Ah, Summer what power you have to make us suffer and like  it…

AUGUST 4TH- my get up and go got up and went

There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues….’

Eddie Cochran

This week has been a tough one for me.  Ive got the summertime blues or blahs, whatever you want to call them.   I dont want to do much of anything, and I havent.  Nothing seems to hold my interest for any length of time.  Unless its a long afternoon nap.  Ha !

Its like reverse SAD disease that usually grips me in the mid winter when all I want to do is hide away, hibernate and sleep the days away.  

Life is just to short for that as far as Iconcerned, and I am concerned. 

Ive tried counting my blessings which is usually my cure for when Im in a slump, but nothing has worked so far.  They say the best cure  is just to get busy and do something, especially something for someone else.

I figure its the result of the heat and humidity weve been having.  My body and mind just couldnt adjust the way it should have, so now Ive somehow go to get up and above it. The older we get, its harder to do than when we were young.

The saddest thing about summer is that is will soon come to an end.  Just the thought of shorter days coming is enough to make me SAD.   SO IM trying to pick something out to make fall extra special this year.  Before we know it Leaf Peeping Season will be coming,  so meanwhile I need to celebrate summer and all the fun and beauty of the season before its over.

Meanwhile, Im pretty sure,

'there aint no cure for the summertime blues.

I'm so SAD to see summer go, are you?

That humidity can be draining! Good thing is there are probably lots of great weather days ahead before the end of summer so just relax and do nothing and enjoy these days and they too will pass!

AHHHHH, now I have company, I have felt so 'unnecessary' myself for a few days, but I have kicked the slump because I am back into my book. I KNOW the slump for you is temporary, so you will bounce back in short notice.

Okay I am with you - I have been fighting 'summer' too. It is just so long and so hot and so humid. I read something that the longest hottest day is over - the first day of summer - now the days are getting shorter and we are heading to fall - my favorite season.
Love, sandie

Just yesterday afternoon my hubby was questioning why he feels so lethargic; drained, even. This has never happened before, but then, he's not accustomed to the humidity. So glad you're not trying to 'push through' and taking good care of yourself!
