Seven Things: to Love About this September

7.  The start of school. OK, so it’s more than a little cliché to write about the first days of school in September.  But I won’t lie, I always get excited for the first day of school.  When I was younger I used to get so excited that I wouldn’t be able to sleep the night before.  I’ve gotten over that, but there’s still something about the way campus comes to life, the way everyone is a-chatter over what they’ve done over the summer and which classes they are taking, and the way the first page of a fresh notebook looks when you get ready to write the first words in it.  I’ve always loved school, and I’m pretty happy to be back at it.

6. Doing something summery for Labor Day Weekend.  We enjoyed the farmers market, bought 10 pounds of tomatoes for canning, and ate homemade baba ganoush and stuffed peppers from our other takings.
5. That first crisp fall day.  When it’s sunny, but cool enough for a sweater.  Cool enough to snuggle up with someone. And the wind smells cool.
4. Running in my new Vibram FiveFingers. I’m loving them.  They are light and flexible.  Sometimes when I’m walking around in them I feel like I should be putting on shoes, because they really do feel so bare.  I’m glad I spent 3 weeks running barefoot, because it’s certainly allowed me to adjust pretty seamlessly to wearing the fivefingers.  Looking forward to my next run.
3. Motorcycle Safety Class. I’m taking it in 3 weeks, and super excited, and a little nervous.

2. The Detroit Jazz Festival. It happens over Labor Day, and it’s all free.  3. Free. Days. Of. Jazz. Pretty sweet.  Boyfriend and I kind of stumbled into watching Jason D. Williams play, and I think we both decided it’s one of the best things we’ve done in the D yet.  Pure entertainment.
1. Going home for the Garlic Party. The other great Minnesota Get-Together
