So it’s officially the first day of autumn. And what’s happening here in the land of the grumbling bumble? A nice, soft, summer rain, the kind that makes you want to stay indoors and read a good book, maybe have a little nap. It’s a good thing, as a certain ex-felon domestic diva would say.
Fall is a good time to reflect, to think about what’s been happening this year, and what we’re hoping will still happen before we welcome 2015. Lots of busy times coming up. Students from kindergarten through college are getting down to the real work of the semester. Factories are geared up and fully staffed. Football season is in full swing. Baseball is roaring toward the World Series.
And let’s not forget there are plenty of holidays, both big and small, to plan for. Rosh Hashanah begins tomorrow at sundown. Halloween (quite a difference there, I’ll admit) will soon bring ghosties, goblins and ghouls to our doors. Let us not forget Thanksgiving, a day of gratitude for all our blessings. And of course, the big one — Christmas. Feasts, gatherings and parties abound in the next few months.
So much to do, so little time. As of this writing, Christmas is “only” three months and two days away.
But today, just for today, let’s relax. And enjoy a nice summer rain
