It was tempting to plan something to be "out and about" over the weekend, but it seemed more right to stay home and take care of a number of tasks around the house and yard. I did spend one day visiting with my cousin and watching his daughter play in a volleyball tournament. Otherwise, I simply enjoyed being home.
Both a friend and a family member attended concerts over the weekend, and they shared some new names of artists with me... they have been fun to check out. Don't you love it how you can YouTube and/or Google these folks and immediately find so much info?? If you like contemporary Folk Music, you might check out Darryl Purpose from Colorado. http://www.darrylpurpose.com/
Or check out the Canadian, Dave Gunning, singing "These Hands." http://www.davegunning.com/
So, gals, as Labor Day passes, do you put away your shorts, tank tops, and white shoes?? I'll be wearing my capri pants for as long as possible, as well as my Keen sandals. But, the chill in the morning air is telling me that I better start pulling out the long-sleeved t-shirts, sweatshirts, long pants, and my favorite knitted socks; they are coming back into season.
In previous Septembers, I well remember driving to work a little after 7:00 a.m. with the heater blowing... and driving home in the late afternoon with the air-conditioning. And so... September has arrived again. Who knows what little surprises she is packing.

Another favorite poem is "maggy and milly and molly and may" by e.e. cummings. I've taken the last line for the pillow.
maggy and milly and molly and may
went down to the beach(to play one day)
and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,and
milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;
and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and
may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.
For whatever we lose(like a you or a me)
its always ourselves we find in the sea

So, guess who's helping themselves at the bird feeder?
These little guys are funny to watch. I don't know how in the world they found their way out to my neighborhood though. They must have been stow-a-ways on somebody's delivery truck...
