It is so hot outside. Super hot. Sweltering hot. Too much hot. And it is the first week of school. Sleepy. No dozing time in the morning. On the hottest days ever, when you're wishing it were freezing, and on the coldest day ever, when you're wishing it were sweltering....I think I will always wish it were colder.

Today I was randomly helped by two other Michelles, one in a furniture store and one on the phone making an appointment. I don't usually run into too many, gladly...don't want a too-popular name.

so long to summer

Another summer come, and gone. Long days but short weeks....where does it all go? The past few days it has been so windy and perfect and wavy and puffy cloudy and blue and green, that green, my favorite green where the sun soaks through the trees and lights up the underside of the leaves. Back to mid mid midwest, but I am actually looking forward to it, to forward motion, school, preparing, changing around and sprucing up my apartment a bit...before I know it, it will be the holidays in a flash and these photos will have to sustain me through winter...
