On Monday, it was +30 degrees Celsius (about 85-90 Fahrenheit, I think...?) Way too hot for me. Two days later, my daughter complained that she didn't have a good day at school because I didn't dress her warmly enough for the 13 degree temperature. Oops. So today she chose to wear a toque, neck-warmer, and gloves to school along with her fall jacket. We've certainly had an abrupt end to summer. And I couldn't be happier. Except that I really should finish off the outdoor painting I need to do. The front porch is done, but the trim around the garage door, along with the back railing are both in desperate need of fresh paint.
In the meantime, I'm thinking about baking pumpkin pies and muffins and ginger cookies, sniffing fall-scented candles at the stores (I love this White Pumpkin candle from Indigo), and even thinking ahead to Christmas decorating and shopping. I love it! Farewell Summer!
