We are about to embark on the 2500-kilometre drive back home, hauling our new (to us) three-person (or two people, and a dog) pop-up trailer and all the boxes pulled out of my mom and step-dad’s basement plus a few extras (my grandma’s strawberry cream-and-sugar set; my late aunt’s three-tiered cookie tray; the 1970’s yoghurt maker I scored at Goodwill awhile back and couldn’t find room for in the first move out).

As soon as I cuddle the neurotic cat for several hours, I’ll get back in the swing of things… In the meantime, enjoy the last days of summer, such as they are (rain, rain, rain where we are now).
