“Wake me up when September ends”. Do you know that song by Green Day? In my every day life I like to use that phrase when I know something will take a long time, and/ or I want to be left alone for a while. Most of the time the end of September is far away, but in September, it is not that much fun to use that phrase. It definitely cannot be used today. However, if you were sleeping, I am here to tell you that September is ending, so WAKE UP! (Literally, or figuratively.) The summer is dead and gone, so you better make sure you prepare for winter (both physically and mentally).
Today, I would like to thank you all for your continued support – the reading, the commenting, the liking, the re-blogging, etc. It really does make blogging so much better.

I was slightly worried that when the dust settled, the shine wore off, Gold(ie) tarnished, and you all exchanged me for a newer model. It is my hope that my posts are still thought provoking, entertaining, and sometimes maybe inspiring.
The awards I received in the month of September are:
