Sights and Sounds of Late Summer Days


Oh this week has been glorious, the humidity gone, and a brisk chill is in the air in the mornings.  I know, I know, it's too early for this change.  Well, don't worry, the warm weather will be back tomorrow almost reaching 90 degrees once more.  I'm at peace with another warm up, you see, I know that these warm ups are limited now.


This week was the start of school in our area and with that is a bit of stillness and silence.  Even the cicadas are being quiet..maybe they're in school as well!  I used to love when school started, new pens, pencils, notebooks and new teachers.  I felt comforted being wrapped in a schedule with syllabuses.


I finished the hat for my dear friend's daughter, thank you for your well wishes and comments, I've passed them on.  Oh and she loved the hat!!  Currently, I'm am resting a sore forearm from all the aggressive knitting that I did.  The pain was worth it though.  I can still knit but I know my body and rest is what is needed for two or three days.


Have a lovely weekend and see you Sunday!

  3. We had a few days start out with lows in the upper 50's and lower 60's - it was glorious! Even the days weren't as hot and the humidity wasn't terrible. Now we're back in the 90's and the humidity came back with a vengeance. Oh well, at least we know fall is on the way. Give your arm some rest and have a great weekend!

  7. Hope your arm gets better soon. I have to watch myself too, my thumbs and elbows. I love the quiet of back-to-school but I do miss my babies a bit. We have crickets or cicadas here at night. It was a new experience for us as we never heard them in the city.

  9. I am not ready for cooler weather. Maybe because I know what's coming right after, our first full northern winter.

    Trying to enjoy the moment and soak up the temps being in the 80's again.
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  13. And a lovely weekend to you too! I also always loved the beginning of a new school year, and to be honest I'm a little envious of all the kids that get to start a new school year now.

  15. Like you, I am looking forward to Autumn, although I can't complain about the summer we have had! I love the shot of the acorns, Karen, it's great. I hope you're having a lovely weekend! 💓

  16. As a student, I loved going back to school in the fall. As a teacher, I have mixed feelings, more because of the system than the kids.
    Hope your arm is beginning to feel better.

  17. Looking forward to Fall, it has been a long, hot summer in South Carolina and not much rain. The children have been in school for a couple of weeks now, have never gotten used to the early return in August down here. Hope your arm recovers quickly!

  20. We have little signs of fall everywhere as well. Seems like the summer just flew by, but I welcome the change. Like you, I always loved back-to-school days and now with little miss starting kindergarten, it has taken on a whole new meaning. :-) I hope your arm is feeling better. xo
