Oh, maybe not on the calendar.
And the school year hasn’t actually started yet (that’s after Labor Day).
But the angle of the sun feels different.
And yesterday, the sun was out but it wasn’t hot.
And here’s the kicker…it smelled like Fall.
Every year it takes me by surprise in August (yeah, I’m old and you’d think I’d be use to it by now…it is optimisim or just denial?) when I think it shouldn’t happen until September.
It’s hard to explain it. Even if it gets warm again, the tide has turned…and no matter what the temperature says, it will still feel like Fall.
So I better just embrace it. And not dwell on all the summer clothes I didn’t have enough time to wear. You know, it just occurred to me this year why my summer clothes never seem to wear out…
Tuesday- Dinner at sister’s
Friday- Spaghetti with fresh marinara, caesar salad
Saturday- (First UO Duck game–see? It’s Fall.) Homemade Pizza
Pretty simple this week- and easy to see what I’m harvesting from the garden!
