Hello September

Four Seasons fill the measure of the year;
There are four seasons in the mind of man:
He has his lusty Spring, when fancy clear
Takes in all beauty with an easy span:
He has his Summer, when luxuriously
Spring's honey'd cud of youthful thought he loves
To ruminate, and by such dreaming high
Is nearest unto heaven: quiet coves
His soul has in its Autumn, when his wings
He furleth close; contented so to look
On mists in idleness—to let fair things
Pass by unheeded as a threshold brook.
He has his Winter too of pale misfeature,
Or else he would forego his mortal nature.
John Keats

Good morning everyone. Sure is dark out there. Sure sign that September is here, and fall is on its way. Love being able to watch the sunrise, but something tells me this is a stormy weather darkness, not a change of the seasons one. May have to change some of my plans today. I do have to get to Rite Aid to pick up my meds and, of course, cannot miss my Weight Watchers meeting, but the library may have to be put off for another day. Only necessary errands get done in the rain.
Hello September.  A new season is about to begin.  School is right around the corner.  Counting the days now.  Funny thing.  I walked out of school on my 18th birthday, 3 months before I was due to graduate high school.  Oh, the things we do in our youth!  Now, in my cronehood, I just can't seem to get enough of school.  I love it.

Other than that, not much news here. Sent for my fall curtains and tablecloth yesterday. Also ordered some wonderful fall scented candles. Love those cool, quiet Autumn evenings at home. Oh yes, before I forget. Had my first chicken leg last night. The dentist was right. The bones are melding into a part of my mouth, and so much less pain. My mouth continues to improve but complete improvement is still a bit down the road. For now I am happy with what I can do. Gone are those hopeless feeling first weeks afterwards.

Have a good one.


  1. Yes, the days are getting so much shorter now, aren't they? And yay for your first chicken leg!

  2. You just reminded me...time to get out my little bits of fall decor. Enjoy the new season.

  3. I just love September. I remember how something clicked while watching you ve got mail and they were talking about bouquets of freshly sharpened pencils. Happy September. .

  4. Glad your mouth is getting better...takes time and patience...not easy...

    Daylight comes later here also and it is difficult to get going when it is dark...time change will make it even worse...wish they would stop that stupid practice of time change...
