Good-bye summer 2021. Hello Fall 2021. There are some people who actually love Fall. They like warm fires on cool nights, hot chocolate, pumpkin spice everything….. To me it is just an approach to the end of the year. So enjoy it while you can, the colours are short lived as we head towards winter.

For those who are young at heart and in love today is Proposal Day!

For those who are unlucky at love, today is National Ice Cream Cone Day.

Finally the first day of Fall (I always thought it was September 21st).

A bouquet of leaves that have already turned red hold today’s “Quote of the Day”. My mother always said the shorter version: Whatever’s worth doing is worth doing well. This phase has often prevented me from just doing things. If I can’t do something well I tend not to just get the job done. So somedays I need to just tuck this quote aside and ” Just do it”.
