Early Autumn in England
We have a great CD called Autumn in New England. I particularly like the first track, "A Ship A Sailing." But that's neither here nor there. My point is that it feels like Autumn has already reached England. Old England, that is.
My husband is wearing flannel pyjamas to bed. My daughter requested that we change her summer blankets for her winter duvet/puff (a request we honored). I haven't worn shorts here all summer (though of course I wore them while visiting the U.S.). We did have a brief hot spell back in March/April. But I think summer has skipped us entirely this year.
The days here in the Southern UK this August are passing with a calm drizzle and grey demeanor.
There are several up-sides:
1) No sweat
2) It feels quite appropriate to be starting up with school already in two days
3) It's fine we don't have A/C
4) We get to wear cozy sweaters
I'll leave you with one more New Englandy CD recommendation:
New England by Piano, also by David Huntsinger. There are some repeats from the above-mentioned CD. My favorite new tracks are "Morning Weaves Through Irish Lace" (track 1), "Climbing Katahdin" (track 5), and "Autumn Daydream" (track 10). Thanks again, Aunt Willow! I've been listening to it in my car with zeal.

Hmm, no summer weather. Bummer. That would be weird. We've been hiding indoors due to a heat wave. I guess you have to deal with what you have to deal with, eh?
