tomorrow is the first day of fall…in meteorological terms.
back in the day, meteorologists split the calendar up by months to distinguish the seasons.
meteorological summer is june, july, august.
meteorological autumn is september, october, november.
kind of logical, huh?
cooler temperatures are finally here in the pacific northwest after out hottest meteorological summer on record!
yesterday, i spent a lot of the day cleaning up the backyard from the windstorm that hit over the weekend. i also trimmed back my hanging baskets and would like to add some pansies and other flowers/plants that might make it through the winter.
i cleaned off the outdoor chalkboard to get it ready for our annual first day of school photos which will happen in one week!
i am also preparing lists of all the projects that i have put off and really need to get done once both kids go back to school. i am sure i will find plenty of ways to fill my days without them!
although, it gets me a bit choked up knowing that i will be alone for almost 6 hours everyday for the first time in over eight years. i have had at least one sidekick with me everyday since july 2007!
the other day i told baby girl that i would miss her when she was at school. she looked at me funny and said, “But you’ll have Oddy and Rainy!”
she is super excited to start kindergarten at the same school as her brother. when i asked her what she is most excited about she said, “Making new friends!”
her brother, on the other hand, is not thrilled about going back to school, but i know he will be once he sees all his friends!
we have school supply drop off ton wednesday. we will also finally find out who they have for teachers. woo-hoo!
