Where Does the Time Go?

Yes, I know …

it is is August. 

the kids have been out of school for a while now. 

it has been sunny and warm outside. 

that I have enjoyed typical county fair food. 

the flowers that bloom in late August are beginning to show their vibrant colors. 

the sounds of marching bands practicing can be faintly heard playing from the nearby local high school.


I want to stay in a state of denial.

I am not ready for the changes that fall will bring.

I feel like this every year because I have a love/hate relationship with fall. 

I love the crispness that I feel in the air, but I hate the fact that I have to put away my shorts.

I love the excitement a new school year brings, but I hate that May seems so far away.

I love pulling out my sweaters, but I hate putting away my sandals.

I love watching Friday night football, but I hate when I can’t go swimming.

I love that my daughter is ready to go off to college, but I hate that she has grown up so fast.

I love that days are scheduled and more orderly, but I hate that the days are scheduled and more orderly.

Fall signals a season of change, but without these changes, I probably would not enjoy and savor what I have right now. 

Time to go and savor summer, for a few more days at least!
