So, I guess, summer started. The temperatures today give a slight taste of summer heat, tank tops and the need for refreshing water bodies. Time always ticks on. The other day I read that for parents the days are long but the years are short. That is also how it feels for me. How do years go by so fast?
July and Augusta are, hands-down, my favorite months of the year. The weather is likely very good, there is vacation time built in somewhere, Maine looks its best, bucolic and charming, the days are long and the sunshine plenty.
We are not even 10 minutes into summer, but the clock keeps ticking towards the end of it. Like climbing a mountain and going downhill again. With this year’s late start into the summer, it feels short and precious. But, hey, today is good and let’s make it a summer day to remember.
