Pink Summer

Now that it's getting dark outside much earlier, and darker in the wee morning hours, it's made me think about the onset of autumn. Not that I want summer to end, mind you - summer is my favorite time of year.

I like the freshness and lightness of summer. Of soft quilts, and light airy colors. Especially pink, in every shade.

The sunlight as it arrives in the afternoon on the west side of the house. How Miss Gracie plops herself into the first tiny bit of sun on the floor.

Wearing shorts and tee shirts and going barefoot. Having a big salad for dinner. Eating cold watermelon on a warm day.

Leaving the windows open and letting the fresh air float through the house. I like everything about summer.

So, I am hoping to hold onto summer as long as I can. Yes, September is just days away and that means autumn, sweaters and holidays. Oh, I'll enjoy that as well but summer is my favorite time of year. Miss Gracie's, too.
