Can you believe it… August already. What the what?
I was in the great big Coscto store this week and saw Halloween costumes and I am pretty sure there was some Christmas shit too. (I wasn't about to look to closely and fall down that rabbit hole) I mean, jeeze, It's still summer and I like to think that I live a little more in the somewhat present moment. I have a hard time figuring out what I am going to be doing in 2 weeks, let alone 2 months from now. But man, seeing that stuff really sent me into a time whirl… It's just flying by so fast.
Anyway, August. One of my favorite months of the year. The farm shares are gigantic (I got corn and watermelons at the last pick up!) and the garden is bursting with so many goodies. The days are still really warm, but the nights are starting to cool off, The wild flowers are in abundance all over. Plus my Dad always comes back to Vermont in August for a long visit (he;s here now!), which means lots of family stuff, a Stem family reunion, lots of hiking, and of course lots of food eating. And it's getting close to back to school time. The littles are all getting equally exctited/depressed about the going back. I am kind of excited for them to go back too!
My goal for August.. try to check off some more of my summer bucket list and also try to buy some plane tickets to a far away land.( I hear that tickets prices this month are at the lowest they have been in years!) At the same time I want to try not to worry to much about doing a bunch of stuff.. just try to enjoy what's left of the summer. No pressure!
So what about you? Got any end of summer plans?
I'll leave you with some good internet stuff from the week.
