They say today is the un-official end of summer. They say that after today you shouldn’t wear white. They say today you should eat lots of BBQ and take one last dip in the pool. I say “pfft, whatever”. Summer is in full swing around these parts and I’m hopeful it’s going to stick around for awhile.
The last few weeks have been the hottest of the season. It’s been hot from the minute I wake up. I mean, walking my dog at 8 am, can’t breathe kind of hot. So, yeah, I don’t think summer is ready to make it’s grand exit. Fingers crossed. That being said, I had a moment this weekend where I was ready for the next season. I was doing a pre-school app on my phone with my son. The app was all about seasons and what’ appropriate in each season. In one of the scenarios there were pumpkins. I started to think about the pumpkin patch. I remembered how much fun it is to go to the pumpkin patch and how much my daughter will enjoy it this year. That got me thinking about hot apple cider and fall festivals. I gotta admit, as much as I love the summer and the heat, I am looking forward to fall.
I remember when I lived in the Midwest, I was all about the fall clothes. I looked forward to wearing boots and being warm and cozy. Now, I look forward to the fall clothes but also I look forward to taking walks sipping a tea latte from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. I’m also looking forward to finding more stuff for my kids to explore and enjoy. Alright Fall, take your time getting here but, I’m kind of ready for you. In the meantime, we’ll be soaking up summer over here. We’re thinking a fish fry or grilling in the backyard will be a good way to go. What are you doing on this “last” day of summer.
