season. My Ohio Valley Antiques booth is doing well and the Rural Society Show will be upon us before I can blink.
The new deck will be complete before Labor Day and I can begin my landscaping plans for the yard.
Life is full.
Yet this time of years still brings a touch of melancholy.
Do you get that hint of sadness this time of year?
Is it that endings are always fraught with a sense of loss?
Let's enjoy the beautiful September weather and all of the abundance summer's end brings.
Have a lovely Labor Day weekend with friends and family.
I will be bringing some semblance of order to this house for the next week.
Not giving in to the blues.
We still have loads of warm sunny days ahead.
See you after Labor Day!
