Welcoming September Afternoons

Cool mornings, make for glorious September afternoons.

September is my favourite month of the year.   I especially like how the September afternoon sun streams through my front door and across my  living room floor.  The ninth month of the year is warm, the grass is still green, and here and there I find hints of Autumn as the trees begin to change colours.  Look skyward and it is the most vibrant bright blue.

During the last week before school begins, I try to help the children straighten their bedrooms and get their clothing sorted and accessible for the chaos of school mornings.  I haven't put away any summer clothing yet, as I am hopeful that the kids will be wearing shorts and a tee shirt for at least the first few weeks of class.   Though, I know most mornings will require a sweater or light coat, as they head down the street to catch the bus to school.  Yet, by afternoon the sun will have warmed the day to temperatures that remind us of those lazy, hazy days which have just passed. 

Our street once again returns to its silent serenity, as bikes and balls are silenced until after 3:30 in the afternoon, when the children come off the bus with their sweaters tied around their waists.    Spending the day at the beach becomes a distant summer memory, and is exchanged for walks to and from the bus stop.

By late September, we may take an afternoon trip to an orchard to pick up apples, bringing home a bushel of crisp apples - perfect for eating and baking.




September afternoons are some of the most beautiful of the whole year.  I can not wait to welcome each and every one of them and soak up all that they have to offer!

Fall is my favourite time of year! It's not too hot, not too cold...just perfect and I love the changing trees! I can't wait to go apple picking with the kids soon too :)

Amen! I can't wait for Fall. I always say if Spring, Summer and Fall were siblings Spring is the pretty sister and Fall is the football star brother. Summer falls under the ugly duckling - lots of good hidden under the sweat, heat and humidity!

August is my favourite month because of the cooler mornings and evenings but still stinking hot in the day. I don't care what anyone says... I love the heat and even the humidity!

Funny, Our neighborhood gets a million times busier come September, thanks to two near by high schools.

I have to say August is probably my favorite month...

Okay, thought I am not looking forward to my little one going on the school bus and off to school every day, I am looking forward to the nice, cool weather. There's something about September that is so beautiful. The crisp morning air, the fragrances from the trees and plants, and the gentle sunshine...perfect.

Thanks for sharing this post. Love it!
