Saying Goodbye to an Old Friend

This week I've finally had to say goodbye to a dear friend of mine...


My friend's name?


SUMMER


Yes, summer is over and I am devastated. At the beginning of this week I was still able to wear just a t-shirt to work and flip-flops at night. However, mid-week it got so cold that I brought out the huge comfy down comforter and threw it on my bed. I went from sleeping with one blanket to three blankets!!!


Yesterday morning I went out to my car and there was ice on the windows! Not the kind of ice that takes a long time to defrost, but ice nonetheless.

And the final notice that my friend was gone?

I had to dig out my nice, heavy, warm coat this morning to wear to work! I couldn't just wear a sweatshirt this morning, I had to wear a COAT!!!

Oh, the memories I share with my friend....barefeet in the warm, green grass....a cool breeze on a warm day....flip-flops for months on end....open windows all day and all night long....air conditioning in Sadie (that's my car!)....swimming....long days of daylight...

Now, my acquaintance has come to visit....Mr. Winter...and he is EARLY!!! Ms. Fall should be here right now...sweatshirt wearing times. I think that she got bumped off by Mr. Winter and she should file a complaint with the local police department. I think Mrs. Spring and Ms. Summer should get together and put a hit out on Mr. Winter...maybe we'd find him buried in concrete at the bottom of a nasty, dirty river....oh, a girl can dream!

Ice already? Yikes! Since moving to NC, I've only had to scrap my windows maybe 3-4 times a season. Of course it helps that I don't have to leave for work until 8:30.

I think there was a conspiracy between Mr. Winter and your friend Summer to bump off Ms. Fall, because she hasn't made it to California yet, either...we're still being inundated with Summer.

We've had some frost but no ice yet. Not really looking forward to this winter....supposed to be worse than last winter (we got 100+ inches of snow last year).
