yeah, it was that kind of day

So summer is not over in Nashville.  I’m beginning to think it might be here to stay.  Forever.  And ever.  It’s pretty lame, really: I’ve got all of these kicky shawls and shawlettes I can only wear indoors … where the air conditioning is set at “frostbite”.  Then I wander out-of-doors — to go to class, buy some gummy bears, make copies, commit acts of tom foolery in front of my students — only to find myself over dressed.

That might be why I’m kissing my beer at the end of a very. long. day.  In which I tried — and failed — to vanquish Faust I.  I might have knit a row and a half of my Idlewood.  The cowl is complete, the body is in an advanced state of shaping, and all systems are a go.

Except fall isn’t here yet.

  1. boo. thwarted by delinquent autumn. (s)he’ll be there soon. and i guess the equinox doesn’t officially occur until next week, but seriously! doesn’t autumn understand about shawls?

  2. Blasted “Fall.” It only seemed to get hotter here after Labor Day.

    I heartily approve of the beer. I also recommend Paulaner Salvator. It’s quite tasty and probably my top favorite.

  3. I live in SoCal, and it seems fall has already arrived. We had a very cool summer, and while September is supposed to be our hottest month, it’s been very mild for the most part. I’m also a teacher, so I so understand your need for that beer! (I drink wine, instead)
