I still operate on the school year calendar for some reason :-) It's September 1st and this always seems more like the new year to me than January 1st does. School supplies, a new outfit, new shoes . . . don't you remember how much fun that always was? And I always wanted to wear my new wool plaid skirt on the first day of school, and here in Chicagoland it was usually swelteringly hot . . . :-D (Is that a word? The spell check doesn't seem to think so . . . Oh well.)
I'm finding it hard to believe that it's actually September. This year has flown by - as mentioned some time ago, it seems like time is compressing somehow the older I get. It's almost chilly here today - but they say it will be in the 80's by the holiday weekend.
Labor Day - the traditional end of summer. No more white shoes (yes, some of us still follow that convention), although I do confess to wearing sandals after that date. Even so, it's no great loss on the white shoes, because I don't think I even have a pair any more :-D I did pull out my way cute short cowgirl boots on Saturday and stuck liners in them so they won't hurt my feet, which seem to be more and more tender lately :-( Anyway, I'm going to be wearing those shoes a lot this fall. And I need a new pair of jeans. I'd like some Levi's - real denim ones, not those ones that are that really thin fabric denim. That's what my last pair was and I didn't care for them at all.
Well, it's time for me to jump in the shower and run for the train - Happy New Year. I hope you get some really cute shoes and a new wool plaid skirt :-)
