Hooray, we made it through that grueling, ferocious, steaming hot month that is August! It helped a lot to have a trip to Hawaii there in the middle of it. I must remember that for next year.
I am so happy that it’s September. September means school supplies and plaid, falling leaves and apples, the beginning of my very favorite season: autumn. Never mind that I live in Austin, and it will still be hot and dry, and the leaves won’t turn colors, and it will be far too warm for tights and boots for a while. I am declaring it September, and creating my own autumn.
My plan for fall includes:
- dresses and tights and boots
- knee-high striped socks
- baking lots of goodies
- decorating our tiny place for fall, and halloween, and christmas
- candlelight dinners
- having friends over for dinner
- long evening walks
- celebrating equinox and solstice
I’m sure I’ll add more to that list, but as it is, I’m pretty excited. I plan to decorate a little for the seasons, though I really can’t do much, because our place is so tiny and I can’t store decorations. So I’m thinking of things that will have an end… tiny pumpkins on the stairs that will eventually be eaten by squirrels, candles on the windowsills that will someday burn out, fall flowers and of course, twinkle lights. What is life without twinkle lights?
If you have any autumn plans, I’d love to hear about them. Happy September, everyone!
