This is not my picture though I think it is GORGEOUS! I got it from a Google search. As our heatwave continues I am given hope by the turning of the calendar from August to September! It is almost Autumn - my most favorite time of the year! Cooler temperatures are within reach. So are apple cider, a trip to the orchard for apple picking, the pumpkin patch, Halloween, Thanksgiving, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and the cheerful, warm lights of Christmas decorations. In other words, LOTS of family fun! Yes, in my opinion we're on the threshold of the most wonderful time of the year! So, I say thank you and goodbye to August; Hello September!
