Where she relishes the last day of summer
How lucky can a girl get?
The forecast was for rain, which must have been amended sometime between the downpour of last night and the shaky sun of this morning, and maybe it was a warm easterly wind and maybe it’s just because the forecasters lie like a rug, but for whatever reason, we, Chloe mom and I, found a warm and welcoming day.
We headed out to the seaside market and stopped in at Whole Foods for a little breakfast and tea; coffee for mom.
C grabbed a newspaper and she and mom decided to give the crossword a go. Mom said, “Saturday crossword? You’ll be lucky to get seven.” C got 13! (OK the iphone helped…lol)
Then we went for a nice long walk beside the ocean.
What a difference a week makes. I can’t believe that we were swimming in this same ocean just a few days ago and now the only people in the water were the fishermen in their waterproof waders.
At the allotment gardens the veggies and flowers were still going strong and I spent a long time smelling each late sweet pea, rose and marigold because I wanted to capture that sweet scent, remember it and hang on to it till next time.
By midday the sun shone down warm and inviting,
and while signs of fall were all around us…
just for today, nobody cared. 🙂
