Thursday was nothing short of miraculous. I ran on Friday and didn't even have to refill my water; in fact, I came home with some left in the bottle (where a week before I had gone through 2 before I got home - I love well-placed gas stations!) It is my favorite time of year for running. I went last night and didn't take water at all. I was faster than I've been in weeks - it was wonderful!!

I used to hate fall, but I love it now. The light is different; it reminds me of when Thomas was a newborn - that tinge of cold on the air even on the hot days, a constant reminder that fall is on it's way. And you are right - the trees aren't changing. We went up Parley's and over to Deer Creek on Monday and everything is still green. It must be due to our wet spring.

I could see Ragnar hill from my perch in the lake and it brought back such good memories! I can't drive through those canyons anymore without thinking of Ragnar. It's awesome.

I'll stop comment-hogging now. Sheesh.


I like the conclusion you draw . . . the world's good intentions.

It IS turning into a fantastic summer's end, isn't it?


Amy, I enjoyed our Write Now class, and I am now enjoying your blog. The weather in Portland OR is too hot to feel very autumny yet, but I know it (Autumn) will come soon. Here is the quote I used in my blog in October of 2010: "Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." (George Eliot)


We are in what we call "Second Summer" (Indian Summer) but we never had the first one this year, so it feels good.

My birthday is the 31st, and I often note that even when we have summer, we go from the Dog Days to Fall by my birthday
