Bye Bye August

I am so glad THAT month is over. I never feel that way about any other month, but I get so worn down by the weather in August. I should be thankful that I don't live in Houston anymore, because September in Houston is more of the same.

I went in search of fall this morning and found a few things.

I've noticed red berries on the dogwood trees in some people's yards, plus the dogwood leaves are starting to get a little red.

It's been so humid here the last couple of weeks. I am happy for it because it means we've had a little rain. That means I have skipped watering for a few days, which I love.

This morning we stepped outside to go the bus stop and found a partial fairy ring of mushrooms in the yard. They were really tiny and very far apart so I couldn't get a decent photo. What is it about little boys that they must step on and smush every mushroom? I told him to be careful that there wasn't a fairy under it. Of course he said, *no, I looked*. . .

I took a few mushroom photos on my walk today. They were everywhere.

The flash came on because it was early and cloudy. Maybe I can get better ones another time. I saw one that looked like a nasty pile of rotting flesh. It stunk and flies were all around it. Very strange. I didn't figure I could capture the effect on film.

Tomorrow we go to Illinois to my ILs for their 50th wedding anniversary party. I wanted to make a new outfit, but I ended up going to the mall to Dillard's and buying one. It's a wrap dress, a la Diane Von Furstenburg (sp?) from the 70s, in a black/brown geometric print stretch poly knit. I think I'll go shopping for shoes today.

I hope to finish knitting the green socks in the car and then start on Fetching. I also need to go pick up the book my book club is reading next, Single in Suburbia. God, that looks horrible, I can't wait. . .

Have a good weekend y'all.

I love Fetching. I've made 2 pairs already and on to my third. I've just finished reading "The Time Traveller's Wife" by Audrey Niffeneger for my book club meeting. Highly recommend it.

Popper, I just finished that book this week. I really liked it, although I got a bit confused by the jumps in time. That would be a great book to discuss in a group.
