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.
Coffee and Keyboard 3 (2019) I cranked out a new volume of my Coffee and Keyboard series this weekend. C&K playlists are 2 hours long, and feature upbeat instrumentals in a variety of styles. The idea is to help you focus without putting you to sleep.
Quiet Time Eight! (2018) For bedtime, for daydreaming, for working at your desk on a Tuesday afternoon, there is Quiet Time 8: the newest hour-long playlist in the series.
TWiP: Stopover (2017) I started off this week sneezing my head off, and ended it with a newly-minted sweater.
Good mail day (2014) Guess who is in the latest issue of Artful Blogging :-)
