Michigan has been very rainy, not quite as nice as most falls. We took a trip to Outer Banks a few years ago in October and it was really nice. Weather was 70's and 80's, beaches uncrowded, but a lot of things were getting ready to close for the year and some stores and restaurants were already closed. I was surprised because the weather was perfect.

It is not enough to take steps which may some day lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise.

For 60 years my seasons have been Almost summer, summer, still summer and 2 weeks of something else. This year for the first time in memory I have seasons and am enjoying the changes.

I do all the thinks I couldn't do outside during the summer, like hiking. As the Dr says summer is NOT my friend.

By all these lovely tokens September days are here,
With summerís best of weather
And autumnís best of cheer.

I'm not sure about other places, especially those in the Southern Hemisphere, but where I grew up the new school year started in September, so in many ways I associate "new beginnings" with this month almost more than I do with January.

There are so many things you can choose to do in September: in the North, the weather is getting cooler (or if climate change hasn't completely messed it up, it will be, lol), and it's more pleasant to be outdoors. You might want to use this month to make some decisions for 2020... to organize a project (or two!)... or begin a new exercise program. You could even start planning for that run-up to holiday (over)eating. (In case this seems premature, consider Halloween and the candy sales in the stores; that's followed by Thanksgiving; and the excesses of Christmas, Hanukkah, etc. abound.)

I like to take my vacation in September rather than mid-summer. I like to feel more comfortable being outside walking around rather than melting in the sauna of July. Places that close for the winter are often still open in early fall, and there usually aren't as many people around since kids have gone back to school, many family vacations are over, and it's before the autumn-foliage tourists arrive.

Have you any plans for this month? Anything you've been procrastinating about but now might turn your hand to? What are your thoughts on a mini-reboot for September?
