I like to be entertaining, somewhat, when I blog. I know that I don't have to be. From what I have seen, I can say anything that I want to. However, I choose not to bore people with the nastiness of life. After all we see that everyday. My problem seems to be Blogger Block. You know, like writers block. It is a very good thing that I don't get paid to write, for I would have been fired by now! I don't know how my daughter Ginny comes up with new things to write about. But then again I can't envision Ginny with a lack of something to say.
I will blame it on the heat I think. Yes that is what I will do. It has no feelings to get hurt. It is succeeding in it's own way to melt my brain. Turn it to mush. Similar to the time when my children were small, when they would nurse I always said that they were sucking the brains right out of my head. Oh the sacrifices we make for our children.
That's it. The heat. It makes me feel like a snail. Slow. Very slow. And while I have many projects floating around in my brain, my physical being has no desire to move. Alright, I'm going to give you the heads up. Cover your ears, well your eyes would probably be a better idea in this case, if you are a summer lover. I love the fall. Actually I prefer winter to summer also. Ah but since I can remember, fall has always been the time of year that excites me. Yes you heard me right. Excites.
It isn't only the pleasant temperatures that I so enjoy, but also the smells and tastes of fall as well. Apples and cinnamon. Burning leaves. Pumpkin pie. Leaves crunching under your feet. And those beautiful colors. Reds, oranges and vivid yellows. I prefer wearing a sweater to a tank top. My soft, cozy slippers to bare feet. Halloween and Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of all. Giving thanks for family and friends. Celebrating those people that mean the most to us. No gift giving involved. Just sincere gratefulness for what the Lord has bestowed upon us. It doesn't get any better then that.
I apologize if I have bored you. My thoughts can not help but turn to cooler weather. I sit hear pondering what the CEO'S of our local power companies are going to be doing with their yearly bonuses as we struggle to pay to keep our houses comfortable. I can't help but to daydream about opening the windows and doors again! Oh dear, I said I wouldn't bore you with the nastiness of life and here I go on about the lovely utility companies that are trying to , oh never mind. I am sorry. I will go outside today to look at my flowers. But I have to warn you that I will be daydreaming about fall!
