..."Sweet days of summer, the jasmine's in bloom. July is dressed up and playing her tune.
And I come home from a hard day's work, and you're waiting there, not a care in the world.
See the smile a waitin' in the kitchen, food cookin' and the plates for two.
See the arms that reach out and hold me, in the evening when the day is through.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowin' through the jasmine in my mind..."
Seals and Croft, 1972.
Exactly two weeks...and my summer will end.
I know I have lamented about the boredom I felt for a few days, but sheesh...the thought of going back to work still hurts...new students, new administration, proving myself all over again...in just two more weeks.
I am leaving Saturday for my last hurrah- a second beach trip with the daughter and my parents. The person I feel sorrier for is the husband...he can not get off work to go with us. Like so many others, he does not get a summer break. So, I should suck it up and not complain about it being over. It will be good to get into a busy routine again.
