WELCOME TO SEPTEMBER—A NEW SEASON OF HOPE

Not Officially the First Day of Fall, But I’m Still Celebrating

Actually, the Autumnal Equinox is not until September 22, 2021, but we’re getting a break in the weather here in southern California so I’m celebrating its early arrival—I hope.  This summer has been brutal, probably the hottest summer on record so any relief is welcome.

Add to that, the news of late has been filled with nothing but chaos and doom and gloom, and here we are in another resurgence of COVID and all it’s trappings.  We decided early this morning to soldier on and make the best of each new day.

With that, here at BoomerGal I try to bring a sense of calm and normalcy to life through inspirational and enlightening blogs.  We have surpassed 117 blogs since we began our web enterprise and still going strong.  As you know, my blogs are designed with Boomers and Seniors in mind, providing helpful hints and tips for enjoying a more robust, relevant and healthy lifestyle.

September is filled with all kinds of happenings.  We start off with the Labor Day Holiday beginning this weekend and for our Jewish friends Rosh Hashanah on the 7th, which is the beginning of the Jewish New Year, followed by Yom Kippur on the 16th.  Then we have the 20th anniversary of 9/11, one of the darkest days in American history and never to be forgotten.  Thank you to all first responders and our military for protecting our homeland.

On a lighter side, September is national honey month so go stock up; Grandparent’s Day is the first Sunday after Labor Day; football season is back so go tailgate with one of your favorite teams or simply do a BBQ on your back patio, or better yet head out to a Friday night high school football game (when was the last time you did that); pay-it-forward by paying for someone’s coffee in the drive-thru behind you; bake some cookies and deliver them to the local police or fire station;  begin to prepare your gardens and yard for the coming winter months; go visit a local farm stand and be sure to take your grandkids; and by all means please enjoy the monarch butterflies as they migrate across North America to reach their wintering grounds in southwestern Mexico.

We hope you continue to tune in as we expand our topics and add various products to our offering.  As always, I like to invite anyone who wishes to contribute to do so, and I will be happy to post your contribution.

Boomers, let’s enjoy our new month, from cooler temps and all the great and wonderful people and events we have around us.  Stay relevant and stay strong both physically and mentally as we grapple with all the outside noise.
