Hey Mr. Summer are we done yet?




Who’s tired of summer?  Do you see me raising my hand?  I read in the paper that this summer in Va.  Was the hottest on record—even hotter than the previous record of the 1930’s dust bowl.  We sweltered in our homes with no electricity after the effects of a derecho.  (What, you’ve never heard of a derecho? Mr. Webster didn’t   either)

I know all of your beach lovers are having a blast, but who can spend the entire summer at the beach?  Most of us have to trudge through the thick, humid days without so much as a wisp of a sea breeze while we slather on the aloe Vera for our sunburns. 

On a personal level, summer has not been fun for me.  I had an operation on my hand the beginning of June, and then spent 3 weeks in July with the worst cold I’ve had in years.  And I’m still not 100%.  There goes my mother’s theory about catching a cold from getting a chill.

I admit it.  I am not really a fan of summer.  I much prefer the cool and sometimes brisk nights in autumn.  The leaves start to turn orange, reds, yellow and burgundy.  Football is in full swing.  Kids are back in school and holidays are looming.  Come on down Mr. Autumn…I’m waiting with baited breath.

I have mixed feelings here. Although I don't do well in the heat and can't spend time outside due to extreme allergies I'm also not keen on the cold and having the furnace running all of the time and dreary and dark days either. I like the way things look during the summer. Plants thriving and blue skies and wearing light weight clothing in pretty colors but I love the colors of autumn and the holidays during the winter months. Fall is however one of the better seasons so I'm with you. Hope you're back to 100% very soon. Hugs

I've never liked the heat and humidity...ever. This was one long summer and we broke records up here, too. Fall has always been my favorite time of year and really looking forward to it this year. ;)

My feelings exactly - but for different reasons! We rarely get a long spell of 'summery weather' and this year has been dire, far worse than usual even. So I'm always glad when we can stop pretending it's summer, with thermal vests under t-shirts!

I also feel much more like settling down to new work and so on when September comes along. Must be something to do with that being the start of the new school year over here.

I'm with you-ready for fall! Here in MS the heat is still unbearable...in the 90's with lots of humidity. I've been trying to get my husband to move with me for years. I want to go farther North, somewhere with actual seasons since we get summer with occasional snips of winter.
