See you in September. See you when the summer’s through.” 
Can you name that song?

Of course, “See You in September,” which was originally sang by the group, The Tempos in 1959. It became much more popular when it was later released in 1966 by the group, The Happenings. Since then, it has been released by various other groups like The Pacemakers.

It’s one of my favorite songs since September signals the end of summer and the beginning of autumn. The clever landscape artists will soon arrive in Pennsylvania to paint our hillsides in colors of gold, scarlet, and tangerine. Autumn brings cooler misty nights, foggy mornings, and warm sunny days.

It’s sweat shirt weather and the sound of crackling leaves and the bubbling laughter of children as they gather at the bus stop. It’s the smell of wood smoke in fireplaces and outdoor fire rings. It’s also the most wonderful time to play a game of golf in moderate, cool temperatures. The downside? Trying to find your golf ball among the early falling leaves.

I love autumn in Pennsylvania. But September also reminds us that we need to finish all those fair weather chores before winter creeps upon us. The mild weather lets us reassess what we hoped to accomplish and determine what we really need to do.

For me, September is a new beginning and a chance to evaluate the writing projects I want to complete before the holidays come galloping into my life to distract me. What chores do you hope to accomplish this fall?

Whatever they are, do enjoy the wonderful weather outside. And I’ll see you in October—right here on this blog!

  1. Fall is beautiful but I never like it because it means the dark days of winter are coming. I think some of that is the SAD that so many in my part of Oregon deal with every winter. One good thing about now is the days are getting shorter and shorter but the shortest is on its way and then voila, we start over :)

  2. I agree the dark days are not part of enjoying fall. My son lives in Alaska, and they have "Happy Lights" up there because of the long winter dark days.
