Running out of Summer

Leave a comment

Time is quickly disappearing for the Summer season. I have so much to fit in yet and here we are entering the second week of August. So why not schedule some time off? So that is what I did. A total of 6 nights off the rest of the month. Now that is a way to make August count.

Now what to do with those wonderful hours of freedom? So many things leap to mind. A day trip with my better half, maybe a solo trip to the ocean, or most of the day in the hammock on the old pool patio. Should I spend an entire day carving on a piece of wood?

Each day the sun rises a little later and sets a little earlier. I’m already seeing leaves fall from the trees. The warm waters will be with us a bit longer but the nights will start to cool in another month.

I’m feeling the pressure to make the most of every warm-weather day now before they slip away into the fall.

But it’s funny, after hurting badly last week all I want to do is feel healthy and whatever else comes my way the rest of the summer is fine with me.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • As I prepare for this line of strong storms I realize I’m low on working flashlights.
  • After not being accountable all your life it’s hard to accept it late in life I guess.
  • There is a lot to be said for the word, bliss. But you don’t hear it often because the person is so happy and joyful.
  • Some things are better with time.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
