Winding Down

August is winding down. The Olympics? Winding down. The summer...uh huh, that too. And if we look at the calendar, the year is winding down.

Huh?

How did that happen? I'm still getting out my summer skirts and the nights are turning cool. Not really, but that's how it feels. I really wish I could stretch time, to make it last longer so we could enjoy it more fully. I'm totally into the swing of summer, loving every moment of it, and here it is--almost fall!

AHH!!

Scary, no?

When you look back on the summer of '08 will you smile? Cry? Scowl? Or will you be like me, doing all three yet wishing it had been a few weeks longer?

My dad is visiting with us and we're having a wonderful time. I surely don't want to see his visit end. My head knows that's going to happen but my heart...well, that's another story. It's a stubborn heart and is going to savor every fabulous moment of this visit...even if it is, unfortunately, winding down.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! :)

Yes, I feel like that. Although also miserable because we have had no summer to speak of. I am sort of looking forward to Autumn and hoping for better days.

There is something so still and beautiful about September and October.

I love the fall so can't feel too bad about summer winding down:)Hate the heat but have enjoyed the last few days of rain and wind, thanks to Fay.

I'm glad you got to spend some time with your dad.
