...as photographed in Lower Manhattan last week.
I thought I could start to think about autumn leaves, although autumn is still a few weeks off.
Though it's time for new notebooks and pens and pencils, it still feels like summer. The phone reports that it's 96 degrees -- I think that's the hottest temperature of the summer -- and my air conditioner is going at full blast. Summer is still here.
But enough about the heat. In an instant it will be time for long sleeves and then flannel and then gloves. In another instant I will be complaining about the slush and wondering how soon until the spring.
It's the Tuesday after Labor Day and I'm happy to announce the winner of the "September Song" giveaway is Melinda at Country Dreaming. If you're not familiar with this fun blog, please stop by. I always have a good time when I visit there.
I had a great weekend, including a wonderful visit to Connecticut for an engagement party. Lovely weather, delicious food and the company was the best. So grateful to share in good times.
The trip to Connecticut was tiring though, and I'm taking today slowly. I ran a few errands and then returned home to a plumbing issue. The plumber will be here tomorrow morning and happily, I think I noticed the issue before it reached crisis proportions. Let's hope!
As ever, thanks for visiting and keep cool!
