It’s the first day of September and we are greeted by heavy rains and a cool 15 degrees celcius (59F) this morning. Everything was in synch: the rain, the comfort of a warm bed and toddler still sleeping even at 6:30 (she usually wakes up earlier). I feel I could sleep for another hour with this weather, if only I don’t have to work!
After work today I need to go drop some mails at the post office, pick Pristine from pre-school and meet up with M at the grocery store. We will have barbeque tonight with friends, have fun celebrating the first day of September, dining outside, talking and welcome the relieving feeling of cool air that signals the start of early autumn.

Reality check: We are not in Japan and there is no such thing as autumn in our current geographical location. The temperature is no where lower than 35C (95F).
