The weather is changing.
We’re digging out jeans and hoodies.
Math books replace video games.
Suddenly fall is here – the apples and pumpkins and pears are ripe.
But wait a minute! Where did summer go?
What happened to all those amazing blog posts that were floating in my head but never quite got written?
Like the one when Pedro and his sweetie went to the amusement park and he was so twitterpated that he forgot to secure his almost new iphone.
They found it in several pieces under the Tornado roller coaster.
That was a costly mistake.
Or the amazing posts about all my garden produce.
Green beans. Zucchini. Yellow squash. Cucumbers. Sweet corn. Melons. Tomatoes. Peppers. Kohlrabi. Lettuce. Radish. Broccoli.
And the one about my flower garden. Yes – I have a flower garden! With beautiful flowers that make my heart happy.
An actual garden – not just planters. And the sweetest rain gauge ever.
But those posts never got written.
And now summer is over.
Gone in a whirlwind of work and play.
Loads of laundry on the line.
Yummy meals on the grill.
Miles of lawn mowing.
Hours in the garden, planting, weeding and harvesting.
Making memories with family.
County Fair then State Fair.
Hundreds of jalapeno poppers.
Good books on a hot summer afternoon.
But I blinked and it’s over.
Gone in a heart beat.
Packed to the brim and running over.
But it was all good, my friends. Really, really good.

The seasons, they are a-changin’! 🙂
It all sounds wonderful and that you too time to savor it is the most important thing.
