Yet the beginning of August is also tinged with sadness. Daylight hours diminish. There is talk of kids returning to school and vacations ending, and for most people the slower paced season is inevitably replaced by fall activities. For hub and me, summer is the busy season. We look forward to the less frenetic seasons of fall and winter.
However there is much to look forward to before summer officially ends. September is considered the best month of the year around my part of the universe. The weather continues to be warm enough to enjoy the beach and outdoor activities, the crowds have departed, stores and restaurants are open, no annoying long lines and waits (except sunny weekends).

And of course eating!
|My grandson cooked this dinner - Garlic Parmesan Chicken with zucchini.|
We have lots of zucchini (from our CSA) and use the veggie in a variety of dishes.
Also cooked a large pot of zucchini/tomato sauce and froze batches.
|Challah French toast for breakfast. Yummy!|
