September is one of my favorite months. The cooler nights, the change in the light, back to routine, and cooking and baking. Days all to myself to garden or sew or go shopping . Except this year I am officially an empty nester. My youngest has gone off to college and even though I am use to his being away most of the summer, this is different. No more football practice or sitting on ice cold bleachers, no more concession stand duty. No more stinky practice clothes that need to be washed every night. No more ravenous appetite to keep satisfied, dirty dishes everywhere, homework nagging or just general all purpose nagging. I feel a little at loose ends, kind of sad.
I think tomorrow I better make a list.
