Ta-Ta to Triple Digits

While I am very thankful that we were recently able to relocate to Texas, I don't think I will every get accustomed to the triple digit temperatures in our area. I am so looking forward to the cooling affects of September - at least I hope they will be cooling.

Air conditioning is truly a miracle and a blessing. I am thankful for it in our car, our home, my place of employment and just about every other location I've been for the last 2 1/2 months.

But...I'm ready to venture outside again. I long to stand in the sunlight without feeling like I'm getting an instant sunburn. I want to NOT sweat. I want to take a walk and have a nice cooling breeze blow through my hair. Ah, it's the stuff of dreams.

I know, I know. I'm a baby. Dang right! Bring on Autumn. I'm beginning to think that Summer's only purpose is to help us appreciate more greatly the wonders of Fall. What other purpose does all that heat and dryness serve?

Farewell August. I will not miss you or your heat. I am truly thankful to see you go.
