17: Season Shift

Technically Summer isn’t over yet, but the weather sure feels different this weekend. I came up north on Thursday, August 27, and I won’t head back to my condo until at least September 8 or maybe even 9. I can’t think of the last time I was here for 12 days in a row since I moved in 2015.

I’m glad the last time I was home I paddleboarded, and I’m also glad I recovered from surgery enough to sit on the boat a few times this weekend. Sadly we took the boat out of the water for the season on Sunday. A few trees are already showing color changes, and with this extended “vacation” I don’t know exactly when I will come up north next.

It wasn’t the typical long weekend or extended Aitkin stay as I really didn’t have the energy for socializing, and wasn’t healed enough for a bike ride or tennis. I’m usually pretty good about getting outside and being active, so I hope that I’ll get back into a good outdoor routine soon.

Every year fall seems to go by so fast. I don’t have specific activities I want to do, but at the same time I know I want to do some fun things. Maybe a day in Hudson, maybe a trip down to St. Peter / hike around Mankato.

I still haven’t gotten to a darn pizza farm despite it being a goal each summer, so maybe that will finally happen, but I’ve kind of given up on suggesting it as activity.

What do you want to accomplish as the seasons change?

  1. I’m so ready for fall and cooler temps so I am greeting the shift in weather with open arms!! I usually do love the shift to fall but I especially love it this year. It’s way easier to spend a long time at the park when it’s not sooooo hot! And being at the park is the #1 thing Paul wants to do. But I do dread the next change of seasons as we will be locked down but we will have a new baby so maybe we will be ok being locked down? We will see!!

    My goal for fall is to go through all the baby stuff and get organized for #2’s arrival!!
