Summer is ending

How does this happen every year?? Summer starts on June 21st and it seems like the days are long and slow for July. Then poof...August 1st and bam..August is over. School starts for some middle of August and most by Labor Day.  The days are getting shorter [that is the part I really dislike] and the cool dry air arrives heralding fall.  Sigh.

Back to school time, Fall weather, smells of fall evening campfires, fireplaces, sweaters and long pants.  Many fond memories of school days and holiday anticipation all rolled together.  There are four seasons to a year, 90+ days in each.  Which do I love the most? ALL of them for various reasons.  But Fall may be my first favorite because I always think of it as new beginnings.

New beginnings are in line for ths Fall.  The shoppe is lining up some new ideas and using up our available supplies.  The end of September Judith Marquis from Canada will visit and teach a class on Hand Embellisments for your projects.  Mark your calendar for TUESDAY [yes] September 28th .  Full details will be available in another day. 

SAGA's 31st National Convention is September 22nd to 26th in Norfolk Va.  The shoppe will be closed that week so that I might attend.  Here is hoping that we have good fall weather and no storms that week.  Hurricane season is in full force...we can't be unaware of that.

See...now I feel like October starts tomorrow...time just keeps flying.  I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day holiday and that school starts smoothly for all.  Besides new beginnings at the shoppe, my family will be relocating in the weeks to come.  It is making for very busy days and nights.  NEW BEGINNINGS ... new challenges.
