Happy Anne Day!Bookish
Yay, it's Anne Day! Every year on the first day when it starts to feel like autumn, I start my reread of the Anne of Green Gables series. (I've written about it before here.) Because I'm an obsessive freak, I'd been watching the 10-day weather forecast and hoping that today would be the day, because the high was only supposed to be 72, and it never goes above 80 in the rest of the forecast. But it's not just about temperature. There needs to be a certain sharpness and brilliance to the light, a certain slight bite to the breeze, and a certain indefinable smell in the air that says not-summer. So I couldn't decide that today was actually the day until I went outside this morning. I'm so excited that it is.
Ready? Here we go...
