God I suck at this. It’s not that I have no talent or ideas…just no stick-to-it-ive-ness. No, I do not do well with commitment. Hell, I don’t even like to read a book series. As much as I love to read, I don’t want to commit to 6 or, God forbid, 12 to get to the finale. Trust me, I have plenty bouncing around in my head to write about I just…oh I’d rather scroll on facebook or look up recipes to try or ya know…eat. Yeah, cause I have gained some weight over the summer. Aren’t people’s appetites supposed to decrease over the summer? I’m thinking they are. But guess what??? Right again, not me. My booty has grown exponentially over the summer and it’s a good thing thick is in because I have no desire to stop it from taking over and creating a space of it’s own. And trust me when your booty gets oh so big people clear a path for it.
Anyway, my butt really has nothing to do with this blog. And let me just say before the supermarket tabloids get a hold of my commitorum metus and run with it like a star QB on an October lit field, I have no challenge in committing to my family or spouse, at least, not anymore.
However in my absence on WP I still was somewhat busy this summer. I raised a garden, canned and preserved a passel of fruits and veggies (my tomatoes produced bumper crops, though my zucchini petered out after producing only 3 squash) and I learned a thing or two about landscaping.
I did not read one book, nor did I take one single vacay, but I did help replace the floor in my utility room and I, yes I, constructed a flagstone patio complete with its own flowerbed and fountain. I’m quite proud of that.
I hope you all had a great summer and are as ready for fall as am I.
Fall is a second chance before winter bolts it’s door. It is football, festivals, caramel corn, chili, stew and soups, baking, and caramel apples. Fall always gives me the feeling of young love, high school, a life on the verge of everything. The anticipation of something wonderful…
Love and Fall always give me butterflies.
And we are never too old for butterflies.
