It ain't over 'til the Fat Lady sings

And I ain't warbling yet!

I am holding on to summer with both fists. I have not even ordered any school books, just sat down this afternoon and made some long over-due decisions, ordering needs to be done tonight.


This summer went far too fast.

I am not ready to teach.
I am not ready to go to bed at a reasonable hour, and wake up before 9.
I am not ready for assignments, and lessons, and doing my housework on a schedule.

I want to knit, crochet, read, daydream, nap, snack....just generally be a useless lump.

Sunday school is also starting back up and I find myself commited to teaching on the 28th of this month, doing a program for CRAFT night on the 12th of Sept., and being a mentor for the Jr. High girl's SS this year.

Oh well.

I will enjoy it all once I get out of this lazy frame of mind. I will loosen my grip on summer's fading wings, slowly, so as not to tear them. And I will whirl with autumn's leaves for a season, then wrap myself in winter's cozy mantle, snuggling into the warmth and comfort of family and routine.

But summer will tug at my heart, and the parting will be hard.

Bring on the snow...I'm more than ready!

Oops! Gotta have Halloween in there firs. Preferably a warmer Halloween 'cause it always sucks to have to wear a coat over your costume. *grin*
