September...Good Thoughts

       Yes...I know what's on a lot of people's minds today, and my heart goes out to the families of those who have lost someone they love. Death and change and bad memories are never easy. Thankfully I know that the world's future is shiny and perfect and fear-free. I'll be happy to tell everyone I come in contact with today about it.
        With the crisp September air coming through my window, and birds gently squawking their territory call, my hubby softly breathing beside me, and the silent whirring of my air purifier, I sit and ponder the 'good' of September and things that give me a chuckle or a smile. That's what I want to share with you today.
      The Autumn Path fine art photo, in the header photo, by AestheticFocus...Delicious corn on the cob...
          ...and strawberries from Maine. (from the blog Hither and Thither)
        The beautiful mustard yellow colors of a new treasury entitled "Love the color, hate the condiment" by bohorain... which she included my Gold and Black Button Crochet Flower Necklace from my Wuglyees shop.
         A pair of Lumberjack Axe and Saw Earrings by ChristineDomanic...
        A Felt Kitty Necklace by FiveOClocks...

       A Fashionably Classic Ruffle Scarf...
       ...and a skinny Striped Petal one too, by FAIRYTALE13.
         And just because it's 'smile-inducing'...not to mention warm looking...
     ...the prettiest little crochet rainbow scarf you ever TheMommalady. (I wish I had been the one that thought of putting these beautiful colors together!! ^_^)
      Okay....time to close the window and wake up the hubby so we can get some breakfast before our early meeting today...Later on today it'll be watching the U.S. Open Tennis finals between Samantha Stosur and Serena Williams, and more crocheting on my Fall inspired scarf. (I'll show it to you tomorrow)
     Please find some time to think some good thoughts of September today. There's certainly going to be enough sad ones to go around...Here's my attempt at starting a September good thought for you today. :-]


The changing of the seasons,
squirrels that scurry everywhere,
a cup of steeping apple cider,
and the crisp and cooler air.

Cozy scarves and football games,
and harder to get out of bed,
worrying whether frost will come,
and what is flying overhead.

September brings a lot of thoughts,
and some reflection will be sad.
But as the years and seasons change,
good thoughts replace the bad we've had.


  1. I love your positive post about September, one of my favorite months - the beginning of fall (well, almost here in the South), my favorite season. Thank you for the reminders of all that is good... Love, Silke

  2. Deb, Thank you for positive reflections of our lives and for reminding us that we have so much to be thankful for. I feel kind of bad though because my post was more on a negative note. Beautiful poem thank you for sharing. Have a great day!!!!

  3. Lovely post Deb, and yes, too much sadness around today so lets remember the good things. Its all we have. This is the beginning of my favorite season :)

  4. Silke, Thank you...As you probably know, Fall is my favorite season too! It's not hard to find positive things about it, even on a day like today...Enjoy the rest of your fall approaching weekend!

  5. SnowflakeDreams1, Awww! Thank you Velma. And don't be comparing our posts to each other's...*shaking my finger*...Be you!!...And thank you for the very nice words about my poem. Enjoy the rest of the weekend! :-)

  6. Cathy, Thank you...Yes! It's my favorite season too! There's lots to smile about for a few months to come now!! :-) We won't even whisper anything about...Shhhh!....snow! ^_^

  7. Happy Sunday to you!

    That first image is just dreamy.
    How adorable is that kitty necklace?!!!
    Agree, let's celebrate the good things in life.

  8. Priscila, Happy Sunday to you too! :-) And yes, that first image caught my attention and had me sitting there staring at it. I love the Fall!...Hope you're having a good weekend!

  9. It is a sad day for so many today. But as you said, there is a perfect world in the future to look forward to! Oh, how I yearn for it!! I know you do too! I'd be happy to tell anyone who wants to know about it too!
    Enjoy your tennis! I'll be around a bit more tomorrow!
    Congrats again, on the sales! Super Duper!!

  10. It is very sad day for many people. I'm glad you had some positive thoughts and things to share.
    Love the Earth, Wind & Fire song. I hadn't heard that one for such a long time.

  11. CinLynn, With my exhaustion lately, and my bones and muscles aching like crazy because of the weather, I CAN'T WAIT for 'something better'!!!...In the meantime, I'll just amuse myself with my 'babies'! ^_^ And I'm glad other people are starting to see them too! It gives me more impetus to keep creating...And, of course, for now...there's also always tennis!! ^_^

  12. Jo-anne, Thank you. :-) I had seen so many sad posts that I just didn't want to add to them. And Fall is a perfect time to think about a "change", right?! :-) And I hadn't heard that song for a while myself, but it was perfect, wasn't it?!...Have a good day today, Jo!!
