It’s always summer somewhere.
~ Lily Pulitzer
As you all know, I am not the world’s biggest fan of summer, but there are many things about it I like. Fireflies in the meadows, the colors, the flowers, the cool downs (which are profoundly appreciated after a heat wave), beach days, swimming, and so many other things that it would take me too long to list them all.
It’s hard to believe that we’re already at the end of August. It seems like I just arrived at the Wabi-Sabi Ranch with all my worldly goods. To be honest, it looks like it, too, since so many boxes are still waiting to be unpacked.
Some days it seems as though we’ve made a lot of progress here. Other days, not so much. It’s the waiting on others that makes it not so much. Businesses around here are in no hurry to get our business.
Perhaps the unofficial end of summer, this Labor Day weekend, will see an end to the slow and lazy days of vacations and beach outings, and we’ll finally get the answers and workers we have been seeking.
Then again, maybe not. This is the Eastern Shore and we’ve been warned many times about Eastern Shore Time. It’ll happen when it happens, and not a moment before. This place is going to teach me patience.
I suspect summer will linger here long after the Autumnal Equinox. M thinks it will cool down by mid-September or the beginning of October. I wouldn’t mind being wrong. I am looking forward to spending time exploring without the heat, the humidity, and the ever annoying insects.
I reckon that’s it for this lovely Friday at the end of August. Thank you for visiting. Welcome to my new visitors and subscribers. Hello and thank you to those of you who have been around a while. I appreciate all your visits, likes, and comments. I’m trying to get caught up here and with you. If I haven’t been around yet, hopefully I’ll visit your place soon.
Have a delightful weekend, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing.
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
