I'm trying to wrap my head around the fact that it's September. September usually means the start of school, new school clothes, beginning new activities, baking with apples, raking of leaves, slowly shutting down the garden and of course football. It's really odd when September doesn't "look" like it used to. I have no more school children at home, no more back-to-school clothes shopping to do. Maybe that's a good thing. The weather is not cooperating here either. It's been over 100 for a couple of weeks. There are certainly no leaves to rake in my little California yard. That's alright, I've done my share. Gardens don't shut down here. They just keep on keeping on. Football does/has begun and I certainly can still bake. That could be a problem, though. I think I need to redefine Fall and come up with new traditions. But, alas, the Fall decorating still happens. Need to get that box down. . . HONEY! . .
