Ah. September, how I enjoy you and welcome you in. I'm not a fan of summer but I try my best to enjoy what I do like about it. One of the best things about summer is that it leads to fall. And I am ready! My super early morning walks with Frodo are chilly most of the time. School is back in session and I wave to the school kids as they drive by in the yellow school bus. This weekend will be in the high 80s and I just don't care, I know it's the last hurrah even if it takes until October.
This week has been so nice. I am thrilled that so far (fingers crossed) my husband and I continue to remain healthy. May it continue. After the massive catch up from being out of town unexpectedly, I've settled into a comforting knitting routine. I've got some ideas for holiday knitting but I'm still sticking with my selfish 'for me' knitting this month. I will ponder the gift giving knitting only.
September inspires me to reflect on the remaining tasks around the house and day trips I want to explore with my husband before it's too cold outside. The older I get the more I appreciate the seasons, yes even summer my least favorite one of all. I would not have it any other way. The other day my husband said that the almanac predicts lots of snow for the northeast -- swoon!
I'm enjoying my days, journaling all those private thoughts and musings in my art journal, dabbling in creating art - it's been a lovely summer season so now September let's see what's in store for us as we count down to fall.
