Yesterday was a welcome sunny day, not too hot, clear skies. I took the opportunity to sit in the back yard and enjoy the not-hotness for a while, as I know I won't have many not-hot days from now until probably November.
I'm glad it's summer, but it doesn't feel as free or as gleeful as usual. This year I've got a job which doesn't really take summers off. I certainly have some flexibility and can also do work from home, if needed. But I AM very glad to be free to get up early and not have to all rush off to school. It's a good change in pace and I'm sure I'll learn the new rhythms of summer time and work time.
I think being a teacher all those years spoiled me to getting off work when the children did. What a blessing!
What does summer mean for you? Does your schedule change or stay the same? What things do you look forward to in this season?
