While I couldn’t wait for Autumn to arrive last year because it has been such an awfully hot summer in 2018, this year I find myself already missing summer although it’s not really over yet.
And it doesn’t help that the weather forecast is predicting that this will be the last warm weekend!
I wonder where summer has gone to? Why is it always flying by way too fast?
It feels like I didn’t properly take advantage of my summer holidays, that I haven’t been out in the park often enough, that I didn’t eat my share of ice cream, and that I haven’t even had the time to wear all my summer dresses!!
And now the air is already getting crispy even though the sun is still shining, and I find myself wearing socks again which is so NOT okay with me because I want to show off my new nail polish! (I know, BIG problem! 😉 )
And this week, when I did some grocery shopping, what did I find during my hunt through the aisles?
F*****g gingerbread!!! Can you believe it?! They’re already selling Christmas sweets!!
I feel like a child trying to stem myself against strong parental arms that are tearing me away from the playground when I’m just having the best of times.
I want to scream: “No! No! You can’t make me! NO, I WON’T HAVE SUMMER TAKEN AWAY FROM ME!!!”
And just like a child I have to watch helplessly as the temperatures drop, and drop and drop…
So, I made this little watercolor of a jug of lemon ice tea, hoping that just by looking at it, it will evoke summer memories when it’s actually going to be so cold that I will tightly clutch my mug of tea or coffee with both hands instead.
How are you coping with End-of-summer blues? Any tips?
