official end of the summer

We celebrated Labor Day by nearly finishing the upper deck, the last part of the summer home project, and by having cookouts two nights in a row. We spent Sunday evening with dear friends, including Rachel, whom we haven't seen since her wedding in June.

Then tonight we all enjoyed Mollie's Christmas gift to Clay, her famous Cheesecake of the Month, a delicious rendering of the infamous company cheesecake recipe but drizzled with chocolate. Yum.

Tomorrow we continue with work and school, another extended weekend not coming our way until Thanksgiving. There is a late-evening fall crispness in the air and I swept yellow leaves from the deck twice yesterday. Soon we will say "the frost is on the pumpkin."
