I can’t put my finger on what it is, but it feels like there’s a change in the air around here lately. Despite the fact that hooligan #1 kept his regular pre-school schedule for the last three months, there is definitely a sense this week of summer being over and the return of schedules, order, and routine. Maybe it’s the fact that I started a class on Digital Design last night at the local community college and I’m getting sucked up into that “back-to-school” frame of mind. It could be that hubby and I have started making some very fun long-term plans for the future of CQ and I’m just excited about the direction we’re heading.
It could be that it’s weirdly feeling like fall in the region. There has been a lovely “autumn crisp” in the morning air and without even thinking about it, I’ve started drinking hot coffee in the morning and have stopped icing my tea in the afternoons. Our poor drought-stricken trees are all shutting down for the season in a last-ditch effort at self-preservation. The leaves are changing color and dropping as if Halloween was next week! Our neighborhood lawns – ours included! – have been brown for months thanks to water conservation efforts.
I’m not trying to be coy or set the stage for some big announcement … I just have a pleasant feeling of anticipation of good, good things to come … if nothing more than the beginning of my very favorite season. Probably related, I also have this weird longing to dig out the holiday projects and work on some Christmas sewing all of the sudden! In that spirit, how about a little August flash sale on Christmas Fabric!
