Saying Adieu to Summer

I am studying a lot of French literature these days. That, along with attempting to feed myself, run, teach my TA sessions and run my workshop, has me just about tapped out. I have been excited about the cooler weather coming in this week, but part of me is sad to say goodbye to summer. The picture above was taken on a perfect late summer night. The sky was just getting pink like this at around 7:30 pm. We grilled outside and then watched a movie projected onto the fence in the backyard. All this living that gets done outside does not happen so much in Chicago, and I'm sad that it will be another 8 or 9 months till it can happen again.
