The Week In Seven Photos

As we wrap up the end of August and, to many, the end of summer, I was hoping this week’s images would reflect a great end of summer vibe.  You might have read about Gabby complaining about the weather quite often this summer while I’ve tried to remind her about the calm and peaceful nature of the season.

Ok, maybe Gabby wasn’t the only one complaining about the summer weather.  I wonder if they did a poll of introverts if summer would be their least favorite season.  So many people out and about thinking that everyone wants to get together in hot sticky weather and socialize and all I can think is I can’t wait until it’s cold and everyone is hiding in their house again while I’m outside freezing alone on the lake.

I guess instead of a celebration of summer this is turning into a celebration that summer’s over.  I’m skipping with joy today at the thought of football and fall.

A new day, a new month tomorrow and the beginning of the college football season this weekend.  Big match-up this weekend between Notre Dame and Michigan and I wonder if I should wear my new Tottenham Hotspur football scarf for good luck after Kane’s great goal against Manchester United earlier in the week.

My ornery swan buddy shook his head in disbelief that I would make such a fashion choice of combining a Tottenham football scarf with my great Notre Dame jersey, but after looking through the fall fashion magazines, I was once again reminded that you can wear anything if you wear it with confidence.  I just need to remember from last season which one of my Notre Dame’s jerseys is the lucky one.

I was just saying to myself while I was kayaking last weekend what a strange summer it has been and then my bubble burst before 

I could reflect back on all those colorful and peaceful summer vibes.
