It has been a pleasure being a part of your season for the past 12 weeks. You have given us nice long days, warm sunshine and a bounty of locally grown fruits and vegetables to choose from! (Speaking of which, I stopped into Barnes and Noble for a copy of Dr. Furhman’s book, Eat to Live, but they were all out so I ordered a copy, and was kindof happy it’s been so popular). Personally, I committed to lots of swimming and I feel great about having kept that commitment. With a light work schedule, I got to tackle lots of home projects and purged lots of garbage which always feels awesome!
But alas, all good things must some day end and the season’s they go round and round. It’s time to set our sights on the beautiful tapestry of colors that we call fall. The cooler temperatures may make it harder to swim, but at the same time, make it all the more inviting to hit the streets walking, running, bike riding, skating, playing ball or whatever your favorite outdoor activity might be. After watching the First Lady show off her rope jumping skills, I am definitely putting that on my “things to conquer outdoors” list for fall.
What’s on your vision board for fall? As we say good-bye to the crazy, lazy, hazy days of summer, let us also plant the seeds that we can sow all through autumn.
Thank you, summer, for never, ever disappointing me. I except you as you are despite your flaws of extreme heat, too much rain and terrifying thunder that makes thebigreddog think he can somehow hide himself under things like the fridge. I am eternally grateful for you and will be as happy as I am every year, when you return in 9 months. Until then, I will find the best in each changing season, but they will never, ever, be you.
