A New Year

For me, the beginning of a new school year is more significant than January 1st. Although I am not teaching public school this year and do not have children attending public school, it stills feels like a fresh start.

Summertime is such a fun time! You visit family and friends often, see new things, play hard, stay up late, wear cute clothes (I like my summer clothes way more than winter ones)...

But about this time, and this year more than in the past, I am very ready for fall and the start of a 'new year.'

I'm tired. Tired of having fun. Tired of having late nights playing. Tired of going, going, going.

It's time to rest.

I'm ready to cook chili and soup for dinner. I'm ready for everyone to be in the house at by 6:00 because the sun has already gone to sleep for the night. I'm ready to dress cozy. I'm ready to go to sleep early. I'm ready to stay at home more. And I'm ready to keep up with my blog more!

Each season brings its own joys, and I am ready to enjoy what's next. :)
