This morning, fall was finally in the air. An almost brisk 70 degrees rustled the treetops and gave my dogs and me an extra perk in our steps (or perhaps it was all the squirrels rejoicing in the cooler weather as well). Regardless, I had a huge smile on my face during my walk this morning. I simply adore this time of year.
I was reminded about the season change yesterday, actually, when I saw an advertisement for Decatur’s Concerts on the Square. Decatur has these free, outdoor concerts every spring and fall, and this year they’ll be taking place on September 10, 17 and 24 on Decatur Square. They’re free! Such a lovely way to spend an evening with friends and family. My family will be in town for the concert on the 24th, and they’re in luck; there will be fireworks! The Fourth of July fireworks display had to be cancelled due to rain, so we’ll all get to enjoy them on the last night of their stay. And, Cindy Lou Harrington is performing — I hadn’t heard of her before now, but she’s great.
