Anticipating September

August…could have been better. We had a lot of fun for Anya’s birthday, but the rest of the month was kind of a wash. But September is approaching, and with it come so many of my favorite things: Fairs. Cooler weather. The promise of fall. With any luck, I will be feeling better soon and can get back to crafting and baking — I have a bag of apples in the fridge just itching to be made into a crumble.

Loving:

Summer is not quite done with us yet, but the temperatures are wandering downward. Keep going, guys — you know the way.

Reading:

Between the head full of gunk and the sleeplessness…nada. Farm Heroes Super Saga is too mentally taxing for me lately.

Watching:

Still hanging in Neptune. I’ve finally made it to Hearst College.

Listening to:

I’ve been digging this stripped-down version of “In Your Eyes.”

Working on:

Surviving. And in quiet moments after the kids are asleep, I tap out sentences, paragraphs, even passages into a text file on my phone. I may not be working on my book, per se, but I’m amassing a junk drawer of pieces parts to flesh out the existing chapters with.

Anticipating:

Kai was too little to enjoy the fair last year. I am looking forward to introducing it to him this year.

Making me happy:

Today is my BFF’s birthday. Hope you’re having a good one, Danedane. Love you big much.

  1. Anticipating September…. me too. August has not been great here either :-| I’m feeling awash with stacked-up blog posts, but maybe…. Maybe I’ll just ‘borrow’ your title, Nicole – and start looking forward with anticipation instead of looking back at what still needs to be done :-)
