Endless Summer

Tomorrow?  August.

You know what that means, don't you?  There's an entire month of summer vacation left, 2 months of summer weather to survive, and 3 months until the mosquitoes stop biting us.  (Yes, Halloween - if we're lucky, we get a frost by then.)

Been there, done that already...
Now, I don't know about you, but we've really taken summer by the horns here.  I mean, we swung right into it, going to the pool, attending band camp, eating Italian ices and popsicles, ordering pizza for dinner (6 dollars on Monday nights!), toasting marshmallows, family camping, family name it, we've done it.  Every. Single. Day.  For 6 weeks.

August?  Simply redundant.  The bloom is off the rose, as far as this summer season goes.  Still in the 90's, still going to the pool, still eating popsicles...

You know, I think I'm already dreaming of a white Christmas.

Ahh...that feels better already...

  1. "August? Simply redundant."

    You hit the nail on the head.

  2. "Still in the 90s" just makes me jealous! I'd like to see 90 again someday... I think that would constitute a cold front!!

  3. I like summer. I don't understand this post at all...

  4. You know, amy, I've spent a summer up where you live. It's not an endurance test up there. What you folks called humidity, we called a beautiful day. Also? You're right by a beach. With Del's frozen lemonade. So, really, I don't expect you to understand, you untrammeled Northerner, you...

  5. And if you sense that that comment seems to be reeking of jealousy, you would be correct.

  6. Ah, summer seems okay to me today even though there's another heat warning. I'm home alone until Wednesday around 4 pm!! Unbelievable. Sweat is tolerable. Amazing what sleep and solitude will do : -). WIshing you some of both.

  7. Ah yes, south of the Mason Dixon, it's a marathon, not a sprint. And frankly, I'm ready to step right off of the marked race course for a Dunkin' Donuts iced coffee and some fall leaves.

    But neither of us is "done" enough to start homeschooling early, are we? ;)

    I feel like a moron that I've never read your blog before! Like somehow I missed my doppelganger, even though I work with her or something.
