As much as I hate to admit it, all the indicators are there-- Summer is, indeed, winding down in Rochester. The birds are migrating, the leaves are beginning to curl around the edges, and sweaters are making their way back into rotation.
Autumn didn't get the memo on subtlety this year; abruptly dropping our area 20 degrees the very first week of September, resulting in the usual minor maladies. Ah, the dreaded cold season. Fortunately, thanks to copious quantities of Emergen-C and our admirably thorough hand-washing skills, none of the Ambrosia staff was hit with much more than a little respiratory crud and sinus congestion.
Around the office, everyone has been squeezing in their own end-of-summer activities. Labor day weekend, the Dunhams hosted a BBQ at their newly-purchased residence. There's no better way to celebrate organized labor unions than with a gut-busting feast-- it's the American way! A few weeks ago, I returned from a much-needed vacation to Colorado; where I had a blast in one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, with a group of friends I don't see nearly enough. Bluegrass and mountain air really are time-tested cures for the blahs!
The Smith family recently paid a weekend visit to Adirondack State Park, enjoying the last of the heat with their canine companions. While Jerome headed up to Maine to catch up and kick back with his family.
Now that the cool-down has arrived, it's time to make the best of it with cozy socks, warm soups, and pumpkin-flavored everything. Hopefully this fall will be a nice long one, because I'm certainly in no rush to get to the next season!
