These past few days have been so busy that time has flown on by. Visitors, guests, events & things to do. The last few days just zipped on past. And now, I am in the process of 'learning the books' for Lawrene's business.
We have a new accountant & he is coming right to the house to spend time teaching me & I'm so happy with what I can learn. Our last accountant was impossible to get a hold of & did not have any time to show us anything...or correct mistakes. So this is all we were waiting for & more. He will be back here again in about an hour for another day with me so it will be a busy one.
Its still hot outside but I'm already bored of the heat. Autumn has always been my favourite season & as soon as August hits, I'm gearing up for fall. Somewhat like Christmas I guess. I anticipate it so much so as soon as November comes I'm ready to start decorating & playing the carols. Christmas Nut? I think so! So it goes with Fall. Because it gets so hot here in the summer, I don't even enjoy going outside in the heat...and I love to be outside, so that's why I anticipate cooler weather sooner. So I can go back to doing all the things I love. I haven't kayaked for weeks because the tourists are out on the lake in their boats by 7am, chopping up the waters & making noise. Its too hot for hiking & the risk of rattlesnakes in the summer is significantly higher so I don't hike. Even taking a dip in the lake can be out of the question in the summer. The boats churn up the water so much that the shores get pretty gross.
Not trying to sound whiney, its just that Summer is my fourth favourite season, and its followed by my Number One so I'm ready for it to get a little closer. Thinking beautiful fall colors, warmer clothes, cooler nights & crisp mornings, perfect for kayaking, a jog or a walk with my camera.
But, for another month or so, I'll try to enjoy the summer sun. I'll tolerate the onslaught of tourists. I'll enjoy the beautiful cool of my air conditioning. I'll be thankful for the long light & the warm evenings to sit outside. I'll get some more sun on my skin & it will lighten my hair a bit more.
Summer seems to be everyone's favourite. What do you love about it? If not, what is your favourite?
