How’s your summer going so far? It’s a bit crazy because I am slowly starting to see back to school stuff in stores and online and I’ve even seen the dreaded “holiday” word thrown about. I guess in retail you have to think months ahead, but c’mon…really? I know that for kids in some states “back to school” is only a month away (how weird is it to go back to school in August?), but I feel like we just started here in New York. We still have 2 whole months of savoring summer fruits and produce, swimming in pools and oceans, and a trip to look forward to.
But I will acknowledge that I’m starting to come out of this puddle of unmotivated energy, something that I’ve been drowning in for the past 2 months. Normally this doesn’t emerge till September, that glorious month of new beginnings and cooler weather, but despite my desire to want to slow summer down I guess I am being chased by that nagging feeling of needing to do more and getting things done (yeah, there’s that evil “holiday” word creeping in again!).
But before it slips away, do enjoy those farmer’s market heirloom tomatoes and basil picked from your own potted garden. Like everything seasonal, it’s fleeting, but it does come with the comforted fact that we can look forward to them every year.
