Around here, this is the weekend when we say sayonara to summer. Pools will close for the season on Monday, the few schools that haven’t started yet will begin on Tuesday, and I’ll wonder if I can wear my white pants to work one more time. I’m glad you’ve taken time out of your busy weekend to join the Ultimate Coffee Date Link Up. Don’t forget to visit my co-host Deborah at Confessions Of A Mother Runner and comment on other blogs in the link up.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you about my new morning coffee routine. The Starbucks at my office has started enforcing the “free refill” policy that requires you stay on site to get your refill. Since I can’t get through the day on just one cup, I’ve started spending 20-30 minutes there before heading up to my office with my refill.
It’s not a bad way to ease into my work day–especially when it’s nice enough to sit outside–but once Rosie starts patrolling, I know it’s time to head inside.
If we were having coffee, I’d ask if you’d heard about Rosie’s ill-fated predecessor Steve?
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I finally got to put my feet in the sand last week, when my husband and I spent a few days at Rehoboth Beach. I’ve forgotten how hard it is to find a good cup of coffee early in the morning at the beach–most places don’t open until 7:30 or 8:00! Our quest took us to the edge of town where Egg opened at 7:00, and had really good coffee along with great food that fueled our pre-beach ride.

If we were having coffee, I’d ask if your September calendar is as busy as mine. We’re still debating the Shenandoah 50 mile ride next weekend, but if we don’t do that I may do the George Washington Patriot Run 10K. It’s the first time I don’t have a business trip that conflicts with that race, which includes admission to Mount Vernon after the race. The next weekend I have that business trip, and then I have Reston 10 Miler the weekend after that. I have a feeling I will be missing the slower pace of summer!
Do you have any fun plans for the long weekend?
