The End Of Summer

It has been an odd summer. I can’t remember the last time I spent so much time outside or in restaurants, coffee shops and such (no photographic evidence to support the latter).

It has also been a summer of numerous heat waves that left many of my plants either dead or on the verge of self-destruction. I don’t think I‘ll be able to replace every single one of them and, to be honest, I’m not sure if I even want to. I am seriously considering about staying on the minimal side this year – tired of the million tiny pots mess. Besides, I‘d rather spend my money on other things:

The Sisters Of Mercy are back in town; or will be, anyway. The last time I saw them live was over 100 years ago and, yes, they were horrible with way too much pre-recorded audio (both music and vocals), but I am really excited to see them again (him, don’t have to pretend around here), nonetheless. Another great band, The Frozen Autumn, will also be coming back for a gig in December.

Hopefully, other things, equally enjoyable are around the corner, waiting for me. No more unpleasant surprises, please.
