Summer’s Lease Hath all too short a date.
September 22nd - fairwell summer
All things are difficult before they are easy.
It seems like fall started awhile ago with Labor Day, but today is the official last day of summer. And summer is letting us know about it too. This weekend has been one of the hottest that we’ve had in awhile. It’s in the upper 80’s and the air conditioning will be on for hopefully one of the last times this summer. August was really quite a pleasant month for the most part and September has been too. July was the hottest month with many days in the 90’s.
It was a lazy summer for me and I really didn’t do much, but read a lot of books. I spent a lot of time on the sunporch and will be able to continue to use it through October. After that it’ll get too cold to be comfortable as it isn’t heated. I’ll miss those lazy porch days. It’s time to get busy once again as there will be much to do with the holidays soon to come.
The grass has continued to grow, but now leaves are falling and I do leaf duty by mulching up the leaves with my lawnmower. which is easier on the back than raking by far.
I’ll miss summer’s longer hours of day light and will probably by in bed by the time it gets dark out. So good by summer. Officially it will be Autumn tomorrow even though it might still feel like summer for awhile. I don’t mind, you can linger as long as you want. I’m not looking forward to the cold weather at all. I’m going to make the most of the nice days while we have them.
Don’t count the days, make the days count.
