Does the summer seem like it is flying by to you? Why is that? Winter drags on and on, seeming like it will never end, but summer seems to end before it has barely begun.
We have been having early fall like weather here this past week. Daytime highs have been in the seventies and the nights have been in the fifties. It has felt great, but I want to feel summer's steamy weather. I want to know that it is actually summer so that I can have those summer memories when I am once again feeling the cold of winter. The weather forecasters say we are having a summer version of the polar vortex. That really concerns me. Does that mean that we will continue to have the polar vortex sweeping down through the upcoming winter? UGH!!!
Okay, I just saw some leaves that were changing to red. Please summer, come back!!
I have as usual been doing a lot of reading. I just finished the latest Karen White book, A Long Time Gone. Do you read her books? I think this may be her best one yet. I found out she was here doing a book signing a few weeks ago and I missed her. I would have loved to meet her. I took the book and dropped it off at my mom's this morning so she can get a start on it. I keep her well supplied with library books.
The morning walking has been going good. I get out every morning around seven and yesterday I got up to 45 minutes. This morning it was raining so I went and walked in the Peddlers Mall where I have my booth. It is huge in there and as I had to go clean up my booth I figured I might as well get my walk in.. Someone bought an antique table from me yesterday and I knew they probably just took everything off and laid it on the floor in the middle of the booth. I was right. What a mess. You couldn't even get to the back of my booth.
The rest of the week has been pretty much the same old, same old. Thrifting, auctions, and yard sales. One of my favorite finds of the week was this huge, heavy, and gorgeous white Red Cliff soup tureen. As much as I would love to keep it, it will be going into my Etsy shop in the next few days for some other lucky person.
So, what have you been up to this week? Is your weather similar to mine or have you been enjoying typical summer temps?
