Sarah Cook- Publisher … Back to school, back to work, and back to reality! What does September mean to you? For me? My favorite song “September” by Earth Wind and Fire… “do you remember- the 21st night, September”- it conjures up so many amazing memories, my childhood in the 70’s, my free spirted parents, the taste of freedom that was given to us in the summers of our youth, then taken once again…Labour day and back to school!
The end of summer brings cottage and camp farewells, bomb fire smell-filled clothes home to be washed, corn on the comb, peaches and cream. Fall is one of my favorite seasons (but…Spring wins every time)! Fall is still warm, yet the nights are cooler, there’s a crispness in the air, no more humidity. A sense of normalcy sets in; that summer eludes. The Cabbagetown festival is September 8th and 9th, as well as the St. James Festival at Wellesley and Parliament.
The art walk in Riverdale Farm and all the wonderful ‘new to you’ treasures at the various garage sales along the way. Cabbagetown is so beautiful in the Fall, the leaves start to change colour…time to take a walk-through Riverdale Farm, or the historical and beautiful Necropolis, or a last bike ride through the Don Valley before it just too cold?
Enjoy Fall, as it has so much to offer – As we enter October we’ll be enjoying our family and friends around our Thanksgiving dinner table, turkey day is early this year, or at least it feels early to me- October 6th. Before we know our fun filled Fall food issue hits the windy streets and then, BOO– Halloween!
