It is difficult to live in the present, ridiculous to live in the future, and impossible to live in the past. Nothing is as far away as one minute ago.
Farewell to September days
Such days of autumnal decline hold a strange mystery which adds to the gravity of our moods. Every step that Time takes imprints upon the fields as they grown brown and bare.
This is my last post for the month of September. Time keeps moving on at it’s own pace and in it’s own way, bringing us with it into what used to be the future. Today is the present and it will soon be our past.
Our September was filled with many days that seemed quite like summer, but we have had a few days that remind us of what is coming and what is coming is colder temps and falling leaves.
We began this month with a grand Labor Day weekend which was followed by another birthday party. We were actually celebrating an August birthday in September I was able to go to this one which always make me happy as too many of my family live far away. There were a few more September birthdays in our family but they were long distance ones.
I finished up the fall decorating both inside and out. They will change a bit when November comes as then I’ll add a few for Thanksgiving.
I was able to take another trip to the farm market for fresh fruits and vegetables. I have several varieties of winter squash to bake and enjoy.
I said goodbye to one of my beloved uncles and had a funeral to attend. And one of my grand dogs also crossed the rainbow bridge. He was a joy to all who knew him.
The Autumn Equinox occurred filling everyone with hope that cooler days would soon be here. I began my Christmas countdown and started working on the gifts I’ll be making my family for Christmas.
We had several festivals going on close by and one was our hometown Apple Festival and I got my very first jug of Apple Cider. I’ve made home made applesauce and enjoyed apple slices dipped in peanut butter.
The trees started our green but are now starting to change. Slowly but surely they will all fall before winter comes.
Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves.
We’ve had our summer evenings, now for October eves!
