Why wait until now to celebrate the arrival of September? Because now it finally feels like it!
Last week it was still hot and humid here, up to 90 degrees some days. Those days make me feel like going outdoors for only short periods of time, running from one air conditioned space to the next. But this morning dawned clear and cool, without the stifling humidity. This is how September should be!
Everyone says that Labor Day is the "official" end of summer. But it isn't. The real last day of summer is the autumnal equinox, which comes later in the month. So, in my mind it is still summer. Forget those who say not to wear white after Labor Day. If it's 90 degrees outside, I'm still wearing my white shorts!
