Today is the last Monday of July. Yes, that’s right…the very last one.
A very big part of me is wondering how July flew by so very quickly and the sadness that there is more summer behind me than there is before me is encroaching on my soul.
Perhaps it is because I just finished reading The Long Winter for the umpteenth time that I am feeling today very much as Pa did at the opening of the book – I need to “make hay while the sun shines.” I feel like there is so much to get done and the time to complete it is quickly waning.
So, today there is no rest for me as my list is long and I have so much to get done before the day is over.
I hope your weekend was full of summery goodness. Happy last Monday of July, everyone!
Today I have to get some groceries and then my Monday will be the Sunday I didn’t have. The chores are all done and I don’t have to cooked because of all the left overs 🙂 Oh and the sun is out!!
Good luck with all of your chores! I have mixed feelings about the end of July…my vacation is two weeks away but as you said…summer is flying by!
I swear I feel fall in the air today. MY that went fast!
Isn’t amazing how winter seems to creep by but summer flies, even with the longer days? I am thankful that I have today and tomorrow off to spend with my kiddo before she leaves for a week of camp, and I’m going to do my best to squeeze as much as I can into the next two days.
How come summer always goes by so much faster than winter?!?
I keep telling myself that autumn can be nice…
This morning when I got up at my regular time . . . I needed to turn the lights on! The days are, indeed, getting shorter. But I’m going to soak up every moment of summer first!!!
I really do want to re-read those books 🙂 and our local schools start back a week from today. We must indeed soak up the warm sunshine while we can…
Beautiful summer flowers in the photo. Enjoy.
Those flowers are gor-ge-ous!
I was just thinking about “make hay while the sun shines” yesterday. I was in an Amish area of PA and saw 10 or more farmers raking their hay with horse-drawn equipment, but there were also plenty of threatening storm clouds in the sky. Poor farmers are having a tough time getting hay baled in all this wet weather. 🙁
