September Song

Willie Nelson's rendition of September Song
is running through my head ...

So what's new with me? It's September 22nd, and this whole month's been a blur. Between driving Zach to Celsius' The Tempest and Citadel (artistic director's 10th anniversary celebration) rehearsals, to our 4th annual mystery party, to helping out with fund raising for David's Concert Choir trip to the UK ~ well, let's just say it's been crazy. Besides "everyday" occurrences, my mother hasn't been well since July, so I've been spending time with her ~ trying to get her to eat etc.

Although our garden was pathetic this year, my brother who always grows the most amazing garden, recently invited me out to his place and "pick beans". He gave me a lot more than a few beans, so we've been enjoying fresh stir fries and tomatoes! (mmm .. homegrown tomatoes ... always reminds me of this old song!) over the past few weeks.
Oh! Oh! ... I found another chair to paint! Here's a photo of it "before". Now if things can just slow down a bit, I can get to paint it.

September Song

Maxwell Anderson (1888-1958)
Oh it's a long long while
from May to December
But the days grow short
when you reach September
When the autumn weather
turns leaves to flame
One hasn't got time
for the waiting game
Oh the days dwindle down
to a precious few
and these few precious days
I'll spend with you
These precious days
I'll spend with you
