A Rainy Friday in August

Call me crazy but I caught the scent of fall in the air today. I walked down the driveway to get the mail and somewhere behind the smell of rain and wet grass, I smelled autumn. Yeah, I know I'm jumping the gun but I can't help it. Two more weeks of August and then it will be September and my sluggish summer brain will finally kick into gear.

That, at least, is the plan.

My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being, hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint.

I must agree totally with you Barbara. The past few evenings here have been a tad crisp.

I want to be wherever y'all are because here in SC, it has been the hottest summer I think we've ever had. Triple digits several times this week!

I cannot wait for Fall, it's my favorite time of year!

I hear d the crickets the other night. And I did smell autumn in the early morning air. And I am a bit further south. I hope autumn comes because that means rain.

Out in sunny California I always smell the first scent of Fall in August sometime. It has not been there yet! I am waiting patiently. One of my favorite times!

Same here in Chicago with the sudden weather vibe of Fall. And I didn't like it one bit! lol

I'm a sister blogger who's climbing up the hill toward getting my first book "out there" and am just starting to do so online as an ebook.

I'm sort of on a mission to find people who would read it and write a short review I can use. In gratitude, I'll feature your link at 3 of my sites.

If you have any interest/time, just drop me a line.

Best,

Viqi French
