I see summer coming ...

My dad used to say, "The older you get, the faster time flies." I was in high school then and could not imagine time going fast. When you're in high school, every class feels like it's twice as long as it really is and there's never enough time for homework.

Here I am some forty years later and I now know what he meant. The days melt into each other and I find I have to stop and think in the morning to remember what day it is. I hear the sprinklers go on at 4:30 AM, so I know it's Thursday. But, the rest of the days of the week move by in a blur.  It seems it was just Valentine's Day and Christmas, for cryin' out loud!

Life is just way too busy and I think THAT is what makes the time go by so fast.

So, here we are in the middle of May already and summer is looming on the horizon. Next weekend is Memorial Day already, the "unofficial" start of summer! 

What are we doing this summer? No plans for a vacation. Yet. It's so hot and humid in Florida in the summer time, so my darling husband is never interested in outdoor activities during these sultry summer months. 

I know this, though ... it'll fly by. It's not even June yet and I know I'll wake up one morning and realize summer has come and gone yet again. C'mon summer! I'm thinking the beach may be my favorite place this ear. Being by the water with a gentle tropical breeze will do wonders for the spirit!
