Tuesday 1230 pm

Today is a beautiful late end of summer day. A light breeze blowing, those horrible winds of a few days ago are a distant past. The sun is bright and hot, the breeze has a cool edge to it, you know something is up. We went for a walk along the old highway that winds its way through the hills above our town and along the waterway. It is a favorite of mine this time of year and the place did not let me down. Dried out grasses flanked the roadside, a brave lonely sweet pea was still blooming in the sweet pea patch. Tree leaves are turning golden yellow and starting to rustle in the breeze. Anisette is drying out and the air is fragrant with licorice. Tiny treasures laying on the tarmac road waiting to be discovered are sometimes easily overlooked. I prepare myself for entering the world of work and being busy these next 3 days after having had some time off. I hope you all have a good rest of the week.

  3. Hi Lorrie,
    It's hard to believe that it's the "end" of summer, especially since ours has really just started. Ours could last until December anyway so who knows what will happen!

    Love the picture of the berries!

    Thank you for the sweet post post below. I left a message but I don't see it there so I'm guessing it didn't go through okay. I am so happy that you love your dolls. I really enjoyed making them for you too.

    Have a wonderful day.

  4. i am just not ready for summer to end- i do love fall but i can wait a bit. i am trying to remember anisette drying out from our days lived in Washington state- i adore that fragrance.

  5. What a descriptive picture you paint. I can almost smell the anisette even though I don't know what it is!
