September, by all accounts, was a busy month for me - the highlight connecting with several dear friends, with whom I worked and hadn't seen in too long (photos 15 and 16).
The month began - here in my sliver of the world - with several spectacular sunsets (2) and sunrises (3, 4 & 20). On my walks, I saw my first - and only - Morning Glory flowers (8) this year and met two cute Yorkies(23): Mia and Odette, 8 years-old. I hadn't been to my favorite outdoor sanctuary nearly all summer and the first day of Fall was just perfect for the long walk. As expected, the flowers (22) were spectacular.
Norman (25) cleans up pretty nice don't you think? I sent my niece a txt(14) : an urgent plea to come over and help me figure out a Photoshop Elements action. If I look frazzled it's because I was...and it was hot! I tried a cold brew (13) for the first time...didn't much like it; I may try again. Kayla (12) was visiting and there is a story connected with that magnifying glass that I'll have to share in another post.
We haven't been to the National Museum of African American History and Culture yet - tickets are pretty much spoken for through the first week of December (I'm going Nov 13, I think) - but we did watch the opening ceremony (24) and throughout the week, there were many TV tours presented by the local stations so we have a really good idea of the treasures we'll see. And of course, we helped the Nats celebrate the winning of their division (26) - in the comfort of home, sans the champagne!
I also spent time stitching with friends. Still working (29) on the Flower Garden quilt and every stitch brings me closer to the end. Tho' I'm making progress, I ain't there yet! Perhaps this time the end of October...I hope! My friend Pat and her daughter are also nearing the end of their year-long plus stitching project (21); it is indeed a work of art! The month ended with a Friday afternoon online Journal Club session.
So here it is October 1...and fewer than 100 days left in 2016. My, how time flies when you're having fun! October, I believe will be quieter...but only time will tell. What's up for you this month?
