Lingering Summer feelings

This past weekend felt just like all the best parts of summer packed into two days. It was warm, sunny and relaxed like a tiny slice of summer vacation. I stayed out until Friday night turned into Saturday morning and slept in until it was too bright in my apartment to keep my eyes closed. In shorts, an old tee shirt and my raggedy flats I poked around in stores and wandered in the Manhattan sunshine. Then took a long nap while the sun set and spent the night eating grilled cheese sandwiches and having beers with my friends. I'm still really nervous about bringing my camera around with me just now though. Trust me, it was a lovely night. The weather was chilly and we kicked around fallen leaves, but that pervasive summer-freedom feeling was still in the air.
On Sunday I threw open the windows in my apartment, perhaps for the last time this year, while I made breakfast and got dressed. I headed out for a long aimless walk through the neighborhood. Once I was home the sun was going down and the air was chilly again but I put on a sweater and left the windows open anyway because it still felt a little like summer.
