Summer is coming to an end in western Newfoundland; cooler nights and changing leaves are as sure a sign as the calendar. And while I love Autumn, I am reticent to say goodbye to summer. It’s never quite long enough for me because I know fall will come and go in the blink of an eye and then long winter will arrive. But before that beauty sets in, let’s stay focused on the beauty of this dying season.
I took my daily walk one early evening last week just after two days of rain had finally stopped and the blessed sun came out blazing. It was at the perfect angle when I reached ‘the promenade’ as the sun shining on the green trees behind the tall birch and spruce created the most amazing glow. Magic!
We had mostly cloudy nights during the end of the month when the super blue moon was to be seen. But I did manage to snap this rather inferior but still quite dramatic photo. August was a good month!
August was good to me at the thrift stores. Here are my top finds:
- The complete series of “The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel” by Michael Scott
- This gorgeous 4 piece cannister set
- 100% cotton/linen tunic in a gorgeous golden sunflower color with really pretty detail down the front-sides.
- 100% cotton maxi dress with this lovely pink cotton-ribbon edging detailing.
And one of my favorite memories of this month was a trip I took with my oldest friend, blood sisters since we were 10 years old. She with her replaced hip, me with my crunchy knees and orthotics, both with our walking sticks, we creaked and puffed and cackled all the way round our wee hike and picnic.
I don’t know about you, but I can feel a busy September in store as the harvests come in.
Until we meet again, keep healthy, active and happy. Namaste, y’all!
