September is here weather I like it or not. Having spent most of August to ill to do much, I feel a tad cheated and here we are on the Roller Coaster that will take us into the Christmas holidays. For me the start of summer feels like that climb to the top of the free fall, and September first is when that decent begins and at the bottom of that hill is Christmas. Maybe it is not that way to you but it does feel that way to me. I am trying to look on the positive side and I am feeling better, just still not myself. This past week I was well enough to get up before dawn with my husband and he would take me to the beach where he walks every morning along the Seawalk and I sit on the beach breathing the salt air, sipping my tea and taking it all in.
If you follow me on social media you already know all this. I am very lucky to live so close to such beautiful and naturally peaceful settings in such turbulent times.
I went three times this week and this was the first day, just catching the sun as it rose above the Lions Gate Bridge.
The view is beautiful even when you are not facing the bridge. I have had so many things on my mind lately, the news, has not be great, my heart goes out to those who are dealing with the flooding in Asia and The USA, though you don't see much on the catastrophic floods in Asia unless you read international news. The stories of those helping others is what I look for and while I know prayers are not enough, I wish there was some real way we could help anyone in such need.
Wednesday I read The Good Witches Guide to Wicked Ways, this is actually a really old book I got at a second hand store that I enjoy having on my shelf, great tips and written with humor.
I remembered to post my review of Betty Hechtman, along with sharing the hats I made on my knitting retreat.
Thank you all for joining me here today for a cup of tea and cozy mystery week in review. I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
