September Melancholy

I could feel it and smell it in the air this morning as I stepped outside to see my youngest daughter off for her first day back to school. A few red and yellow leaves that skipped across my feet and the air had that distinct - change of season - scent, a reminder that fall is just around the corner. Yup, summer is drawing to a close and it will be soon time to start making plans for autumn, packing away the summer T-s, short pants and flip flops to make way for warm sweaters, fleece hoodies and jeans - as Don says... "I feel it in the air, the summers out of reach..." ( "Boys of Summer" -Don Henley).

September is a time for fresh starts. The start of a new season, a new school year, back to work, back to schedules and routine back to blogging. Today is my first post in over a month. I have been enjoying getting settled into our new house - lots to do still but I have decided I am no longer going to obsess over the little details and focus on a room at a time. It's unbelievable how much stuff we had squirreled away that we really didn't need. So instead of having a yard sale, we decided to donate all the furniture, clothing and house hold items to charity, and I am still sorting through boxes of stuff... one day at a time.

Thank you for all your good wishes during our move :)
It's great to be back!

Great to have you back! Good to hear that you're getting settled. Very sweet of you to donate stuff, because now more than ever (despite what THEY say about our economy's recovery) people need it. Take care. =)

So nice to have you back blogging.
One day at a time is a good formula!

Lots of happiness in your new home, Jack

SO GLAD to have you back! Looks like we're entering some phase of "Indian Summer" for the next couple of weeks. At least it's some kind for those who have been complaining - not me, I've enjoyed it :)
