"A vacation is nothing to do and all day to do it in." -Robert Orben
Summer vacation is coming to a close. Back-to-school ads are common. Educators think ahead to their classrooms and schools. Students enjoy their last days of leisurely living. There is still time to "just be" during this summer.
I think back on my mini-vacation to the Jersey shore with the grandgirls and
sigh with happiness!
During these last weeks of summer, I pause to reflect on what vacation means and how I can savor the last weeks before Labor Day.

Goodby vacation. I'm off to enjoy my last weeks of summer. How about you?

This is a lovely line: "Vacations, whether they are full weeks, mini-trips, or just day trips, are for dreamers, wanderers, and all who desire a change of pace, time to live in the slow lane, and 'just be'."ReplyDelete
Thanks for joining me here, Amy. I just finished writing and you were quick to reply. Enjoy the rest of the summer and best of luck with the return to school.Delete
Carol, the nice thing about vacations is that they can be long or short, miles away or out our back door. Any time we can get away from the the reality that bombards us is a getaway. Enjoy the rest of your summer.ReplyDelete
Yes, everyday life has its to-do lists and vacations are a way to forget about what must be done to concentrate on family and ways to relax. Your comment is absolutely right, Bob.Delete
I’m already in the second week of school!ReplyDelete
I hope all is going well, Diane. How are the children adjusting to being back to school during the summer weather? Enjoy your weekend.Delete
