Tomorrow, kids will return to school in the U.S. In fact, some have already. In the country's most northern reaches, there is a whiff of chill in the air and although you would expect that might be so here in Maine, it's been more summer-like than summer was for the past week or ten days. For most of June, July and August, hardly two days passed without thunderstorms or soaking, steady rains.
Labor Day, which has come to have more to do with barbecues than workers, gives us a three-day weekend, the traditional end of beach cottage rentals and for Time Goes By, a day off.
Meanwhile, the nominations for the August Excellence in Storytelling Award have been posted at The Elder Storytelling Place. Maybe you'll have time today to catch up on reading or re-reading the five stories and making your selection for the award.
Enjoy the holiday!
