Looking for answers to life's questions

My favorite month is half over in the blink of an eye. Two weeks gone but they were fully loaded. You remember the lonely Aster flower on September first?

This Aster has its own calendar

Well two weeks brought quite a change in the plant and in the weather. We are going from the upper 90-degree temps to mid-70’s and starting next week, we will get to the 60’s with a full week of rain. This is what I call race weather. I race to get everything outside done and buttoned up for whatever comes next. There is no second guessing the weather these days. You must be ready for anything.

Asters halfway through September

September is a busy month around here. It starts out with lots of birthdays. I get mine early and then many friends and family fall in line until the month is just one big celebration. My daughter and I had a simple Saturday together on my birthday. I felt a little giddy as I waved farewell to the last of my 60’s.

A special blogging friend knows me so well. I really wanted that book too.

First, we visited our favorite metaphysical bookstore downtown to see what was new. I spotted the pretty journals that I did not need but this one made it into my daughter’s shopping bag. I’m going to write my goals and dreams for the next year in it to start the 70’s out right. It was presented to me over a luscious lunch at a tiny Italian place within walking distance of the bookstore. They are known for their criminally delicious desserts of which we had to partake. There was a candle in the cake and Happy Birthday written on the plate.

My son gifted me with the laptop, refurbished with a hard drive that should not break if it was jostled. Now I can visit with everyone again.

Some of the cards that graced my day.

On the way to lunch, wait for it, we saw there was no line at the Salt and Straw!!! It was only 11 a.m. but I had never been able to get in to try their ice cream. It’s famous in Portland, Oregon for its locally sourced and organic ingredients. Lines usually going around the block all day. Dessert before lunch? Well it was my birthday and they were all but waiting for me. I had to try it once.

We did a lot of walking that day to work off the lovely lunch getting home as the 90 plus degree temps invaded our day and we settled in to sit and read.

The first and last part are most applicable to me.

September is my favorite month as the autumn descends upon us and cool things down. Remind me of this post when you see me lamenting the cold and gloomy months ahead. I love the cold over heat but will miss the fresh tomatoes from my garden that I munch on as I work outside.

The big ones had a hard time, The little tomatoes were prolific

I will miss the hard physical work of hauling mulch up the terrace steps and the weeds that always seem to grow better than the flowers. Mostly, I will miss the long daylight hours as days shorten into longer nights. This is the month of transition from summer to winter as autumn here, only gives us a brief wave and moves on.

Are you ready for the changing seasons? What is your favorite month?

From my heart to yours,

Marlene Herself

  1. Happy belated birthday, Marlene! You look absolutely adorable eating your birthday day lunch and wearing your hat! It sounds like you had a special day….you deserve it!
    I love the change of seasons, but I’m not a fan of the cold. I do like the crisp, cool mornings and evenings in October. Right now, we’re heading back up toward the 90’s after some beautiful days in the 70’s. This time of year, it’s a roller coaster. xo

    • Thank you, Jill. I always wear a hat anymore and forget it’s there. They can make a mess of my fly-away hair so it can often be best to leave well enough alone. 🙂 It was downright chilly today and I love it. Most of my friends my age love it warm, I can’t do warm. You could hang meat in my bedroom and it would stay fresh. You are right, this time of year it’s anyone’s guess what the weather will do next. I like to celebrate each birthday I’m privileged to have. Have a wonderfilled weekend.

    Don’t worry about forgetting to take off your hat, I think it looks lovely (and I forget to do it too 😉). The asters are a dream! And you won’t be surprised to hear that I bought ones today that look exactly the same just much smaller. I hope it will grow just as lovely as yours 😄

      The asters I have were very small 5 years ago. Planted them in the ground last year and they are thriving. I may have to split them next spring. Impressive what a couple of weeks will do to a plant. They were in a pot 3 years so yours will do fine. Have a wonderfilled weekend.

  5. I’m happy to see you had a nice birthday Marlene – it does sound like just the right way to enter the 8th decade! September is also my favourite month – not because of my birthday, but because of the daffodils and watching the leaves bud on the trees and the temperature warm up. Through this month my favourite tree wakes up and slowly, one day at time puts on a little more green. I love to really observe her each day as I pass and see where I can note the changes. By the end of the month she will be in her full spring gown, the daffodil hill will be just past its best and we will have longer hours of daylight again. I love September!!

It was the way my daughter and I love to spend a day and she arranged for the cake to have a candle ahead of time. Now I’m working to get things ready for winter and you get to watch spring.

Have a wonderfilled weekend and sending chin scratches to Siddy and Orlando. Hugs to you. 🙂

  10. Happy Belated BIrthday, Marlene!!! So glad you had a memorable clelbration. We’ve had a nice several days, a bit too cool for me (I love the heat) but sunny, which is always best. Nothing growing in the gravel and concrete except a couple low weeds which always struggle. Love the asters, I had them at the house, but mine were the wild kind, small, soft lavender and almost white flowers on tall, rangy plants. There are some in the alley below the building I’m living in which give something green and pretty to look at (even if the alley is filled with nothing but “weeds”). Enjoy the rest of the month and have a wonderful day.

Anything over 80 wipes me out. I started the asters out in a pot when I lived in an apartment with only a porch to put them on. I require dirt and plants being a Virgo in order for me to thrive. 🙂 Hope you have a wonderfilled September too and thanks for stopping by. It’s appreciated.

