End of summer giveaway

I’ve returned from my brief stint at SFU just in time to realize that summer is nearly over! Just the other night a good friend of mine asked if we could make plans to visit the gardens of Casa Loma before it started to get cold outside. Can August really be halfway through? Can summer really be coming to a close?

I’m afraid it’s true folks. But the good news is that we’ll always have the memories. The remembrances of warmth and weekends away at the cottage are sure to keep us until next year while we wait out the long Canadian winter. We enter September swearing we’ll do it better next time: plan better, think ahead, fit more into our summer months. But the truth is that next year will be upon us before we know it, and we’ll look up, blinking at the sun. Summer again?

    My favourite summer memory has to be of working in my garden, when a multitude of different flowers were in bloom, and there were butterflies and bumblebees everywhere!

    My favorite summer memory was going to my grandmas house during the day. I loved climbing the trees, helping my grandma pick fresh vegetables and berries, and the smell of flowers all around. The day would end with a generous slice of my grandmas saskatoon berry pie! Such an amazing memory I would love to enjoy one more time.
