It’s that time of the year again! It’s September – the gateway to Autumn. That lovely time when I come out of hibernation and do my “Snoopy dance” because it is my favorite time of the year! Of course, it would not be the same if I didn’t post my annual “Welcome to September” blog post. And as always, it includes “September” by Earth, Wind and Fire!
It’s the time of year for Pumpkins! Autumn leaves! Chilly nights! Scarecrows! Pumpkin Kisses! Pumpkin Lattes! Pumpkin Bread! Pumpkin Pie! Pumpkin everything!
Now if only the weather would chill down a bit – quite a bit as far as I’m concerned. Enough with the 70′s and 80′s already! Bring on the 40′s, 50′s and okay – 60′s! It’s time to break out the turtlenecks, sweaters, and fleece vests!
This summer flew by crazy fast. We’ve been busy – especially the last half of July through August. Last week was my first week at home where we did not drive up north and back multiple times – or even once, for that matter. It was nice to rest. I still have a ton of projects, household stuff, etc… to catch up on before the next wave hits.
AnneShirley starts first grade tomorrow. FIRST GRADE! I’m not dealing with the anxiety issues I had last year over her going to school even though this year she will be gone the entire day rather than just a few hours. Will I miss her? Of course! But I’m in such a different place than I was last year at this time. So many good things have been happening and I feel like my “old self” again. It feels good.
I didn’t write any posts for August Moon during August, but I am “planning” on trying to write them in September to catch up as I really did want to participate. August got away from me, plain and simple.
This Fall will be busy. It’s Election time here in Wisconsin. The primary was in August and now the general election is November 4th. It’s a terribly important election too so I’m helping out where I can. In fact we are marching in a parade this morning. It looks like rain right now, I’m hoping we don’t get drenched during the parade!
So the Hershey Pumpkin Kisses are finally out at Target!!! I love Autumn. I love everything about Autumn. It’s a magical time. The pumpkins are ripening. What a joy to see them in the pumpkin patch at the farm. Soon the leaves will be shedding their summer attire in exchange for their Autumnal robes.
Ah sweet September, how I do adore thee. It’s going to be a fabulous Fall season. I can feel it.
Before I forget (not that I would), here is Earth, Wind and Fire singing “September” – ENJOY!
