We’re nearly halfway through October now, and that must mean fall is here, right? No. Not in Los Angeles. Instead of crunching my way through multi-colored leaves scattered on the ground and getting cozy with sweaters, I am hiding in my bedroom with the curtains drawn and the air conditioning window unit on full blast. And it’s still too hot.
There was a moment last week when I could feel fall. The air got a little cooler, I turned on my oven, and we saw a few drops of rain falling from the sky. And it was glorious. But it was only a moment, and now we’re back to our regular schedule of 100+ degree weather.
And now for the elephant in the room (or on the website, or whatever)…it’s been a bit. I didn’t forget about this blog. On the contrary, I thought about it a lot. But there’s a lot of pressure for blogs these days. Even though I have approximately zero readers at this point, I still felt unsure and nervous and weird about what I might post. So I paused and tried to figure out what I wanted my blog to say and what I wanted it to be about. And you know what? I still don’t know. All I know is that I like to write and I like to take photos, and I would like a fun way to practice those things. So for now, this is what this space will be. If you would like to come along on the journey, welcome.
I did get up to a few things this summer:
KonMari Method: So I read the book that everyone’s been reading and followed the method and oh my goodness, I have so much to say about this. I will probably write a few posts about just this topic. It was quite the journey, and I think I’m now on the other side.
Hiding from the heat in my room with the air conditioning unit on: Summer Bucket List accomplished.
If you need me, I’ll be dreaming about rain, scarves and all things fall.
