My work week is winding down - just one day to go and the last two days not quite as long as the first two.The summer seems to be winding down too. After a killer hot dry summer we are having milder mornings and warm wet afternoons. Shoal Creek flows with water rather than lying cement barren. Green has once again begun to occur naturally around here. It's been months - since early May - that I have seen local, unwatered green growth. And the normal late summer evening sounds are back - cicadas and toads. The temperature will be in the low nineties when the kids go back to school next week - bearable for sure but still short sleeve weather - too warm for cute fall clothes. I wonder what it would be like to live in a climate where one really could comfortably wear fall clothes on the first day of school.

Your comment on the fall clothes for the first day of school made me smile. I so remember everyone wanting to wear new fall clothes for school -- and those who did just wilting in the hottest weeks of the year as school started in September. Even back them we were victims of advertising I guess. I so like the more casual approach to school clothes these days and when my kids were young. Makes so much more sense!

How I remember wanting to wear my new pleated wool skirts and matching sweaters on the first day of school. Even in NJ, summer had a way of lasting through the first weeks of school....or later.

I don't know where that would be, Victoria. Not here for sure. Shorts will be the outfits for most kids for a few weeks after school starts, unless some unusual weather comes through....which CAN certainly happen.
