The Last Weekend of Summer

As sad as I am to bid goodbye to summer, I happy to embrace all things fall related. In this next of the woods you better get out there and enjoy the colours because before you know it, the leaves are on the ground. One cold, hard frost and it's all over but the raking.

My writing sabbatical is also coming to an end. This Monday morning it's butt in chair, hands on keyboard, typing away madly. So we decided to end summer with a weekend away and off we went to Saskatoon.

We love visiting this city. It's only two and half hours away and there are lots of things to do. There's isn't a prettier place then downtown Saskatoon by the river.

This was the route of my Saturday morning walk. It was also the route of our Saturday evening walk! The river flows to the left and historical buildings line the right of Spadina Crescent East.  

Saskatoon is also known as the City of Bridges. Seven bridges span the South Saskatchewan River. If you sign up for my newsletter you receive a free short story I wrote that is set at one of the more extra special hotels on this stretch called The Bessborough, or the Bess. A bonafide prairie castle!

My very amateur picture taking skills do not do the back view justice. Here it is from the front view courtesy of the hotel website.

But that was the weekend. Now it's back to work on Mike and Grace's story. What are your Monday plans?

So pretty! I'm glad you got to take a weekend away before diving back into work. It's still pretty-much summer here. This week's supposed to be in the low 90s.

Today's plans are for writing. And for getting caught up on some honey-dos I let slide. And reading, of course.

My sister lives in Ontario (closer to you for sure) and their fall comes later and lasts longer, which is kind of ideal if you ask me. Good luck with your writing today, may the words flow! And your to-do list!
