Summer's End


Ethan on Peter's Hill, originally uploaded by Roberta Warshaw.
I am off this week and trying to catch up on some things, like cleaning the studio. I haven't been in the studio too much at all this summer. The weather has been too nice to be inside. Much too hot to run the kiln. As a result everything is dusty, and messy and very disorganized. Yesterday I bought some plastic bins and started organizing things so I can find everything. Sometimes it takes me so long to find something that before I can find it, I lose the inspiration for whatever it was I was going to make. Sigh.

I am also just going to try and enjoy this last week of summer. It is bittersweet for me. Camp is over. No more lunches to pack or buses to catch. At the same time, summer is ending. No more bike rides. I will miss that the most. Some hard core riders ride all winter. Not me. I am a fair weather bike rider. On Saturday I took Ethan to the Arboretum for one last ride before school and sports start. He'll be busy with friends and school and won't have too much time for grandma. That is as it should be!

He was able to make it all the way to the top of Peter's Hill and I think he was quite pleased with himself. Although he did whine all the way home. The round trip ride is over 13 miles so I am not surprised! He did a good job anyway!

Lovely layered photo of Ethan, greenery, sky, and Boston skyline. I can't believe how much Ethan has grown.
