september I'll remember

It feels like autumn. Cycling to and from work, there's a definite chill in the air. I went blackberrying on the way home yesterday and somehow it wasn't as much fun as it was in August when it was sunny and warm. All the easy berries had gone and though there are still many more to come, there's not that feeling of abundant fruit anymore. And I got stung by nettles and stood in a cow pat which is enough to make anyone feel grumpy.

Still, I like autumn. Brisk cold sunny days, wearing skirts and boots and jumpers. I'm in need of jumpers, I've slimmed out of last year's. Two weeks or so left at work, one essay left to write for my OU course, a stack of books to read for my MA course. Back to being a full-time student again, back to being penniless again.

It's going to be a busy month, this September.

I was so excited yesterday when I could see my breath on the way to work. Also, I've made a pretty decent second breakfast from the blackberries which hedge the path every day this week. Yum!

There is definitely an autumny chill in the air. I am trying to adjust to school again. it always seems like an alien environment in the first few days but that will change.

blackberrying sounds fun...never mind the nettles and cow pat

I am feeling it too. It makes me want Summer back, yet at the same time I am looking forward to what lies ahead that Fall brings. It's a bittersweet time of year.
