The beginning of the end

For those children in our community, yesterday was the end of summer. They were rounded up and placed in buildings for 7 hours a day and thus their summer came to an end. Our school year is not starting until next week but we are beginning to start the process that is the end of summer. We started draining our pool. The water temp. had gotten too low to make it comforable to swim. Even though we are still having warm days our evenings are just too cool so I started to drain it a little early this year.
This is just one of the early signs that summer is over. I also ordered all our school books and our oldest has started her junior year at the university...yet another sign.
We are finishing up some of our summer projects but there is still much work to do on my dh building. It has slowed down since he had to spend a few weeks finishing up the rental properties but with that almost done I am hoping that next week we can start to bring in the stone for his building and for our new driveway.
I am so ready to put out my fall decorataions but my girls are saying it is just a little too early....Oh please let me put them out, girls. LOL
And finally, I wanted to show you more of my cross stitch project...some of you wanted me to share here it is...still in progress but getting much more close than it was. Sso, what do you think?
I have much to do, so until next time, be blessed.

That's alot of cross stitiching! Let's see, is it On Comet, On Cupid, On Donder and Blitzen....etc...ending with Now Dash Away, Dash Away, Dash Away All? I used to know all the words to The Night Before Christmas (and my kids both recited it at different ages).

I haven't put out my fall stuff yet, but I hope too the end of this weekend (what little I have for indoors anyway).
