For one reason or another, this year has really been messed up emotionally for us, and this in turn has had an effect on the rhythm of our year.
In most years summer is a time of ease and relaxation; a time to exhale and kick back and soak it all up before the weather changes, life gets a bit harder when winter looms. This year I feel as though I’ve been catching my breathe and being stressed out and worried and anxious and sad a long time.
As such I’ve got to this point in the year where I feel ready for summer, and…. it’s effectively over! Gah! Playing catch up and squeezing out the last drops of summer, feeling the ease and enjoying the sun. And appreciating a roasting day at the shore, against all advice of the weather forecasts!
I’m not done with summer yet!
