The Late Summer Somethings

Late August is a lovely season all its own.  

We're still savoring the lazy days of summer, yet can't help but think about our rapidly filling September calendars.  Even while we're sweating to death, the decorating blogs are in full-fledged autumn mode and we're shopping for warmer clothes, pumpkin candles, and piles of {expensive} school supplies. 

Let's all take a deep breath.

There's no rush to careen ahead at full speed.  Let's purpose to be fully present in this moment.  To appreciate the simple joys that are still within reach.  Flip flops and tee shirts.   An ice cream cone, a walk in the woods, a leisurely lunch with a friend, a bike ride, a day trip, a swim.  

For these days will be gone in the blink of an eye. 

So go ahead ... grab yourself an iced tea and head out the screen door toward the hammock.  It's been awaiting your leisurely arrival.
