upstairs / downstairs

solo post - L, iphone/Nikon

By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer's best of weather And autumn's best of cheer. -Helen Hunt Jackson

This time of year the shadows dance lively as I get ready for work. I see them upstairs and downstairs. I'm lucky that I don't have leave for work before the sun rises - I get to see the pretty light show on my walls. I love how the house has a cool autumn feel in the morning too. We're moving into my favorite season. What about you? Do you look forward to cooler days ahead or are you wanting to hang on to the summer?

That is gorgeous light ... as I wrote my comment about the light, I found myself " talkin lak " a character in a Tennessee Williams play.

Nice way to set the mood.

I want to hang on to summer a little longer. I miss my kids when they go off to school. :(
