and its very welcome in this house at least. I still can't believe that just Wednesday it was 90 degrees. Almost too hot. Don't get me wrong, it was my day off, so no matter what it was still a a really great day thrifting around town.Vera delivered my new chairs and we decided to make a day of it. Oh, you'd like to know more about my chairs? Well, OK. Vera had been away, off LI, and found the most amazing vintage outdoor chairs which she bought for our friend Tobes. I'm not going to lie, I was super jealous. They were exactly what I had been looking for, for quite some time now. Well, the vintage Gods must have heard me whimper because long story short, Tobes had to move, and now has no back yard, so the chairs found their way to me, and i'm over the moon. Can't wait to paint them, I'm thinking hot pink, but I don't know. I also scored a great granny square blanket, an apron circa 1970, and the most amazing flannel shirt that i've already worn twice and it's only Saturday. It is sure to be my go to cozy shirt this winter. With the iPhone 5s Launch next week, and the start of Fall Lacrosse this week, I really wanted to make the most of this beautiful Saturday, knowing perfectly well my time with my husband will be limited to a kiss good night and another kiss goodbye in the morning. While Tim was at practce I ran to get produce for my juice for the week, ran to Trader Joes to get stuff to make Autumn Squash soup, and then we headed East (of course we did). The day was bright, with the bluest of blue skies, big fluffy white clouds that seem to immediately appear in the sky as soon as Labor Day is over. It was one of those perfect days. We went to the harvest festival at Hallockville Farm, we pick apples at Lewin Farms and we drove home with the top down on the jeep and froze our butts off. Once home i fell into the comfortable habits that come every year at this time. I made soup, i turned on the oven for the first time in a really long time, and baked zucchini fresh from the farm. And I sit now, socks on my feet, the granny square blanket thrown over my legs, searching for apple recipes and watching the sky turn the colors it can only turn at this time of year, like the sky is on fire. Good bye Summer, you've been pretty kind this year, see you again next year. But I'm pretty excited, because the best is yet to come, September and October!
