Goodbye, almost, to August

I can’t believe today is 8/28. I believe the Chinese believe that 8 is a lucky number.

I’m not feeling that lucky.

Yes, I get up in the morning, thank God, and stand on two feet, albeit one messed up ankle and tendon.I am blessed with two lovely fur-girls that I have to cherish every minute with because I KNOW how fleeting life is.Wednesday Jim and I will be married 14 years.I know a bunch of folks that didn’t see that amount of time together, either due to illness, death, or divorce.

I just have a little malaise at the end of a summer season, even though I bitch and moan about tourists,well, that hasn’t changed.It’s the little things.The sun coming down earlier.The end of the summer crops we planted in sight.Missing my folks for another season, and waiting to find out what is happening regarding my job.Life seems to be just a series of waiting and hurrying up, and then the time is gone. I truly am thankful for everything.

Oh, to make the clock go a wee bit slower.
