Wow!! I can’t believe its fall already. The summer went much too quickly. I got a little second wind of summer by spending Labor Day weekend in warm weather with some of my kids. We were on a boat, wishing that summer could go on forever. And then, somehow, September whizzed by, I’ve been working hard, and its October.
In San Francisco, one gets about 4 hot days a year, maybe 6 (really!! San Francisco is Northern California, so it’s usually 25 to 30 degrees colder than LA, and also than the Napa Valley, which is only about 60 miles away). San Francisco is in a pocket of cold air, with a stiff wind off the Bay, and lots of fog, so it is always cold there. And feels freezing in the summer when it’s 50 degrees). But for about 3 days in June, and 3 days in September, it is hot and warm and gorgeous. And sure enough in the last week of September, it was gorgeous in SF. I spent one day at the beach, and two days on my roof (trying to preserve my tan), and then I had to work. And then the fog rolled in, and it’s freezing again. So I put my summer clothes away today, and that’s the end of it. No more summer. I had a great time with my kids this year, and am really sad to see the summer end.
I hope you had a good summer too. Now I will be working all year, taking a brief break for holidays with my kids, but that’s it for me. I’ll have my nose to the grindstone til next summer, working on new books. It’s fun to get back to work, but I really miss the lazy days of summer!! And I hope we all have a great fall!!
