Summer is over, even though the temperatures are still summer-like. The colors of the leaves are lighter and some have actually fallen. You can feel it in the breeze – the changes are coming. Soon we will have our fall clothing on and jackets and the leaves will turn gorgeous colors while we sip on spicy hot apple cider while dunking the cinnamon donuts. I love fall but I hate the end of summer. I didn’t go anywhere this summer but it was pleasant here in the mid-west. The temperatures were perfect. I enjoyed my own backyard and drives into the country.
Once you are a mom whose children go to school outside the home you get ingrained further into you the school year schedule. I still like seeing the school buses go down the street and the quietness of the neighborhood during school hours. My youngest son and his wife are doing an amazing thing. They decided to go to college. D has a couple of years finished and K has his basics done. This semester they went big league. They moved into family housing on campus of a university in the mid-west along with their two year old daughter and another daughter to be born this fall. I admire them greatly, especially the pregnant one. Of course they realized early on that they needed me still to stay with their daughter a few days a week. Needed me, Mammy. I made my son say it three time, “We need you”. So I go there and stay with my little buddy and it’s fun. She came to my house last week and I got to dislocate her elbow. Yup. Good Mammy. Not. I was devastated. But life is full of always learning. I learned that this is pretty common and easily fixed. So easily fixed that there is a video on youtube to show you how to fix this. Apparently it can easily happen again until they outgrow this…….thing.
I even have been really bad at my homework – blogging. I am behind reading blogs I follow. Forgive me fellow bloggers.
I am behind writing. I must forgive myself. But I have two new ideas for books. Good grief.
So once again Summer days have gone by and the newness of an autumn, yet to discover, is upon us. I wish you all good health and old and new dreams coming true………
And enjoy this classic song as summer sadly comes to an end.
