It Feels Like Autumn, Thus I Am Compelled To Post This Quote

"What'll we do with ourselves this afternoon?" cried Daisy, "and the day after that, and the next thirty years?"

"Don't be morbid," Jordan said. "Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall."


~~ F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Truer words were never spoken!!!

OK, that's not true, but it feels that way over here where temps are still in the upper 90's, and this polar bear (as my husband lovingly calls me) is waiting for fall - and not very patiently!

It's still not crisp here. Feels more like the beginning of August. Supposedly it's supposed to crisp up this weekend. Then I can start knitting in earnest again.
