September

September

Weather wise it isn’t horrible outside. It is cooler here and I was able to sit outdoors with a glass of wine after dinner. The was no breeze just the quiet sound of birds calling. I imagined their tweets to be something like, “Thank God it’s not that hot.”

That hot is like a heavy cloak on my chest.

Labor Day in the north signaled the end of summer and back to school. If the weather turned warm again it was referred to as Indian Summer.

I long for those cool temperatures. The careful selection of back-to-school clothes. The smell of a leather school bag. The gradual enfolding of colors; green to gold, to yellow, then bright orange and burnt red. And waiting for the first snow fall.

  1. Sounds like a case of missing both the northeast and those “good old days”. I have the same affliction! We do get some color change here but only yellow-boring! And my granddson starting kindergarten definitely brings back the excitement of those first days of school, both for me and as I think about my kids’ first days. And don’t get me started on weather. I really miss 4 seasons!

    Yes and Yes. Thanks for commenting
