Hurry, Autumn... is so hot here!
I shouldn't really be complaining, but it is hot. Not quite sidewalk melting hot or thunderstorm at four in the afternoon hot like Nashville, but it is still hot. It is too hot to stand in an unairconditioned subway car as I did this morning. The heat should let up in a few days and the apartment feels great, but at least a few times today I started to think about apples and sweaters and the coming of the beautiful autumn.
Updates! I have lost half a pound. Not monumental, but the scale is going in the correct direction.
I have emailed for tickets to Saturday Night Live, Martha Stewart and Rachel Ray and no word, though I got a very nice form response from Martha Stewart. Don't Martha and Rachel like me? I know I would be a good guest. Will keep you posted.
Thank you all for your nice comments about the Boston trip. I don't think I am especially brave, but I feel quite comfortable in most places for a few days by myself. After that I get lonely and desperately start to wish for friends to eat dinner with and chat about the sights.
Wishes to all for a sweet and healthy week, and of course prayers for Amy!

Ha! See what the heat does to a person? Thinking about autumn is self-preservation!

Um, about that half-pound you lost? I think you sent it to me. Because I gained half a pound. LOL.

High five gal on the half pound loss! That is right, the scale is moving in the right direction and we'll take it, won't we!!

I hope you get to visit at least one of those shows...I would prefer Rachael Ray myself.

I wish you a bright and happy day!☼

I would love to see Rachel and Martha.

And it is hot here in Georgia too - it's our most difficult season - thank God for a/c. The rest of the seasons are great.

Oooohhhhh....I would love to see either one of those shows! What an exciting life you lead!

I have to say that I DONT crave autumn. I never get too hot in the summer (even here in Alabama), but I absolutely FREEZE when the temp drops below 70. My only trip to NY was December before last and I nearly froze to death!

I'm glad you're having a great summer though (albiet a hot one). Good job on that 1/2 pound!

Hope you get those tickets. I'm ready for autumn too, just not winter that always somehow finds it's way after.
