It has been a busy few weeks. It always gets this way working at a campus bookstore.
The storm will pass, things are already starting to slow down.
For example, yesterday, I only worked 12 hours. It felt, strangely, like a really short day. (It's all relative, right?)
And though this summer was a great one (we had one of the best July's for weather in our little part of the world), it seemed to have passed all too quickly.
This morning I was looking at some pics from the past summer, and laughed when I saw this one of Alexander and I goofing around at the Dinosaur Mini Golf on Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls earlier this summer.
It reminds me of how the fall season brings Halloween -- one of our family's favourite times of year. Fran and I have always loved Halloween. And, ever since he could walk, Alexander has been involved in the huge tasks involved in purchasing new materials for, deciding on a plan, and setting up our front yard to be a spooky haunted graveyard.
And I just love those special family moments where, after acquiring one or two new Halloween things as a family, Francine sends us out to work in the front yard; then the delight we take in showing her all the details of our new "masterpiece."
