9. September, 2007 - The End of Summer

The Saints lost Game 5 of the Championship Series yesterday to Fort Worth, ending the season. It coincided with a weekend when the temperature around here dropped quite a bit, putting a definite feel of fall in the air. Yep, it’s the end of summer. Which isn’t all bad at this point. I’ve spent a bunch of time getting reacquainted with my couch, and that’s been a good thing.

In other news, I can finally see the light at the end of my long quest for built-in bookcases in the room that was supposed to be finished by Memorial Day. I’ve got a new contractor on the job, and the theory is that I’ll actually be able to start shelving my books before the snow flies. I might not finish until next spring, but at least I’ll be able to get started soon. Knock on wood.

I think that’s going to do it for today. You probably shouldn’t expect real frequent updates around here this month. I’ve got a pretty long list of things I wanted to “finish up before the snow flies” and with baseball season done, and the possibility of snow fast approaching, it’s time to tackle at least a few of them. Not that you’ve been getting frequent updates anyhow, but it will probably be at least another month before I get back to updating a couple times a week again.
