Welcome to September

I am home from my wonderful, indulgent and fun week in Northern New York. While the weather didn't get as cool as I'd hoped -- love those first sweater nights -- the nights were great for sleeping without an air conditioner. There was a breeze every morning and it was lovely. It doesn't feel as though there will be a breeze in New York City for months.

I drafted a long post for tonight. But I reread it and it needs some work, which I will do tomorrow. I've made my list of things I hope to get done this week. I'm not sure how many I will get to, as the Jewish New Year begins on Wednesday night and that's not a time for errands. But I feel rested and relaxed and tomorrow will be a time to accomplish a number of my back-to-New York errands.

I'm happy to report that the third time was a charm and I had an easy travel day. No delays -- we got in a half hour early -- and record time getting home. Tonight I'm going through my mail -- a lovely blogger gift was part of it -- and will spend some time reading. I read every night on vacation and that's a habit I want to keep.

Wishes for a great Labor Day and thanks for visiting!

Another trip to NY is on our list because we've fallen in love with the state and there is still so much to explore. Your trip got us thinking about that area. So much to see, so little time! Glad your travel day was "boring!!"

You sound so relaxed and happy! Retirement is good on you! I, too, love to read and must do it each night or I cannot unwind enough to sleep.
