By now you are aware that it is August, I hope, and I don’t know how I feel about it. Summer ending. I vacillate between “get it over with already” and “but I still haven’t tried the pecan caramel ice cream Carolina Cone’s has been advertising since June!”
I’m ready for cooler weather, for leaving the doors and windows open all weekend, for taking a walk outside and not having to change my shirt afterwards due to major pit stains.
But at the same time, I feel like I haven’t taken advantage of summer yet. Like I just let it go by, unnoticed, uncelebrated. And so I’ve been lingering over images that say “summer” to me.
This is where Ariel and Eric, from Little Mermaid fame, live (or should):
Dat arch, tho.
I guess it’s silly to mourn summer before it’s really gone. I still have time to get that ice cream, right? And who says I can’t eat ice cream in September — heck, December – if I wanted to?
Don’t try to stop me.
