…it’s very good to see you. My friend Honore says this is her favorite month, and now that I’m past all the drama and stress that accompanies “back to school”, I think it could be mine, too. I do love the promise of cooler temperatures, knitting with wool, red wine (especially on the porch), not worrying quite so much about pedicures (or frizzy hair) and most of all, fresh starts.
(these are the roses in our front yard… in the spirit of embracing a new season, I’m seeing the beauty in the faded blooms. and in the afterlight app that made sunshine where we had none today!)
I was surprised, when I looked back at my blog archives, to see that I’ve not written a Hello September post before. Hello Fall, yes, but specifically September, no. So starting this month, I’m going to make it a habit to welcome each month. In addition to that short list above, here are a few more things I’m looking forward to this month:
Becoming a grandmother (the baby is due next Thursday!) Jeans and ankle boots and sweaters (honestly, this is probably pushing it – the forecast still doesn’t show any day below 90 degrees). Apples. and pears. and oatmeal. Gin cocktails with rosemary simple syrup. Saturdays full of football (and knitting). Casting on a few holiday knitting projects (once I figure out what they are!) Changing colors in the landscape…I’m not quite ready for the leaves to fall, but for them to turn brilliant orange and red, oh yes!
How about you? what are most looking forward to this month?
