Hello September!

Goodbye hot miserable August, hello delightful cool fresh September!

Dear September,

I know you’ll have your heatwaves. After all, you come along right at the tail end of a long hot summer. But you also have your wonderful cold fronts straight from Alaska. You might even have rain. You dress yourself in orange and red as the trees start to change color (although here in southern Cali, your colors linger until Christmas!)

I love the ripening pumpkins, and the school buses, and doing schoolwork with the munchkins. There’s also a certain smell, and I’m not sure what it is. The lawns going dormant? The leaves starting to turn and fall? September, your perfume is a sheer delight.

September, I love you. But I’m afraid I love October more. So let’s keep this relationship short–say, a month long?
