August is only half over and yes, I am starting to see HALLOWEEN decor in the stores and showing up in catalogs. It is scarey! Someone was complaining that after this weekend, their pool is closed down for the SUMMER! How could this be?

Growing up school didn't start till after Labor Day in September. Now kids are going in August? It is like we are speeding up the clock. I dread the days getting shorter. I treasure the sunlight. I still want to hang on a bit to those lazy crazy days of summer before I face the falling leaves, short days, and frost on the pumpkins.

But for those who are starting to prepare early, here is something to get you in the mood.

The Letter "Blue" J

The Letter Blue J

During the Lakewood Arts Festival it became apparent that I needed to come up with another J for the next festival that is to be held in Berea, Ohio this September 8th. The little girl holding the jump rope in the shape of a J was not quite neutral enough.

Not an easy task. A blue jay sounds fun until you try to have him resemble a J. But here he is all ready for the fair.
