Whew, I’m exhausted, but I’ve had a reMARTHAble two days! I’ve enjoyed a fantastic train ride to NYC with my sister, attended a Clinton foundation event, shook hands and spoke with former president Clinton, Chelsea Clinton and her husband Mark, stayed at a hip hotel (yotel), and shopped. My stocking sweetie is complete!
While in NYC: Barney’s gaga workshop, lunch at Bergdorfs and macaroons at laduree. Ahhhhh, perfection.
This weekend? Maybe time to get a tree, and finish my technical drawing project.
Also, did I mention I hung with the Clinton’s? Albeit, for a moment, but I did! Truly a reMARTHAble day(s).

"When summer opens, I see how fast it matures, and fear it will be short; but after the heats of July and August, I am reconciled, like one who has had his swing, to the cool of autumn."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Another heatwave this week, and the pumpkin beers are in the grocery stores…Fall is just around the corner, but until then, I will enjoy the heat of August.
So, yesterday I blogged about fall and how it was creeping up on us. Well, this morning has a little bit of a bite to it (like in the 60s, not the lovely 70+’s it has been), and has been a little reminder of my favorite season. Then, I took a look at my Martha calendar and here is what should be attacked this week:
These are just gentle reminders that the end is near. Our summer is coming to a close…quickly. For those of you in warmer climates, you don’t feel the rush of the season’s door closing, but for us New Englanders, we do. Commercials about buying your season lift passes are on, you see the signs for apple picking and brew fests all around you, and it seems as though you really do feel the seasons changing in your bones. I don’t know who I am anymore, but I’m starting to sound like an old New Englander saying, “you cahn’t get theah, from heah.”
But enough talk over this silly season change, it’s summer for crying out loud! Today, I will spend my time weeding the outdoor planters, going on dump runs, cleaning the downstairs, and meeting with my new teaching partner and group to pow-wow over the upcoming school year. Yep, time to get our acts together.
Here’s to kicking summer’s butt and enjoying every minute of it!
