Sweater in the morning

      Time again to look for my big sweater that I hang by my side door. I leave it there most of the time so I can grab it when I need to walk the dogs late at night or early in the morning. This morning was the first one that I needed it all summer. It has been a strange one weather wise and other wise for me. Being in this new space here at the temple for the summer reading program was very different than in years past. We didn't have the space to have large events or lots of teens. We had a lot of fun with the children who came but it felt different. This morning it was chilly....normally I am always hot but this morning heralded a change in the weather. Now I know that it will still get sultry and humid, it is after all mid August but, those crisp mornings are just around the corner and there is nothing like putting on an old sweater, like getting a hug from an old friend.
