September, Bring on Fall!

I can't complain too much about our summer.  Yes, some hot days, and yes, a slightly excessive amount of rain, which seemed more excessive due to a leaky roof.  Those days will soon be behind us, we've been approved for a short-term loan and are calling a roofer tomorrow.  Is it sad to be so excited about something as mundane as a roof? 

So far I'm not complaining too much about our late summer weather either (well, maybe the rain when it sneaks in and finds its way into my oldest's bedroom!), since it is cool without being too cool--although there was a morning or two when the heat was turned on just to take the chill off!

While outside enjoying the wonderful pre-autumn day, my mind wandered ahead to Hallowe'en and gorgeous full-fall weather.  Then it continued on to cooler weather in November, then December...and that S-word that shall not be mentioned here yet.  And I realized that the summer really did seem to fly by, that it hadn't seemed that long since we'd finally and with great relief were able to put the s*** shovels away, and the time spent with both my daughters home was over too soon when we drove our oldest back up to Ottawa.

With the fall weather, my creativity for some reason always seems to wake itself:  instead of wondering "what am I going to do????" I find myself wondering "what am I going to do first??"

Hopefully, I will have some time to create some new designs.  I have no idea how or why, but I've had many people join my facebook group where I've listed my free patterns.   It kinda puts the pressure on--in a GOOD way!--to thank them by coming up with more free patterns.
