Unlike many who are mourning the end of summer as the calendar turns to September 1st, I am welcoming a dear old friend. I love fall and September is a wonderful time for me. This feels more like the time for new beginnings than any other time of the year.
I look forward to the impending cooler days and nights, the comfy clothes in rich tones of browns, golds, reds and greens. And yes, soon it will be boot season ;)
And last night mom had a sweet reunion with one of her old friends. She hasn't seen her since February. P came with us to the hospital the day of Moms mastectomy and stayed until they wheeled Mom into the O.R. and then drive Auntie home. The next day she became seriously ill and has been in a variety of hospitals and rehabs. I tried to visit her when I could and one of her fears was that she wouldn't get to see mom again. But last night she was finally able to visit. It was a very sweet moment.
As for me, I have just been puttering around all weekend. Kind of like one of those crazy flies that can't seem to light in one place very long. A little hooking, a little knitting, a little cooking - but nothing for very long.
I thought I was smart to start hooking a few holiday rugs but I can't seem to get my mind into it. I want to hook fall leaves and pumpkins - not snowmen. But I will try and finish this one first. If I put it aside and start something else I am always scared I will never get back to it.
I hope you are all enjoying your long weekend. I am :)
