September Sundays

22 thoughts on “September Sundays”

  1. Very nice and soothing! I enjoyed reading the lovely descriptions of nature getting ready for winter. My September has been filled with a covid funeral, rampant wildfires in both California and Oregon and heartbreaking news of Lex’s senior aunt losing her home of over twenty years to the thoughtless act of a drug addled criminal arsonist. I can’t wait for this year to be over. Honestly. – Neek

    1. I am terribly sorry to hear of these events in your lives, Neek. Covid has been wreaking havoc in my family too. Two of my uncles died in the last few weeks. Lex’s aunt losing her home because of some criminal’s callousness sounds horrid. I hope you are not troubled by the wildfires. Sending you hugs and peace for the coming weeks. Hold on Neek. xx

      1. Thank you! I am so sorry to hear about your uncles. I don’t know anyone who is not affected by this horrible virus. As for Lex’s aunt, she is now staying at his mother’s house and trying to make sense out of all this. She had only five minutes to leave her house and her pajamas to wear. All of her belongings are gone. It’s truly heartbreaking. Lex and I are luckily not in the fire zone but we smell the smoke and the sky has been hazy for a week now. I hope that you and Adi stay safe. Take care – Neek

      2. Thank you, Neek. I appreciate your words. The aunt’s plight sounds so sad. I cannot believe all her gathered memories and possessions gone in one blow. I am glad she is safe though and maybe that is a mercy. Whatever good one can forage from any situation.

        Good to know that you both are not in the fire zones. It must be so disturbing, the aur quality being affected over a prolonged period of time. I am praying you get a good spell of rain.

        You guys take care. โค

    1. Hi Caroline, thank you for your words. I am so sorry to learn about the smoke from the fires that has surely disturbed lives even more than the prevalent virus situation. Would you believe that it has travelled to the East Coast though the air quality remains unaffected because it is high above us. Anyway, I hope you are staying indoors till this tides. xx

  2. Our languid September days have been smothered in smoke for days! We’ve been homebound for over a week due to the relentless fires burning in California/Oregon and Washington…we’ve woken to a red sun this week and this morning our air quality is the worst in the world.
    Your lovely post has me dreaming of autumn pleasures…

    1. I am so sorry to hear of this Kim. It is horrible to be stuck inside with the turn in the weather. But I am hoping the rains would have eased it up a bit. It has been sobering to watch the spread of the wildfire and a bit of the haze even hung here for a few days, but really high in the atmosphere so air quality was not affected.

      Better days, of fresh air and autumnal glory, is around the corner love. xx

      1. It rained this morning (clearing some of that smoke away) and it was a joy to open our windows again…I just came in from a walk touched by autumn and I can hardly wait to enjoy that glory over the next few months!

      2. Yippee! That sounds invigorating. How we appreciate the importance of the basic necessities of life after a spell of calamities! More of these rambles in the coming weeks to make up for lost time. ๐Ÿ˜‡

  3. Gorgeous prose! Weโ€™re still some way off autumn and never quite embrace fall colours in the same way as the east coast largely because of all the evergreens. I am looking forward to the fall in temperatures, donning my 3/4 length bib shorts and cycling more than in summer. Hope youโ€™re both well and the garden is still bearing produce.

    1. Merci beaucoup. ๐Ÿ™‚ I envy you the evergreens. Their dark beauty is most soothing. At the same time I am in utterly in love with the colours of the season. Today being the autumnal equinox, we are officially in the throes of autumn. Hurrah to everything that the season brings, including bib shorts and hours of cycling.

      The tomatoes are slowing down now, but I would give them a month more. The rest are thriving. The fern has grown taller and looks more beauteous by the day. ๐Ÿ˜€ Hope your geraniums and co. are doing well. Love and hugs.
