Yay for September! The mercury in the thermometer is falling (or at least beginning to drop,) public places are becoming more scarce with summer vacationing families and tourists, pumpkin spice everything is making its way into the marketplace like a bull in a china shop. Fall is right around the corner.
Question: do you say autumn or fall? Is there a difference? To me, autumn seems an appropriate word for the soft transition between end of summer and real fall. Fall is the time afterwards – the Thanksgiving and Halloween, cold nights and darker mornings. September is autumn, October becomes fall.
So, back in August, I started this new tradition of coming up with a list of things I/we’d like to do in the upcoming month. It’s mostly fun and games and enjoyable stuff, though some errand-y type endeavours may make their way to the list periodically. Here’s what’s on the docket for September.
- Plan engagement photos
- Make perogies with Barb
- Go apple picking
- Investigate cover crops and plant them in #myremotegarden
- Pack up spring/summer clothes, unpack fall/winter clothes
- Make my dad a birthday cake

- Organize visit from Amy & Tyson
- Read Born For This by Chris Guillebeau
- Practice handwriting
- Have a dinner party
- Swim in the ocean
- Ride our bikes

What exciting things do you have planned for September? What’s on your to do list this month?
