I’m so glad you stopped in at the BrewNSpew Café. Have a seat and enjoy the coffee and chatter. Your guess about what is going on in the world is as good as mine. Let’s not talk about it and say we did.

Ah, lovely September, the month when we experience the last days of summer and the first days of fall; and the time to begin preparations for the “winter” season.

September zodiac signs –  Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) and Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22). Birth flowers for September are the fall-blooming aster and the climbing morning glory. September’s birthstone is the sapphire, which along with the ruby are considered the second hardest natural gemstones. The first hardest natural gemstone is the diamond.

Apples, apples and more apples, my favorite fruit! September is the month for apples and apple picking has become a favorite weekend pastime. In fact, just a little north of where I live, apple picking has already begun.

  to live in the now

requires some no-how

with imperturbable composure

giving the excitable the once-over

you know life’s like a menu

unleash options within you

be grateful for life’s ride

cast chaotic moments aside

deem yourself unflappable

yes, and unstoppable

cool as a cucumber, that’s you

    Eugenia,

    Sapphires are my favorite colored gemstones. I like it so much so that I used it over my birth month (December) in my class ring set. My in-laws’ had several miniature apple trees on their property. It was such a treat to eat freshly grown apples and my MIL always made the best apple pies. Mmm, good! We’ll be going back to collect some if not all our belongings this weekend. Maybe, I can pick one more last time some of the apples from those trees to bring home with us. I’m sure going to miss that DH’s boyhood home but I know he’s going to miss it more as it now belongs to my late FIL’s caregiver. That was the arrangement he made with her while he was living for payment for her providing around the clock care. I’d love to be able to ‘cast chaotic moments aside’ as mentioned in your poem but that’s often easier said than done, isn’t it? I’m sorry for the late visit but I fear I’m going to be doing this a lot this week. Have a pAwesome week, dear friend!

      That’s sad news about DH’s boyhood home. Will you be able to visit? Grab all of the apples you can and when you get home make some potent apple cider for those chaotic moments! 🙂 No visit to my blog is ever late.:) Have a great week!
