the last drops

I am squeezing the last drops out of my summer before Labor day (today), and school starts (too late, it has already started), and fall weather arrives and then...inevitably, winter (ohh brrr).
So, did I go to the beach and bask in the sun on hot sand while gazing at blue fresh water? Check. Michigan!
And on my must-do list, did I go to Colorado and climb some mountains? Check, oh yes! I also painted   sketches of columbines.
Also checking off the list; running every day on the Illinois Prairie Path with my dog, yes did that; planting (and eating) my own tomatoes, yes and they are good!
One of the  things I haven't done on my summer checklist is go to the farmers market and buy flowers, bring them home and paint them. Sunflowers, I need to get some great big ones to paint.
