taking stock ~ green, pink and sunny all over

It's a yellow and chartreuse kind of day. Hope you've got some gorgeous weather where you are! #hellospring

I thought it might be fun this month to kick off with this list from Pip at Meet Me at Mikes. A little snapshot of what we’re doing, thinking, wishing and wanting here at Casa Lime Lane.

And because I know, while I’m “getting excited about longer days and warmer weather” now, I will be ruing it in a couple of months’ time.

calendar // september


Spring has sprung in the southern hemisphere so a pop of yellow for the September calendar.

  • September begins on the same day of the week as December every year.
  • No other month ends on the same day of the week as September in any year. This month and May are the only two months to have this property.
  • September (from Latin septem, “seven”) was originally the seventh of ten months on the oldest known Roman calendar, with March (Latin Martius) the first month of the year.
  • September 14 was the day that Francis Scott Key wrote The Star-Spangled Banner, the national anthem of the United States
  • September 19 is International Talk Like A Pirate Day.
  • September’s birthstone is the sapphire. The birth flowers for September are the forget-me-not, morning glory and aster.

And another week has gone flying by. Did you know it’s like 17 weeks until Christmas? I’m sure you didn’t want to know that actually but it’s a frightening thought.

I’ve only just got used to saying 2014 and soon it will be 2015.

Anyway, today it’s time for some link love to take you into the weekend ~ may it go slow!

Have a great one!
