I was just thinking I sure have been a slacker lately, not one post this month so far, what is the deal anyway??
I guess I got no excuse, is that proper English??? I got no?? It seems that when August rolls around a little bit of depression sets in, not bad mind you but just the reality that summer is coming to a close, school will start soon and then along comes the cooler fall weather. I don't mind fall and I'm sure I have alot of followers there but I really hate winter.
The days are already shorter and the evenings have just a touch of coolness that makes one think of sweaters. Have you ever noticed that the smell of the air changes too?? I think each season here in Michigan has its own smell. Maybe I just have a sensitive nose... I have also noticed the birds are starting to flock in big bunches that is another thing that happens when the season starts to cool down. Maybe they are discussing which flight patterns they will take south.
The hummers have been visiting the feeders more frequently too, tanking up with energy for a long flight. I hate to see them leave they are so comical to watch.
I am looking forward to the week-end, we have a family reunion and will be gathering at a not to far away family camp ground. Some will be staying in a huge stone house and others will be camping in their own campers or trailers. We will be catching up, sharing meals, swimming, riding horses, and sitting around the campfire for two nights. Even my 91 year old sweet mother -in-law will be going and she is so excited to be seeing all her family in one place at one time.
I'll be clicking the shutter so should have some pictures for future posts..
