While the calendar may say September and Starbucks (and everyone else) may have rolled out the pumpkin spice #PSL everything, here in Texas it still feels like summer. I did pull a few fall decorations out today, but it’s definitely not sweater weather here. More like just Sweat weather, or Sweatember!
Summer is here and after a year+ of COVID lockdowns, restrictions, grocery shortages, and masks, the world is ready to get out. Out to eat. Out to the movies. Out in the sun. Out to travel or see friends. Or just to get on with their lives. I, myself, have been ready for some time now to travel or just get back to normalcy, but these words are often easier said than done for a variety of reasons.
Obviously this post is a little late, as we are now in the 3rd month of 2021! I have started so many posts the last few months, only to get pulled away into something else. I am juggling some extra duties at work these days, as well as helping care for my mom after moving her across the country to be near me. So writing, painting, and other hobbies that give my life a sense of normalcy have taken a back seat.
And then 2021 has been a bit of a kick in the teeth for those of us living in Texas. Plus getting the second shot of my COVID-19 vaccine has caused a fibro-flare and perpetual exhaustion.
Even changing out my letter board has gone from weekly to monthly, or whenever I can find a few spare minutes. But here’s one from the New Year I am finally getting around to sharing.
“Every day is a fresh start…every sunrise is a new adventure.”
