The St. Lawrence River, seen from Clayton, N.Y.
My last post was a hello post and this is a good-bye post. It's good-bye to summer, 2019. September is still warm in New York City, but I anticipate that my electric bills will begin to shrink as the air conditioner is less used. I don't anticipate wearing a jacket for at least several weeks, but soon my short-sleeve t-shirts will be washed and put away and long sleeves will take their place. I haven't seen any pumpkins at the farm stands I visited in Connecticut today, but I did buy my first apples of the season. I'm not rushing ahead, but I am looking ahead to all the activities of the fall.
A favorite view -- the St. Lawrence River and K's dock
Last Saturday night I was enjoying the last Saturday before Labor Day in one of my favorite towns, Clayton, N.Y. The weather was perfect and in my entire week away, there was only one day of rain. I enjoyed sunny days on the St. Lawrence River and during my visit to Canada. It was a great end to summer with lots of time with favorite people, a great concert in Clayton and a fabulous quick trip to Ottawa. Ottawa deserves a post of its own, which I hope to do during September.
The National Gallery of Canada
I spent a great afternoon at the National Gallery of Canada. I began with the show of Gaugin Portraits and finished the visit with one of the best photography shows I've ever seen, featuring the work of Dave Heath. I was unfamiliar with his work, but will seeking out anything else I can find. I hoped to buy a guide, but sadly for me, they were sold out.
I'm now happily home and once again enmeshed in home activities. Weight Watchers -- a few too many treats while I was away -- the routine of my Y Yoga and water aerobics starting next week again, physical therapy and getting ready for my team's annual walk in October for caregivers for people with dementia in Manhattan. I'll be getting back to blogging regularly, too. I have several books to share and I'll also be working on my mystery blog, Coffee Light and Mysteries (Mostly) Noir.
As ever, thanks for visiting and wishes for a great weekend! Blog friends in the path of Dorian, prayers for safety.
