The End Of Summer

I cannot believe that September has flown by so fast!  Fall is here in portland, we've had a few cloudy sunless days. Friday morning it was misting when I walked to the bus.  Days around here have been filled with knitting and sewing and coffee dates and lots of baking. We try to soak up as much sunshine as possible. Here is a few moments from the last month.

The new phone is amazing. It so incredibly light and the camera is  fast. I am a lucky girl indeed. I got up at 4:00am ventured down to the apple store on the bus got there around 5:30 and had my phone by 10am. I needed to go back and have it swapped out cause i got a faulty screen but over all it was a pleasant day. I keep playing with my phone and I have barely touched my iPad. I am sure that things will settle out in a few days. I love new iPhone/ipad day. I love learning about all the cool thing the new operating system can do.
