Summer Clothes

This morning I got up, looked outside to see the grey day, and finally stopped shivering after putting on a robe. Not only was it raining, but all hope of being wrong, avoiding the meaning of the steadily decreasing temperatures obviously had not worked. Summer had not come back and no break was in sight. It was obviously time to pack away my summer clothes.

What summer clothes? For that matter, what summer? You might ask and it would be a fair question for the UK. There might have been a bit of summer this year; probably in early August while I was out of country.  According to several at work, it happened in late June/early July.

I have a few summer things: a dress, a linen jacket, a light weight suit. And then there is a pair of shorts, traveling pants, and t-shirts too good for the gym. All in all, a pitiful stack to be moved to the office closet.

Positive? Time for the warmer sweaters,

handknit socks and wool pants

Oh, and my lovely fleece jacket to complement my ACUs. Didn’t do a thing for the rain today, but at least I was not cold.

Perhaps having iTunes is not such a good thing.

    We didn’t have much of a summer either here in NJ. It arrived for about 5 days in August and then left again. I can’t say that I missed it.

    We had plenty of summer here! In fact, it being ‘only’ October 5th, I wouldn’t dare put away my warm weather things yet. That being said, it has been quite cool the last two mornings and evening….I’m wearing a short sleeved sweater and hand knit socks! Happiness is. Love the Faery Ring.

  4. Faery Ring looks awesome. Happy belated Birthday, Holly! Hope it was wonderful.
