This morning the sun is shining and the outside temperature is just about proper for humans to live in a comfortable environment.
Much like that September day of 2001. When I think too much about what I want to get upset about, I think what the terrorists did was take away my most favorite time of the year.
When I was a kid, September was good because the garden was full grown, and the canning jars lined the shelves.
The black walnuts fell from the trees and were gathered and washed and laid out to dry.
When I sat at my desk in school (not the place I wanted to be during such lovely weather), I could look at the dark spots on my hands where walnut hull juice had seeped past my work gloves.
Even seven years later, I look out at blue sky in September and a blip of a memory crosses my mind, so I think, “It was a day like this that the towers fell; that for days after, airplanes were told to stop flying through such lovely weather.”
Well, I have decided that while I remember that morning, I have to get going on ideas and preparations for whatever else comes along in my own life.
Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give. —Eleanor Roosevelt
I found the quote at Brainy Quotes where I used up awhile reading and nodding.

LAZY DAY a song from the mid-1960s
Spanky & Our Gang
Blue sky, sunshine
What a day to take a walk in the park
Ice cream, daydream
Till the sky becomes a blanket of stars
What a day for a picnic
Daisies and lots of red balloons
And what a day for holdin’ hands
And bein’ with you
Lazy day just right for lovin’ away
Lazy day made for a stroll in the lane
Baby you and me
(You and me)
And a honey bee
‘Neath a shady tree
Lazy day, lazy day,
Lazy day for you and me
Blue sky, sunshine
Flowers bloomin’, squirrels sayin’ hello
Rowboats, bird notes
People smilin’ everywhere that we go
What a day to be together
And what a sky of blue
And what a day for thinkin’ right out loud
I love you
