The Autumnal Equinox officially arrived this morning at 3:50 am, EST. Despite my desire to be wide awake then, I wasn’t nor did I make plans to get up quite that early. In fact, I even overslept, getting up about 7: 15 am… AND, I actually spent MSQT in my craft studio rather than the Great Room (aka dining room/kitchen). Why? Today was the first Mindful Monday session – a 10 week’s program created and led by Jamie Ridler, the convener of Friday afternoon Journal Club – which resumes this Friday, Yay! Actually, I have spent most of today at the computer – between two sessions with Jamie and catching up with email, etc. We did take time out to bag leaves for tomorrow’s pickup…and you know, it’s hot out; currently 91° F. Yuk! Plus, looks like it’s going to rain.
Yesterday was our monthly Friendstitching gathering…and we celebrated Pat’s birthday! Lunch was delicious: shrimp, rice, salad, breads, fruit and mimosas plus delicious dessert. It is our practice that the hostess gives us each a tchotchke; we got that delightful fall dishtowel… On my walk yesterday evening, I ran across the sidewalk chalk art and thought of the towel. Pretty close match.

Happily the weekends heat have dissipated and this morning it is wonderfully cool! I do so love fall days!
Sounds like a great way to welcome fall, Honoré. We’ve had lingering hot weather lately, too . . . although yesterday a cool blast found it’s way to my corner of the world. Hope it’s headed your way!
I hope first day of autumn is not an indicator if the way the season will roll. I am looking forward to watching the fall yearbook video this afternoon. Enjoy your writing time.
The towel is adorable.
YAY for fall …. and it finally feels a bit like fall today.
The towel really is cute and I love the chalk art! Still warmish here, but the evenings are so pleasant! Love it.
