August you? I hardly know you.

And, one of my favorite months begins.
Beach week approaches.
Summer rambles on.
Nights start to get a little longer.
Back to school reading begins in earnest.
The tomatoes finally, hopefully ripen (usually coinciding with beach week.)
Fall clothes appear in the stores, and a cardigan at night sounds nice.
Shiny new school supplies are packed up, getting ready.
Knitting starts to sound a wee bit appealing again.
Stone fruit fills the fruit bowl.
Everyone grooves on our summer rhythm.

I, too, love August! I think all the goodness at the farmer's market makes me the most happy!
