One of the craziest Septembers I've had in awhile...stuff going on every weekend and a lot during the week too....while I like to keep busy, I equally like low-key hanging out. I think it will be toward the end of October when things finally settle down a it...
some forest park exploring
 some epic sunsets (no filter) like this for several nights in a row
a hike almost everyday in Queeny Park as my pseudo-workout.....loving it.

chelsea market, ny, this summer.
Perfect, crisp, late summer/early fall weekend. Highs in the 70s. Lows in the 50s. Open windows. Air conditioning off. And....back in the 90s again by Tuesday. Screw it.

Still So Summer

It doesn't seem real that summer is over. The beginning of my summer, spent road tripping and exploring the halls and learning in an amazing New England prep school, seems like so long ago. I've been out of official summer mode for about 3 weeks now...but the horrible, hot, HUMID Missouri weather just won't let up. Rains from Hurricane Isaac all weekend were much needed, but the roof over my classroom sprung a leak and I came into a soaked carpet this morning. Needless to say, it shifted around plans for the day. It is supposed to cool down at the end of the down meaning 80s, not 90s, and less humid. I don't like that 80s is my frame of reference for cooling down now. We better get a frickin' cold winter with at least 3 snow days. I'm calling it now.
