My celebrations this week are short and simple:
I had a great birthday! We played mini-golf, ate ice cream cake and enjoyed quiet, calm home-time. It was just what I wanted. I am especially grateful for my sweetie who made the day; my parents and in-laws who called me up to sing Happy Birthday, and all my friends who texted and posted happy messages on my Facebook page. I felt loved and that's the best thing to feel on your birthday!
Summer Crickets Every night when the sun starts to slink down in the sky and the air turns a little cooler the irritating buzz of cicadas is replaced by the smooth serenade of crickets. I've been driving with my windows down a lot lately- it's better than anything playing on the radio.
Summer's Almost Over My apologies to the kids who will soon be trudging back to school but for the rest of us who have to work all summer it's been pretty rotten. The heat, the frequent rain storms and sauna-like humidity and all those damned cicadas I mentioned earlier. Plus the two giant weddings that managed to suck up more otherwise free time than I even thought possible. I am SO incredibly grateful for this summer to be over- really, I struggle to put it into words.
Plus, you know- fall is my favorite season so i'm gonna start getting giddy soon...
