It always amazes me how quickly the seasonal change happens ... At least here and where I grew up in New England. No sooner did we get back to school -- two days after Labor Day (the first Monday in Setember) but the thermometer dropped, summer clothes were forgotten and Fall clothes were to the front of the closet, with winter coats at the ready!
Well, this is southern France I'm happy to say and the process is not quite so quick -- some lovely warm days are forecast for the coming days, even though the signs are here that summer is getting ready for bed... last night we lit the first fire since I've been here and went to sleep under the duvet. Tonight will be the same.
For those of you who may be wondering about Part 2 of 'The Cat's Meow'... I'm planning to finish it off when back in the UK with my laptop and a decent broadband connection so that I can post a l
short video of the little critter. This would be impossible using the cell phone. We leave for England on September 13th and will arrive home on the 15th. Our two sons are now at the house and will be there for about a week. One will then be off for a romantic adventure in Vancouver, Canada and the other returning home to Italy. Around the same time my stepson will be heading of with the Territorial Army for Afganistan, while my third son remains in Korea.
It all makes me feel a bit 'ho' and a bit 'hum'! Not only that, but any day now somebody will start reminding us of how many shopping days it is until (scream, scream, scream)!!!
Please forgive any typos and editorial faux pas ... Using a cell phone touch pad is somewhat challenging!
