Wow! It's the last day of summer? Now where did the summer go? I bet you hear that a lot! probably you think it and say it too! Summer always goes by too fast for me.
When I was a kid it went by too fast, and then school started. As a young adult I tried to get all the gusto I could out of summer, camping, fishing, swimming, barbeques, picnics, and with my kids of course. At a later part of my younger adult life, I worked a lot so summer was work, work, go hang out with my sister in her pool, work some more.
Then as a disabled adult, i just enjoy sitting in the sun, swimming, seeing the sun shine,hearing the birds sing, watching my grand children play, taking nice summer rides, barbeques, visiting with friends or family, and not freezing and hurting so bad in my joints.
But the last day of summer is like the last scene in a good love story. Fall is pretty for maybe 5 days? But for me the cooler weather, shorter days, and less sunshine,is reminder of getting older, like the fall in my life now. Don't get me wrong, I am very happy, and glad for each day. But my body gets these aches and pains in the fall, and I suppose that is why I dread the cooler weather, the end of summer coming and knowing it's new arrival will be several months away.
So I am going to enjoy today, and say good bye to my bestie, summer, until we meet again, Lord willing. It has been a wonderful summer this year, meeting new friends, a new love, and settling in a new apartment with a marvelous swimming pool, that I enjoyed tremendously. The days were warm, but not extremely hot here, and I have been feeling good!
I hope your summer was remarkable! Here are some pictures of my summer. Well IDK what happened, but some of them didn't post. lol Oh well..... computers. :) Pam
