random five friday - happy labor day

We may not have seen any hawks last weekend, but the views from atop Putney Mountain were fantastic!


Yeah - you just never know what you'll find while hiking in the woods of Vermont.


Students are returning to the college campus where I work. It's beginning to feel a bit like Fall around here.

Today is the last day I'll be driving myself to work. Yep - I'm putting my daily commute into the hands of the MBTA

I'm wishing you all a wonderful weekend, and hope you find a few moments to relax from your labors.
Love, peace, and joy!

I am joining Nancy at A Rural Journal for Random Five Friday