  11. Hey Marlene! I don’t have a favorite month, but my favorite season is Fall. I love how it’s still warm enough, but not scorching hot; the colors, the change in food, putting on a sweater and walking in crunchy, fallen leaves. Sounds poetic, right? In our new home we have a maple tree that I can watch while writing. I’m anxious to see it do it’s changing thing from green to brilliance. Happy belated birthday, my friend! Here’s to the 70’s!

We have so much smoke again today we can’t go out for any reason. Come on rain! I’d be sitting out there too if I could. Maybe Monday. It’s hard to believe I’m approaching 70.

  12. Marlene, what a lovely joyous post! I’m sorry I missed the chance to wish you Happy Birthday on the day, but may you have many happy and healthy returns of the day. If I had to choose a month Down Under it’d be November: everything is bursting into flower, the big Wet hasn’t started yet but we’ve had a little rain, it’s not as hot and humid as it’ll be in December and January, and the appalling Christmas craziness hasn’t started yet. In the northern hemisphere, I’d have to choose May. For me, it was always the perfect month…

Yoga more in winter but in between in the spring and summer. Keeps us flexible. My son was lamenting that the DIL could barely get out of a chair. She works very hard but not the kind of work that keeps the body pliable. I plan to be around long enough to read all my books, sew all my fabric and finish all my crafts as well and make this house better. Thank you so much for the birthday wishes and the visit. I hope you find some time to play and get physical. Have a wonderfilled weekend.

Thanks to, for the reminder about the pickled garlic, too. As soon as school starts, all the seasonal crud gets passed around. Mike gets sick every time he flies, too.

  22. Well, happy belated birthday Marlene! It sounds like you had a lovely day. September is usually too hot here but when we get to November, that is my favorite month!! Glad you had success with your tomatoes. Unfortunately this year we did not do very well. We had a small season with enough to meet our needs but not really enough to share or freeze as I usually do. This year we grew onions and carrots! Odd combo perhaps but pretty successful with that. Didn’t know that if you left carrots in the ground too long they became ‘bearded’. A little clean up however and they taste quite delicious… what a treat to be able to run out to the garden for them. Love your asters! I’m not really much of a gardener but interesting to know that they are fall bloomers. Definitely going to look into some for next year. The most exciting thing in our yard right now is our bottlebrush tree which is blooming and full of bees. I know they are messy but I just love this tree. It’s it’s right outside my sewing room window and I so enjoy watching the bees and hummingbirds hard at work. I’m hoping to get a post up one of these days! Feels good to touch base with you.💕💥

I love watching the bees but a nest of yellow jackets has run them off and me as well. Have to do something about them because I’ve already been stung once and it was quite painful for 2 weeks. I’ve never grown carrots and have very little growing room actually. I won’t grow onions because I can’t eat them but I’m going to try garlic this year. Maybe even asparagus. 🙂 We have 2 days this week in the mid 80’s and then it looks like fall might really be here! Yay! I have so much inside work to do. The sewing machine keeps taunting me. Looking forward to your photos of the bottle brush tree. 😉 Hugs, M

    Now look at those Asters! So pretty to have in the garden this late in the year. I guess I always think of Portland as having a pretty mild climate, but it sounds like you definitely have seasons too. I’m quite fond of fall too. Summers can be great if it stays in the 70’s. I just like coolish, sunny days any time of year. This summer, there were a number of hotter days but luckily we have air-conditioning at home. Otherwise, I’d be sunk. This September has been weird. We had the hottest day of the year at 32.2 on September 7th, breaking a 108 year old record. Guess what 45, it’s not a hoax !!

      It was a way too hot day for me. I wound up almost ill from the heat that day and really left most of that food for my daughter to take home. I gave it a good hearty try, but by 90 degrees, we start checking out where hospitals are. We were headed home by 1: 30 and I was ill the rest of the day. Just between us though. My daughter wanted me to have a good day and we gave it a hearty go. I’ll take anything from October to April. It’s 57 out now and there will be no heat in my house until it drops to 55 inside. I love the light of summer and playing in the yard more than anything but the heat just makes me too ill so I have to go out at 5-6 am and be back inside before it gets to the mid 70’s. I am so glad you can do the heat. I know winter is hard on you. Heat is expensive and if your place is not well insulated, it’s more expensive. The fact that you can’t do a lot of physical movement to warm up makes it even harder for you. I can move around a while and get warm. We are all so different. Have a good week, Lois.

  25. Well! You were born days before my second birthday! I’m amazed by how many of your readers have Sept birthdays. Sorry this is so late, but we’ve been very busy here with harvest, preserving, etc. Glad your birthday was mostly wonderful and sorry the heat was so high that day. I have a pretty good tolerance for heat and cold, but I also have a good imagination and I can imagine . . .

    Do you remember what flavour that ice cream was? It looked scrumptious. If i’s all the artificial ingredients in ice cream that bother you, Breyer’s (black labelled cartons) is made withal natural ingredients. As is Chapman’s, but you may not get it in the States.

    I’m not sure I have a favourite month, really. Each one that comes, I think that is it, and then another comes . . .

    Here in BC we had the worst forest fire season on record. Over 155 fires burning at once. And then we got the smoke from Oregon. It’s hard to imagine how bad that must have been for you; here it completely obscured the sun for several days. Eerie, really. But all summer we spent much less time outdoors than we might have done. I have probably hundreds of photos of the hillsides on our shopping trips to Vernon or Salmon Arm. Lucky for us, my cousins bought a closed air conditioning system some years ago, so we were cool and also could breathe.

    I am looking forward to winter, mostly for days indoors, as I have tonnes of projects either begun or planned. We have already had frost and some plants have given up the ghost. But others continue to feed us . . .

    Have to go now. So much more I could say. Of course. 🙂
