What about you?

I don’t know about you, but I can hardly believe that we are almost done with the month of September. In less than three months we will be getting ready to face 2009, I just can’t believe it. Where did the year go? Summer came and went, without me even noticing it. It hit me today that Fall was already here. Some trees have their leaves, others are changing colours and I only noticed it this afternoon. By the time we come back from our vacation, winter will be here. Argh. I’m not ready for winter yet. I still need to soak up the sun some more. Hopefully I’ll get to do that soon.

Before that, tomorrow, our “made to measure” Murphy bed will be delivered and installed, I’m so excited about it. I can’t wait to see what it will look like. We’ve put things in storage, and can’t help to notice, once more, that we have way too much crap! I guess we do enjoy “deadlines” since we’re having the bed delivered on Monday and our guests, from Switzerland, are arriving on Friday. It’s been too long since we last saw them. I’m sure we’ll have a few late nights while they’ll be in town.

We’re trying to sell one of our cars. We put it up for sale last week. We’re only selling it because we’ve moved here. We don’t really need two cars, especially not downtown. We can take public transport or walk to many places. We really don’t want to relive last year’s experience with the snow. Having one car, in the garage, will be good and so much easier. And, it will mean fewer expenses. A little more money will be welcome.

Besides that, we buried the ashes of my mother's beau on Saturday, so that chapter is really closed. I couldn't believe that my favorite man of all times, he was "the" man for me, even in his older days, Mr. Newman is no longer. How sad...

On the work front, both Hubby and myself have lots of work, and too little time to do everything. Despite moments where I’m feeling a little overwhelmed, I’d say things are good… How about you, how are things?

I'm glad everything is going so well for you. Visiting with good friends is always a blessing.

I'm sick and stressed, but otherwise ok.

I'm only mediocre, but thank you for asking. I too cannot believe that fall is here already. I should be hearing the geese migrating soon, which is always a very melancholy sound.

I agree, it's hard to believe that summer is already gone. We're having a warm day here today but the rest of the week....yep, fall is here. Bummer.
