Labour Day. The unofficial end of summer. This week my girl starts school. I think I'm more nervous about it than she is. Will she be ok? Get along with the teacher? The kids? I hope so.
For me, that means a few hours to myself. What will I do with it? Well, I hope to read a lot. I have several books in mind. I have a few reviews to do and challenges to catch up on. I'm looking forward to reading a spooky story for Carl's RIP2 Challenge, while watcing the leaves change colour.
The scrapbooking I said I was going to do never happened so I have that too. I did get a new printer, a Canon Selphy CP720. It's awesome and I have no excuses now.
I do want to start some kind of regular exercise. I'm sadly out of shape and since I moved out of my old house I haven't used my treadmill at all. At least I can read while I'm on it. And on lovely fall days I can throw on my music and walk in the fresh air.
I can't wait for the Honey Crisp apples to arrive at the Farmers' Markets. I already bought a bag of beets that have to be pickled. I love homemade beets.
Oh, I can go get a haircut...during the day...without begging for a babysitter. Or a cup of coffee with the hubby or a friend. Wahoo!
I'm a simple girl and you can see that I have simple wishes. It all looks so pretty in my head. I hope I can recreate it in real life!
"Hey hey hey,
Ba de ya - say do you remember
Ba de ya - dancing in September
Ba de ya - never was a cloudy day"
