Even though January is the beginning of the new year, September often feels like the month with hope and prospects. A new school year! Getting back to the projects put on hold over the summer! Buying those farm fresh vegetable and waiting for the fall ones to be on board. Lessons gear up! Work meetings reconvene! Holding on to 3 more weeks of summer! Hoping the weather will be warm enough to continue those outdoor activities. Enjoying the last remnants of the summer garden before the cleanup begins. Wearing the summer whites a week longer as Labour Day occurs later in the month- even though I have been told the white rule doesn't exist anymore! Waiting awhile before going through the closet for fall and winter clothes. But I do use some tops year round as I love to wear colours. Never really liked the black, black and black thing that gets worn year round! Black does not really make one look slimmer!! September can bring renewel depending on how August and July flowed! A birthday and the wait for a new family member! Hope and love for good times ahead! What are your plans for September? How do you see it unfolding?

Hard to believe how many years have passed since Diana died. The People's Princess! The sea of flowers in London! August 31, 1997! Too young! Just 36 years old! We remember what we were doing when we heard the news!

Even though we have 3 more weeks of summer, August ending always feels like summer ending. Stop it- we have 3 more weeks of summer. Get out and enjoy. Do that last August trip. Go to a market. Go to a pool! Enjoy! Admire your garden. The last legs of summer.

Regardless of new technology and advances, women give birth to babies. So if on the subway or in a store, be considerate to pregnant women. They are creating a new human being. Remember after the baby is born, the Mommy needs time to heal. Hot meals, spend time with the baby to give her time to shower or sleep or whatever else may be needed to give support during the first few months. Many Dads too need lots of support especially if there are older children. The rule for Mommy is to sit if able or to lay down to rest the body.
