Lovely September

The days smell different from Summer, especially as we step off the porch to catch the bus. A whiff of woodsmoke, damp morning fog and falling leaves all combine to make a distinct September smell. I finally sent a baby quilt off to Oregon to my cousin's first grandchild, born three months ago. I'll also enter a couple quilts in the Major's Inn Show in Gilbertsville on display the first weekend in October. It's a lovely excuse for a day trip.

September Again

School's started again and the year looks promising. J seems to enjoy his 5th grade teacher and enjoys his class except for the ratio of girls to boys, 2 to one. I've been making canvas tote bags with my wildlife designs on them. I finally retired my 20-year-old Singer that finally grinded and sputtered to a halt. I'm using R's machine and can't get over how quiet and fast it purrs along. Wheee! Bought a few pumpkins to usher in Fall. Leaves drift from the tall, front yard maples and the warm morning air smells of seasoned grass and summers' growth.

Oh, so pretty

Nice day
