What Happened To Summer?

Did she call?

I can’t believe August is over with fall in the wings.  It’s as if we’ve had the Reader’s Digest version of summer.  Or one with crib notes.

It makes me wonder how Kate’s frogs must feel, like they’re checking out of her Pond Hotel much too early. “Whadda-ya mean it’s Labor Day, our lily pads aren’t even cold yet.”

Even my little sleeveless dresses are in a swoon. Could have sworn I heard my little black Theory say to my navy Agnes B.,”We’ve hardly gone anywhere. And now she’s getting ready to put us away.”

“Don’t panic, maybe not. You forget about Indian Summer.”

“No I haven’t, but you know how anal she is, her friends even say it.  We’ll be cleaned, pressed and stashed in those smelly mothballs before you could say, the calla lilies are in bloom again, or not.”

“I did notice her Xmas cards already came.”

“See, what did I tell ya.”

I can deal with my dresses dissing me, it’s my shoes I’m worried about.

    Last week I saw Halloween candy in the grocery store and quickly averted my eyes. Like an ostrich, if I don’t see it, it’s not really here.
    I agree that my pretty little sleeveless dresses don’t see daylight as often as I’d like. As for shoes, Susannah, I see the kids in school wearing flip-flops in the dead of winter. I want to rush over, slather their cold dry feet in moisturizer, and put socks on them!

  3. The sign of fall here is a teenage girl with fur lined Uggs in 90 degree weather. (You know those kids always want to wear their new stuff RIGHT AWAY!) Haven’t seen it yet but I did see pumpkins, Halloween stuff and even a little Christmas. I averted my eyes so I wouldn’t have to kill anyone.

  4. Where we live, summer just gets started in late August and into September… and sometimes into October. The tourists are gone, the kids are back in school, and we have some of our best weather of the season. What drives me crazy is that the local retail shops start stocking fall and winter clothes when I’m gearing up for summer.

  5. On July 30th candy corn made an appearance in the isles. I’ve concluded that they will be the only remaining food source after the armageddon.
    I love the chit chat amongst your wardrobe….they clearly know you well.

    Christmas trees and decorations already in Lowes a few weeks ago. Up high but still…I have to buy Holiday candy months early or my favorite is gone by the time the holiday arrives! ~Elle

    Yesterday, I received an email blast from my favorite multicultural greeting card company, enticing me to buy cards for the December holidays. Not ready yet.
