#MicroblogMondays: Labour Day
"Back to school" time has lost a bit of its sting in the last few years. Obviously, it's been more than 30 years since I darkened the door of a classroom, and even if Katie had been here, she would have graduated high school two years ago and most likely would be in her second year of university or college (gulp). Although we regularly drove by several schools in our old neighbourhood, we would have to go out of our way to pass by a school, living where we do now.
Still, there's a fall chill in the air these days, and I feel a bit of melancholy descending upon me. It's really not the end of summer, yet -- we still have a couple of weeks to go before fall officially kicks in, and I do enjoy the changing colours and cooler weather (and I am hearing predictions that it will be a milder-than-usual fall) -- but the summer has seemed far too short this year.
On a happier note, the malls will be a lot less crowded this coming week....! ;)
