Almost from the moment the calendar page flipped over to September, the mornings and evenings have felt a hint of a chill. At least one night this week there was more than just a hint. We had all of the bedroom windows open, and woke up to discover it was 48F degrees out there. (And plenty cold inside, too – brrr!) And yet, by Noon, it was summer again, and climbing into the high 70s.
September is seasonally confused, as am I. I welcome the chill, but am I truly finished with summer? I can’t decide. I’ve got one foot in each season.
This week, I indulged the Autumn foot with a trip to the NJ Sheep and Fiber Festival, and some knitting. A few days later, the other foot insisted we take an early evening trip down the shore, where we could relax for an hour or so on the beach with a good book.
I feel the pendulum starting to swing back towards an Autumnal mood right now. When I’m done here, I think I will make myself a nice maple latte with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Cheers!
It’s a roundup of the little (and big!) moments I have captured all week. Some of these images are posted on Instagram, but many aren’t posted anywhere but here. Some days there may be no photos, and other days there may be multiples.
TWiP: Scones and a Birthday Boy (2020) I ate more scones than usual this week. And Aidan turned 20. Those of you who have been here since 2007 remember when he was a little soon-to-be second-grader picking wineberries in the yard... time really does fly!
Clayathon Sale 💚💖💙💗 (2017) It's going to take some time and effort to get all of my Clayathon goodies individually photographed, tagged, and cataloged. If you buy one of them first and save me the trouble, I'll give you a discount in return. Have a look!
TWiP: the least I could do (2015) Aidan turned 15 on Thursday (yikes!) and I got a new laptop. This, in fact, is my first blog post from the new computer. So far, so good.
Weekend Favorites (2014) Happy last day of February! Here are some photos and links to entertain you :-)
Fun with chalk (2013) I had a little good, clean (messy) fun today.It started on Twitter, as all good things do,
More stripey goodness (2008) I lulled myself to sleep last night, thinking about how best to get the stripey look I started to
PLEASE NOTE: I've temporarily disabled shopping at Polka Dot Cottage, due to a flurry of fake orders which are a burden to a small business like mine. While the shop is closed, if you would like to place an order, please contact me directly, and I will be happy to help you! --Lisa Dismiss
